Brigitte is almost 2 — the first year was great — the past year has been amazing.
Car clean and fixed up
Everyone around me knows my love for VW.
Our newish wagon just came back from it’s first recall appointment (changed something in the airbags and steering column) plus 2 other fixes to warranty-able items (gas gauge issue and xenon turning headlights software fix).
The VW CPO warranty has already paid for itself (figure it was an extra 1k — 2k to buy it with that warranty from a dealer).
Some people hate dealerships — but I’m sold on VW’s system. They even washed and polished the car while it was there!! FTW.
Linda and Brigitte off to Ottawa
Great shot of the 2 loves of my life.
Sleep well buddy – you were an awesome cat. We’ll miss you.
1st Birthday party in the park
Brigitte’s 1st Birthday party in the park.
My beautiful little girl turns 1 today — hard to sum up the 1st year but it’s been incredible. Her personality is shining through and she’s so much fun. This morning I went to give her a piece of banana and she actually said “nommmm” as she chopped it. Hysterical.
Very interesting. Some great looking stuff from Ed — love the photo/line on the cover. Maybe we’ll find out more soon !!
“And the waves will wash it all away.”
Linda’s still out in Toronto for the week.
Brought Brigitte by for brunch with my TO relatives and it looks like she might have won them over. Here she is telling them a great joke. ;-)
1 happy kid + 1 amazing mom
Love when Linda sends me photos like this when i’m at work.
Brigitte is 7 months old today. She’s more and more amazing every day (doesn’t every parent say that ?!).
We bought our plane tickets ridiculously cheap through Delta (800$ for Both Linda and I / return / 1 stop / taxes in) and sent off our deposit $ for the condo we’ve rented (lawn is onto the sand).
Already contacted some buddies and internet peeps to show me around during a couple dawn patrols. Also have a great list of resto’s and cool spots to hit. And it’s Devyn’s birthday (Chris and Ralu’s daughter) the first weekend we’re there. We’re excited.
Now I have to get my arms back into paddling shape.
