Wow! What a busy few days I just had and I was on vacation.
V A C A T I O N.
It was a whirlwind of running here and there and traffic and excitement and giggles (and yes a few stressful moments).
I had a few days off of work and packed up the kids and headed south to my sister’s for a few days. Our schedule: Calgary Zoo, Olds Pool and whatever else we could find to do and keep the kids busy. We did! Or, let me rephrase that. My kids kept her kids busy…. And tired.
We did the zoo early enough to see the NEW penguin exhibit ( and only had to wait in line for 30 minutes!)
Saw pretty northern Canadian birds, wolves, cougars and elephants. Gloria the hippo was outside sunning herself with a friend so she was easy to spot and the giraffe was busy having a snack inside. Adorable little black and white monkeys gave us a chuckle at how cute they were napping on a log. It was a great visit to the zoo. I highly recommend it!
We also did the pool at Olds and I have to give a shout out to Miss S first off as we finally persuaded her to try the big waterside all by herself just once… and she did it…. She flipped around a few times before reaching the bottom but she did it. Isabella was a pro at it. Waving and smiling at us every time she flew down it.
We also did a few backyard water fights which I’m surprised Miss S got enjoyment out of.
It was a great couple of days off Now it’s back to the grind and opening up of the shop!
