Christmas 2016

We had an awesome time spending Christmas out at Tchesinkut Lake. Other than the lake being open it really felt like a winter wonderland this year. Also, we’re all full. Very full :)

Whistler

Last weekend we headed to Whistler, BC for a quick family vacation. We hiked every day. What a great place to get outside.

We started by going across the Peak to Peak gondola and hiking up the Blackcomb side.FrancesWhistlerAPFT

On our last full day we hiked the Joffre Lakes trail. It was excellent.

What an amazing province we live in.

Winter is here. Sort of.

We spent the weekend in Smithers to see the end of the first annual Smithers Festival of Trees and to attend our staff party. We got to take a nice walk in the snow. Sadly, as we left it was raining. This morning in Prince George we’ve got nice fresh snow and now it’s warming up and melting too. Hopefully we’ll have some snow that sticks around for Christmas.

It’s been a little quiet around here. We’re planning on doing a photo update on the house soon. It’s amazing how long it takes to get all the little things done :)

For now, this is one reason we appreciate this place so much.

Christmas at Tchesinkut

We’ve been having a great time at Tchesinkut Lake for Christmas. It was really nice spending it with my parents and the Olesiuks. We even got some snow. We’ve all eaten too much and had a lot of fun together.
