Treasure Hunting

The weather today was AMAZING. It was so good to wear sunglasses and see our shadows. We skipped church as Koen still has a cold so it would've just been one of us taking Kai. We went to walk the Shoreline Trail in Port Moody. I love it and Gary had never been! I would love to run there, bike there....such a great place.
We found two geocaches which Gary and Kai love. I do enjoy it, as long as we actually find it. There were some good ones today, I love the genius ways of hiding treasures!
The sun was deceiving as it was super chilly but the boys just ran and ran so they stayed warm. I love family days. So good to have Gary home the past two days! To go for walks as a family, to have Gary play tons of Chutes and Ladders with Kai, for Gary and Kai to go biking so I can work for a bit...just so nice.

I actually have a family session at this park next week so I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully it's a day just like today.

I know spring break is seven weeks away but I am soooooooooooo looking forward to it. No work, just hang out with the family and maybe read a bit too! I finished the Hunger Games trilogy and it was so good.

Oh, I'll finish with a story. I have started taking melatonin to sleep at night and noticed that I would wake up abruptly at 5am and really have to pee. Totally weird and I attributed it to the melatonin. Realized this morning at 5am that it's because our neighbours just got a puppy who cries to go outside and pee at 5am. In my sleep, I was hearing `Go pee!' and it woke me up and made me have to go:)

Have a wonderful week.
Love, Louise


  1. Looks like a nice family outing! We had sunny skies yesterday too, but with lots of snow underfoot. This morning is is -20!

  2. We may have to go for a family treasure hunt there too :)

  3. That's funny about the puppy and waking you up! Glad that Gary got to spend some time with the kids. I am always thankful when Johnny is home on the weekends...not this one though! :(

  4. haha! don't tell Gary. He could whisper all sorts of things in your ear while you're sleeping!
