Hello everyone. Time is flying by so quicky, I can’t believe we’re already halfway through the year!
Had a bit of a quiet week the week before last. We had Neil on the Wednesday and planned on a picnic at Garry Point in Steveston, but it was so windy we got straight back in the car and drove home again :(. In the picture below, the guy flying the kite is actually on wheels and was being ‘towed’ around by the wind.
So, we just hung around at home. It wasn’t so windy in our area.
The next day, Tori gave Chewy a hair cut
As you can see, she’s not very impressed!
Neil was back with us on Saturday night for the night while his parents had a date night
Not sure what’s going on there, but it looks like a serious conversation! :). Maybe they’re planning their gaming strategy.
And then we got some sad news on Tuesday. Tori’s Dad passed away. Only 3 months after his Mom. We’ll be travelling up to Northern Alberta in August for a memorial with the family.
Mid-week saw Neil back with us again and we went shopping
and then played at the park for a little bit
On the weekend I started two new series on my blog, The Jane Effect. The first one is on the top 12 beaches in BC (I love beaches). You can read about the first two here. There really are some beautiful beaches in BC that rival anything you’ll find in Mexico or the like. The second is a more permanent fixture – wine pairing. You can read the first in the series here. I know absolutely nothing about wine pairing, but would love to learn. Follow along if you would too.
We ended off the week with a bike ride with about, oh, 200 other riders
There’s me in the red.
And a barbecue and party at the end of it, complete with live band
Yes, that’s me in the red 🙂
Cheers for now.
