Last weekend we headed to Jasper, Alberta to meet up for a quick visit with Aunt Carol and Uncle Larry. This was Cora and Great Uncle Larry's first meeting. I have to say, I think he was pretty smitten with her. Cora was still mesmerized by Great Aunt Carol. We all had a grand time. They were on holiday traveling through the Canadian Rockies and into Montana. We had an absolutely wonderful and relaxing time. We rode the gondola up Whistler Mtn, checked out Athabasca Falls, sat in the sunshine on the banks of Lac Beauvert, ate wonderful home cooked food, drank fabulous wine by the fireplace, and had wonderful conversation. What more could someone want in a weekend? Here are a zillion and a half more pictures for everyone to enjoy.

I wish this picture was on video instead. She was squealing in delight and kicking her feet.

We're in Canada now, eh?
Cora with a Mountie. Lee and I were just discussing how we were going to celebrate Cora's nationality when we leave Canada. This picture will always be a good memory!
