Hi everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted and lots has happened :). Kim and John both had their individual adventures last weekend – John went to race motorbikes in Edmonton and Kim went on her annual girl’s hiking trip – this year they went to Canmore! Frazier, Levi and I stayed at our friend Marge’s where we had a great time, and all got “beautiful” – baths and grooming for us.
Kim had a great time with the Hiking Chicks! For the last few years, Kim and her friends have met up in the Rocky Mountains for a hiking adventure and this year was no different! Well….it was a bit different, because Kim couldn’t do the hiking this year, but that didn’t stop everyone from having a great time :). The “hiking chicks” is now a group of 5 – and they are an amazing group of ladies – strong, resilient, funny, awesome and modest (at least that’s what Kim tells me :)).
Kim had an amazing time – great conversations – filled with lots of laughter (there was something called the game of Things….I”m sworn to secrecy on their answers), great food, great conversations – just what the doctor ordered.
Here’s to the hiking chicks! And some great memories…..
They are fierce:
They don’t forget the beer at the top (Bern – Kim thanks you for the cheers! Aprikat beer of course, – Kim and your tradition from the start!)
And….they took time to take a spa day – I think they planned this for Kim….this might become part of their annual trip I think 🙂
Kim is very thankful to have amazing friends – I think they are pretty cool too! Rose, Bud, and no thorns :). Jane you know what that means!
And, you can’t go to Canmore without making a purchase or two. Kim says a big Thank you Bern for the great idea to go for pottery in Field at Velvet Antler……and Kim couldn’t leave without buying the perfect pair of socks……says it all doesn’t it!
Well folks, that’s it for now. A quick update on Kim and SCAD – she started cardio education classes and rehab at the Field House this week. She said it has been awesome in boosting her confidence and she is going to head back to the gym next week – time for her to get moving and ready for next year’s Hiking Chicks Adventure! She is going to be doing those darn Via Ferratas and those hikes too! I know she will get there. A big thank you to all the chicks – Bern, Jane and Dawn for checking in on Kim and sharing all those great adventures! And maybe some wine too :). Red wine is good for the heart!
Paws up everyone! I wish you adventures and great times with your friends. Hugs to the Hiking Chicks – thanks for making Kim’s weekend and being great buddies!
