We just got home from our holidays on Vancouver Island and we had a wonderful time. We were able to enjoy Jesse's family's cabin on Hornby Island for 5 days then carried on to Campbell River for a wedding. We didn't have the best weather, but there were a couple of days of decent temperature before the rain set it. I was hoping to ride my bike every day we were there, but apparently I'm a fair weather biker:)

While we were in Campbell River we were able to cross something off of my 2011 list of things to-do: ocean rapid rafting! It was fun, but not the huge adventure thrill I was hoping for. Jesse and I will have to do a river rafting tour for that:) We did get to see a lot of wildlife though which was very cool! I didn't get any pictures though because I wasn't really sure what to expect with the tour. I think I was scared I'd be holding on and the camera would go over board or something like that:) Here are some pics of the holidays:

And Finally, we need your help:) Jesse and I have started a Hornby tradition of visiting the free store each year and competing in our own Free Store Challenge. Last year Jesse's hand-made batman mug beat out my advice book for Most Useful item. Here are the rules set forth for this year:
1.) Item must be able to fit into a bread box
2.) Item must be useable
3.) Item must be "bad-ass"

Here we are holding up our items (mine is the "biker-dude" onesie and Jesse's is the Elle Macpherson workout video

Please Vote for the winner!

thanks for stopping by!
