Hiking Date

On Thursday morning, Gary and I got out for a hike. Yippee!!! I am feeling fabulous as I have somehow managed to get within 4 pounds of my pre-Kai/marriage weight (all together I have lost 16.5 lbs since Koen was 2 months old)! I find that just losing those 16 pounds allows me to move so much better and all my old clothes fit wonderfully. Anyway, so we did a `hike' around Mike Lake at Golden Ears Park. It's really just a 30 minute walk (without kids!) around a lake. I wanted to work up a sweat so we then did another trail called `Incline Trail' which was just that. Got a nice sweat going and it felt good!

We live in such a beautiful province. I have travelled all over Canada and the US and I would say that nothing beats BC. Maybe because it's home, but seriously, it's beauty is unmatched.

Gary and I had lots of time to just talk together and even hold hands. It's been a while since we've walked and not had to answer a billion questions from our wonderful 3 year old super question asker. Gary heads back to work on Monday....we'll see how it goes!


  1. awesome! lucky you!

  2. well done! I really like the picture of you guys on the dock, great shot!

  3. ooooh...holding hands! what a novelty, hey? :)
    looks so beautiful there!

  4. A date? Going for a lover's stroll, holding hands surrounded by the glory and beauty of nature? Ah, c'est l'amore. L'amour est tout vous avez besoin. N'oubliez pas.

  5. Those photos are amazing. I agree. BC is GORGEOUS. Wish we could live there. Glad you and Gary got some time together.
