Ahh, quelle belle ville.  Our stay in Montreal has been really great.  It started out by arriving at the Auberge Les Bons Matins, where we were to spend the first two nights of our stay.  These are also the only two nights where we are not staying with friends or family, and so we treated […]

The Travelling Annetts

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Another long hiatus, and many more details in our ever exciting lives… We returned safely from Orlando, tired but intact. It was my first -certainly not last- trip where I truly realized that travelling with children is all of a sudden not very relaxing. Well, there are relaxing moments, but it is definitely not restful. […]

STS-132, The Final Flight of Space Shuttle Atlantis

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Big breath in, big breath out.  The past three days have been a whirlwind of activity, non-stop inertia that carried us through to the launch and beyond.  So many firsts (and lasts) have been crammed into the past 65 or so hours that it is hard to sum up.  It was our first flight with […]

Alot has happened…

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

… since Harry’s post spreading the news that our little one has become a biped. Over the past couple of weeks Sophie has really been getting the hang of walking, now she’s upright most of the time. She even ran across the room yesterday, our fearless one! One of the reasons we’ve been incommunicado is […]

Camping at Twin Lakes

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

This past weekend we went on our first camping trip with the little one.  We went to a family favourite, highly recommended: Twin Lakes, near Winfield.  It was great, it’s a nice-sized place with mostly campers using tents.  Any RVs were of the smaller variety, with a few glaring exceptions.  We arrived Thursday and so […]

The New Year So Far

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Well, there seem to be so many little things to say that I don’t quite know where to start.  Last weekend we packed up the family and took a trip up North to do some visiting.  Everything that could be planned was planned fairly well, though that one thing that can never be counted on […]

Back from B.C.

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Well the trip to the Lower Mainland went really well. Sophie traveled well and impressed everyone wherever she went, even strangers walking by on the street. We got to see even more people than we’d hoped by including a trip to Tofino, where we stayed with Monica (cousin Rod’s wife) and had dinner with her […]

Fall Urges

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Most people spring clean, but I seem to really be getting the urge to purge this fall.  Everywhere I look there are so many things I would like to see get done.  True, it’s always been that way, but maybe it’s harder to take because there is a little one to look after so I […]
