Rachael's Tent

Grandma made me a tent! I saw one with her on Sunday and it was lots of money so Grandma said she could make me one instead! Thanks Grandma, I love it!

P.S. - I'm feeling much better

Three Hills Holiday

Our vacation to Three Bumps, AB (actually Three Hills, but coming from BC the hills are more like bumps) didn't go exactly like we planned. We got there on Saturday around supper time and the girls had fun roasting wieners for supper. The next day was Canada Day and Rachael and Kaitlyn wanted to find something fun to do so we went to Drumheller. Drumheller is paradise for dinosaur lovers like Rachael. There were dinosaurs all over town, including the Worlds Tallest Dinosaur! We got to climb the 105 steps and see the view from his mouth. Lots of fun.
The next day we went to see our dirt for the first and last time. Huh? Yes, last September we bought some Three Hills dirt, thinking we might be crazy enough to possibly move there and build a house. Fortunately we came to our senses and decided not to. But we still had to get a picture of us on our prairie dirt while it was still ours. We sold it the next day.

We went swimming on Tuesday, and that night Rachael got sick. She was a bit feverish when I put her to bed, but I was hoping she was just warm because of the heat. No such luck. Of course, being on holidays, we had no medicine with us, so finally at two in the morning Darcy went to Mac's to find some. Wednesday evening I took her to the ER and they said she had strep throat, even though her throat wasn't sore. They sent us home with some antibiotics and Tylenol. But, Thursday night we were back, this time overnight. And the next day. And the next night. We didn't get out of there until Saturday morning. Not what we had planned for our holidays.

At least she was better for Saturday, the day of Jeremy and Christine's wedding. They had asked me to make a "fake cake" out of cardboard with a crazy wedding-topper. Christine wanted it all lopsided and crazy. It was fun to make, and turned out not too bad, if I do say so myself!

We left Three Hills on Sunday, but we had promised the girls we'd go see the Dinosaur Museum before we left. We had originally planned on going on Thursday, but someone just wasn't up for it then. So we walked around the museum for an hour and then headed to the airport to catch our flight.

Not the vacation quite the way we planned, but Rachael's on the mend so it's all good.
