I know it was a few weeks ago, but here are a couple pictures from our half-marathon.

Our trip, in chronological order:
After driving through Montana, I decided I want to live there, and here are my reasons why:
Crossing the border
Finally, we got to Calgary
The Calgary Olympic Park. I had a cousin who ski jumped off this to see how he measured up to the Olympians...he broke his leg on it.
The day before we left, we took a trip into Banff National Park
There's nothing like the Canadian Rockies!
We saw some sweet wildlife!
Like this family of rams; a daddy and 2 babies!
And this elk that was just on his way across the street, he almost walked into our car!
In this picture he looks far away, but that's just because I was so scared when I was taking the pictures of him right outside my window that they came out all shaky!
We also went to beautiful Lake Louise
It was beautiful from the shore, but we had to hike a few "kilometers" to get this view
Of course, the trip wouldn't be complete without stopping at a chocolate shop to get some fudge!
We had such a wonderful time with my 2 favorite people!!
Although Canada was very nice, we came back home with an increased pride for our homeland!
