Day 8

Well, Day Eight is here...Seattle is great...but I think I am pretty much ready to come home. You know, I always say I would like to move back to the city again for the convenience and busyness. But after "living" in the heart of an urban area for over a week, I think I will take that back. I love small town, and I love Saskatchewan. I can't wait to come home! Miss you, everyone! Three more sleeps... :)

I saw a starfish up close and personal for the first time today. They are sooooooo cool! I didn't realize how colorful or BIG they were!! My kids were amazed. Here's a pic of Renee seeing a huge pink starfish...I love the look on her face! LOL

We are here!

Wow...Comox/Courtenay is beautiful. And guess what?


There aren't even screens on the windows and doors. Nothing like the monster, man-eating blood-sucking swarms we have at home. I was outside all day yesterday...without bug spray. And how many bites did I get?? None. Zero. Zilch. Nothing. This is way too cool.

Anyhoo...we are in Comox for a few days for the reunion. Lots of Lepages here right now! Meeting lots of people, doing lots of talking. It's all good. But I miss my mom. LOL I am such a suck.

Here are some pics I took over the last couple of days. TFL!

Almost here!

What's almost here?? Lots of things!
Our trip to Comox/Seattle is just around the corner. I can hardly wait! I think I have to borrow my mom's extra memory cards to put photos on, because believe me, I cannot wait for the photo ops that I am going to have!

You know you are a scrapbooker when you pack your childrens' suitcases, taking into consideration colour combinations of their outfits combined with mountain, forest, and ocean scenery so that all will look fantastic when you go to scrap the layouts later! LOL

News from Just Cre8! The Just Cre8 August kit is fabulous! Lots of goodies to play with! I can't show you now, but I can tell you that there are hints to be seen at the Just Cre8 blog, {motiv8}. Check it out! It will be revealed on the 15th.
