I'm just pumped. I think I'm one of the only Calgarians that really love Stampede. Last night I was scootering around downtown and people were already lining up their chairs. There are parking lots around the parade route that have regular campers stay overnight too. I drove by Fort Calgary which is the starting ground of the parade and the back entrance for the Saddledome and the horses and people were all gearing up the parade..

This morning I scootered through the parade route. All the floats are getting ready. (**Wheew*** all the hot cops and EMS on their mountain bikes and motorbikes... yummy!) It's just such a wicked energy down here.. So I'll be back at my computer after the parade.

I LOVE THE STAMPEDE!!! I always told DH that its the best time not to be pregnant or else we would be broke from me eating all the food.. THOSE LITTLE DOUGHNUTS forget about it.. If I was pregnant at this time of year I swear I would weight 3X's what I should
