We had a great parade on Friday and Nathan drove the police truck at the very head of it. I was able to get some fun shots because I sat in the back of the truck. There was a feast and games later that evening where I also got some fun shots, but didn't let that interfere with me playing in some games. The adults played a game that I can't quite describe other then you roll a dice and if you got a three you would run into the centre of the circle and try and blow up a balloon. If someone else in the mean time rolls a three then you have to sit down and they try to blow up a balloon. I think the object was for you to blow it up so much that you end up popping the balloon. I don't really get the point of the game, but it was all smiles, laughing and cheering.
Here I am collecting my balloon, only just in time to sit back down again because someone else rolled a 3!
Out again, out again snowmobiling. Nathan's parents have been up for the last 10 days and it's been a blast. I took Nath's Dad out snowmobiling and I can only compare this trip to getting thrashed around in a blender. What exactly am I talking about? Well all of the snow has blown into a billion mogul hills that have hardened. I couldn't go more then 20km/hr because I kept launching off of these tiny hills and smashing back down again just to hit another one. My whole body hurt the next day! But lets get to todays topic "how to pee on the tundra". First of all let me assure you I tried everything to avoid this, but at some point I gave up trying to avoid doing it. So the next question was how, when you are miles away from a potty, it's minus 20C out and your bundled up in your snowsuit? (hey why is it when you put on a snowsuit you have the urge to pee? Does everyone remember Robert Munsch's Book "I have to go!"?) My biggest fear was getting frost bite on my bum, but it wasn't too cold for the minimum exposure. Thank god I had a giant rock to hide behind! I am going to leave the rest up to your imagination but everyone should try this liberating experience! I feel like I could truly take on the world! Here are some pictures from the trip!
Recently I have been without photoshop and have been unable to do any post production on my images. I assure you a lot has happened and I have a lot to tell, but it just wouldn't be worth anything without a picture. The new photoshop is out this month, so we'll see what happens...for the sake of this blog...honey if your reading, can you buy me a $1,000 program? :)
I moved to Nunavut 3 years ago with my husband and Alaskan Malamute. Here we started raising our first daughter Ezri and shortly before we left, became pregnant with our second.
As every journey has an end, we found ourselves back south again, dreaming of returning north one day. Please read about my adventures and continue to feel free to send me e-mails.
