Sharon and I had a great flight to Alberta yesterday and arrived safely at our hotel in Olds, AB around 7pm. After a busy weekend and quick turn around to pack for our trip plus the 2 hour time difference, we were both bushed! There's a Boston Pizza attached to our hotel so we grabbed a bite to eat there, drove around to find out where she was examining and then we called it a day.
On the flight they showed a great Disney movie called, 'Eight Below.' It's a wonderful family movie that I can't wait to watch with my niece. (If you're watching it with young children, be prepared for a scary moment when they show the killer whale and a few other tense moments for younger children.) The movie is about a young guide in Antarctica who is forced to leave his best friends behind, his 8 sled dogs, when he has to leave. If you're looking for a good family movie (but not for young children) then this is a great choice!
Today we were up bright and early because our internal clocks were a couple of hours ahead. A quick trip to the gym, breakfast in our room and then I took Sharon to work. Spent the morning checking email, picking up some groceries and trying to figure out how to work Dad's GPS system. Think I almost have it figured out.
After picking up lunch I brought it back to the room and enjoyed it there.I was having my devotional time when I peaked out the window to see a horse right across the parking lot! What fun to look out and see him! I went down and took a few pictures. He came closer but once he realized I didn't have any food off he galloped. Wow! Such beauty!
I think I may check out a local scrapbooking store tomorrow and see what they have. Olds is a very small town but it's still fun to see what it has to offer. Sharon and I have such a great time together and I am so thankful for the opportunity to travel with her again. Who knows, with the delays in referrals we may fit in another session of examining next June? Wonder where they'll send her next year? So far we've gone to BC twice, Alberta twice and Saskatchewan once. Maybe a trip to the east coast is in order for next year? That would be wonderful! We'll know more as time moves forward and we get a better indication of how long referrals are taking.
For now, we're going to enjoy this time in Alberta.
PS: Dawn, Can you see me waving??? So close and yet so far!
