In Kelowna, BC with my wife

Here is the view in West Kelowna out for a jog in the morning near our hotel.

Natalia and I really enjoy the restaurant at the Quail's Gate winery. It turns out that the PM was here the night
before which was why we couldn't get a reservation. Silly Stephen.


Full size
This is at a beachside park in Kelowna. I liked the teacher next to the apple photo.


Full size
I took Natalia up to the Sparkling Hills Resort in Vernon since she likes sparkly things. This is the gift shop.


Full size
Check out the crystal embedded into the stairwell. Pretty fancy schmancy.


Full size
Here is Natalia looking beautiful and pregnant at the dock in Vernon on Kalamalka Lake.


Full size
Natalia REALLY liked this farm, and not just for the treats (although mostly for the treats).

Shockingly, Natalia found a no-sugar treat.

In Saskatoon

Some rebuilding work going on in Saskatoon on Main St.

Pretty quick demo and rebuild on this property.

The duplex plan for this site.


Full size
Erik and Carl out for drinks on Broadway in Saskatoon.


Full size
Sometime throughout the course of the night I wound up finding a hot dog vendor. Looks like some 'soakage' to me!


Full size
Erik hosted Carl, Benny, Earl, and I for dinner. We cooked up steak for appies, lobster for dinner, and steak for
dessert, along with some pretty terrific twice baked potatoes from Benny.


Full size
Erik REALLY enjoyed having live lobsters to play with.


Full size
The appetizer steaks.

How great does this look?

Look how yummy they look!

Erik and I were excited about our upcoming feed.


Full size
I took in a golf event in Victoria for a customer. Check out the very tame deer on the course.


Full size
This was Carl's first visit to the Glenbow Ranch Prov Park for a hike. We're both trying to keep each other active
so that we don't get fat and die.

In Portland, visiting


Full size
One of the most fun hardware stores in the world is Hippo Hardware in Portland. Check out the hippos!


Full size
I loved this sign inside a bidet at Hippo Hardware.

Our next stop was a place Natalia had seen on the Food Channel - Otto's Sausage Kitchen!

Natalia enjoys her sausage and I'm enjoying my beer and sausage.

Natalia's favourite store in Portland is Fred Meyer.

Paul and I did some repair work to fit some shelves into his kegerator.

Here is Allison looking crazy as she shows us a good book to buy.


Full size
Our friends in Portland had a little shower for Natalia and got her this sweet diaper bag. Pretty high end ladies!

The Crystal Hotel in Portland is a neat place to stay. We used the pools downstairs and the downtown location
for a nice stay.

In Cochrane, AB

The view from the intersection near our house one morning.

We had some fog in the Bow Valley on this morning and I thought the view was great.
