:: Whistler or Bust ::

Tomorrow night we're off to Whistler for a quick two-day trip. Contemplating skiing, but may snowshoe instead. I'm honestly over-the-moon (do 30 year olds use this expression? because I kinda like it) excited as I've never been in the winter and have not been since 1987! Any suggestions on places to check out while we're visiting our neighbors to the north would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming a lot has changed and it doesn't look much like this anymore...

Whistler - chair lift


This is how I remember the border crossing with Cousin Matt and Cousin Mike...is it the same 23 years later?

Whistler - border


Mom, Me and Megs (yes, that's my gorgeous sister...nope...don't have a brother)

Whistler - lake


Sidenote: My dad is in the process of scanning every single photo from every album he has from his childhood, my moms childhood and from when me and Megs were kids. Stayed tuned for some fun oldies.

LOVE the old photos, Patty's hair, Rupie's entire look, knowing that you and I were bff's then and the fact that Whistler is SO different now! You guys are going to have a blast! Can't wait to see the "after" pics when you get back!

OMG, I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of you, Megs and your mom! In fact, I made Matt come over and look at the photo. He has seen pictures of your sister and said, she is beautiful! Can't wait to hear about your fun.

Love it! My dad is scanning old pics of my childhood and I get a good laugh every time......really like Megs and Mike and Matt. Too cute. Have fun in BC, I haven't been there since about the last time you were there.

Tara Holmes said...

Wow! Yes, you still just jump over the fence at the border. Nothing changes around here!!

Erin said...

Poor Megs...we all know that she truly did blossom into a beautiful girl :)
Tara - I think the jumping over the fence only occurs at the US/MX border these days - ha! Canadians might be a bit more strict especially with this little event called the Olympics coming up in two weeks.
