Its been quite a week, and a good one

I will start by saying, wow, Stel is really quite excited about his up-coming triathalon... He is now doing the medium race, 6km kayak/32kmbike/8km run...
Today he went to his second official training, today was run/hike through some pretty tough terrain. He was glad he had done some running this week thats for sure but is sure glad he has now seen how tough the terrain really is!! He took a couple big falls, but didn't want to get behind so got up and kept going - a sore ankle and a few bruises. He was pushing himself - he is way to competitive! Later this week he is going for his first bike training...

I took the kids to Victoria this week for a few days of exploring.

They all seemed to have a really good time, but I missed having Stel around to help chase Baby I!!

Baby I loved going on the horse drawn carriage, she loved the horse!

B loved going to the bug zoo, one of his favorite places in Victoria!!

The Titanic exhibit at the Royal BC museum was very good. Each of us was given a boarding pass when we entered the titanic exhibit and at the end you could read the wall and see if you were one of the survivors, some of us were not lucky! Baby I did not like the life-size wooly mammoth! S found the museum to be a bit too crowded but enjoyed the other things we did more.

We went on a tour of the parliment buildings, with the wheelchair we had to take a seperate entrance, because of this we got to see the prison cell in the basement which is not part of the actual tour.

A bit of swimming in the hotel pool and then some visiting with a friend of B's at their house way out in Mechosin,
a 3 ferry sailing wait and home we came.
I am exhausted today, but the kids were so well behaved we had a great time.
