A Little Detour

We decided to go to the Frank Slide on Saturday and take my mom. When we went to pick her up she asked if we could go to Drumheller instead...sure a little detour would be okay. It's not like the Frank Slide is moving anytime soon! Right, Rhino?!

Drumheller was having a quilt show and they had closed down a street and had the quilts hanging up. It was really nice and some of the quilts were fantastic. Note to self must get working on my quilt again. We had lunch at a place that all the locals recommended. I think they must like poor service, surly waitresses and overpriced food to even entertain the idea of eating there. Anyways, we survived and no one got food poisoning!

We then went to the Royal Tyrrell Musuem. Okay, so I knew in the back of my head that it was world class but seriously I had no idea how cool it really was. The Princesses never really got huge into the dinosaur thing but they still thought it was neat. I'm sure that boys would be in paradise. One thing that did rub me the wrong way was the number of people shoving children into the exhibits to get pictures. I guess they just didn't see the sign "DO NOT ENTER" or maybe it just didn't apply to them.

Since I also read way too much stuff in the blog land I could have had an entry for the People of Wal M*rt! I had my phone with me but I just couldn't work up the nerve to take the picture without looking super obvious. A woman had hair that looked like something out of the Lion King. It was backcombed about 6 inches off her head and then twisted into little sections and gelled into place. It was very strange! I wasn't the only person checking it out either. I am sure she goes through mountains of hairspray.

We've also started up our geocaching hunting again. We did 3 of them last night. It was a lot of fun. We found a couple in Fish Creek Park but we had to leave as the mosquitoes were so bad. Tomorrow we go to get Miss Cinderella's hair cut she wants it like her sisters. Princess Belle is a trendsetter as the neighbour also cut her hair in the same style.

And on that note when is my only blog follower going to update her blog?! I know you are busy but I check everyday!
