I'm back from Calgary! And what an interesting trip it was. So first, on the drive up, we almost ran out of gas, literally running off of gas fumes, and barely made it to this little town of no where. THEN we blew a tire. We stopped at this little shop to get it fixed but they didn't have the right size of tire so we just got the spare put on. That leads to my first first, my first time eating lasagna on a shop bench. We finally made it to Calgary and the next day we went to the stampede. It was so totally cool, besides getting rained out. The cowboys and cowgirls made it an awesome show, as well as a really good show put on by the animals.One horse broke it's back and had to be put down but it was still really good, other then sitting there and biting my nails and willing the cowboys to just stay on for eight seconds and feeling really bad when they didn't. My second first was watching the Calgary Stampede. The third first was eating supper in a bar that night. I had this really yummy southern fried chicken. The next day I went to Cairo's. I earned a new nickname, Dish (by her little brother Gage) and got barfed on 3 times by her baby brother, Ephraim. (Did I spell that right, Cai? I think I did.) On our way home this morning we got a little lost and spent an hour touring Calgary. But we made it home alright and it was a good trip.
