Matt got back from his West Coast trip with Jamie late on Sunday night where they had a crack at climbing Mt Rainier in Washington and then flew down to San Francisco and road tripped down to LA. The climbing in Washington resulted in some very red noses which kept us company for the rest of the trip. Most stressful time of the trip was when Jamie nearly missed the flight from Seattle to San Fran after having trouble finding the hostel on Sunday night after a pub crawl. Other than that, we had a fantastic time and were even lucky enough to get tickets to the Western Conference NBA Finals in Oakland which was the Golden State Warriors against the Houston Rockets. Needless to say it was epic! He's looking forward to beginning a healthier lifestyle having just finished two weeks of limited exercise, a few beers and a couple if trips to Hooters (obliviously Jamie's idea).
Van has been putting in some big hours studying for her exam which is next Saturday and she's looking forward to having that over and done with. The last two weeks that Matt has been away has flown with the only drama being the oven pilot light deciding to play some tricks one day.
We recently found out that in Canada a one dollar coin is called a loonie and a two dollar coin is called a toonie which is something we'll have to remember when dealing with shrapnel. We also managed a trip to Kensington market and got some delicious fish tacos which we'll definitely be going back for more of!
