Sat Oct 26 00:00:00 MDT 2013 - Weekend With Aja

It's always fun waking up on weekends with Aja. Up so early in the morning, she wakes us up with her chatty talks as she plays with her Elmo and Minnie.

This weekend was totally different for her as she experienced the first snowfall of the year.  New word to her vocabulary: Snow.

Sunday, right after church, we then headed to Chinook for some shopping. This little princess loves shopping! However, the mall's Carousel was a mistake! All she wanted was ride that thing the entire afternoon!


Sun Oct 20 22:39:32 MDT 2013 - Gone Through Seventh Leg of PreWinter Chores

That's it! All done with my pre-winter chores. Weather was cooperating today; it was comfortably warm considering it was so cloudy and rain was on the forecast.

Here she goes, all washed up and cleaned and ready for the wheel change. After a little bit of a struggle on a busted wheel bolt key (the notches and teeth were all busted and had to cut it shorter to get to the good section), she's all ready for winter driving again!

NOTE to myself: dump all wheel lug bolts (can't trust the wheel bolt key anymore) and replace all 20 bolts with different set! She's all good for now.


Sat Oct 19 22:59:11 MDT 2013 - Gone Through Sixth Leg of PreWinter Chores

It is +15C but with the windchill, it feels like +10C. I had scheduled the better half of the day to replace my summer wheel set with the winter ones. These massive wheels will have to be washed and cleaned thoroughly before it is stored for the winter.

So, out with the summer set and in with the winter set! It just one of those things you endure living in North America.

One more vehicle to go and I'll be done!

Mon Oct 14 00:00:00 MDT 2013 - Viva Las Vegas - the Fremont Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is located in downtown Las Vegas boasting a $70Million light canopy with 12.5 Million lights and an amazing 550,000 watts of thundering sound. This light canopy towers 90 feet above the ground and spans a length of five football fields. The most obvious and largest part of the Fremont Street Experience is the light show from this Viva Vision light canopy.

Sun Oct 13 19:00:00 MDT 2013 - The Australian BeeGees Show - Viva Las Vegas - 4

Fri Oct 11 12:04:10 MDT 2013 - SLA High School Reunion Starts

For most of us, we think of high school as our best years ever -- of days filled with lots of friends, of personal accomplishments and quests, proms and school pranks, the fav teacher and those you labelled terror, your first girlfriend or boyfriend, or the teacher you had crush on, eureka moments on a chemistry lab, or the dissecting biology experiments that made you squirm, cramming reviews before a final exam, the songs you used to like or hate, laughters on the hallways, or the whispers or gossips you hear in the library, competitive games and pep rallies or cheers, the marching band you joined, or the rivalry and comradery you had...

But whatever you feel about reunions, reunions is about rekindling old friendships, of stirring up memories, and reconnecting with the new.

Wed Oct 9 23:59:00 MDT 2013 - Viva Las Vegas - 1

While going around Las Vegas, we saw this poster that says "Eat, Sleep, Show & Play". It's so true! While sad at times when most of the time, most people attribute the word Vegas to gambling... but reality is, other than that, there's more to do in Vegas. By this, it is just fair if it is referred to as the Entertainment Capital of the World.


Wed Oct 9 09:01:32 MDT 2013 - At Vancouver Int'l Airport...

... back at a very familiar place and now seems to be in a very long 3-Hr layover...

en route to Las Vegas! Yah, baby!

Sun Oct 6 00:00:00 MDT 2013 - Gone Through Fifth Leg of PreWinter Chores

Almost done with all winter preps. This weekend chore was for draining the ponds, cleaning the pumps and accessories, and storing them away.
