Joel’s birthday started out like he had always dreamed, I mean dreaded…
with a trip to IKEA.
I know your husbands would be jealous.
I was so excited. I only have been to IKEA a few times and I love it!
I promised Joel we wouldn’t have to do any more shopping on this trip.
Luckily they had games for kids or husbands who were bored shopping.
Joel was such a good sport to go shopping on his birthday.
We went straight from IKEA to FATBURGER.
Who doesn’t like to eat on their birthday?
We spent the afternoon at the Calgary Olympic Park.
We tried out the medals podium. Joel let me be the gold metal winner. Isn’t he sweet?
Then headed to the icehouse.
Joel practiced the luge.
And we tried out the bobsled. I bet you didn’t know we were so athletic!
Can you believe people actually ski off of this thing?! They are crazy. It was so high up.
Joel was ready though.
And here he is accepting his Olympic gold metal. He was being such a goof that day.
Before we left we had to test out our hockey skills. Like true Canadians. We weren’t very good.
My aunt had to show us how it was done. In high heels and all!
