Happy Mother’s Day to all!! Especially to our sister in law’s Kim and Vicki, who had their little babies in April. Kim and Stu had their first baby, Zachary James, 4 weeks ago, and apparently he wakes up for a feed every 2 hours, so precisely that you can set your clock on it.

Emily Jane is Vicki and Paul’s second child, and she is now 3 weeks old, and both babies and mum’s are doing well.

Mark has now been up in Alaska for 3 weeks, working in a remote town, flying in and out of a mine site, on 12 hour night shifts. He is investigating core samples for a proposed mine. Hopefully he comes home soon, it could be either this Friday or next Tuesday.
Last weekend Lori, Jami and I went up to the Okanagan Valley and worked the OK Spring Wine Festival. We had a great time working the Mission Hill and Prospect tables, pouring wine to everyone, they were from Kelowna, Penticton, Vancouver, Alberta and Washington State.
This weekend I went over to my David and Nori’s house on Friday night for pizza, then last night I went to a wedding with Lori, at the Shaughnessy Golf Club (private, very luxurious).
Today I met up with my friend Libby, she is here with her wine company, settling in the new distributor, and we met up for a lovely walking tour of Vancouver, and of course, a nice long lunch!
