Winter and Waterton IV

Story Time Yo!

Round One.

Cathy brought fruit snacks.
We love fruit snacks.
Bonnie decided to take control of the fruit snacks.
She liked the power of it all.
While we waited for Cathy and Trent (our only snowshoers), Bonnie doled out fruit snacks.
Her throw was terrible.
But Clark showed off his own skills.
Good work team.

Round Two

We wanted to sled.
But our sled wouldnt slide down the hill.

Bonnie decided to help get Cath on her way.

It took a little bit.

But eventually she got on her way.

That ride was ok so we decided to try the knee board we brought with.

Bonnie did her best to help Amy go down the hill.

It didnt work out so hot.

And decided that rolling down the hill was a better option.

Round Three
This picture got taken and Bonnie cried a little about her hair.

So she decided to take her toque off. Like that would help.

Bonnie. Sometimes you have terrible ideas.

This next one was really bad.

"I'll put snow in my hair. That'll fix it"
Bad Idea Bonnie. From now on that is what you shall be known as. Bon Tron is a thing of the past. Bad Idea Bonnie. That is the future.

Feel free to laugh at how ridiculous Bonnie is.

So I decided to help a poor girl out. I have mad skills. Promise.

But not before spiking it like we were back in Junior High.

Bon Tron. I like you cause you're cute.

See? I made it better.

Round Four

So here's the story. Scottie Too Hottie decides that he will take a turn sledding down the hill off the side of the road. Several people had gone before.
So Scottie jumps head first onto the sled. And hits a rock and goes flying. He picks himself up and heads down feet first.
After he bails at the bottom we hear a call from Scott below.
"My pockets were undone. The car keys and my phone are gone."

Scottie. Why? Why must you be like that?

Bonnie calls out for prayer. And the rest of us call out for someone to call his phone. We're standing at the top of the hill where Scott first wiped out. And suddenly I heard buzzing. The phone was in the snow. We got them to keep phoning and we started to follow the buzzing.
We narrow it down and Clark and I begin digging in the snow. He busts out the phone. I keep digging in the snow and find the keys.

Yup. Clark and I are awesome.
Friends on, for sure.

Round Five
Let it be seen. This is Bonnie sledding down the side of the road.
At the end... where the sled goes flying off the edge. Keep that in mind.
Its a cliff. That leads to the creek below.

Round Six.

Cathy and I decided to go down the hill. We didnt realize two things:
1. That we'd be going really fast
2. That we'd need to bail so early so we wouldnt go over the cliff.

Yup... we did not bail. And were therefore destroyed by the cliff and the trees below.

Cathy jacked her ankle. Lost her boot and one snow shoe was ripped off.
My whole left side was dead. Not cool.
There was like ten feet of untouched snow that we
flew over. Insanity.

Yup. We were at the bottom and we're just killing ourselves laughing.
Hysterically. Because we were dead.

All in all a pretty great day.

MBP Christmas

Yup. I'm on their Christmas card list.
Cool, right?

Winter and Waterton III

Bonnie's phrase of the day?
"This is a non-judgement day right? We're not gonna be judging my outfit right?"
"If you see something that you think is my bum, I promise you it is not"
Oh Bonnie.

Then she promptly harshly judged me and my winter outfit.
The Leishman Cabin is not winterized. But the fire was a roaring.
Trent does good work.

Cathy hates pink. But loves her snow pants.
I like them too.

Amy. I like your layers.

We all snuggled into the car to drive to Red Rock Road (or whatever its called).
Cathy, Me, Clark Cahoon and Bon Tron.

We put Trent in the back of the burb. Poor dear. When we were done for the day we accidentally forgot him in there. And never came back for him.

Winter and Waterton II

I'll say it right now. I love my friends. And they are the reason that Waterton is great for me. If we were somewhere else, I would love it there too. I'm not picky. Being with them makes me happy. They're hilarious. ALL THE TIME. And ya just can beat that. And amazing in a hundred other ways.

For instance, during this Christmas season I havent been doing a ton of driving. I technically dont really have a car of my own. So they come and pick me up. For pretty much everything we do. And drive me home. They're seriously amazing.

Plus how cute are Bon Tron and I?
I just like us.

Another example you say? We're driving in the Leishman Suburb on our way to Waterton.
It is a tight fit.
Cathy, Bonnie, Me, Trent.

And then Scott and Jon Leishman and Amy in the front.
Tight fit.
But my friends kinda like me.
And let me lay across them in the back.

Good people I tell you.

Will She Wont She

Take a gander at this little ditty.
Yup. That envelope contains the fate of my life.
It tells me whether or not I suck at life.
It holds within it a little bit of my hopes and dreams.
It is my dental board results.
Was I terrified to open them?
Did I contemplate not opening it?

Guess what happened?

Yup. That is relief people. Washing over me.


Winter and Waterton I

Please Be In Love With Me.
Alberta is AMAZING.
