We've been in Grimshaw since Friday, Sept 14th, doing nothing, just hangin' out and waiting....

This is the moment I've been waiting for - the birth of my 2nd grandbaby. She was born in the Grimshaw Hospital - which is something in itself, as the GH is not a full service hospital anymore. She was the only baby born in the hospital in over 5 years.

Well here she is - - Melody Ann Streeter, born on September 18th at 9:26 a.m.
She weighed 6 lbs 4 oz and was 19 1/4 inches long.

And I mustn't forget the proud parents - - daddy Farren (my son) and mommy Khrystal.

What a beautiful lake. We happened upon a beautiful sunshiny day which only made it nicer~~

Today we arrived at Mountainaire Lodge just north or Sundrie, Alberta. Michel's brother-in-law Pat Nixon, who runs the Mustard Seed Street Ministry in Calgary, also runs this lodge. It was a great week-end with lots to do. The day we arrived (August 31st) Michel went river rafting with his sister Lise and a group. It was his first time and he had a blast. Unfortunately I had hurt my back and was moving verrry slowly, so I didn't get to partake in the 'fun' things that weekend..... besides rafting, Michel was kept entertained.

He went horseback riding and atv-ing. Here is a picture of Jason (nephew) and Michel and Lise (sister) enjoying their ride.

The next picture is of their atv ride. The picture is of Jason Nixon (nephew) and Pat Nixon (brother-in-law)

It was a great weekend - great food - great company.

Visited the Frank Slide Enterpretive Centre today enroute to Calgary for a few days. There wasn’t very much to see - a huge pile of rock - but we stopped for a look and a few pictures anyway.

Visited Fort Steele today. One more historic town under our belts…..and yet another step back in time. To the 1890’s to be exact. Situated on over 12 acres there are many heritage shops, display buildings and museum exhibits. Many of the buildings are original, others have been re-created for the ambiance of the village. We watched a blacksmith at work demonstrating the making of horse shoes. We watched a demonstration on gold panning. We took a ride through the town in a horse-drawn wagon. We even took a ride on the Fort Steele Railway. The “Living History” performance at the Wild Horse Theatre as called “The True Story of How the Train Came to Fort Steele (almost)”. It was quite entertaining.

Here is a picture of our moho on the ferry. Lucky for us the ferry was running late, cause so were we. Just made it in the knick of time. So now we’re off to Cranbrook.
