This has been such an exciting week, as we ventured over to the beautiful city of Montreal to spread some Western Hospitality during the 2008 Grey Cup. We started out by going to the WestmountPark Elementary School to bring a taste of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth to the children, with the 20/20 Band, fun Clowns, and of course, “Charlie Horse” the Stampeder’s Mascot. We sang and danced with the entire school with cardboard cowboy hats on each child’s head! We all had so much fun, we didn’t want to leave!
Then we had our famous FREE Stampede pancake and sausage breakfast in the Festival Village with the wonderful people of the Calgary Grey Cup Committee. My fellow Royals and I became pro pancake flippers, souvenir football tossers, and two-step teachers! We danced with anyone who’d lend out an arm… Even Touche’ the Alouettes Mascot! What a blast we had!
After our “Royal Duties” were finished, the girls and I hit the town to experience “Old Montreal” …but about a hundred years ago, it wasn’t called that, it was just called “Montreal”! (hehehe!) That line was cracked from our carriage driver as he toured us down the beautiful historic streets. We also got to see the Notre Dame Cathedral, in two words-Breath taking! Montreal will forever have a special place in my heart, and to top it all off… STAMPEDERS WON THE GREY CUP!!! YA-HOO!!
Now we enter into Christmas season, and come December-Its Vegas Time for the National Finals Rodeo! Lets see what kind of adventures we will run into then!
