Auntie’s Visit to Alberta
My sister Ashley made a short, fast trip to Alberta to visit Langdon. We had such an awesome time + ate a lot of tasty food along the way!
Ashley could not stand to be away from her beloved nephew for so long. She be crayzay for Langdon! Crazy enough to where there was no lodging anywhere close to our teeeeeensy country town, so she booked a hotel room + rental car 45 minutes away!
She could not believe how hefty + large Langdon has grown!!! The last time she held him he was not but a wee thing – 2 weeks old! Their first picture together of their reunion. Langdon looks waaaaaay to mischievous for my liking. That face makes me nervous.
Langdon is a major spazzoid lately + all he wants to do is stand, stand, stand! Even my sister, who is a physical therapist + works with children all day long can barely keep a grip on this squiggly, slick character!
We convinced Ashley to spend the weekend in Canmore because our amazing generous friends were letting us stay at their house. It’s so lovely + it’s better than having her stare at us all day long in our mini Black Diamond home! Once we arrived, Jeff wordlessly stepped outside + started spraying. Spraying what? Garlic! It was making me all out hungry! Apparently garlic deters mosquitoes which Alberta has an ample supply of. What a nut my husband is.
That night we all went out for dinner at our favorite Alberta sushi establishment – Chef’s Studio Japan. I was so bone tired. This baby is sucking the life force out of me. I wanted to prop my eyelids open with chopsticks.
The next day Langdon + I met Ashley at her hotel in Southern Calgary. Here’s Langdon + Ashley having an executive meeting. “How is the Dow Jones doing? Is it up or down?” asks Langdon. “Sell!!! Sell!!!” he exclaims!
I took Ashley to see Calgary’s Peace Bridge. An amazing addition to Calgary’s city landscape, but the price tag of $17.995 million did not make it’s citizens very happy. I love this modern, pedestrian bridge!!!! I think it’s so striking!
Burgers….yuuuuuum. Ashley was little by little looking a little worse for the wear spending a lot of time with Langdon. This baby will do that to you. He’s a doozy. Langdon’s thinking his mom better hurry up + take the darn photo for her boring ol’ blog.
When I said goodbye to my sister I was so overwhelmed with sadness! Now that I have a baby, the distance between me + my family has grown that much deeper!!! Oh how I miss them + my friends in Los Angeles so much!!! Thank you for the visit, big sis!!!! I’m so glad that you made it out to visit with us! Love you always!!!!
