Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our New (To Us) rPod 182g (August 5, 2014)

Funny, just realised that I posted a similar Throwback Thursday post almost a year ago to the day. ¬†Must be mid-summer when I realise how glad I am that we bought our rPod! ūüôā Anyhow, above is a picture of Shea as she went with my parents to pick up our rPod three summers ago […]

Saturday Snap – Happy Canada Day!

End of Year Track Meet

One of the things that seems like a downside of my current job at a branch is that I have to do some evening and weekend work. But sometimes that turns out to be an advantage. Because I worked this past weekend, I had Monday and Tuesday off. ¬†And so I was able to go […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sk8r Boi (April 2012)

10 Advantages of a Seasonal Camping Site

I didn’t post over the weekend as we were camping at our seasonal site at Echo Valley¬†Provincial Park. We’ve had our camper for three years¬†(two full summers since we bought it in August of our first year) but so far, we’ve only done quick hit trips – a week here, a weekend there. Shea’s folks […]
