Happy New Year

On New Year's Eve we watched Airdrie's firework display from Dan's bedroom, it gave us a perfectly good view without having to put all the coats, hats and gloves on. Thoughtfully they put them on at 6.30pm so all the kids can enjoy them, too.

After that we went to a house party staged by English friends of ours in Airdrie, Steve & Sarah, with their triplets.  Their daughter skates with Lara so we are getting to know them quite well, and we had a great time, only getting home after 3.30am. 

No-one got up until 12.30pm, and even then it was Olga and I who got up first, though Lara claims she was awake at 11am, but we saw no evidence of it.

I had a nice walk back to Steve's house with the dogs to collect the truck before we headed back off to the trailer for another weekend of skiing.

Calgary ZooLights

We went to the zoo on Wednesday evening to see the Calgary ZooLights - like Blackpool Illuminations at -10C. There were a surprising number of adults there without children - whilst the lights are spectacular, most of the other attractions are aimed at kids, and ours loved it. We did come home with a giant, flashing, insulated cup though.

Dan cruises down the green runs

Dan has made some good progress this weekend on the green runs at Nakiska. Off to simple blues next weekend, we reckon.
