Today in Beaumont....

We took Doog out for a walk and then took a little drive around taking a few photos of the countryside around Beaumont.

We even saw a herd of dear!

And Doog made friends with a cute little puppy at the off-leash park.

Banff, last weekend.....

Here's Neil knocking on Mandy and Kelly's door at 7.30am last Friday. Our destination for the weekend....Banff ! It was snowing when we left Beaumont. First stop...Tim Hortons.
We stopped in Canmore for lunch and then had a nice relaxing evening of eating and drinking in Banff. On Saturday morning we headed up to Sunshine for a spot of skiing. Here we are ready to leave the hotel with Neil, Mandy and Kelly all dressed in black like a group of ninjas!
On the lift......

Mandy striking a pose on the slopes.....

Here's Neil with a breathtaking Rocky Mountain backdrop ( I don't know if you can see but Kelly is pissing against the tree in the background!)

We stopped a passer -by for a group shot but he wasn't the best photographer and managed to cut off all our feet. Never mind it's still a good one of alll four of us.

Do you think my mouth looks big when I wear these glasses?

Sorry, I'm lazy!

I know I haven't posted anything for ages and so you've all probably stopped looking at this blog. Well I just haven't felt like blogging. I've been a bit homesick lately and have been so busy!

Anyways the big news of the week is that Doog has hurt his leg. We don't know how he did it, we just came home one day and he was limping badly and not putting one of his front feet down at all. We don't know if it's a break or a bad sprain but poor little Doog doesn't like it one bit! We tried him with a bandage but, like when he wears his booties, he just can't walk. He tries to do this Bambi thing where every step is exagerated into a giant leap! Eventually we took the bandage off thinking he was bound to damage himself further by wearing it.

He he is looking a bit freaked out !

In other news, we went to visit a baby donkey the other day. Her name is Lightning McQueen, yes you heard me correctly! HER name is LIGHTNING MCQUEEN! One of my friends from work has 40 acres just outside of Beaumont. She has three donkeys, some fainting goats, a couple of dogs and lots of cats. It's a really cool place, tucked away in the trees. Anyway her donkeies Fancy and Thunder, have had a baby. It was born last week and we got to go and visit when she was only two days old. She was very cute indeed!

Here she is, little Lightning! Ahhhh!

And this is mummy, Fancy the donkey.

Here's Neil with Dad, Thunder, and below, with the fainting goats (which really do faint apparently!)
