Out West!

Howdy!! What a naturally stunning Canadian gem of a town! Banff, Alberta is gorgeous and a place where folks can participate in many healthy activities. We have hiked Sulfur Mountain, trekked the Bow Falls and navigated the foaming waters of the Bow River in Golden, B.C. in a raft. At this moment I am sipping a much anticipated glass of red wine with my daughters and enjoying the view of majestic Mount Norquay. I am completely exhausted but it feels marvellous.

My 16 year old daughter Kelsey-Lynn has been dancing at the Banff Center here in Banff. Talk about fitness! Sixty two young people from all over Canada and the US auditioned and have been accepted into this gruelling dance training program. They dance every day from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm and still have energy to party at night. I am impressed!

Rachel and Kiersten, my older two daughters, are staying in the West and taking a two week tour of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Nevada. All this before starting back to school in September. Chelsea will head off to camp pretty soon too.

I am working on more books but not tonight. We are settling in for a girls' night before we go our separate ways tomorrow. Party on!
