Crazy times in Canada

                                                       ice fishing for the first time
Irene and I are ready to go quading . . .

Kicking horse resort has their own bear . . . he's in the house
behind us.  You can see him from the gondola
Thats my handsome man!!!

Ok, so our family just got back from a two week vacation in Canada.  I do have to admit that it was a one week of work and the next week of vacation for us Palmer's.  Justin flew up by himself to take his Canadian dental boards.  He got to stay with my grandma who currently lives in Edmonton.  I had a concert that weekend so flew with Evan as soon as that was over.  
I spent the month before looking online for houses and setting up appointments with a realtor.  That was our first task at hand in the great white north (although truthfully said it was the great brown north while we were there).  We looked at about 8 different homes and there was a definite winner.  Long story short . . . we bought it!!!  
The second week we were there our friends from Florida came out for our "friend" vacation.  It was a blast to say the very least.  We had so much fun skiing at kicking horse ski resort, ice-fishing, horse back riding, and quading at Justin's mom's ranch, and exploring Calgary.  Thank you Da Costa's and Lowry's for coming with us to Canada and for being such amazing friends.  We LOVE you so much!!!
