Look what we did today...

Colin and I had so much fun! I was given a whale watching tour from a customer for a late Christmas tip and we finally used it today. They said it was the best day they've had all season. There are ninety resident whales that live in the Juan de Fuca Strait, and we saw all of them! Including the two week old baby. I was so overwhelmed when they popped up out of a deep dive only 20-30 meters away from our boat that I got a little misty eyed (that's the last three photos...I had to zoom out to get so many in one shot). It was a perfect afternoon. And to top it all off Colin was a joy today! That's a great day for mom!

I hope everyone else had a fantastic day too! :)

Sometimes I wish I had a video camera!

Chloe has this stick that she wants to bring into the house. She's standing at the deck door and puts the stick down so I keep getting up to open the screen and then she leans down and picks up the stick so I close the screen again. She's done it about 20 times so far.

So, I guess it's been a while since I updated my blog. Adam is doing way better. He had a little "run in" with something on Saturday and his collar bone is a little more sore than it had been, but his left arm is doing much better. He's used to how much he can use his arms now so that's easier. And he's driving again.

We went to Parksville a week ago and had a blast. The kids played on the beach and the water park and we went mini golfing and went in bumper boats (where I somehow ended up being the target for the water guns). Here's some photos from that trip.

This Saturday I think we are going to try to go to Saltspring. Last weekend we ended up staying up too late so we didn't make it, but hopefully we will this week. They have an awesome market there with all local artists. I could easily live over there. Canada Post doesn't have any employees over there though...well, maybe one or two, but not too many.

And speaking of Canada Post...I started my new mail route yesterday. I drive a truck now. Like the ones that deliver parcels (big...with the sliding doors). It's weird to be driving such a big truck. Maybe one day I'll see if I can take a photo of my car next to it so I can see the difference. So I've had two long days at work (yesterday was worse than today) but I'm sure in the next couple of weeks I'll have it down pat (I hope anyway!).

Our girls weekend was FANTASTIC! Jenn and Karen are SO inspiring! I loved every minute I spent with them. Karen can put together an amazing layout in no time at all and have it look like she spent forever on it and Jenn is just plain amazing! She is so inspiring! I had a great time and finally convinced them to go to the tunnels to take photos. They are of course on my camera at home and I'm at Adam's helping him out this week so I'll post some as soon as I get home.

So if I don't post much for the next week it's because I'm busy helping Adam. And he's going to help me add a banner to my blog. :)

Have a great week!
