Friday was the first day of the Calgary Stampede, starting with the Parade in the morning. Hubby decided to take the day off work and bring Audrey down to watch the parade. My office is along the parade route so I came down for a bit to watch with them.

Parts of the parade were pretty emotional. There were many signs thanking the volunteers and first response teams for their efforts during the flood. Many firefighters, police officers and EMS were part of the parade and there was lots of cheering as they walked by.
Apparently it's tough work watching a parade though...
Saturday we met some friends at Heritage Park. The girls had lots of fun and it brought back many childhood memories for me!

It was a full day and I was exhausted when we left. Audrey feel asleep before we even left the park.
Sunday my sister and I ran the Stampede Road Race 5K. I'll write a full race recap but I will say the weather was gorgeous and we had a course PR! We had lots of fun and are planning on putting our girls into the kids race next year!
After the race's pancake breakfast, we went to another pancake breakfast hosted by our friends. Only a couple days into Stampede and I might be good for pancakes for awhile!
Now to survive the rest of this week!
