Alberta Bound , Alberta Bound


Its good to be Alberta Bound .  I know my Canadian bloggers will remember this song  written by Gordon Lightfoot .

This song has even more sentiment to us here now as our youngest son James is now on a plane on  his way to Alberta for 5 months and  this is his first trip on his own . He has taken a summer job there on  one of the many  remote resorts . The resort is on the boarder of Alberta and British Columbia so he will see the rocky mountains out his window every day  . James decided to do this after seeing an add for jobs there and thought it would be a great adventure and experience for him and he has always wanted to go to the west part of our Country . He will be doing all kinds of jobs there as well as taking in all the fun activity they do there . It was also James Birthday yesterday  he turned 22. He has finished his welding school and has all his certificates  and now he is ready for some summer adventure .

                                                                                             James and I . 317626_10150434272965031_6050355_n

                                                                     James and His older brother David  .

Both are welders the oldest is also a mechanic and we are proud of them both . David and James are close so this trip of James brings out the big brother in David  as his Facebook messages to James tell all . They are like two peas in a pod . We will miss him but hope he has a great time there .There is no cell service and very minimal Wi-Fi at the resort but he will do his best to keep in touch .   Safe travels James and have a load of fun . Luv ya kiddo xoxox .

Well that's about it for me for now the weather has been terrific and I have been outside from sunrise to sunset , rain for over night tonight and into tomorrows , so I will be posting of the sunny warm days  and all the photos I have taken . 

                                                                                             Until next time .

Such a great opportunity. You’ll have to go back to old fashioned letter writing if no cell service or wifi 😃

Sounds like your son, James, will have a great adventure with his summer job. We know that you will keep us updated whenever you can, Elaine.
