We arrived in Calgary on Friday the 29th and spent a pleasant evening with Chris’ fam. His mom’s parents live on a 13th floor condo in downtown Calgary. They’ve got the view of the city on one side, and Prince’s Island Park on the other. It’s beautiful. For dinner, the lot of us walked a few blocks south to Redwater Grille. Chris and I shared a prosciutto and date salad and a scallop and shrimp entre. I was quite surprised he was willing to share with me; I think the Paleo Diet is helping in more way than one!
After a Saturday morning brunch at 1886 Buffalo Café (put this on your list if you’re ever in Calgary, but get there early!) we picked up our rental car and drove out to the countryside. Chris’ other grandparents live in a charming country house, way out in the middle of nowhere.
Meeting his other set of grandparents was such a joy for me. They were so happy in their age and still so in love. Plus they have such a perfect home.
We stayed at their house for one night and left Sunday morning to drive into to the mountains.
