Some Highlights from BC

Visiting the Harder Hilton is always a high-light!

On Canada Day, July 1st, we celebrated by taking a boat ride in our new brother-in-law's new pontoon boat.

My mom sewed and designed a jacket for Arthur out of Hmong fabric which turned out really well. The Hmong are an ethnic group from Laos and they are particularly good at quilting, weaving and embroidery.
Conrad designed a quilt which his Grandmother and Aunt Cyndy are making for him. It will be orange, red and yellow.

Enjoying our BC relatives under the cherry tree.
Karla got married in April and so we celebrated one day after supper with her and her husband. (Our new brother-in-law prefers not to be mentioned by name or shown on blogs so we are respecting his wishes. That's his arm by Karla.) We made the wedding "cake" in the afternoon while we were waiting for them to arrive.
