Birthday (again?) weekend

A mostly uneventful weekend... kids and I stayed up late Friday night watching movies, Hunter went to gymnastics Saturday morning but Hayley was still not feeling well. She and I spent the morning together then had lunch and joined Hunter at Granny's for the afternoon. I cooked a big dinner for us Saturday night and we played all Sunday morning and also put up the Christmas tree. Jenn came home early afternoon acting very suspiciously. At about 2 people started arriving for a surprise birthday party for me. It was a very nice affair with far too much food; and a very unexpected end to the weekend. Hopefully some other pictures tomorrow...I am off to bed!

Winter has arrived!

Yes, a chilly 19C this morning and yesterday. Airconditioners were turned off and Hayley even put on a sweater! The usual activities on Saturday morning, then visits with Granny & Grandaddy, Uncle Gary and Family, then off to the Trial of the Pirates (Uncle Darvin was found "not guilty") and fireworks display. Sunday we never left the house and relaxed with a mixture of company throughout the day. Pics are kids painted for North Side District Day and going off to school on this chilly Monday morning!

The Party

So far only one picture that can be posted... Gladys and me dancing at Karaoke night, Little Cayman Beach Resort. Yes, this is what I look like wasted, not a frequent occurence and you probably won't see it again! But it was fun at the time. And if one must overindulge what better place to do so???

Little Cayman 1

Great weekend in Little Cayman but went from the airport to work and got home late. Got an aerial tour of the Sister Islands for my birthday and spent lots of time on the water. More pictures and accounts of the trip and pictures of the Birthday Party later after they have been carefully screened! It was not a pretty sight!

Buried Treasure

Our neighbors invited us over to help them find their lost treasure. It had been marked by a tree which was unfortunately blown away in Hurricane Ivan. So with the metal detector we found the treasure in a jiffy! But typical of pirates and treasure there was a little disagreement as to how the loot would be shared so smiles were scarce for a bit... I worked at the Mission House project all day and include a picture of how it is coming along. Off to Little Cayman tomorrow for the weekend. Can't wait!

Sunday afternoon

Yes, another picture of a sunny day at Rum Point. But it was very windy and the current was flowing like a river so everyone got a good workout just staying by the boat. To rough in the Western parts of the North Sound to look for conchs and they are protected by the marine park system on the Eastern side. So they were safe today! The kids had a blast with the company of Katherine and Whitney and were also joined by some of the Soto girls. Also you may recognize Rene in the picture; he's here for 10 days. Off to Little Cayman on Friday so we will take it easy till then!

Sunday November 5, 2006

Breezy, warm Sunday morning, and after a walk with Rex we played in the sandpile and got thoroughly filthy! Will give Rex a quick bath then out on the boat for a while (conch season has opened). We saw pictures of snow in Vernon compliments of Tanya... so it seems winter has finally arrived in the Okanagan. And here too. Brisk northeasterly winds are bringing our temperatures down into the mid 80'sF and signalling an early end to a thankfully uneventful hurricane season.
