Big Bang Pumpkin

Three days before Halloween, the landlord family asked us to join the Pumpkin Carving.

They had one extra pumpkin for us. Taddy wanted to try his first pumpkin carving.

Wow, they are big!

Justin and Ashley, you guys already have ideas?

All right, let's do it.

The cleaning was the worst part, but after that it's fun.


Well done!

But Taddy wasn't very happy because the outcome was so different from his sketch.

Then we put the candles inside of Jack-o'-lantern.

They all look nice. We are ready for Halloween!


October 31, 2007:

We decorated the house!

And kids are ready for Trick-or-treating.

Now, here are kids who came to our house for Trick-or-treating!

Some of them had style. We enjoyed seeing them!

The little girl wasn't much dressed up, but so cute!

But after all...

Poor pumpkins.

Well, maybe we'll dress up for next year, but until then...

See Ya!!

Mountain Drive Weekend

We went for a short trip on the weekend. Drove 5 hours to get to Adams River from Vancouver.

Arrived Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.

We wanted to see "Salmon Run".

The trail was filled with a lot of falling leaves.

Pretty nice!

But we did not see many salmon at this point.

And later, we found that there wasn't much salmon to see this weekend...

But still, this is a very beautiful place. Nice to walk around.

Beautiful sky!

We really enjoyed walking the "yellow trail".

and loved the sound when we stepped on the leaves.

Finally, we saw many sockeyes salmons!

"Welcome back!"

There was a big lake by the motel we stayed.

So we took a walk before dinner.


Next day, pretty much what we did was driving, but took a different route this time.

Stopped several points to see nice views on the way back to Vancouver.

And we also stopped by Whistler.

Well, it's nice to get out of Vancouver once in a while. We saw and enjoyed the beautiful nature scenes from this trip!!
