Drumheller, we get the point

We went on a mini vacation last week to Drumheller, Alberta. I keep a journal in the camper of all our camping adventures so as soon as I can get into the camper to get the journal I think I will just type it out as I wrote it. To say it was an adventure was the understatement of the year. We loved it of course, but the weather was horrible. We left here Sunday and spent the night in David Laird campground in North Battleford. Really cute little spot. Monday morning we got up and drove to Drumheller. We arrived just as a tornado watch/hail warning did, and were advised NOT to set up our camper just then (we have a pop up tent trailer). I was freaking and suggested we go to a hotel, but we didn't and all was fine. We went to get a few groceries, came back and set up (in the rain). I don't want to spoil the whole story for you, but it does get better. It just needs the pictures to go along with it for you to TRULY appreciate our adventure. So here's just a little taste, and as soon as I get the other pictures uploaded from the big camera you'll be in for quite a story.

The road that just keeps going and going......

Yellow canola feels everywhere
He actually fell asleep like this.
So hungry he's eating the napkin, but at least he's using his knife and fork
Breakfast buddy at Smitty's in North Battleford. Trying to roll his tongue.
More lunch on the road.

Wow, brave souls! I would have not bothered, lol. But I know that makes me sound like a spoiled city girl...oops I guess I am! Haha!

(Well, only for weather that means cold or wet or combination of the two---I hate the cold). Heatwaves I am fine with: I live in Ontario! :-)

I'm glad you ended up having fun though!!!
