Last weekend Olive and I headed down to Calgary for her first stampede. Friends of my mom got us the most amazing seats in a fabulous shady spot along the parade route – shade is like gold during a parade, I swear.
Undoubtedly one of the best things about parenthood is how excited I get to see her experience the world – I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so hard, or waved at so many floats, hoping she’d do the same. She had an amazing time with all of her crazy aunts, and it was a nice throwback to my Calgary roots.
(P.S. William Shatner was apparently the parade marshal this year for some reason, which was so strange to me!)
