Michel walked his lovely daughter Alisha down the 'grass carpeted' aisle this past weekend in an small and intimate ceremony in her mother's backyard. There was a gathering of about 35 people including only immediate family and a few close friends. They had a beautiful day with the temperature around 37 degrees.

Meet the new bride and groom - Robert and Alisha Wald.

The skirting is done - and what a difference that makes!

We still have to skirt in the deck, and put up the railings, but Michel put the stairs together and did a wonderful job. Our place is really beginning to look great. We sure do enjoy our deck!!

Michel's Dad and Uncle Jean Guy drove down from Kelowna for a visit. Our first overnight guests! It was nice to have them here. We had a good visit.

We've made quite a few trips back to Kelowna to shop and visit, and one quick trip to Edmonton in June for a wedding, then I went to Grimshaw for two weeks to get to know my little granddaughter, while Michel came back to Greenwood to begin construction on our deck.

He managed to get the holes dug for the footings, but we were a month without power, so not much 'construction' happened until July. (in this picture he's pouring the concrete for the footings). Finally on July 3rd - we had power! And only a temporary pole at that. And Michel sure has been busy since then.

Here's a picture of the deck - as it was in the beginning. Michel busily building....

Our deck is now finished except the railings.

Look at that deck - itsn't it wonderful!!

in this picture -- Michel screwing the last screws in the deck !!!

Greenwood, BC

I can't believe how long it's been since I've updated this blog. We've been without internet since June 9th and finally today we're back on line!!

Our mobile home was moved onto our creekside lot on May 30th. We had planned, at that time, to just come back and forth on weekends to Greenwood, but Michel's job at Burnco was so part-time that we just decided to move. So we've been living full time in Greenwood since June 9th.
