This is the first game we've gone to in two years, and I was curious to see if she was going to be more interested in the game this time. We had the added distinction of her choir getting … Continue reading Lethbridge Hurricanes vs. Saskatoon Blades: A Fun Night of WHL Action
Through work, I was able to actually visit Toronto for the first time in my life. The city is huge, and traffic is nuts, but it's also pretty neat, based on the bits of it I was able to see.

So midway through our trip, just before we were going to get on the ferry to the Sunshine Coast, we decided to take a short stop and take in one of the biggest tourist attractions on the coast.

So it's been a while since I've written anything, as I've been on vacation. Time to catch up and write a couple more travel related blogs before getting back to the usual.
