We are lucky kids…

Les you always put others first, you really are a true selfless shirt off your back kinda person and anyone who knows you would agree. You’re a great mother, daughter and wife and an inspiration to myself and so many others. Thanks for always being there for me, you are not only my sister but one of my best friends. I love you and am proud of you.

Let’s all take a minute and wish my sister a very happy day!!


Happy Birthday Carolina

January 12, 2011

I’ve been playing a little catch up since returning from my holidays. Two very important people in my life celebrated their birthdays recently and I haven’t had a chance to post their birthday blogs.

Carolina’s birthday was January 5th. Carol is one of my favourite people on the planet and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about her.

She was a cute little girl...

...that became a beautiful woman.

She is married to a great guy...

...and together they have produced two more of my favourite people.

Once and awhile she gets a collo piegato.

She has a bit of a wild side.

This is how she looked pregnant.

She's an amazing hostess and cook.

She enjoys relaxing at the cabin on the lake...

Or taking in some rays on the beach.

...or taking a walk on the beach.

A good looking familia.

She is always smiling.

Carol poses with a forehead!

Carol is fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She is tough and will punch you in your eye if you disrespect her beloved Canucks! She loves the summer and gardening and BBQ’s with friends.

Carol you are one of those rare people in life that I feel I can truly be myself around (I’m sure more than you’d like). I am always amazed by your seemingly endless energy and supermomness! You are selfless and always put your family and friends first. You have gone above and beyond for me through thick and thin and I love you.

Happy Birthday Bella!

I made this stop motion video up at my friends float cabin on Powell Lake. The smudge in the upper left corner around the 17 second mark is a bat flying by.

Wishing I was still on it.

All Day In the Car

June 21, 2010

I made a this stop motion movie of my drive up to Powell River this past weekend. I took one photo every ten seconds for the entire drive between Langdale and Earls Cove then created the movie in Quicktime at 6 frames per second. The song I choose to go along with the movie called “All Day In the Car” explains driving to PR perfectly. Watch it on the HD setting if your computer allows.

Check back soon for the drive home.
