Mother's Day Weekend

Mother's day weekend this year was AWESOME!!! Shae came and stayed overnight, Friday night and then her Mom picked her up as well as Claire and went shopping at the West Edmonton Mall. Daniel, Carlam and I got to cut up some wood. I even got to use my chainsaw, but it was a little scary and was happy to load the trailer and stack the wood with Daniel while Carlam worked the saw.

The following are pics taken at Greenland with the new camera.

Daniel and Carlam goofing around.

them while they were eating breakfast!!

Happy Mother's Day to Me!

Trip to Seattle 2010

Hello! I think that it is great that I am just updating the crap out of my blog and you know who's still have Blanket Love as the latest update!!!! I am now up to April, yay me!!!
For the Easter long weekend, Carlam and I went to Seattle to visit Stephanie, Aaron and Matthew. Had a short, but great trip. Arrived late Thursday night, visited Vashon Island on our own on Friday, Took part in Matthew's 1st birthday party on Saturday, checked out Pike Place Market on Sunday and flew home Monday.
By the way, all pictures are courtesy of Carlam and Kathy. Always gotta give credit.
Matthew gets up much earlier than Carlam and I do. So,
this is what would come through our bedroom door
every morning when he heard us up. Could he be any cuter?

Carlam enjoying the view and wishing I would
bugger off with the camera!!

The cupcakes we all got to enjoy!

Friday Carlam and I headed to Vashon Island.
This was the tree to the left of the fairy dock.
For April and coming from snowy Alberta, it was just soooo green.
Could hardly stop looking at it.

In line to get on the fairy.

While just touring the Island, Carlam and I were discussing
our favourite birds. His is the Eagle and mine is any type of crane.
We come around the corner to the marina and Carlam says
"well, look at that" and there stood this lovely
Crane enjoying shore nibbles.

It was very blustery and rainy that day on Vashon.

There were a bunch of these weird chicken thingys
on a road on Vashon. Ran right across the road in front of the car.
They made a horrible noise too.

Friday night Steph was tired from work and finishing last
minute stuff for Matthew's part so, Carlam came with me
to DSW. These flowers were in the parking lot of the mall.

Sunday was spent at Pike Place Market

Heading home tired, but happy that we got to spend an amazing time
together in Seattle. Thanks for everything Steph and Aaron!
