In the forest again

September21

Today I was able to try out a trail rider from Adaptive Adventures Kelowna. It was really great to get out on a forest trail again!

Last July we had an event where well-wishers could decorate plywood for our house. It’s now up and a permanent part of our house!

Holiday weekend

It’s the end of summer holidays, so we chilled out at Mara Lake. We are very fortunate and thankful to be able to visit our friends’ cabin.

Bikefest!

August10

Every August, Revelstoke holds Bikefest, a celebration of all things biking. The girls dressed up their bikes and participated in their first bike race ever, the downtown criterium. It comprises of a 2km sprint around a few city blocks several times. This year it was made a little tougher by the 33 degree temps that day, but they persevered.
Way to go Emily and Maddie!!!

Thank you grandparents for child support, thanks Al for the festival support, and thank you rain for lowering fire hazard and giving Simon a few days off!

Dig, dig, dig.

SAND, and lots of it!!

In downtown Revy, as you can see, it is deep, deep sand under all the houses. It makes for very sturdy foundations (ours; 80+ years old and no cracks) but tough for digging. One scoop out, half falls back in. So the foundation pit is pretty big considering the addition extends only 6′ from the house on the side. All is going smoothly and more cement is coming soon.
