Emily and Maddie’s summer on the coast

August10

Similar to last summer, Emily spent two weeks with her cousins and family, while they vacationed on Hornby Island. It’s a pretty cushy gig. Here’s a few photos that were sent to me:


At the same time, Madeline spent a week with her grandparents in Vancouver, and went to an arts camp. Here’s a fun animation she created:

The following week she went up to Squamish to stay with Simon’s brother and family.

Ariana Grande

March24

For Christmas we gave the girls tickets to see their favourite singer, Ariana Grande. The accessible seats were sold out so I bought 3 so Simon could take them. Lucky for him, his cousin Cathy offered to make it a “girls night out” and took them to the concert. We joined 2 other Revelstoke families for a pre-show dinner and hype-up for the girls. By freak chance, the girls and their friends had seats 3 rows away from each other.

Right before the show:

Ready to go with Ariana shirts and kittycat headbands like the singer wears.

Spring Break

March20

We are very lucky and grateful to be able to visit our aunt and uncle’s house on Gabriola Island. It’s so great to get a dose of spring when there is still 5′ of snow on the ground in Revelstoke.

Family help

November21

We’ve had a number of visits from family members in Vancouver. The support we are getting from them and our fellow Revelstokians is amazing. Our family enjoyed the first lunch together in the house.

Christmas

To start off the Christmas season, Emily and Maddie made these Santa hat brownies for a local charity bake sale.

Over the holidays, we travelled to Vancouver too see our family. Actually, we managed to see every single member of the Hunt-Kerfoot clan except Simon’s mum in Australia, all 49 of them!!
There was a fairly large snowstorm in Vancouver, I was not impressed. I look forward to green grass and lush holly bushes there in the winter, not snow!

We did some crafts for fun.

We had a great time visiting with everyone. I feel very blessed to be a part of such a great family. We left the picture taking to others on this trip, so I have no more to add right now.

Vancouver Wedding

August26

We had one more wedding to go to this summer, Simons buddy Aaron and his beautiful bride Katrina. it was a really nice location at Lonsdale Quay.

They are both avid motorcyclists, that’s her engagement ring is on the left.

ALS Walk-a-thon

May26

I travelled to Vancouver for an ALS walk-a-thon which was held in Steveson. The weather turned out to be beautiful, a bluebird day, and the route of the walk was very scenic along the water’s edge overlooking Vancouver Island. There was a good turnout, possibly about 300 people. Pictured is the “warm-up exercises”.

The main reason I attended this event was that my step-sister, Sylvia, who was an Olympic athlete in freestyle skiing, presented the ALS Society of British Columbia with a check for $5000, on behalf of RBC. In this photo L to R are: Wendy from ALS BC, me, Sylvia, and Wally Buono, coach of the BC Lions and ALS BC spokesperson.

Thanks to the organizers, volunteers, Sylvia, and RBC for this event and donation which goes to support and research for persons with ALS.

While in Vancouver I had a chance to watch and meet some of Canada’s wheelchair basketball team. They were on a week-long training camp and I visited with my high-school friend, Brett, who is the team physiotherapist.
