We've all been enjoying the warm summer weather, feel bad for the folks out East that are dealing with the hurricane.

The family had another eventful trip to the Pacific National Exhibition this year. Malcolm loves all the rides and this year they found out that Melody does too. Although they spent over six hours at the Fair, they kids didn't want to leave. Suffice to say, they went to bed late that night.

Friends come home.

You can tell how much of an impact people make within a group by gauging how they affect the people around them. For almost 4 years now we've had our dear friends Ryan, Sue and their kids Adrianna and Matthew live abroad in Austria. We've been lucky to have them come home to Vancouver for a few weeks during the summer to re-bond. Roger's always said this, he believes that Ryan and Sue have always been the glue keeping the whole group of friends together. In fact, during the rest of the year because of the lack of glue, days if not weeks can go by without any of the group coming together. Now that the family is back home, they tend to try and cram as many visits together as they can. We're sure glad they're home, albeit for a short time. Here are some recent pictures:

Roger's back.

Roger went away to Campbell River for a fishing and golf trip last week to take part in some Bachelor Party festivities for Andrew. Looks like fun was had by all. On the last day of fishing Andrew caught a monster of a Chinook, 23.3 pounds. While reeling in the beast, a seal even tried to take it away from him, evidenced by the two bite marks on the fish.

This past weekend uncle Andrew and auntie Deana tied the knot. Congrats to them. Here are some pictures from the past two weeks:
