It’s been an adventurous couple of weeks since I was last here to share with you.
We celebrated our DGD-LV’s first birthday
Then with LV’s other grandparents we headed to southern Alberta to the campground at Great Canadian Barn Dance for a week. We spent the week exploring southern Alberta – Fort Macleod, to relearn some RCMP history:
the Remington Carriage Museum at Cardston, to be reminded of a simpler time of life:
Waterton Lakes National Park (which is actually a cross-border park with Glacier National Park in Montana), where we took a lake cruise:
wandered along Red Rock Canyon:
admired the waterfalls:
This is an amazing family, 3 generations of entertainers, who have been doing shows and dances in their barn for 29 years.
And then we danced:
The morning after the dance, we scurried home, to get the truck and trailer unloaded and head out again to move my parents.
We’ve brought them to an apartment just 20 minutes away from us – no more fretting over the winter months that they may need help and we can’t get to them 3+ hours away over the mountain passes.
We had help loading the rental trailer from a brother-in-law, then help unloading the trailer from a brother and sister-in-law. And my sister had been able to be there a couple of days ahead to help with the major packing. All in all it was a very easy move. They’re pretty well settled in now, and I’m doing my best not to be fussing over them – must remember that they need their independence.
So now, after a couple of days to recuperate, we’re back to a more normal life.
Happy, happy times! Blessings, Peg
