Fun, Fast, and sometimes Furious

These pictures were taken last week when the girls and I went to the Provincial Dinosaur Park with its spectacular hoodoos in the Badlands of Alberta. Can you believe the sign about the snakes? Of course I will not run them over, but feel sorry for them? Never! Later we visited their new museum and saw their interactive Dinosaur exhibits and learned how the first settlers lived.

Later in the week, we went to Arwen's school where she had show and tell and told all the children about her trip to Puerto Rico and Florida. The rest are of us and even Saffron S. Snowflake having fun. Don't you wonder what the S stands for?

Banff and Beyond!

Rose Borkent, Arwen, Zanneke, and I went to the mountains on Friday and stayed at the very comfortable Falcon Crest Lodge in Canmore. Rose drove us all the way and was as pleasant as could be even when we hit some hour long traffic in Calgary. She insisted on looking at the positive side of it and was very forgiving of those cutting in front of us saying, well, only to be fair ... and she would say some to excuse their rudeness. I had to quote Jane Austen and say, they can't both be right. The quote I remembered came from Pride and Prejudice.

Enjoy the pictures of Banff!
