Calgary Stampede…

Yesterday was day 2 of the Calgary Stampede, I believe we have gone the last 4 years in a row…at least, Westjet is a corporate sponsor so we take advantage of their breakfast, bull & bronco riding & other fun stuff, it’s an early morning, we were out of the house before 7AM so we can make it thru the Stampede gates for free (need to be there before 8AM), than we do our thing at the breakfast, than we visited the agriculture area, than we head to Buckaroo’s, than we have lunch, than we take the kid’s to use their ride coupons, we also were able to catch some Native dance & than we were on our way by 3 or 3:30PM just in time to miss the thunderstorms.

Here are some of my fav pics of the day:

Stampede would not be stampede without buying yummy, cinnamon sugar mini donuts, these are the only food items we buy at stampede, we always bring our own lunch & snacks.

The Native dance show was great, beautiful dress, great dancing & great drums.

After Stampede we headed to my BIL’s 40th surprise birthday, we didn’t get home till around 9PM last night, the kid’s were bagged, heck I was bagged too…

Today it’s a day of hanging out & PACKING…only 11 more days till possession day & I haven’t packed one single box.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
