He Said:Today (Friday July 7) we left at noon and drove all the way there. That's about it. I MacGyvered a Netflix streaming tablet which worked great for most of the trip, but the kids are also good with keeping themselves entertained. We'd had guests from Calgary over the past couple of days, who left at the same time.

On the road! I swear there are two things I always see on the trip. As per my usual detailed specificity - the 'new' bridge that curves and spans that ravine, and that town where you go through the section of rock walls, come around the corner and it's there below, spread out, with all the country music billboards. I saw neither. Maybe it's because we didn't go through Jasper.

She Said:Yes, I thought it was a good idea to have our Calgary friends visit for the 3 days leading up to our vacation. Well, it actually turned out pretty good. We made "good time" to Kelowna. We thought we might even arrive near the same time Shelley was landing at the airport, but we ended up an hour ahead of her. Phil and Daisy welcomed us warmly around 10:30 and we all went to bed.
