Long time · May 20, 09:53 AM


It sure has been a long time since my last post. Dylan’s first birthday has come and gone (not without festivities!), I have returned to work, and we are getting ready to move house!

Dylan is growing so fast, and is turning into quite a little goofball; a pretty funny little guy. He will soon be walking, he has almost all of his teeth, he’s saying some pretty cute words, and he really likes throwing his little ball back and forth with us. He loves the little boy at his daycare, which makes me feel a lot better about going back to work, even if it is only 3 days a week.

Dylan’s new album

Aaron is just entering a bad few months of long shifts and lots of call, all through the summer, of course. But summer is here :D What a beautiful weekend! Dylan and I headed to Seattle (pictures coming soon), and had a wonderful day at the beach.
Jules and I got to see a movie, with Margaret and her friend Cheli. We saw What Happens in Vegas, silly but very very funny.

So Aaron has decided to apply to Respirology as his sub-specialty. For those of you who don’t know…YES he does have to go through another whole round of applications, interviews and potential uprooting. Will it ever end? Only three more years :o
The process starts this fall. Wish him luck!

We are also getting ready to move into our new place (renting) at the end of the month. I was so sad to have to move out of our current place with the spectacular view, but in exchange we get to move into a beautiful neighbourhood, a nicer place and we have outside space!!! Yippeee. I’m looking forward to moving out of condoland.

Ready for summer and sand between my toes.

Ahhh Maui · Mar 9, 05:02 PM


We just returned from a fabulous week in Maui. It was more than I was expecting and we had a wonderful time. There were humpback whales jumping in the ocean right off the beach where we were staying, the weather was perfect and the water was warm but refreshing, and there was so much to see. It was a great holiday.

Here is a link to my album of
photos from Hawaii


I sure did miss my little guy though. He’s almost one, I can’t believe it. Where did the time go. This month I will be madly trying to get daycare together and going on a road trip in our shiny new VW passat wagon (ours is dark blue). I’m picking it up this week and I’m soooo excited. Farewell Hyundai, you’ve treated us well.

Just came back from another great dinner at Colin and Kelsey’s. She’s such a great cook. Dylan and Brimley get along very well.
I’m off to bed!

Starbucks explosion · Feb 13, 09:26 AM
















Wow. A huge explosion destroyed the Starbucks and neighbouring businesses a block away from our apartment last night. I woke up at about 2:30am to a big boom and within minutes there were a ton of fire trucks roaring into our neighbourhood…which got me out of bed. I went to the living room and saw smoke billowing up across the street from the London Drugs. It was a few hours before I learned what had actually happened. Apparently a huge blast blew up the Starbucks, Taco del Mar and some other stores, as well as spraying glass across six lanes of Broadway street and blowing out windows at London Drugs and a window at the Holiday Inn down the block. Dylan and I went down to check out the damage and take some pictures this morning. It was insane. Aside from the glass and carnage the scene was crawling with police and the media frenzy and their satellite trucks behind miles of police tape. Crazy.

Here is a link to my album of
photos from the explosion

In other news, my baby is 10 months old today. It’s going way too fast. He just started crawling on Saturday. He’s still a little wobbly but it’s adorable watching his little bum waddle down the hall, or to turn around and see him happily following me. He makes us very happy.

Whoa · Jan 29, 06:07 AM

A new era in eating has begun. No he didn’t kill a small animal with his teeth…he just had an itchy nose.
