[July 7, 2014]
R's cousins from Arizona commandeered a massive van and trekked up to Calgary to visit for 10 days. Whenever they come, we do all the fun and touristy stuff around Calgary that we never do otherwise. We kicked it all off with a picnic at Shouldice Park, near the Bow River. We actually did picnics at Shouldice twice while they were in town. Both times, one of my work colleagues rode through on his bike on his way home and saw me there. He started to wonder if I had taken up a permanent residence in the park.
