On December 20th, Rebecca and I flew home to Calgary. Rebecca’s mom, Bev, and her sister, Paige, were there to greet us and take us out to Strathmore. Over the next few days, we kept busy catching up with friends and family. Kevin and I made it out to Lake Louise with some friends. Before we knew it, it was Christmas Eve. We spent the day at my dad’s then I stayed the night at Scott and Jenelle’s. It was great to spend Christmas morning opening presents with my nephew, Wyatt. On Christmas Day, we spent time with Rebecca’s family including her Aunt Jo, Uncle Garry, and Cousin Stacey.
On Boxing Day, I flew down to Phoenix to see my mom and Vern. They recently bought a park model trailer in Gold Canyon…it is a very cool spot. I also drove over to Palm Springs to see my buddies, Kirk and Zack. It was nice to escape the cold in Calgary, get in some golf, and see Budster too.
Once I was back, Rebecca and I met some friends at Craft Beer House and had a good time. We also had a nice dinner with Rebecca’s dad, Barry, Carole, and Grandma Margaret. Our New Year’s Eve was a quiet one spent with Rebecca’s sister playing cribbage, bustin’ some dance moves on the PS3, and having some good food and drink.
Two weeks flew by and on Jan 3rd we sadly said goodbye to our family and flew back home to Abu Dhabi.
