Hello Everyone! It’s been a while. Lots of things have happened but at the same time, not too much has changed. The kids are getting bigger. But let’s jump back a bit. Last summer was relatively uneventful. We held a couple FM96 Basement/Backyard BBQ parties, our Annual BBQ & Poker Night, and did a day-trip to Toronto to see a Jays game. Fall brought us to Alex’s 9th birthday (Christ…double digits this year…), we decorated our house for Halloween and had 150 kids come by to score some candy and be scared. Hoping to out-do ourselves this year. December saw our one-year anniversary of being in the house as well as our second Christmas in the house. Because of the weather in December we made the decision to put on a new steel roof. That should be starting any day now hopefully. Opened up the pool early again in hopes of being able to use it for Ryan’s birthday party which was this past weekend. And yep, we did.
Along the way, we all started doing rock climbing and bouldering. Nikki & Ryan really took to it while Alex & I are more casual. Earlier this month Nikki took part in the Climb for Cancer 2015 event held at Grand River Rocks in Kitchener. Her, Jackie, Mike & Celeste formed a team. Together they raised over $800 and climbed over 5,500 feet in four hours. Yep, over a mile! There’s a short video of one of Nikki’s climbs here.
We also furthered our addiction to boardgames, vastly growing our collection. We’re now hosting one or two boardgaming nights each month where you guys* are more than welcome to come over, hang out, and play some fun games with us.
So as I mentioned, I really have designs on writing more on here. I’ll hopefully get some links up soon of some of the pics from the past year. There aren’t a lot however.
