We began the summer 2016 marathon with a couple of glorious weeks hanging out in Calgary with Liz and Greg and Russ and Layla and even got in a few visits with Dave. The weather was beautiful so Steve got the deck painted and a few other odd jobs done around house. Liz is still off on maternity leave so we did some local excursions to the kids favourite spots. We even took in The Calgary Stampede for the very first time as it was senior’s day so we got in free; probably the only reason we would visit the stampede.
We had to leave a few days before Russ’s 3rd birthday but we did a little celebration, with a Spiderman cupcake that I had promised him early in the visit, and Grandpa put together his trampoline.
