Summer in Review...



With school starting and fall sports schedules coming at me, I come to the realization....Summer is ending. Although our weather has been somewhat rainy and cloudy in the mornings it is still very muggy & mild. Usually by the afternoon the sun has come back out and is still pretty warm.  Not quite cold enough to put on our winter sweaters or coats, but wet enough to pull out our rain jackets and umbrellas. I figured this is a good time to look at our summer in review. We had as much fun as we could. One of our highlights was heading up to Whistler to enjoy some summer mountain activities. Summer in the mountain mean biking!! Instead of skis on the lift it's bikes, instead of bindings and poles in the ski racks, it's bikes. You see helmets, gloves and goggles.....but to keep out the dirt & dust coming down the slopes instead of ice and snow. The boys and Trevor took in one of the legendary mountain thrills, Zip lines! We saw alot of wildlife and a black bear just walking down the sidewalk near the village like he owned the place...so cute! We hit the Farmers market and the BBQ competition ~ YUMMMMY~
If you haven't had the chance to visit Whistler, BC you should defiantly make it one of your "things to do" you will not be disappointed!

Nikki--Wayne and I are up in Whistler right now checking out all your pics. It is raining really hard right now--so we ended up cancelling ziplining. We really wanted to do it, but think it would be better on a nice day. Wayne saw the pic of Trevor ziplining and his comment was "ohhh that looks painful". I cracked up. LOL. Love all the pics of your boys--they are so handsome and they pose like models. Paige is adorable and I love the bear picture--what a pose. All that is missing is a picture of you :-). Any ways, lovely job. Lisa
