The other movie was "The Hang Over". We only watched the kids one. it by the time we got home it was Mid night. The kids did have fun though.

Happy Fathers Day!!

Hello Every One!

And Happy fathers day to all of you Dads out there! In Canada yes, today is the Day to Celebrate being a dad. We usually get a fathers day card saying how we are appreciated and so on. Also a gift! Maybe breakfast in bed! A day of papering for us. I gave my dad a gift certificate for a round of golf at a new golf course in town. I received new shorts and a shirt from Chrissy and a paper weight and pictures from Makaiya. I feel very loved! Luckiest Dad in the World. I hope that is how all other Dad feel out there. Like we are all the Luckiest in the World!

Happy Fathers Day!

Body Strength

Hello Everyone,

I hope all of you are well!

We are doing well here in Kelowna as I have said before.

I actually feel great! As I said before Chrissy started exercising and has motivated me to take care of my body more too. Since I have started working out I have experienced the the following. Of course I had soar, stiff muscles at first. But, I have increased overall energy, more self confidence, and I have noticed my long time adult back pain is no more!!!! The work outs are total body. They focus on all parts of the body. I believe in all of you! Not only will strengthening your body help your ski racing goals , but your overall life. I hope you all can invest time into staying healthy and strong! You can do it!


Good morning,

It was a good weekend here. Sunny and hot! Our family also had a great experience. One of Makaiya's friends , dads is a Fire man. And this past weekend he volunteered to be in a parade for a festival called the "Fat Cat Festival" It is all about kids playing and having fun. Actually the Kelowna Fire department always has a Fire truck in all Kelowna Parades. He asked Makiaya to be in it with her daughter. The morning of the parade he then asked if we wanted to be on the truck. Oh, Yeah! We waved and smiled at the people watching. It was so fun! Enjoy the pictures!

Bye for now.

Working out for better results in the winter

Good morning,

I hope all of you are doing well. We are good here in Canada.

Tajanna is also well in Oslo, Norway. She is a Nanny now for a family with 2 children.
She said she will return in September. She very, very happy and building confidence.

Makaiya is doing good. She is back in her normal school of course. She goes to Gymnastics on Tuesdays and will start junior golf lessons on Sunday. She too gained confidence from spending time in Japan. She is more confident in her self too.

Chrissy and I are still exercising everyday but the weekend. We do the work out either before work or after. Depending on the day. Working out at home is convenient that for sure. P90X from Beach looks very good too. The workouts are done at home and do not take too long to do. Like I said before I feel great and have much more energy. Of course when I first started my muscles were very soar and stiff. Normal if you want muscle gains!! I hope you all push your self this off season to improve if the physical training area. It will help you mentally as well because you know you are stronger! Come on! You can do it!

My last golf score was 85. Not my best score but I hit the ball great! I have been working on swinging my body and arms together and smoothly. Also pinching the ball to the grass at contact.

Bye for now

10th year Anniversery


it was Chrissy and My 10th Anniversary this past May 1st. To celebrate we went with another 2 couples to stay at a winery called burrowing Owl. it is located close to Oliver. An hour and a half south of Kelowna. We had dinner in its 5 star restaurant and stayed the night in a suite. We had a fun and relaxing night there. The wine is the best in the Okanagan.

I have had 4 games of golf this spring. i have my handi cap at 9. Best score is 80. My goal is to shot regularly in the 70's.

I bought a new putter from Ebay. It is called Rife. They are very popular on the Senior tour in the US. I love it!

Bye for now.
