Tim Hortons (and thought of Kimber) for some Timbits and coffee (insert obligatory Canada joke here).
Crepe de Licious for some non-fried pre-Stampede lunch. My chicken cesar crepe was another delicious meal. We walked a few blocks further and caught the C Train to the Stampede. The first thing we did was take the chair lift ride across the midway to check out the park.
(even in my poncho) but then the sun came back out and we dried off rather quickly.
The next day we headed out to Chris's Aunt and Uncle's house for a family breakfast, where I was appalled to learn that Calgary doesn't have Target. His poor cousins.
After we'd seen enough cow wrestling and bull riding to satisy us for a very long time, we went back to the Midway so Chris could spend the rest of his tickets on games and ride.
We spent a few more hours exploring the Stampede Grounds, then caught the C Train back downtown for a relaxing dinner at home with the family.
Prince's Island Park and Eu Claire Market.
All Dressed Potato Chips and we enjoyed some sunshine and people watching. Time to go back to Austin!
