I've put together a little photo gallery to celebrate some exciting stuff that happened at the end of 2011.
To begin, let's reverse back to November. It was off to T-Bay, Ontario for a weekend of fun for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary! The whole event was really lovely and it was great to see family.
|Did you know that you can get a certificate from Stephen Harper for being married 50 years? I had no idea.|
|Sister, me and mom|
Back in Squamish, I spent the month of December training and taking a class on Health, Environment and Risk, a very interesting subject.
|Out mountain biking behind campus|
|view from the trails|
|Going down Half-Nelson, so fun!|
|gorgeous waterfall, missed seeing it the first few times because that part of the trail is so fast!|
|Pretty sure we were the only group from class to take a photo together at Questival, a good sign that we are still friends after working on a major three week group project!|
After finishing up the semester, I traveled home to Winnipeg for a much needed break.
Of course it's my parents, not the children, playing with their food on Christmas morning! (we decided it would be nice to make a proper breakfast this year and not just eat chocolate all day..).
|pineapple double decker pancakes, impressive.|
|yum pumpkin fruit santa pancakes|
|New sport- winter golfing!|
|Out skiing at windsor park|
I've also got in some quality trainer time while home for the holidays. My coach has the idea that every holiday= training camp + testing. It makes sense.
|+5 and no snow? weird.|
|colder temperatures pushed me to train inside with my brother's fishies. Good motivation to not fall off the rollers!|
2011 came to a wonderful end with my Aunt's wedding. She enjoyed my parents New Years marriage so much as a child that she decided to pick the same date. What better time for a celebration?!
You know it's going to be a good wedding when the first song at the church is Mario cart love song!
|Beautiful bride and groom|
