Saturday evening was the anniversary party for Mike and Enola. They held it at a community center, in Rocky Lane. 4-6 pm was snacks and gathering. 6 pm was dinner, followed by music with a band and dancing. One of the strange things there is that the sun doesn't set until about 12:30 am. It can be very late in the evening and not seem like it. We drove back to the house at that time. On Sunday, most of us went back to the community center to "clean up". We hung around there on Monday, but Mike and Enola still had friends there from Colorado and an RV to return, so we didn't spend much time with them that day. We took us, the Simms, and Mike, Enola, EvaMay, and two friends to Boston Pizza for dinner on Monday evening. Enola kept commenting how they "never go to town just for dinner". Here are assorted pics from the anniversary party.

We arrived at Mike and Enola's mid evening. They already had several guests there and a yard full of campers. They had rented two RV's and borrowed a camper, so that people had a place to stay. They had also cooked a meal for everybody, that evening. Here are a few pics around their house.
The next few posts will be from our trip to Canada and Utah.Canada with the Simms and EvaMay for Alsterlunds anniversary party. Utah for the arrival of Ashton. (Also with the Simms and the Petes). On Tuesday, June 21, we had a early morning flight to Houston and then on to Calgary. Since we had to leave home in the middle of the night...I never went to bed. We packed up late and then I spent a couple of hours cleaning the house. We arrived in Calgary about noon. Went to get the RV- then back to the airport to pick up EvaMay. The Simms met us in Canmore that evening. Dinner at Boston Pizza, then EvaMay, Annie, Alex, and Savie slept in Mike and Enolas house there. The Simms boys slept in the RV with us. Ron and I didn't have much blanket and it was cold that night. We spent Wednesday and Thursday in the national parks. Stayed at a campground each night. Spent Friday, driving the rest of the way to Mike and Enola's "other" house. The RV adventure had lots of annoying little issues :) Stops included Lake Louise, Lake Moraine, and McDonalds. (The MacDonalds stop was for Weston) (I may not have these pics exactly in order of events, but you'll get the idea. I also grabbed some pics from Annie)
