I almost panicked!

We have been in Edmonton this week taking care of some business before we head to Banff and for some reason the internet in the park would not open my blog!  I was sure it was lost.  Thankfully Paul was able to find it although he says he didn’t do anything.  My computer wizard is being modest!  I don’t really care as long as I have my blog.  This is my personal diary of our adventures and I have no other written record and my memory is awful.  I would have to have someone tell me how much fun I have been having if I lose this blog!

Anyway,  Edmonton is a big city and we really have not explored much although we did go to the West Edmonton Mall, twice!  West Edmonton Mall, located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, is the largest shopping mall in North America and the tenth largest in the world by gross leasable area. The mall was founded by the Ghermezian brothers, who immigrated from Iran in 1959.  Now we have been to two of the huge malls and I have to say this one is pretty cool although there are not many shoppers here and since it is September a lot of the attractions close early so we didn’t get to see the amusement park or the rope climbing.  We did get to see some life guards doing some kind of drill in the Wave Pool at the water park.  The water park has a slide that does a loop!

Edmonton Hockey

There is a Ice Rink!  Full size and you can walk around the whole thing so watching the skaters is lots of fun. The day we were there there were some young girls practicing their moves.  Then later there were some guys playing a pick up game of hockey!  They were good!

800 stores and I couldn’t find a thing to buy!  We did have dinner at Tony Romas!  We could have had ribs at home and we travel to another country to enjoy them, yummmm!
