Late post better than nothing right?

So back on the 30-31 weekend of july, I’m at the lake and took 2 pics. One of the heron that nearly attacked me (sounds better that way ) and the sunset right after.

BLPA Regatta… use your imagination

Well thanks to my great foresight of only having one set of batteries w/ me @ the island this weekend, this year’s BLPA Regatta looks like it solely consisted of the War Canoe. D’oh!

But I had fresh batteries for sailing and have put them in the BLSC 2005 photos section. Enjoy

Another ET Bark Lake Adventure

So it was just Dad and ET going to Bark Lake this past weekend . The little guy almost slept the entire way and woke up on the bumpy road (my family’s name for the road into BL). Where we (we’ll it was mainly me ’cause ET was looking a trees or something… kids ) a mommy deer and it’s fawn. Took some blurry photos and then on to BL.
 
Auntie Kim and Uncky Phil were up along with Grandpa & Grandma. So ET’s support team took over (and by the way did a great job of looking after the little guy the whole weekend), and the two sailors were off to the Regatta.
 
The sailing was great! The wind…. yes I said wind was just to the left of "OMG! There’s no way you’re getting me out there! Are you $#!^ing me!" windy. We had a great turn out, 10 boats I believe, above average i think. Everyone tipped atleast once except me, my Dad, Stuart J w/ Charles L. I got three 2nd places but it was good enough to win the day, I dont think I’ve worked so hard for a win in years… or it might be that I’m just getting old .
 
When we got back team ET had put him down for his afternoon nap, and almost right away he woke up. We had steak for dinner and ET had bear crackers he likes them but then again he eats dirt when he can.
 
We put ET to sleep, I played some guitar, the ‘rents went to bed, stayed up w/ PHIM by the fire and went to bed.
 
And then left the next day @ 2pm for home.

ps. thanks to mom for being the lighter sleeper and getting up with ET on sunday morning!

First Look @ the New Who

Well if you know where to look this isn’t news to you but for the rest of you the first look at the 10th Doctor’s look has been released. If you ask me it’s great. Very trendy, retro-modern, fantastic !
 
Also there’s news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s  Anthony Head, some guy from Coyote Ugly, and my personal fav Elisabeth Sladen will be returning as Sarah Jane Smith in the second series! Elisabeth Sladen will the first cast member of the classic series to be on new Who!
 
oh and it’s only 4 months and 30 days till the Christmas Invasion, can’t wait .

Ethan-Ty Year One

First off Donna and I would like to thank everyone who made Ethan’s first birthday such a wonderful event . We had such a good time and I think Ethan did too.
 
It’s incredible to think it’s been a year since the little guy was born. So much has happened in such a short time, or maybe it’s just that I getting old and my preception of time is speeding up .
