although below are pics of the kids, Mike and i actually left them with nana at the cabin while we toodled off to see Bruce Cockburn at the Kaslo Jazz etc festival. An incredible concert-and festival-i was swept up in the songs and the whole mountain village-floating stage experience was wonderful. An excellent time except for my issues of gut ache that lasted for 24 hours (the same 24 hours that we were without kids, no less!) We returned on the ferry and made our way back to the cabin and the next day met one of Mike's friends whom we haven't seen since our wedding 6 years ago in creston for breakie...Then back home for a Birthday cake Party for Mikey and few friends (photos to follow) And today, the first coolish day since june it seems, i cooked a turkey Dinner. The pot is simmering with turkey broth, an unlikely smell in an August kitchen.
