So I had actually completely forgotten that there was a long weekend in May. So I ended up booking quite a few sessions during that weekend but still had Sunday and Monday free. Thats right FREE!! Woo hoo! So we decided to take the boy to the zoo. I'm actually ashamed at my lack of picture taking on this trip. The only photos I took were the ones posted here, aside from some iPhone shots. This is mostly because I recently bought a Canon AE-1 program which is a 35mm film camera. So most of my time was spent fiddling with it and trying how to learn how to shoot blind!
We stopped in Banff for some lunch and we had intended on renting a canoe and enjoying a leisurely afternoon, however, the crowds were on another level of crazy which I.cannot.handle. AT ALL. Which is the main reason I didn't join my boys in Disneyland this winter. I absolutely freak right out if I feel trapped in a crowd. So we didn't bother spending any more time in Banff, instead we got to Calgary, hit up some of our favourite stores so that I could start outfitting Kaz with school stuff, and of course Lee and I needed hats. Thats right...hats. Monday morning we were at the zoo bright and early and Kaz was stoked the entire time, like any other 4 year old would be when seeing an adorable red panda for the first time!
Luckily though, bunny (being the stuffy who got to come on the trip) didn't get eaten by any of the fierce creatures. Kaz kept him tucked away in his coat pocket so that nothing could get him...
