day 204: we've been having some pretty big storms of late. they make for some pretty spectacular skies!
day 205: tonight was finn's last soccer game, which they won! figo was somewhat unimpressed :)
day 206: finn's buddy slept over last night. i think they got all of 2 hours of sleep, hence the happy but hung over looks :)
day 207: great night with the stew-cams and a lovely evening for a walk to the overlook.
day 208: the boutins bought this absolutely groovy little motorhome for touring across canada!
day 209: spent the day gardening. sore, but satisfying work! ian took this panorama of the backyard when we were done.
day 210: took mouton to visit gramma today. wanted to see if he'd be okay staying with her instead of a kennel. pretty sure he's okay with it. :)
day 211: love the, relatively new, food truck culture in calgary! today i tried Montreal Smoked Meat Hash at the Red Wagon Diner. super friendly peeps and delicious food! check it out!

day 201: today required 2 photos. i like the first one best, but it requires some context, hence the second photo. this is a super cool sculpture of an upside-down church, installed in our neighborhood. it caused quite the controversy when it first arrived, but we love it.
day 202: this dragonfly was most accommodating! he landed on the fence post and just sat there waiting for me to snap a few shots (with my iphone!).
day 203: yesterday spent the day watching the U18 Tier 1 girls team play (excellent and they won!) and then just drove around checking out newer neighborhoods. so not as many photo-worthy moments :) and today is just hanging at home....

day 189: it rained most of the day, so we ended up having a movie marathon, which isn't terribly photo worthy. luckily, right before bed, i noticed this beautiful moth just hanging out on the front door.
day 190: we're very lucky to have a great view of the stampede fireworks for all ten days. even from bed!
day 191: go kart racers!
day 192: beautiful weather for both the stampede and winning stuffies on the midway!

Day 186: tonight we had a soccer wrap-up party for 45 people! Aside from the monsoon, it was a great night. This is our little 'party pig' from Wild Rose beer!
Day 187: today the sun came out...AFTER the party. My sunflowers are looking a lot less drowned!
