Sam, Pete, and Chloe take a trip to Calgary, Canada

Mitch kept inviting Sam and Pete to visit him up in Calgary, so they finally decided to take him up on his offer. Chloe tagged along so she could see the Saddledome, home rink of her favorite hockey team, the Flames. A great time was had by everyone on the vacation, but Sam and Chloe wished that it hadn't been so scorching hot the whole time they were there! When they arrived, the Stampede was already over, but Mitch took them around to see the grounds and the Saddledome anyway. Mitch also took them out into the mountains at Elbow Falls for a hike and a BBQ, but Pete forgot the camera, so no pics. Chloe did some shopping, and they all toured around downtown Calgary, stopping to hear a free concert at Olympic Plaza, and have their picture taken by the Canadian Suffragette statues. It was an excellent visit, and the three hope to go back in the winter to take in a Flames game and see some snow. Thanks for a great visit Mitch!

Meet the Mistrys

The Mistrys, after 6 years of living in California, are heading back to New Zealand. Good friends to Sam and Pete, Mr. Mistry and Sam play soccer together every sunday in their yellow jerseys, and occasionally commute to work together; usually arguing about politics and sport. All the Mistry's friends here in California will miss them, but wish them a safe journey home to beautiful New Zealand, and hope they'll be able to come back often. Bon Voyage Kamal, Priya, and kids!

Chloe is a definite "girly-girl", who is a total romantic. She loves walks on the beach and strawberry milkshakes. Her favorite flower is the rose, and her favorite movie is Gone With the Wind. A bit of a drama queen at times, Chloe identifies with Scarlett O' Hara. Her not-so-secret passion is... ice hockey. In particular the Calgary Flames, who have been her favorite team since the early 80's.
