Alberta Blogging: Why Fox Creek?

13 May

In Toronto, we waited an hour and a half, then boarded another plane for Edmonton.

In Edmonton, we waited for my younger brother and his girlfriend and then we all drove three hours north west, headed for Fox Creek. On Saturday May 11th, we did the whole thing backwards. Suddenly, the trip was over. We were left with amazing memories and the promise of future adventures.

Now…

Why would we go to Fox Creek?

My mom doesn’t need to hop on a tour bus. She’s perfectly happy relaxing, cooking for my brother, and walking around the tiny town.

Some boxes...

a cat...

And most of all?

His Uncle Jesse!
