David was able to drive down to Okotoks with Millie to meet up with us on our last day in Alberta. We just met at Big Rock Elementary School (because in Alberta it's normal to use the school playground equipment outside of school hours (unlike out here where they lock up the school playgrounds and put threatening signs up on the fences about trespassing)). School hadn't yet started for the kids when we were up there, so the school grounds were empty and available.
It was fun for the little girls to play together again. It sure was hard to catch a picture of them together, though! They're both such busy little climbers that it was hard to catch both their faces in the same frame—up, down, around and around! I'll post this picture of Millie and Phoebe together since there aren't any identifying characteristics in this picture, but this is how most pictures turned out, with one girl facing the camera and the other not:
Before they arrived, we had the school grounds pretty much to ourselves. There was a boy shooting hoops and another riding a bicycle around the blacktop. And then a grandmother-granddaughter duo came to the park as well. But other than that we were free to explore all on our own.
I took some pictures of Miriam and Zoë helping Phoebe go down this long slide. It was so long and zippy that it was even fun for me to go down! Poor Phoebe felt it was a little too long and zippy for her tastes!
David and Millie arrived and we had a fun time playing with them!
I've mostly got pictures just with David and my parents to share today, though.
