Oh Yes, I Did!!

Yes, I know that we are having another girl and I have bins of clothes in the garage. And yes, I know that I'm only halfway (plus a tad) through this pregnancy. But you know, this little girl needed a new dress!! JC Penney had this absolutely adorable girly dress on sale for $10 today!! So this is her first outfit that is just for her and I LOVE IT!!!!

Trip Home From Whistler

On the way up to Whistler, we were driving in the dark and could tell that we were passing beautiful scenery but could barely see it! We left early from the village so that we could take our time coming home and stop at as many places as we wanted. Oh my, it was beautiful!!!! Here are just a very few pictures out of all that we took.

This was my view a lot as Garth tried to get lots of perfect shots!!

And no visit to Canada is complete without a stop at Tim Hortons! :)

Birthday Trip To Whistler

For my birthday, Garth whisked me away to Whistler for the weekend. Some very dear friends kept our children. It was a very nice, relaxing weekend and I'm very thankful that we were able to go. Since the ski hills weren't quite open yet for the season, we had planned to go snowmobiling or ATVing, but they wouldn't let me go since I was pregnant! We settled for a jeep tour up onto the mountain (altitude of just over 6000 feet). The weather was absolutely perfect so that we could see the neighboring mountains and the village below. The tour guide had been working for this company for ~7 years; he was quite knowledgeable, answered all of our questions, and made it really interesting.

On one of the stops up the mountain (while the guide was putting the chains on our tires), we met a guy snowboarding down. We struck up a conversation with him and asked how he got up the mountain since the lifts weren't open. He had hiked 3 1/2 hours up to the peak with all of his gear and then was boarding down. Talk about perseverance! That was one long hike for such a quick trip down. He was exhausted and happy to stop for a break to talk to us!
