hello, calgary

conrad passed his first ever plane ride with flying colours.  didn't even phase him one bit.  i was concerned with his ears popping but i fed him during take off and landing and it must've worked because it didn't seem to bother him at all.  he really took to the lady sitting beside us as he kept on pulling at her sleeve...must be a grandma thing.  he slept through most of the flight and behaved like a wee little angel when he was awake.  the lady sitting behind us said she didn't even realize there was a baby sitting in front of her!  pretty awesome, huh?

just chilling on aunty rita's couch, taking a break from watching ellen.

the aftermath of being fed by his aunt

catching up with dad.  i love free long distance calling.

i think traveling with young babies would be easier if there were baby suitcases.

the forecast was looking pretty cold before we left for calgary but luckily it really hasn't been that bad so we took a walk down to chinatown.  these people really know how to celebrate easter.

i didn't think calgary could be this modern. this house is just down that street from rita's apartment building.  it'll probably go for about a cool mill, as in $1,000,000.

oh, conrad, can you look a little more interested when partaking in goofy tourist photos with your mother?

so rita and i decided to go for a little afternoon snack at the famed (not really) ABC hong kong style cafe. we both ordered the HK style french toast with condensed milk which included an HK style tea.  i need to remember that i'm not in vancouver but rather calgary so i shouldn't be so critical on the chinese food here.  overall, it wasn't too bad.  

conrad often satisfies his curiousity by handling things and this piece of french toast sure intrigued him.  he went right for it, digging his little fingers into it.  little did he know that it was still hot.   so, there are two lessons to be learned here:

1.  don't touch hot things.  (conrad)
2.  remember to be faster on the draw.  (rita)

yeah, he really had a good hold of it.

all the sights have just tuckered this little guy out.  the weather quickly turned sour a few short hours after this photo was taken.  it started snowing.  what's with all the snow in march?  bizarre.
