We're very happy to have so much extra space in our rented home! We were able to set up a guest bedroom in the basement, without too much of a problem. Rachel's friend, Michelle, along with her new beau, came up for a visit just after the U.S. 4th of July weekend. They stayed with us two nights and we had a great time. (They were planning on attending the Calgary stampede, so they took a 3-hour detour and swung up to see us).
Having visitors so soon after we moved was nice. It gave us impetus to get things sorted out quickly AND it meant that we could put 'unpacking' on the shelf, for a couple of days, while they were here. We barbequed a great steak dinner, drank some wine, played games, talked a lot and took them to nearby Rundle Park, for a picnic lunch. The weather was great and everyone had a grand time. Especially Alex, who already likes Michelle a lot and found a new playmate - Bruce!
Alex was living 'high on the hog' because she got all sorts of extra attention! They took her along while they ran errands, giving mom and dad the opportunity to go for another bike ride. (This time, we following the North Saskatchewan River Parkway in the other direction. Can you believe that we saw a red fox and a deer on our ride?
They left just this morning and we were sorry to see them go. We hope you come back soon!
