From little to huge...

This is my dog Lilly. She is the smallest, cutest little dog in the world. You just can't help but love her. I said goodbye to my family (and Lilly) and left for Canada to find another dog friend only....
he is HUGE. I went from the smallest dog ever, to the biggest.
This is Magnum. He is my boss' dog. This guy is with me 40+ hours a week, 6 days a week. He is great company, but sometimes VERY stinky. My first encounter with Magnum was not a good one. I am slightly afraid of big dogs and so when i saw him i was hiding behind Eric the whole time. My first day of work he came into the office room and sat under the table by my feet the entire time. He didn't leave my side. That was the start of our friendship. Now he always comes and sits under the table once i walk into the office. It's just tradition. He is probably one of the nicest dogs you will ever meet. He looks big, mean, and tough, but he is the biggest teddy bear there is. He is such a pansy-he is afraid of bikes, cats, long boards, and guitars. Eric was playing his guitar over here once and Magnum started freaking out and was barking out of control. It was funny. All in all i enjoy his company, but now i am just missing my dog, lilly.

I went with Eric to one of his service calls one morning and it was a pretty drive
We stopped to take a picture by a "yellow field"...a lady drove by and told us that it's called canola and it's where canola oil comes from-i guess you learn something everyday :)

We took a little walk on a rainy and windy day, but it was still REAL fun
We had some good views
Pretty view of the river
This is the path we took on our walk

We stopped at the Emonton Mall (supposedly the 2nd largest mall in the world) and of course we got ice cream :)
The reason for our trip was to come to this GREAT place! I LOVE the temple!

How We Spent Our 4th Of July

the 4th of July has always been a holiday that i enjoy. It's so good to spend time with the family, eat good food, and watch fireworks at night. A day of play and relaxation=the BEST. This 4th of July was a little bit different for Eric and I. Since we are in Canada they don't celebrate the 4th which meant no fireworks, but instead we saw a tornado!
Tornados have always been one of my most dreaded fears. I am so afraid of storms;thunder, lightning, the whole sha-bang just doesn't thrill me as it does some people. I was freaked out of my mind when one of the technicians called me and told me there was a tornado outside. It was such a good thing that Eric was at the office with me at that time or else i would have been FREAKING OUT even more than i was. It helped brighten Eric's day a little bit, so that is good i guess. It definitely didn't do the same for me. I am praying that this is the ONE AND ONLY tornado that i will ever see in my life!

What we have been up to in Red Deer...

Eric is a pro at this game. We had lots of fun going out one afternoon playing in the sun-i am so sun-deprived this summer its ridiculous :) But we had lots of fun, i showed Eric how it's done (that is why in the picture he is rubbing his eeyes-he was so worn out after i worked him in tennis) :)

Since there really isn't much to do in Red Deer, we went for a little walk on a path that we found at a park we were chilling at one day. It was actually a really nice place-full of trees and plants and a little stream (it was actually kind of a stinky stream). It was good to
get out of our apartment and go see what's around us-which isn't much. :)
