Skiing at Sun Peaks BC

My sister and I drove up to Sun Peaks today to try our luck at skiing. I used to live on the hill when I was young but I haven't skied in over 10 yrs and Renee skied once last year but it had been awhile before that for her as well. We had such a great day. Alot of laughs and only got lost on the mountain once. We made it up to approx. 6000 feet and the scenery up there was amazing. The trees were covered in snow in a way that you could only see at such high elevation. The weather was great, the pizza was yummy and the adventure was one will do over again and again. The village is beautiful and something I used to dream about seeing and now it's only a hop skip and a jump away.
After my legs were close to falling off we decide it was time to call it a day. We bring all our gear back, grab a coffee and chocolate and walk over to the truck...only to not have a truck there to get into. Yep the truck was gone. I start to hyperventilate and panic all the while Ren is saying "don't worry we'll find it!!" I was like "how can we find it, it doesn't just walk away" She was laughing out of nervousness and I was trying to breath. We walk over to the Service counter and I have a seat as i'm thinking, how the heck do I tell Chris our truck is stolen and how far we are from home. I hear my sister in the background "we think my sister's car got stolen" and then "what kind of vehicle" "Ford Edge" "oh, that truck was moved to the compound as it was in the way" how it was in the way we are still not sure as there was another vehicle parked in our spot, but yep, they towed my truck to a compound and scared the crap out of us. So I catch my breath, learn to breath again and then laugh with my sister about it all the way to the truck. What a way to end such a great day. I can't wait to do it again.

The view was breath taking

Had so much fun with you today. I love you and our time we spend together, it's never a dull moment but always a great time. Looking forward to more days together. xo

Gift from Matante Ren and family

I have been looking the "perfect" lamp for Q's room for over 2 yrs and could never find one that was within budget so I figured I wouldn't have one. Well to my surprise my sister was in Vancouver last week and found the "perfect" one at Pottery Barns for Kids and purchased it for me. I was so surprise and happy when I saw it. It's exactly what I was looking for and the room is officially complete.
Thanks again Matante Ren, we all love it and can't wait to use it.
