Easter weekend in Canada

We went to spend Easter weekend up in Chilliwack with family. Rick & Nancy were in town too:) Brought along the trailer and some quads and got to spend a day down at the Vedder River. The weather was beautiful! Everytime we go up there and the weather is gorgeous like that it makes us want to move back. There truly is no more beautiful place around than the Fraser Valley on a beautiful sunny day. Absolutely love the time we spend with family. Only wish we could do it more.

happy sweet sixteen!!

YAYY!!! The day finally arrived. Ashley Arlene Groeneveld turned 16:) We were soooo excited for her to get her drivers license. I know some people don't look forward to it and yes, it is kind of bittersweet. BUT....they're going to turn 16 if you like it or not..AND yes, it is very scary when they start to drive. But if they start driving at 16 or at 18 it's still going to be very scary those first few months. Ashley has been driving ATVs since she got her first one at four years old. And thanks to her rule breaking father she also had plenty of experience behind the wheel of a car long before it was actually legal. So the day of her birthday we let her go to school late and Bob took her into the DMV to get that drivers license:) It has been sooo nice to have another driver in the house!  Happy Happy Birthday Leaper...we love you tons!
