This week was amazing! Friends of mine that I have known since high school were here visiting since Tuesday evening. There was:
Lana- we have been friends since I was in grade 9. We did a few years at the same University. She is now working on her PhD in fish toxicology (I think). She was up here for some sort of conference and took some vacation time with it. Haven't seen her in one year.
Kristen- went to middle school, high school and University together. She is best friends with Lana and actually just lives in Marsh Lake, YT. Very cool woman. Haven't seen her in about 6 years.
Lesley- friends since grade 7 or 8. We were also in girl guides together. Spent many nights camping and travelling together. She is working on Masters in rocks... or dirt... or something like that! She was up here this summer doing field work. Other than this summer, haven't seen her in 5 years.
So all three hopped in Kristen vehicle and drove out here for the week. We had a blast! The weather was shitty though, and when it wasn't raining, the mosquitoes were eating you alive. So we did some driving tours of the area, watched movies, did some crafts (will take pictures of them later), ate heaps of good food, chatted chatted and chatted some more, and played with Hunter.
They brought us kiwis, but they were so ripe we tried out Yukon Chatterbugs recipe for kiwi sauce. Hunter loved it!
