Carrots and Legacy Trail

In September we scrambled to use up the fruits of our garden.
Roger plucked up pounds of carrots which kept us busy all afternoon slicing, dicing freezing and converting the carrots into soup and cake!

We turned out super sweet cherry tomatoes into quinoa salad.  Yum..

I also found myself in Calgary for a quick visit.  We headed to the Saskatoon Berry Farm for a delicious lunch and a look at some of the last flowers of summer.

My dad and I headed out to bike the Legacy Trail which links Canmore to Banff.  

After biking for 3 minutes, my dad pulled over into a gravel parking lot and pulled out this 2 sided list off stretches.

He spent about 5 seconds doing this stretch on each leg, than hopped back on the bike and was off.

Lunch.... yay.
Biking lunches with my dad are always bare bones.  Shake and bake chicken sandwich, 2 carrots, 2 cucumbers, 1 banana and 1 muffin each.  
Even Steven.
NO chocolate, NO cookies, NO ice cream.

Mount Rundle, looking quite pretty.

And no visit to Calgary would be complete without seeing these two little munchkins.
It's sad now though because Erin's in school full time, so no more playing all afternoon long
