What we've been up to

I'm back...sort of. I don't know if anyone is still visiting since it's been a few months.  I realized the last few weeks that I need somewhere to release my ramblings so here I am.

So, this past summer (if you want to call it that since the weather was horrible) we had a visit from Shawn's cousins.  They came during Stampede...not the best time to come if you want to give someone a good impression of the city.  But that's a story for another day.  Anyways, they came to visit and we had a lovely time with them.  It's always nice to have visitors from home come see us (hint, hint).

We went away twice as well.  Once out east to Nova Scotia and Price Edward Island.  We were fortunate enough to have booked our vacation at the same time as 3D's so we finally got to meet Miss D.  What an absolute peanut!  She's one of the sweetest kids I've met.

We were lucky enough to see Red Sand and her family.  We got to meet her boys and talk about their experience with their little guys.

We had a lovely time in PEI!  I told Shawn that one day in the future I would like to go back to PEI for a longer visit.  Two days was not enough to see such a beautiful island.

Our other trip was back home.  We were lucky enough to witness our friends as they took their marriage vows.  It was such a lovely ceremony and reception.  It was made even better by the fact we got to see our other friends! Two celebrations in one day.

Of course we have Jinx as well that's keeping us on our toes as always.  She's so big and getting cuter every day.  At least I think so.

Honestly, who can say no to a face like this?

Along with some of my work colleagues, we were able to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation with the Big Bike Challenge.  Together, we were able to raise just over $7,000, the most in our company's history.  That makes me happy.  If it helps save one life, the begging will be worth it.

That's it for now.  I'll be back soon.  Hopefully.

I miss you, too!!! Please come back to the blog world!!
It was amazing to see you this summer and it looks as though you really made the most of the rest of the summer too!
I have an idea...
We should rent a cottage next summer in PEI!! Joel would DIE to spend more time with his buddy Shawn.

Welcome back. I'm glad you had some great times with family and friends even though the warm weather didn't always cooperate.
