|Easton is checking out the progress.|
|Brie was so taken with seeing her mom on the iPad, calling from Edmonton, this past Tuesday.|
|Easton trying out our nearby bicycle obstacle course.|
|It took little time before he felt confident to tackle the long and arduous bicycle boardwalk.|
|Sitting by the pond on the finished deck surface.|
|Although ready to work, it is tough to get anything accomplished when a five month old and a two year old call out for some one on one time.|
|One angle of the completed deck surface.|
Although we thought the surface would be hot when exposed to strong sun rays, it proves to be quite easy to walk on while bare footed. Great!
|The surface has not been washed but, once that happens, the dust covered boards will brighten up considerably.|
|All exposed pressure treated wood skirting will be covered with 1/2" X 12" composite boards. The entire deck and skirting will be completely maintenance free, other than the occasional wash with a brush and water hose.|
|The privacy pergolas will be built and the final step will be to plant a complete cedar hedge behind the pergola and also on the opposite side of the yard where I previously built a large cedar hedge planter.|
|Arriving at the Sandpiper Golf Resort - Rowena's Inn - Harrison Mills.|
|We enjoyed lunch at the famous Rowena's Inn on the Harrison River.|

|The view from our outdoor courtyard lunch table.|
|We took a long walk around the Rowena's Inn grounds|
|Mom is getting some special time with her two kids following two nights away in Edmonton, Alberta.|
|Brie was enamored to see her mom.....!|
A couple of hours following pick up at the airport, Ginette and her two kids left for their Langley City home. They have to prepare for a one week trip at the family cottage at Barriere Lake - north of Kamloops, BC. We are joining them there (for about four days or so). Jeanette and I plan to motorcycle up there; a five hour ride; leaving tomorrow morning. A nice surprise will be waiting for us when we arrive. Our son Deni, his wife Courtney and their seven month old baby boy, Owen, will be joining us there too. We are looking forward to that family time together.
With no internet service and no cell phone service, we will be out of touch till we return home.
And that has been our canvas these past several days. Life is good!
Thanks for dropping by.
