Getting up at 5:00 am and waking up two kids to drag with me... torture.
Riding the c-train by 5:30 am but getting free parking...unexpected.
Sitting on a curb on downtown Calgary fighting morons that think that they deserve a front row seat when they wander on in at 8:45 am for a 9:00 am parade start... frustrating.
Seeing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for about two milliseconds as they pass by in their car... disheartening.
Getting a picture of Princess Catherine looking RIGHT AT ME... priceless.
Especially the part where I almost pulled a groin muscle climbing into a restricted zone to try (unsuccessfully) to get better pictures.
