Stampeding the Jetlag Away

A couple of years ago we decided to spend our family vacation in Canada.

When I was browsing the internet and looking up things to do while we were in Canada, we came upon a site that advertised for the Calgary Stampede. After reading the article we became very enthusiastic and decided to buy tickets.

When we finally arrived at Calgary Airport, we were welcomed with a very warm and musical “Yahoo” and off we went to the Calgary Stampede grounds. We grew to love Canadians and had a fantastic time.

Our boys (14 and nine) went totally out of their minds at the fairground and we spent the whole day at the festivities and in the evening enjoyed the Chuckwagon races and the Grandstand Show.
What a great way to chuck off the jetlag!!! Even a severe thunderstorm couldn’t spoil the fun!

You guys know how to put on a performance! So, this year we’re planning a return - and to our great delight saw that it’s the 100th Stampede. Our tickets have been purchased, our boots are polished – so get ready Calgary - here we come!
