I am going on a road trip. On May 1st to the 4th Karen and I are heading out to Calgary. I had been tossing around the idea in my head of going to Calgary to visit my grandpa for a while. I was thinking that even if I went by myself for a weekend sometime it wouldn't be too bad. I mentioned my idea to Karen one day and she said "I'LL GO!" And the idea of a road trip was born.
Karen and I have talked about doing a road trip before, we even had one almost planned a couple of years ago, but then Arleen had to drop out because of work, and Karen and I were too chicken to go to Edmonton on our own. I have to admit that after navigating around Calgary for Jason last summer I feel MUCH more confident going there. I have never driven in Calgary. I have only ever been a passenger, so this could be fun :)
Our plan is to do some shopping, visit my grandpa, do some more shopping and eat good food. We are planning to go to the Cheesecake Cafe. Jay and I went last summer and it was quite yummy! I booked our hotel this evening. I found a pretty decent looking hotel for $104/night, which with taxes works out to about $114/night. It looks MUCH nicer than the dump Jay and I stayed in last summer for $150/night :P
I am pretty pumped about this whole thing :) Girls weekend! Woooooo!
