Hike Numero Uno

His `Cheese!' face

Today Gary and I went on a short hike. We dropped Kai off at gramma's house (with all the cousins there too!) and then we head out to Cultus Lake. We did a short-ish hike called `Teapot Hill' but I think it was more than a hill. It was about 1.5 hours and my heart rate went up pretty fast:) Afterwards, we had a picnic lunch at the beach and then went to the mall to buy myself some nice new earrings. I had a pair of small, white gold hoops with diamonds that Gary bought me for Christmas 2007 and I lost them in Mexico. They were the nicest earrings I have ever had and I just though that if I lost them, then I didn't deserve new ones. Well, after 1/2 a year, I changed my mind. I finally decided I would really like another pair of earrings that I can just wear all the time without having to take them out each night, so I splurged. We also got Purdy's Chocolate ice cream bars...yum yum! Great morning with just Gary and I, we need to do that more often. Kai was def. NOT ready to leave gramma's as he was having way too much fun. I'm glad he loves it there so much!
Uh, this waist strap doesn't go where it is supposed to!

Terrible shot at the top...trying to get us and the lake way down there:)

Gary made the best dinner ever...mashed potatoes with bbq chicken covered in cheese, bacon and guacamole:).


  1. Heya;
    Are your iron stores in need of a boost? That can cause pg women to get short of breath, as I learned at my last appointment!!
    Glad you had fun!
