Summer is my husband's busy time of year. Unless he's booked the time off or the weather is lousy we hardly spend any time together. His work was rained out for a few days the other week so we took a spur-of-the-moment day trip up the Icefields Parkway to Jasper. We saw several bears that day in about half-a-dozen "bear jams." That's where several vehicles are stopped along both sides of the highway congesting traffic. I was quite content to let my husband take care of the bear shots, but mostly I was happy to spend the day with him.
Taking the time to play together is important. --photos by Mr. Goat's Lunch Pail
