Asian dinner with friends!

Hi All,

Summer is definitely here in Kelowna. 30 Celsius today.

Chrissy and I had some old friends over. We made gyoza, , and Chinese sumai. For Desert I made blue berry gyoza, with ice cream and mix berry liquor. All was very tasty!

Tomorrow we are going kayaking in a lake close to kelowna. I will show you pictures later.

The beer is from Alberta. My brother in law brought it for me. $1 per can. Very cheap!

Bye for now.

Congratulations to Japan Womans soccer!

What an exciting Womans World Cup final! Makaiya her cousins and I watch the game. Exciting right to the end. Congratulations to all of Japan. Great news for a Country that has had so many challenges in the past few months!

We all look forward to more great things for Japan in the near future!

Doug and Family!

Sunday hike!


It has been a great weekend. Spent yesterday with my brother and his family at their house. Today we spent the day with Chrissy's sister. In the morning we went for a hike up Knox mt.( A small mountain in Kelowna city limits ) I carried a 15.9kg plate in my big Rossiginol pack. That was a good work out! It took us 45 minutes up! Tonight I am going to play 9 holes of golf. I will let you know later how it goes.

Bye for now.

Hi Everyone,

We did it we bought a trampoline for the family. It was such a deal. It cost 25 000 yen. It did take Chrissy and I 6 hours to set up completely though. It was worth it when we saw how excited Makaiya was when she first saw it. It is so much fun to bounce on and it is great exercise.

Bye for now.
