BC: David had to beat my High Score by getting 4 Yahtzees! | On Tuesday we packed up all our stuff and flew home.

The flight attendant finally asked us if we wanted ear plugs! | He got 3 regular Yahtzees and 1 Rainbow Yahtzee.
FC: Canada August 13-23
1: On August 13th, David and I left our house with Gary, Lynn Marie, Ben, Laura, and Bethany, all in one car headed to Canada. We left at 8:01 P.M. and drove through out the night. I was so excited that I was not able to sleep all night. | I ended up driving some of the way so that Gary could have some time to sleep. While I was driving Gary all the sudden sat up and yelled "Watch Out!" It scared me half to death! The funny thing was there was nothing there! Gary thought he saw some cattle in the road when all it was, was some big trees that curved and were right by the road. After that Gary decided he would drive again! We reached Cardston at 7:59 A.M. We stopped at David's Grandparents house for breakfast and to go to Church. When I was getting ready for chuch I pulled out my dress from my suit case. I gave it a good shake to get out the wrinkles and a HUGE spider came crawling out! It was so scary! I had David come kill it and then we | were off to church from 9:00-10:10. After church we were back on the road at 10:40. We finally reached David's house at 1:45 P.M. David and I went and unpacked and then layed down for a nap. Ben, Jana, Caden, and Maya came over that night for dinner. The next day we were still so tired from the long drive that we just relaxed all day at the house. That night we roasted S'mores outside, then David and I went and played Yahtzee. I was so excited when I got my highest score ever 711! I got 2 regular Yahtzee's and 1 Rainbow Yahtzee (which is a new way we play. It has colored dice and a when all the dice are the same color and same number you get a rainbow yahtzee worth 200 points!) It was so fun!
3: Tuesday Morning we went to the Calgary Zoo! While we were there Bethany kept pointing at me and saying my name! By the end of the week she said David's name as well and even | made a sign meaning Cortny. After the Zoo that night David and I went and hot tubbed in | the backyard. | The Baby Gorilla
4: Sikome Beach | Maya was so funny and hates being dirty so she was a little scared to step on the sand
7: On Wednesday we spent all afternoon at the beach. After we got home and had dinner we decieded to go to the gym. When we went outside the clouds looked like a | huge heart. So I ran back inside to grab my camera, when I came back outside it had moved but you can still see a little of the heart. After the gym we were going to bed and David's dog Roxie jumped on our bed, and whenever I would come close to the bed he would growl at me. Finally after asking a few times David moved the dog so I could lay down as well!
8: We were the fastest run of the day at 81.4 km/h
9: On Thursday morning we went to C.O.P. to go Bobsledding and to go on the Zipline. It was so much fun! The track was the original track from the movie "Cool Runnings," and also the track the Winter | Olympics were held on in 1988. | North America's fastest zipline, reaching speeds up to 140 km/h
10: Feeding the Ducks at Bowness Park
12: Friday morning we went to Kati Ann's work. It is a big farm that is also a petting zoo. We got to play with all the animals and even went on a wagon ride!
16: Troll Falls in Kananaskis Country
18: Barrier Dam
19: Friday afternoon David's best friend Chris took us on a hike. After the hike we were driving home and we stopped to see this pretty lake. It was so fun and so beautiful! After we got home we wanted to have a date night because it was Friday, so we rented "Cool Runnings," made popcorn and David's parents watched it with us.
21: Saturday August 20th
22: Happy 4th Birthday Caden
23: We gave Caden a Remote Control Helicopter | Sunday August 21st
24: On Monday afternoon everyone came out boating! The day started out cloudy and a little cold. After a few hours it started to get a little warmer, which made getting in | the tube more enjoyable! We all got hungry around 5 so we started heading home. When | we got home I went to get out of my wet clothes and I was Bright Red! I was so burned! It made the next day on the plane a little more miserable then normal.
26: While David and I were boating together I got a little scared because David likes to go super fast and crazy! So I told him to tell Gary to slow down and so he decided to show me the boating signs. So he started with the "slow down" sign, then he went to the "speed up" sign, then he did the "stop" sign and right when he did that we hit a bump and David was gone. He flew off the tube! It was so funny!
