As we got out of the car Neil became a little bit more excited. This was only the beginning........we spent the whole day going from Home Depot to Home Depot and back to Barbeque Country and back to Home Depot again looking for Neil's perfect BBQ. Eventually at 9pm we returned home with almost the perfect BBQ and a lovely new table and 4 chairs. We were too exausted to put it all together and decided that Sunday would be BBQ day.
Neil awoke at 6am and ran downstairs to start work. When I eventually came down at 10am he had it all put together and ready to go.
The sky started to turn a bit grey and just as we got cooking it started to drizzle.
We carried on!
And then it started to really rain.
Even though we couldn't actually sit and eat outside, we did have a lovely lunch. Hopefully it'll be a bit more sunny next time.

I am finally over my spell of Bronchitis and pneumonia! Phew that was horrible. Some days when I had to drag myself in to work I really thought to myself that I wasn't going to survive. The running is killing me. Running in -20, -30 really did me in and I think that was the cause of the problem. The weather is now warming up and spring is in. The snow is slowly melting and the sun is starting to beam out and heat this city up. Thank god! It has been a long winter and I found it hard, but fun. The novelty of snow wore off though, after about 4 months of it. The novelty of breathing in air at - 30 also wore off after about a minute! its a bizarre feeling when you breath in and your nose instantly freezes and you feel like you have loads of boogers up there, when in fact, it is just frozen inside. Anyway hopefully Sophie will take a few snaps of the warm weather for you all to see.
On another note. Anyone who hasn't booked Emerald Lake MUST do it now for the time they wish to stay there. The hotel is getting booked up quick and we need to know who is staying and for how long. SO emails please. Or call the lodge and say you are part of the Parham/Ralston wedding and you will be able to book.
Thank you all
