Kriss and Danica's Wedding
is my Mum and Dad on their wedding day. They got married in Jasper, AB in
1997.They have lots of tales to tell.
Mum is from Vancouver originally, and my Dad is from Glasgow, Scotland. They
both met in Australia in 1996 while traveling and working around the country. It
was love at first sight and they spent their first three days together on a
deserted stretch of Australian beach. It was very romantic and they have been
stuck like glue together ever since.
exploring more of Australia they traveled through
SE Asia (lived on a fishing boat, chased Komodo Dragons and met lots of
interesting people and sites), then over to Scotland where they battled the
Scottish winter as bicycle couriers. In
April 97 they came to Canada so Kriss could get the once over by my mums
mum before they got married! They
took a train through the Rockies and were married outside of a bed and breakfast
cozily nestled in the mountains surrounding Jasper, Alberta. They bicycled out
to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; sleeping with a herd of Bison, getting caught in a
blizzard and hitching part of the way!
decided to join them in May while my parents were busy fighting off black flies
at a tree planters camp. That
summer I was still
just a little bump (getting rapidly bigger) And we had lots of
adventures. I got jostled about in the 27 foot school bus we lived
in and could hear our new little puppy Sophie playing outside of Mums
belly! Mum and Dad say that
raising a puppy was a trial run for getting used to having me!
winter approach in 1997 they decided against spending their first Prairie winter in a bus so bought a little house
with a big yard just outside of Saskatoon instead. I decided to peak out into
the world when my parents seemed suitably established and you can read all about
my life in the section about My Life.
and Dad miss me very much and they have lots of pictures of me all over our
house. They are keeping very busy with work and school. Dad is in a Degree
Nursing program just now, and Mum is in a Biology degree program. Every day they
think of me and realize how precious every day
is. They want to share the
gift of love they gained from
having little me!
think theyre great!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kriss, Ocean and Sophie ready to go out.
Danica and Ocean!
