On Friday, we drove an hour and a half up to Red Deer to get my brother, Aaron. From there, we drove another hour and a half north to the provincial capital, Edmonton, where we spent the day seeing sights and shopping. Here's a picture of Aaron and me sitting on the steps of the legislature, where we had a tour. (Hint: You wanted to see me with dark hair? Here it is... I still don't like it, but am getting used to it...)
Today, we drove four hours to the Columbia Ice fields, where we saw the glaciers and spent some time playing in the snow. Here's Elaine and Adrian on the ice fields...
Tomorrow we will spend the day in Banff and Lake Louise, before Aaron has to head back to Red Deer to get ready for work on Monday.
Then, I have Monday and Tuesday with my cousins, before they head off to southern Ontario (Toronto area) to spend time with our sister and younger brother there.
Although Adrian was here last year, his Mum (my namesake) hasn't been here since I was about a year old, so needless to say, she has a lot of catching up to do! It has been a wonderful visit so far and we seem to be going from early morning until late at night, but that is OK... It seems to be going well!
Now that I've given a quick update, I'm off to bed... Tomorrow is another busy day.
I haven't had much time lately to catch up on blogs. I'll be back in the swing of things next week and I'll look forward to catching up on blogs then... Promise!
