Of course the day we leave to head North for cooler temps and fall foliage a cold front moves into the Houston area!
But no matter the temps in Houston, we wouldn't have seen as many golden leaves as we saw in Calgary...
...or towering pines. The weather was just gorgeous, a bit windy but sunny and high 50s all weekend.
We went to visit family and friends for the long Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.
Some pumpkin spice muffins were in order for the festivities.
We had a very non-traditional feast of spicy chicken, potatoes and veggies~ all ordered in so we could relax at granny's house.
Drinks with good friends and dinner at Model Milk. Such a cute restaurant with great service and food! It's so fun to check out the Saturday night crowd in a different city. Very different from the Houston crowd out on the town that's for sure.
Moi~ enjoying a glass of vino and a fun night with hubby. Knowing that our kiddo was in heaven at home with her grandparents made the night all the more relaxing and enjoyable.
Sunday morning sunrise on the back patio.
A long stroll around the lake. Taking in the cool, dry air and final fading of color before the harsh Calgary winter hits.
Daddy and his girl strolling along.
Me and my girl.
The pretty tree in front of granny's house.
This was our first Canadian Thanksgiving celebration and we had such a great weekend we might have to make it a tradition. Nothing beats being surrounded by good, loving people for an extended weekend.
