Trip To V-town

This weekend my man and I headed to Vernon for his dad's birthday. After driving for 6 hours we ended up in beautiful lake country. Seriously there are lakes glory. If you've never been to the Okanagan I seriously you check it out, its beautiful. Much different than the mountains and sea that us Vancouverites are used to and so beautiful. While there we did a three winery tour. Grey Monk for Lunch followed by Mission Hill and Quail's Gate. 

My man's parent's and I at Grey Monk Winery.

Costume Bowling '08

Every year I throw a costume bowling party at near the end of September. Its started as a way to celebrate a great summer instead of being upset that summer was over. Now we have reach the third annual and its still just as fun.
