Calgary Day 2

It’s now Sunday morning and we only have one more day left here in Calgary. But by the time this gets posted we’ll be back in Halifax. It’s been a great trip but I’m not looking forward to the over night flight home tonight.

It’s 7:30 and I’m the only one up in the house. Since my step-brother and his wife have 5 kids plus Matt and I there are 9 people in this house right now so I’m really enjoying a few mins of quiet time to myself.

After falling asleep yesterday so early I was a little worried about messing up our internal clocks and waking up at 5 but we ended up sleeping until 7:30 so we got 11 hours of sleep and I felt so much better.

After we got up yesterday we decided to skip the big unhealthy breakfast and hit up the small coffee shop across the street from our hotel for coffee and a muffin. When we got there it wasn’t open yet and we couldn’t find another place close so we just headed back to the hotel.

We ended up with the buffet again for breakfast. This time I chose to have a traditional pancake breakfast: 2 pancakes, sausages and bacon…

With a side of fruit…

I’m not upset. We’re on vacation so sometimes a little grease is ok.

After heading back up to the room we showered and packed everything up so we could check out and meet my step-brother. We headed back to his place to drop out stuff off and we spend the morning there handing out with his family.

On the menu for lunch was hotdogs. Since I don’t eat hot dogs I made myself a bagel sandwich with what they had in their fridge. Bagel, roasted chicken, mozza and romaine…

We also had a side of veggies to go along with lunch…

Boy was my body ever craving veggies. It was great to get some greens back into my diet.

After lunch we drove around Calgary to see some places while doing so we stopped so I could take some pictures of the mountains.

I love being able to see the mountains off in the distance. So different from Halifax.

Late in the afternoon we headed to the park with the kids and played football, freebie, soccer and soccer baseball for about and hour. It was actually a great workout.

Dinner was hamburgers and corn on the cob. After dinner was relaxed with the family and headed to bed around  10:30.

Here are just a few of the pictures I took yesterday.
