Our Sarah Liisa was born June 25, 1982 … memories take me back to those early months when I became a mother … what I remember very clearly from the first moment Sarah was placed in my arms, is the exquisitely tender protective love that washed over my whole being …. the blossoming of the heart valve, opening to the unconditional love of a mother for her child! Brian and I spent those early months in awe, sometimes just watching Sarah sleeping! Children are a gift so extraordinary that any descriptive somehow falls short. Perhaps this is as it should be … ♥️
Flash forward, and here I am in Kimberley, British Columbia with Sarah and her family! My own early all encompassing years of parenting, a long ago memory:)!!! As beautiful a mountain setting as any, to celebrate her birthday … it appears the Kimberley Run may turn into an annual event. It is Sarah’s second 10 km mountain run and Aliana’s second 1 km bike and run. Rob may be encouraged to start training for next year, making it a family affair when Oliver turns three and qualifies for the 3-7 year category :)!! I could hike it :)!! Sarah and Rob’s friends the Jobidon family all joined in and completed the race as well. Bravo to all!
Had some fun park moments with the kids on the weekend … Keiran, Amie, Aliana and Oliver were fascinated by a little fawn that followed us back from the park to our condo …. it was quite sweet …. almost felt like he wanted to join them in their play …. very endearing ♥️
The little ones were excited to surprise Sarah with birthday balloons, pie and ice cream! I had a hard time finding 35 on a single balloon …. a 3 and 5 balloon worked!
