Yes, every now and again, I actually aim my camera at people and not towards nature. OK, not that my parents aren’t natural, but…. ….sheesh, you get the idea!! My family was just out in Kelowna last week visiting a bunch of relatives. You gotta love it when you have you’ve got to go to Kelowna only because you have relatives there! Nice excuse to travel to a wonderful part of Canada. Not to mention the drive through the mountains to get there.



My dad absolutely loves doing puzzles! The stack he has in the garage amazes me. I can sit and work on one for short periods of time, but there is no way I can handle a 1000 piece one from start to finish. He did get some help on this one from my wife and two boys as well as one of my aunts and uncles. They circled the table and worked feverishly and finished in about three hours or so.




I don’t think mom helped on this puzzle at all, but, talk kitchen design with my wife and sister-in-law, you bet!


Of course time was taken to sit and visit too. It wasn’t all fun and games! OK, here I go again, visiting was fun too, don’t get me wrong.

Like father, like son. My dad and brother Brad.
