Zoo Trip - March 2008

Brad and I went to the Zoo on Wednesday and had such a great time. We really only went to two areas, the stingrays and the Canadian Wilds.

The Rays are so cool! They're new, they've only been there for a month and they're incredible to watch. You can pet them sometimes but they're still new so it's pretty limited, we couldn't pet them when we were there but we want to go back sometime. The way they glide through the water is really neat.

I don't think I've ever been to the Canadian Wilds before, I really enjoyed it! I thought I might be bored since most of the animals are pretty common but nothing about it was boring. I loved the Caribou and the seals were so cute!

Here are a few photos we took, enjoy!

Still Great

I don't normally resort to a weekend recap but it seemed appropriate tonight.

  1. We start with a really painful massage...
  2. And move right on to the terrible haircut. There were all these crazy layers on one side but not the other, I finally took some scissors to it and it's better. Not fixed, as nothing will help the back but better.
  3. We end Thursday with some great Tempura and Dynamite rolls with friends.
  4. Friday starts out better, homemade pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream.
  5. We go to buy Brad a softball glove and find one for $80, the story turns great though because we went to Walmart right after and found the exact same glove for $45! The expensive one was returned.
  6. Friends came for dinner (really great hamburgers) and lots of Wii (always a good time).
  7. Saturday starts with the discovery that I'm strangely covered in really itchy hives (they've stuck around all day). I can think of no allergies and I haven't switched detergents... thank you Benedryl for keeping the itching at bay.
  8. We played catch in the park with the aforementioned new softball glove
  9. and had a super yummy lunch of chicken salad and croissants.
  10. A trip to Banff for dinner to the Maple Leaf Grille finished off tonight. The risotto was awesome! The chocolate souffle disappointing. Elk is much better than I expected, it was delicious.
  11. Tomorrow will include dinner with Brad's extended family at the Grandparents,
  12. and on Monday we'll eat dinner and chocolate cake with peanut butter icing at the Wiebe's to celebrate a birthday.

There were some definite low points... the haircut, massage and hives stand out but this has been the greatest long weekend. We've gone to bed early and slept in late every morning. I'm dreading work on Monday but refuse to let it spoil the rest of my weekend.

I hope yours was just as great.

Worst Hair Cut Ever

So I have this really bad haircut... but it's late and I'm sleepy so that's all you'll hear about it tonight, I'll add to this post later but will leave you with some pictures... believe me, it's even worse than the pictures make it look.

Green and Pinchless

I actually had someone ask me if they could pinch me because I wasn't wearing green.

Flashback to junior high. Remember the days you forgot, when you had to try to come up with something to avoid the terrible pinching? I would inevitably come up with some tiny speck of green to save me the pain.

Happy St. Patrick's Day
I wish you a pinchless afternoon.

I'm disappointed...

I present you with this wonderful holiday, a holiday that's a joy to celebrate and I get such a tepid response. But it's Middle Name Pride Day... the third annual Middle Name Pride Day! Does that mean nothing to you? You've been invited to become part of my tradition, I want to share it with you. You mock me with you're lack of a response...

There's still time, it's not too late... you still have almost a week.
Let's come together and spread the joy and love of the season :)
