Canada trip






Well I made it back from my trip to canada! It was pretty cold up there, but I guess it was a lot warmer than it usually is. We went to Banff and enjoyed a few days of exploring around the city. We did a little shopping around and checked out a lot of the restaurants. We were supposed to go snowboarding, but I got sick on the day we were going to go (probably caught it from the hot springs, or maybe food poisioning?). That stunk because I paid so much money to get my snowboard. But anyways, it was only a 24 hour bug so we were able to take a guided ice walk through Johnston canyon instead. We saw a lot of frozen waterfalls and some ice climbers, it was pretty cool because the waterfalls weren't completely frozen so you could see the water falling behind the ice. We also saw Lake Louise where you can ice skate around ice sculptures. This year they made one big ice castle so that was pretty neat. They had a lot of nice hotels to look through too. We went to Edmonton where we spent a couple of days with Jared's family and checked out the West Edmonton Mall, the world's largest mall. It had an amusement and water park inside of it, many stores, hockey rink, a sea lion show place, bumper boats and much more. We had to go back twice and I don't think we even saw everything. When we were flying back to the states Jared got denied at customs, probably just because the customs guy was having a bad day. They just do that sometimes. So he didn't get to fly back until wed and only because he was going to be coming on a student visa rather than his work visa from before. But we're back and I had a lot of fun!
