Happy Father's Day!

My favourite memory of my dad is when we would eat lunch together (black forest ham, lettuce, and cucumber sandwiches in pita pockets with chicken noodle soup) and watch the Flintstones before I would go to school in the afternoon. Miss you immensely, dad.

What is your favourite memory?

The days here have been...inconsistent. One day it is sunny, the next it is very rainy, or, like yesterday, very rainy then very sunny to very rainy. This had made it difficult to get out riding my bike. I love my bike and I love going for rides. But it needs to stop raining and, lets be honest, I need to get off my bum.

I wish Calgary was a better bike city. It has its trails here and there but not a lot of on-road bike lanes and the city is not very accessible to bike - there is so much sprawl. Do you live in a city that is easy to bike?

My friend, Teira, is in the Netherlands on an exchange and one of the first things she did was purchase a bike. She made this very cool video of her commute. I wish!

I miss you, T!

U2 part 2

At our seats!

This photo was taken by Latoya Wilson - a friend of mine who was also at the show. She was in the same section as us but in row 56. A very different (and sweet!) view than what Marley and I had at row 2. Massive stage!

Marley and I waiting for the concert!

The stage!

The stage was massive! The screen would shrink and expand and the video shot through the entire show was so cool - one of the best parts. They performed a lot of their older songs and a lot of new. I was really surprised that they played Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me and it may have been one of my favourite parts of the show. Marley's phone unfortunately died and my photos from my phone are not that great. We did get some cool videos though! It started raining a bit too and near the end of...I think it was Elevation...Bono started singing Singing in the Rain. So glad we got to go!

U2 was amazing! I'll write a bit more about it soon - but I am functioning on very little sleep so I am going to bed now. Hope you are all having a great week!

P.S. Happy birthday, Joe!
