Running and visiting

We spent a great weekend with the Breedvelds. Frances and Carolyne ran a half marathon and the rest of us chased kids and enjoyed the excellent weather.

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.

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.

Happy Birthday from Maui

We celebrated Frances’ and Hannah’s birthdays at RuthsChris last night. What a great dinner. Pretty great that our September birthday girls got to have their birthday dinners on Maui.

The Exchamsiks River

Josh and I had the pleasure of joining my Mom & Dad, my sister’s family and my cousin Mike and his family for a great time of fishing and exploring at the beginning of this week. We camped and fished on the Skeena River. A highlight for me was a jet boat ride up the Exchamsiks River. I posted a few photos here: Exchamsiks River Provincial Park.
