Cool Kids ...

April 8, 2017

James and Ella ... having fun ...
posing for pictures with their Aviation glasses ...
Just a couple of cool kids ...!!!
 

Mike and I could not decide what sports to watch this evening ...

sooooo....

We watched all three sports ...

Hockey on Mikes' iPad (along with his glass that lights up when a goal is scored) ...

Curling on my iPad ...

and the UFC fights on the television ...

We figured it was the perfect set-up ...!!!

It was a great evening ...

 

Girl Time ...

April 8, 2017

It was Girl Time for Ella and Alana ... for some pampering ...
they were going to have a pedicure ...
Ella is so ticklish ... she was trying not to flinch ...
 
The young ladies were all finished ... very relaxed ...
and have very pretty coloured toes ...
Alana and Ella then made their way to Costco ...
to do their weekly shopping ...
Ella took time out to sit on a massive folding chair ... I guess needing another break ...
She looks lost in there ...!!!

Ice Crystals ...

April 2, 2017

It was a sunny day ... perfect to spend it outdoors ...
I loved seeing the snowpack melt on the pool ...
especially with the ice crystals shimmering underneath ...
I just couldn't resist ... taking a few pictures of the formations ...
Little slivers or pieces would break off ... and they were unique in shape ...

Mother Nature is amazing ...!!!

Mini Holiday ...

March 31, 2017

We decided to head down to Eureka, Montana ... 
for a mini holiday ...
to pick up a package and check out Lake Koocanusa ...
for fishing later on in the season.  
We thought we might visit our friend ... but unfortunately he was not at the cabin ...
but he told us we could stay at the cabin ...
How fortunate for us ... !!!
We ventured off this afternoon ...
checking out a few areas in Rexford ... and checked out the water level ...
We were amazed at how low the level was ... 
when the water is released into the lake ... the level comes half way up the banks ...
The water is being held back at the dam ... waiting for the spring run-off ...
before they fill the lake ...
 
We contined on our way up the valley ...
stopping at one of the boat launches ...
It still amazed me ... when I stood at the top of the stairs at the Marina ...
to see the water level ...
We'll have to check out the lake ... later on in the season ...
We drove back to Rexford ... driving thru the townsite ...
stopping at the Frontier Pub ... for dinner ...
We enjoyed a delicious meal of fish & chips ... 
After dinner we drove back to the cabin ...
and settled down to a relaxing evening ...

This morning we went to Eureka for breakfast ...
before we made our way to Libby ...
Enjoying the scenery as we travelled along ...
The lake was beautiful ...!!! 
 
We arrived at the Libby Dam ...
It was spectular ... we will definately have to return ... 
to see this once the water level has risen ...
Pictures were taken of both sides of the dam ...
After touring the area ...
we drove across the bridge and made our way to the town of Libby ...
Stopping here for a short time for some refreshments ... before going back home ...

The water in the Kootenay River was high ... and fast moving ...

with the melt of the snowpack ...

We stopped on a bridge crossing to take a picture of the raging run-off water ...

We had a wonderful couple days ...!!!
