Let's Go Fly a Kite!!

The weather is warming up more and more each day and it is nice in the afternoon even without a jacket.  Sue and I headed out to Bentley in the afternoon to pick up Donovan from school.  While there we visited the "The Kite Guys".   This is a neat store with all things kites.  They have been in the kite business for about 30 years and said that they really love it.  They are kite fanatics themselves so that makes what they do even more interesting.

Out and About

We didn't accomplish much today, but we didn't intend to either.   We are here to spend time with family and that is what we are doing.  Gord and Sheri had to run a bunch of errands today so we climbed in with them for the ride.  We went to a butcher shop in Bentley and then on to Walmart in Sylvan Lake.  Its funny that I always check to see if they are RV friendly. lol

Horsing Around

We are starting to get involved in some of the things the kids do here.  With four kids around they are busy most of the time.  We headed out to Bentley to meet the kids for lunch at the Monkey Top Saloon restaurant.  What a neat little place and they do the Dick Damron theme.  Dick is a singer of some notoriety and lives in Bentley in the summer and winters in Mazatlan.  You can check him out yourself here.

Christmas in April

Sheri had a doctors appointment in Wetaskiwin today.  Wetaskiwin is about 45 minutes north of Lacombe and the weather forcast for today was terrible, so like a good father would do, I offered to drive her there.   The trip there was great and she got in and out on time.  By the time we got to Walmart to do some shopping it was starting to storm.  One of the things we really feel when we get back to Canada is the price of meat.  Sue and I stocked our freezer with 8 steaks about 2 weeks ago in the USA for about 30 bucks.  Check the price of these 2  Rib eye steaks.  It is almost cheaper to eat at the Keg!!!

Back in Canada

This will be the final leg of our US adventure for this year.  We will be crossing the border into Alberta today for a nice long visit with our daughter Sheri and her SO Gord and all the kids.  Donovan, Dani, Rio, and Joey.  It will be a long day today as it is over 600 kilometers to drive today.
