A little "Crazy" for sax solos in the Gardens. #DocksideDrive @thebutchartgardens #yyjmusic

Got some new shoes for under $25 so took them for a test walk at island view beach. They may look good, but can see why they were under $25. Need to break them in to fit better.

Scored (almost) every pitch at tonight's @harbourcats game! Almost, that is, until called to participate in a promo where I was supposed to throw a ball through a small hole from 30 feet. Anybody who played ball with me this season knows I couldn't hit that from ANY distance, and I actually missed the entire board with my second throw. Didn't win $500, but got two premium tickets to another game (who wants to go?) and got seriously heckled by one section of fans. Scoring for the first time at a live game was quite a challenge, but pretty fun, and nice to see people's reactions and get to explain the game to some of the kids sitting around me. Fireworks were fun as always too! Great night at the ballpark. #yyjsports #playball #whatsanERAanyways

Has to be the hottest patio in town. Not actually sure I can sit out here for more than a few minutes!

Great to get back to @thebutchartgardens after more than a year away! Amazing performance as always by the Naden Band, and not phased by the wind at all. Sad to hear we're losing the phenomenal drummer for a while (off to French language training), but the 4-minute solo made for a good departure. Can't wait for the next show in the gardens! #yyjmusic

My straw is about the height of the CN Tower! Must be#711 #slurpeeday @7elevencanada

Two games into the tournament, we still haven't won but it's a beautiful day and I'm 4-4 hitting!

Great day for a ballgame with mom! @harbourcats clobbering the Victoria Mavericks but some good ball played by both sides. Sad that Claire Eccles picked up an injury and couldn't pitch, but still fun.

I still think I had the best seat in the house for yesterday's #canada150 #CanadaDay #fireworks show! Nobody in front of me and nothing but fireworks directly above my #kayak (so close the flaming remnants bounced off a kayak right next to me!). What a thrill to be in the #yyj #harbour for Canada Day, I will definitely be back next year! #thankyoucanada

Not a bad first time kayaking in #yyj Inner Harbour! Thanks to the girls at Jacksons Ice Cream for the boat delivery! Lots of friendly people out, fun to wave at the people gathering on shore as I drift by. And an @arkellsmusic concert for fun before the #spirit150victoria #canada150 #fireworks! (Gotta love being a millennial, instagramming all this from the middle of the harbour haha!)

Celebrating my awesome cousin Leland's 30th birthday today! Always a barrel of laughs and great to come together as a family to celebrate him. Great cake, even if it stained our teeth black. Happy birthday, Lee!

Some more shots from the @harbourcats #canada150 #fireworks show tonight.
