One of them was a couple of RVers who drove here all the way from Mexico!
Our friends Chris and Juan are on their big North American tour, and stopping in to see friends across Canada. They live just outside Monterrey, and they are big proponents of RV'ing in Mexico. We've met them several times on our travels throughout the country, and now we get to host them on our turf!
Kind of strange to see Mexican licence plates way up here. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen Mexican plates in Canada. They said they've been getting lots of comments from people who notice their plates.

Chris, Kevin, Juan, and our daughter Lindsey.
They had a long drive from Lethbridge, Alberta yesterday arriving here at about 4:30pm. Ruth and Lindsey had made hamburgers and salads and I grilled up the burgers and we had a feast. Lots of great conversation, and we're so glad they arrived at the same time that Lindsey is here so they could meet each other.
They're headed all the way to Nova Scotia, so it's likely that Lindsey will see them again in early July when they arrive out there. It's a long way to travel so they can't linger here too long, but they'll stay for at least the weekend. Hopefully we can get out for a hike in the hills around here before they leave!
Here's our header photo from today. It was a tough choice to find our best picture from February of 2008 when we had driven from Baja California Sur in Mexico, across on the ferry to Mazatlan, and then across Mexico and up to Texas. We had taken a lot of photos, but here's our top choice from the month...
