Catch up

It’s been about 3 weeks since I’ve made a post! Life comes first 🙂

Last year my sisters and I went to Italy and stayed with our 2nd cousin Piero and his girlfriend Sabrina, and our great aunt Wera. Piero and Sab came to Campbell River earlier this month and I went home to be apart of their stay! It was so fun!!

Piero has been to Canada in the past ( I think 4 times ) but until this visit it had been 20 years since. It was really cool because it has only been a year and 4 months since we stayed with them in Italy so we still knew them from that visit and had stuff to catch up on!

A shot of some of us at Elk Falls. We showed them a rain forest good time. We also got to show them the true West Coast and made a camping trip to Tofino, B.C. 3 + ish hour drive from hometown Campbell River.

South Beach Tofino. Amazing bay!

We spent 2 nights at a camp ground. We toured the beaches, whale watched, had ocean front lunch, flew a kite, sampled crafty beers at Tofino Brewery and a camped right near the beach.

Glad we got to show them such a scenic place. We also had a great time back home. We had some casual days visiting the farmers market and playing dice at home.

We also got treated to true Italian carbonara which is a pasta sauce of bacon, egg whites, cheese and seasoning. Followed with a tiramisu….  So yummy!

So much fun and so happy it all worked out to see them again! Rob arrived on the Friday around 2:30, I had already been visitng for almost 2 weeks so we didn’t stay long afterwards. Had a great pizza dinner with the family and then made the long 17 hour drive back to our place! Luckily he still had 6 days off and we got to hang out and relax at home together.

Got to see a couple elk while passing through Banf, AB. Once home, we enjoyed some down time and some of our favorite beer – Alley Kat Aprikat. We are planning to visit the brewery which is the oldest in Edmonton.

We wiped my old phone clear and loaded it with music for me to use as an ipod in my car. Just between The Rolling Stones and Creedence Clearwater Revival I have 11 hours of songs….so pumped!!! And that’s 2 of the many new artists. We also had a visit with our friend and his daughter. She is so smart and cute!


Rob left back to camp this morning and I’ve been tidying and hanging out. My mom arrives for a week on Wednesday so I’m excited and getting ready for that. We set up our new futon – thanks to Carol and Ken who gifted it to us! So now we have a guest bed. We got a bedding set and the 2nd bedroom/computer room is fully ready to go! Only a few days until my guest arrives.
