July Itinerary – Northwest into Canada

5 states and 2 countries in 30 days; it sounds more than a little ambitious when put that way. But, hey, you can take the girls out of the type A situations, but it’s much harder to take the type A outta the girls.  July begins in Vancouver Canada where we will also celebrate our 8 year anniversary.  I’m told we’ll want to eat our way through Vancouver, so we’d better start fasting now.

Additional highlights will include both Glacier National Parks (in Canada and Montana) and the Calgary Stampede Rodeo.  My sister, Ann and Jen will also be joining us as cowgirls for the day at the stampede. Excitement is simmering, soon to be a full fledged boil.

Thanks to papa Ken, we’ll also enjoy some extra space near Banff with a few nights in his timeshare.  Then we will wrap up the month with a long visit with my bestie, Karen in Buffalo Grove Illinois, topped off with lawn seats and a picnic at a Steely Dan concert.  The last time we visited I think we averaged about 4 hours of sleep a night, must add no-doze to our shopping list.

Please leave a comment below if you have a suggestion for something we should work into our plans.
