Home Again!

Me and the Bear

We arrived home safe and sound from a quick trip to the coast where we spent some quality time with our folks. I say safe and sound because we had hoped to travel the previous weekend but we had a problem with our tires on Sebastian {VW Van} We truly had a hand of protection on us because the 'shimmy' we felt was enough of a cue for us to get it checked out. The prognosis? Had we traveled a long distance on our back left - it may have exploded! The treads were separating inside the wheel.

We had a wonderful visit and I got ferried around to a ton of yard sales. Will post about this later. The trip home went very fast but Mr. did stop for me by the bear carving at the entrance to Manning Provincial Park. I've always wanted to stop here.

Enough about me - my friend JanMary {Ireland} has some incredibly exciting news! Her husband made the BBC news - I won't spoil it, rather you can click HERE to be transported.

    Yard sales - we don't have them, but I really feel like I need them!

    Apart from the local papers, news interest has moved on to the parents and babies - which is where it should be!
