So we had been in Fort Collins for about 5 days when we decided we would help MaryEllen drive up to Canada to see her sisters 50th wedding anniversary. She could not fly up there because she does not have a passport yet and you have to have one to fly out of the country. So the only way she would get up there is to drive, since you don't have to have a passport for that, you only need a drivers license and a birth certificate. And Don could not get that much time off of work to help her drive. So off we went. It takes 2 days to drive there so we drove up to billings, MT first and stayed the night and then drove the rest of the way to Calgary the next day. We were able to go to the party and enjoyed seeing all the family that I have never met due to them not being members of the church and so they don't have as much to do with the family.
Then we went to Fernie, BC for the adult family reunion. You are not supposed to bring any kids with you, but we had no choice in the matter so we enjoyed the kids too. We spent 2 1/2 days there and then drove home. So all in all a fast trip, 4 days driving and 4 days "playing and visiting."
So here are the fruits of our trip.
This is Bryan and the group that went on a hike.
Bryan and Kambria...can you see her face?
