|Easton loves to climb the big rock by the pond.|
|And grand papa doesn't mind climbing the big rock too.|
|Brie loves to play with rocks and water; often throwing rocks into the watering can.|
|From a distance, Easton can be seen on the top of the big pond rock.|
|When not playing outdoors, Brie enjoys the sun room. She loves to keep busy!|
And when a break away from indoor stuff loses its appeal, he likes to take some outdoor toys to the planter for some good old dirt works.
One fun thing both kids enjoy is to fill the little outdoor tub and then get seriously wet playing in and out of it. That is a fun thing to do on a hot day. And it keeps them interested and curious.
|Back from last Friday's golf round, Jeanette and I took Easton and Brie to the local urban forest.|
|Easton has a great time with his Stider bike.|
|And this large tree trunk root has now become a favourite to climb.|
|My little man enjoys spending time outdoors and he is sure quick to lend a hand to wash the dually.|
|Brie manages some alone time on the deck with Jeanette while Easton and I hang out on the front driveway.|
|More rocks for Brie to collect.....and to hide somewhere (likely in the watering can)|
Saturday called for great weather and we opted to head out into the Fraser Valley on our motorcycle. We ended up in Cultus Lake and then further into the Columbia Valley.
|Cultus Lake was busy with boaters and RVers.|
|A great place for family picnics.|
Jeanette was up for that. Once off the phone with sister Deb, who resides in Calgary, we suited up and rode out to Vancouver.

|The Olympic cauldron and the new Fox-TV FIFA headquarters for the international Womens' Soccer tournament slated for the weeks ahead.|
|Can you see the ships in the Vancouver Harbour?|
|Heading towards Kitsilano (a trendy shopping and restaurant section of Vancouver) we rode along this beautiful, Russian built Ural motorcycle|
IMZ Ural - Russian Sidecar Motorcycles (Click on the link for the URAL WEB site)
Personally speaking, I am not a fan of the Ural motorcycle but the woman riding it seemed thrilled as punch when we rode by and waved. I could not tell if her ride was a vintage Ural but it did look like it had seen a few miles.
