Friends & Family Birthday Celebration

I went to The Canadian Brewhouse and celebrated by birthday with friends. The Canadian Brewhouse is fun but it is very hard for me to got there. The tables are all high or there is a step to get up into another level. There are only 2 tables I can sit at. The parking is very hard sometimes. The one handicapped parking spot isn’t wide enough for a side ramp, so we had to park in the Sobeys parking lot (in the rain). But I still had fun!

On Sunday my Mom took me too the Paint Pottery. There is a step into the building so we had to use my manual chair. The table was too high to get my knees all the way under and the bathroom isn’t wheelchair accessible. We did have fun though. I painted a birdhouse (with some help from my Mom). I liked to paint the top of my bird house because I could do it by myself! It was hard to do the front of the house because there was little places like flowers to paint. My Mom had to help me a lot.


We had a family supper and for dessert we had homemade chocolate/peanut butter cheesecake that my Mom made. It was very good.


My Mom made me moccasin boots for winter but it took to long so I got them for my birthday! I love them and can’t wait to wear them. They are my favorite color red and have my favorite butterfly on them. I also got an iPad cover it is blue with butterflies!


After cake and gifts we played Yahtzee. Yahtzee is my favorite game…. and I WON!

On Monday June 5th my roommate Kat, my staff Jodhi and I went to Banff. The first day we went to downtown Banff and I went shopping. I bought my Mom a candle and my Dad chocolates. I bought gifts for my roommates; Janelle a stuffed animal,  Theresa a mug and Craig a shirt. I also bought myself a sweater! It was a good day.


On Tuesday June 6th in the morning we went to Johnston’s Canyon and hiked the canyon and saw the waterfall. It was hard for me because there was rock in the middle of the path and I couldn’t make it all of the way in my wheelchair. I loved seeing the waterfall.


In the afternoon we went to the Red Earth Spa. I got a facial and it was so nice! I got to wear a bath robe  and sandals. I layed on a bed and they put a hot cloth on my face. They massaged my feet and my head and it felt awesome! We went to a pool in the spa and went swimming. It was really nice and warm. I would recommend this to anyone! This was my favorite day!


We went to a cafe and I had a piece of cake for my birthday it was good.

When we were driving we saw Mountain Sheep on the side of the road. It was cool to see them!


Wednesday June 7th MY BIRTHDAY!!!! We went to the Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail. We saw bears and tigers. It was easy for me to get around.

I got a picture with a Beaver named Gus, Gus!


When we were driving the view was so pretty. I love the mountains. It looked like a picture.


My 22nd Birthday was pretty awesome!
