Yesterday we took the C Train to downtown Calgary. It's a place we didn't get to last summer when we were there and we thought a visit to the Devonian Gardens would be nice on a cold winter day. These gardens make up the top floor of The Core Downtown Centre, a 5 story building with shopping on the bottom four levels. It was warm and humid and just a lovely break from the cold.
The huge lights on the ceiling provide artificial sunlight for all the trees and plants growing there.
People were enjoying visits, playing cards and reading in this area.
These ladies were enjoying a game of cards and brought their lunch with them too.
The roots and trunk of one of the trees.
A family jam. :)
The climbing wall in the playground. Ewan and Eli had fun here of course. Liam was with us too but slept most of the time in the stroller.
I thought this frosted glass floor very interesting. Maybe you've seen them before but I haven't. It was so cool to see just the feet walking across it.
The glass ceiling over the mall. It's a really beautiful building.
This is looking out the window at the food court onto Stephen Ave. The sculpture looks like something out of Star Wars doesn't it? I will share more photos soon of our walk along Stephen Ave. It was very cold with the wind whistling down the street and I would definitely come back for a summer visit. Taking the C Train is such a convenient way to get into the city core from the suburbs.
I know you want to see a photo of the baby, right? Liam turned 6 months old yesterday and we took some photos today.
He's not sitting on his own yet. He has started on solids this past week and loves food! Isn't he adorable?
Grampie reading to Ewan and Eli. :)
We only have two more full days here before we fly home again. It will be difficult to leave our dear family once again. And. We have to go home to a world full of snow! I've been spoiled the past few days. I'll post again after we get home.
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
