A visit with Gwen

Saturday morning we got a call from Mary asking if we wanted to have a picnic with them. So Patty Ben and myself got our stuff together and jumped in the car. Albert could have came but he said no then as we had what the 3 of us needed all ready he said maybe he would go. I told him he should have said yes earlier. Id rather them say yes they are going and then if they change their mind they can but they say no cause it sounds lame to them then they realize that what they are doing is pretty lame as well.

Anyways the 3 of us jump in the car and drive through the mountains on the way to Victoria. Just as you are coming out of the other side there is a park called Gold stream Park. We have been there a few times but this was our first picnic. We had a small BBQ and Ben did the cooking and we all waited for Gwen to wake up so we could play with her. She is getting soooo big now. Mothers day was the last time I had seen her but Patty has seen her a few more times. Patty comes home and tells me all the new things she can do. She screams just for fun or to get your attention. She scooches across the floor on her bum when you sit her up. She smiles she laughs and she plays patty cake. Of course only if and when she wants too!

After lunch was finished Ben put everything away in the car for us and we set out for a walk around the park. It was a beautiful day for it nice and warm and sunny. There were lots of people all out enjoying the nice weather. When we first started out Adam had Gwen but as we walked the trail he saw too many fun things to do so Mary took Gwen for a while. Adam climbed up this steep hill and when he got as far as he could I pointed it out to Patty and she yelled at him to come down. You know how moms are LOL. Then we wandered out onto the rocks by the falls. Ben tried to get as close to the falls as he could without getting wet and I saw a few photo ops.

We wandered back towards the park and Adam and Ben looked for more fun places to climb. They saw a log they wanted to try and slide down but it was a lot harder than they thought it would be to climb up and very slippery. Adam made it up pretty far but had a small tumble on the way down. We made sure he wasn't hurt and had a little chuckle about it. We wandered around the park for a while chatting and taking pictures and then headed back to our cars for the trip home.

Patty Ben and I decided to stop in Cow Bay to get an ice cream at the Udder Guys ice cream store. Cow Bay is always busy but we lucked out and found a parking spot pretty close. It was a cute shop with lots of old memorabilia and they sold lots of old style candy that we used to get as kids. The ice cream was delicious and we sat out on their balcony looking at the ocean while we ate it. Of course I was the only one to make a mess of it getting it in my beard and mustache and I even knocked it off the cone onto the table but picked it up so fast the clock hadn't started on the 3 second rule.

When we got home last night we just relaxed and watched the UFC on pay per view. The title fight was everything we expected but the fight I wanted to see the most didn't live up to expectations although Matt Hughes did get his bell rung early in the first round and had to ask his corner if he had got knocked down cause he couldn't remember.

Well that's all for now I was surprised no one was bugging me for a post. Next week we are helping Adam and Mary move and I'm not sure what else is on the list but I will let you know. Enjoy the pictures!
