Calgary!

We’ve been here for over a month, so it’s about time to post something. Here are a few highlights from our new home town:

The view from our neighborhood (our house is the red one at the bottom). Calgary has great sunsets and great clouds.

A trail through the Northwest. The new Calgary temple is up the hill in the distance.

Fall colours. We went for a Sunday afternoon walk along the elbow river here.

Devonian Gardens with family on Thanksgiving Day. This is a place Calgarians head to when winter gets too cold. It’s above an overpriced mall downtown, but the gardens are actually pretty nice.

Sisters-in-law at Prince’s Island Park downtown on Thanksgiving Day. It’s nice being a little closer to family now. Boston was a bit harder for folks to visit. You missed out, though!

A Calgary-themed swing set with my dad and my sister on Thanksgiving.

Center Street Bridge downtown at the end of a bike date to Chinatown and the old Financial District. Buffalo are everywhere! At least in art. I haven’t seen a live one here yet, but did see a herd of antelope on the way back from Saskatchewan today. That trip is for another post, though.

    I enjoyed seeing the pictures. Sorry we weren’t home when you called last night. We were visiting grandma and grandpa and aunt ruth who is visiting for a week. By the time we got home it would have been too late to call. Talk to you soon. Love Mom
