Home sweet home


After our little whirlwind trip out west...we're back home.

Just on time to rescue the garden from towering weeds, and enjoy fresh strawberries...
but more importantly, back to the faces that bring us so much joy :)

We decided not to stop on the last leg of our trip and made it home at about 2 a.m....
figuring no one would be expecting us home until later the next day, we'd have a good chance to sleep in, nice and cozy in our own bed!

Well, we didn't really sleep in much as we heard little voices on the front porch.
Grampa got up and ran to the door to swing it open...me following as quickly as I could so as not to miss out on the happy squealing and little bear hugs! What a way to wake up!!

Anyway, hopefully I can report more on the highlights, but for now...it's time to get some work done...much to do!

some of your pics look familiar. Were some of these taken in or around Kelowna?

Sheila...the one picture where we're on a deck is by Noxx (?spelling) mountain, overlooking Kelowna. I envisioned doing a zip line crossing there and wondered if that's what Whistler was going to be like. I slightly underestimated!

Knox Mountain. I was there once when I lived in Kelowna.

That was a quick trip for you guys! I saw the zip line pics! Looked like a lot of fun!

Hey Anneliese...how come we didn't see you there? :)
It always took courage to step off the platform, but the ride was pretty cool!
Maybe we'll try the "Eagle's Nest" run one day?! Maybe not..I got grandchildren who need me! :)
