So, some of you may recall that we donated some money to help a documentary film get made. This film (The Bus) is now complete, and we have been invited to the premiere screening, and pre-screening party in Missoula Montana. Now, when we originally did this, we were thinking the screening would happen in spring or summer, and would be a fun random little road trip, whenever it happened to be.
About a month ago, we got the e-mail announcing the film was complete, and premiere screening would take place on February 23rd (insert needle-scratch here). Admittedly, of all the Februarys

Admittedly, in the past 6 months or so since our wedding, the frequency of our adventures has ebbed to a relative low. We have temporarily shifted our gazes inward, to our home, and each other. Not a bad thing, unless you have your hearts set on lots of new blog posts…
On the September long weekend, we headed out west. We spent the first night in Yoho National Park, at a provincial campground. To our great surprise, we ran into some friends of ours at the same campground in the morning. It was great to have breakfast with

In late July we went on a 6 hour caving expedition in Canmore with Brandi’s dad. Unfortunately Pam wasn’t able to join us due to knee and shoulder injuries.

All together there were 5 of us on the tour.
There was about a 30 minute hike up to the cave. When we got up there, we donned harnesses, coveralls, leashes, hardhats,

Here is the completed map of our wedding trip travels:

We arrived back in Calgary in the middle of the Calgary Stampede with Brian having asthma/allergy breathing issues (likely due to all the hay in town for Stampede) and trying to get back in the swing of the working world and not having a new hot spring soak every day. We have

This morning, we drove down to the Crowsnest Pass to meet our friends Ian and Nathalie, so they could shoot some engagement photos for us.
We had originally discussed camping down there and coming home tomorrow, but in the end we decided to head home tonight. The weather is a little cool and wet, and we’re sooo tired!
As we turned onto Hwy 22, we noticed that a little blue Westfalia pulled in behind us. He saw me taking pictures, and we waved. Passed each other back and forth until
