2002 Summer Vacation

July 29 - August 17, 2002

We began our vacation with a week at Grandma and Grandpa's house in Anglemont. While there, Lego construction was a popular pastime.

The Lego army was on guard most of the week.

We also spent a lot of time relaxing.

We drove to Albas for a hike beside the falls.

There is still disagreement as to how many falls there are at Albas. It depends on your definition of what constitutes a waterfall.

Our first stop on the next phase of our vacation was at Golden. It was raining when we arrived, but the sun briefly appeared early the next morning.

The next day we travelled to Crimson Lake near Rocky Mountain House. We roasted marshmallows and popcorn over the campfire at night and went swimming and wading in the lake the next morning.

We stayed 3 nights in Devon while we went to West Edmonton Mall. We spent one day at the water park and one day at GalaxyLand.

It was just a short drive to Sylvan Lake where we camped 3 nights with the other "Birds" at the Beaver Lodge golf tournament.

On our way home we spent a night visiting Kristiana and Joe in Calgary. After sleeping in such luxury, we didn't want to go back to camping. So, we stayed a night in the Revelstoke Lodge and then one night in Kamloops before arriving home.
