Day 12:  A “Champion” of a Day

I am overflowing with joy and have way too many things to report in one post… this is the kind of day where less words, and more pictures is the best way to capture the excitement.

First and foremost…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR AMAZING MOM!! You are the original explorer and gave us all the courage and curiosity to seize every opportunity to experience as many adventures as we can in our lifetimes!! We love you and appreciate the legacy you are passing on to your entire family!

Greg and I are overjoyed that Joan and Kent arrived last night and are here with us for a few days to experience things that just words cannot do justice.  Our day started off with a wonderful breakfast at Holy Grill in Calgary:)

And now for the BIG news of the day…Greg Sizemore is the new WORLD CHAMPION in the 60’s Doubles Division of Handball!! Wow!! We are so happy happy happy for him.  He played an absolutely amazing match with his partner Merv.  Congratulations Champ!!  It was a day to remember for a long time!!

After the match, we drove from Calgary to Banff, through SNOWY weather, to Lake Louise where we checked into the Fairmount Chateau Lake Louise.  The sites were stunning!

We just finished an amazing dinner and now,  we are getting ready to end this glorious day! Tomorrow, we wake up early for a hike around Lake Louise, before we continue on to Jasper and Whistler….Congratulations Greg! This was certainly a day to remember for a long, long time!
