Canada - picture overload

As promised, here is a post on our trip to Canada. It's mostly going to be pictures.

We went to Canada for Grandma Stringam's 90th birthday and stayed for a week. It was a great trip! We started the week off by going to the Raymond Parade and the Raymond Stampede to celebrate Canada day. It's kind of the tradition for family while visiting Canada on July 1st.

The next day we celebrated Grandma's birthday with a HUGE party at the church. It was announced in the local newspaper, so tons of people came by to wish her well. 

After the party,  a few of us went bowling, which was super fun. The next day, Ryan and I got to sneak away to Banff while Arlene babysat Brady for a few days. This was my first time away from Brady overnight. It was so nice to get away and just have some quality one on one time! We did a lot of hiking and hot-tubbing and Wade, Karen, Darryl, Sharman, and their kids were there too, so we met up with them a bunch of times, which was so fun. 

So that was our trip. It was awesome and it was especially great to escape the Nebraska heat for a week!
