The final part of our two weeks with Mark, Hayley and Ethan. The time went so fast it's hard to believe and we are already looking forward to the next time.
We took little Ethan to the Calgary tower to test his bravery on the glass floored observation deck and enjoy lunch in the rotating restaurant, click here for the full story
Prince's Island Park is a beautiful green area close to down town Calgary though you would never know it once you are there, a great play area in the middle of the Bow river, click here for pics
The small mountain village of Canmore is 50 minutes from Calgary and has the most spectacular views from any of its streets, totally surrounded by mountains it rivals Banff for location and scenery. Click here for the pics
The blog has been quiet for two weeks because Mark, Hayley and Ethan came out to see us and our time was better spent with them to be documented later. Sarah shopped until even her own feet hurt as the full excitement of having Hayley here to drag around the stores was unleashed, though they are as bad as each other I think. Mark and I stayed at home watching the football and entertaining Ethan during the shopping trips.
Our first non-shopping trip was to Calgary Zoo which is an excellent set up on an island in the city, click here for the full zoo page
We headed out to Elbow Falls for a picnic one sunny afternoon and had a wonderful time, click here for full page and pics
When the weatherman predicted sunshine in the Rockies we loaded up and headed out to Banff to ride the Gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain for an incredible day, click here for pics
