They Have Arrived!

Ruth did the three hour drive each way to Saskatoon airport yesterday to pick up our daughter Lindsey and grandkids Cameron and Sadie. Apparently she parked and walked to the terminal and as she entered the terminal, there they were! Perfect timing.

Parking at Saskatoon airport is only $2.00 an hour. Pretty cheap for an airport!

They went and did a little running around in Saskatoon, and then headed for the park.

Cameron and Ruth driving back to Cabri Regional Park.

This is Saskatchewan.

They arrived at the park just after 4:30pm. Long day for everyone, but they all made it safe and sound. Lindsey says the kids were really good on the airplanes (they had to connect in Toronto), but it was still a long journey.

While they were gone, I spent most of the day playing with the hedge trimmer. First time I've ever done that. There's a bit of a knack to it, and I think I've got it down. I'll have to take a pic of the finished product later today!

Kevin, trimming the hedge.

After the kids went to sleep, we took Lindsey for a walk around the park. Only took one picture though. There was a swallow sitting on the "Drinking Water" sign...

Swallows are actually quite pretty!

This morning, Cameron was up just before 6:00am. It didn't take him long to have some breakfast and want outside...after all, there's a playground that needs using!

Cameron at the playground before 7:00am!

Fun on the slide.

Hey, not one picture of Lindsey...we'll have to change that today!

We're doing a "best of" daily header photo from our travels. Here's today's choice of our best photo from November of 2007...

Waterton Lake National Park, our favorite Canadian national park!

    1. It was a long day for Lindsey and the children and for me driving for over 6 hours but it was all worth in to have the next two weeks together.

  3. Well, my "smile" comment is going to look like I'm a copy cat, but I don't care. The smiles on Grandma are the broadest I think I've seen in a while.
