E- The Lou-Finn Olympics

It's not easy to find time to host a birthday party these we killed two birds with one stone when we put on the Lou-Finn Olympics at Kits Beach yesterday.

18 kids competed in Basketball, Volleyball, Shot Put, 100 meter dash, Long Jump and a 50m swim. We had a podium, medals, snacks, cake and a lot of fun. The weather was spectacular too. Happy belated 9th and 12th birthdays for a couple of special kids.

E- Lion Hunting

Thanks to Mark Creer and Dan Creer for patiently guiding us from Lions Bay to the peak of the West Lion. It was a long (10+ hours) hot (30 degrees) day that challenged the freshly 12 year old girl and her dad...but was a great worthwhile memory.

I couldn't be more proud of Finny for making it right to the top. She overcame her fear and pain in her legs to reach the summit in about 5 1/2 hours. For some reason she attracted the bulk of the bugs and came away with dozens of welts. Thanks for being our "jamboy" Finn!
