Beach on a Fall Day October 28,2008

Darren had one day off so we headed off to the beach for a walk around. Should preface by saying I stoled my parents dog as they are having their floors refinished and I thought Mia might appreciate the break from all the noise. So we all piled in the car and went to White Rock for a beautiful morning jaunt. Mia was thrilled to be running around with Bronny but was slightly hesitant when she saw Bronwynne plow into the water. It doesn't matter what season it is for Sam and he continues to think he is a digger and went right to work getting dirty. Life of a boy hey!

Pumpkin Carving October 25,2008

Last night we had Darren's family over for our annual pumpkin carving night. We hosted as we had about 23 pumpkins. I would say the unfortunate part is my pumpkins we still green as we had a lack of sun this summer and I had a late start(note for next year!). Darren pre-cleaned a few of the pumpkins and I whipped up a batch of Chicken Catchatori with spaghettini. For desert I made a homemade eat-more bar and my cousins fruit coffee cake. The kids seemed to have had fun and ate so that always makes for a better evening. All and all another successful pumpkin night! Till next year!

Pumpkin Patch October 19,2008

Today we had the pleasure of meeting some friends at Alder Acres in Langley. We had a lovely time the kids stomped around saw a few animals and giggled and laughed. We took a hay ride in the pumpkin patch. Sam was more in love with the tractor pulling the hay wagon, that's my boy!
After the pumpkin patch we all headed out for a lunch at the Spaghetti Factory. All the kids did really well and humored us throughout the meal.

Thanks again friends!

Day trip to the Vancouver Library October 16,2008

On a grey,cloudy and soggy day we headed to the Vancouver Library as they were hosting a book sale. We thought it would be a nice way to get out of the house for the day and enjoy a bit of city life. Unfortunately we have sick Sam and he was ever so grumpy once we arrived at the library. We managed to have a look around and grab a couple of new reads. Then we grabed a cup of joe and took a stroll around. It actually was nice just to walk around Sam was cozy in his stroller which was the best place for him with a warm blanket around him. After we took a drive around Stanley park and over the bridge to North Vancouver.

Home! October 13,2008

It has been quite some time since I updated and I do apologize for that. I have been in a photo slump hopefully I have reenergized and will be sharing a bit more.

We had the pleasure of going to Calgary to visit some friends. Darren had a ground school class so we made the most of the trip. We all had a marvelous time with our friends and appreciated their hospitality and warmth during our stay. I had have a little more inspiration as Dan also has a passion for photography and was kind enough to take me to The Camera Store. It was fabulous and very exciting. Sam had a hoot as their son was kind enough to play and share his toys. I also had the honor of going for a facial at SKOAH, as it turns out Jodi works their and treated me to the best thing since sliced bread. It was an amazing experience and I would encourage anyone who is either in Calgary or Vancouver to look into their services.

Thank you again to our friends and we look forward to seeing you soon too!

Also wanted to mention that I actually did not take my camera with me to Calgary(I know I was shocked too) so these pictures were taken by Dan and Jodi. Thank you!
