First, I went to the playground and spent the better part of 30 minutes on the swing set all by myself. The sun was shining, the playground is by a pond, surrounded by enough green to hide hundreds of singing birds.
Then, I went for a long walk and enjoyed the morning’s summer heat, before lunching on my uncle’s pizza. Because it’s pizza, it’s always better the next morning at room temperature. What was the best pizza I ever had last night, actually outdid itself at today’s lunch.
We spent the later part of the afternoon driving to Calgary and though I missed all of the amazing photographic opportunities because I’m still learning how to work this new phone and it’s camera, I did enjoy them with my eyeballs. In Calgary, our first stop was to a teppanyaki restaurant, from which I could barely physically move once dinner was finished, because there was so much glorious food. Q, our chef, was wonderful and made the best dad jokes. Here we are, confused, because of the new camera –
To feel a little better about all of the food we consumed, we then walked the length of McHugh Bluff where I made a point of taking a ton of awful photos in the name of educating myself. I failed. Some photos after the jump.
Today, I am grateful for:
1. Road trips. I could spend the rest of my life taking road trips through North America and I would be satiated. There is so much to see and experience.
2. Dad jokes, which I find so endearing. When they’re at the lips of a normal dude, he becomes instantly hot.
3. Sour candies. I am sucking on them as I type, and they are so much fun.
