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.

Thank you for being such great pets!
Our pets had become very ill. Our girls made a difficult decision and stood by it with strength. We are proud of you Emily and Maddie.

Banner painting 2014

February22

It’s that time of year again. The girls and I head down to the Visual Arts Centre and create colourful banners for our community. In the spring, these banners will be hung on the light standards above the streets of Revelstoke. The girls really enjoy this project and eagerly look forward to spotting their banners each time we pass by.

This year I was asked to paint a banner for one of the local heli-ski lodges:

Snow!

February20

As most of you know, we live in one of the snowiest places in Canada. I love beautiful newly-fallen snow, blanketing everything. It is so peaceful in our quiet neighbourhood.

There’s lots of little things to put together in our house. The girls celebrated the arrival of their new mattresses by beautifully making up their beds with the colourful quilts made by their Nonna.

Skiing above the clouds

January15

Most of the winter, Revelstoke sits under the valley clouds. While somewhat depressing to some, the opportunity is there to ride the gondola high up above the clouds to the brilliant sunshine.

It’s always fun skiing with your buddies, and fun for dads too.
