Happy 3rd Birthday, Chai!
I’m sorry that I haven’t been blogging…
Things have been getting in the way.
Ha ha, no, I can’t blame Chai. I could give you various reasons for why I’ve been quiet on here, but it doesn’t really matter– I am back in time for a very special day–
It is time to celebrate…
Chai’s 3rd birthday!
Chai is a very busy boy so I thought I would share some photos of him since we were reunited at the end of last field season.
Saying goodbye to his niece before driving to British Columbia
Enjoying the luxury of the hotel after 11 hours in the car
Trying to relax on the ferry
Finding a new favourite spot in our new apartment
Testing out the dreaminess factor of the new duvet cover
Meeting several of the new neighbours
Taking interest in the fruit I brought home through a volunteer harvesting program
And then helping with the preserving of it
(He was particularly curious about the popping sound as the jars sealed)
Helping with craft fair preparation
The craft sale profits went to buying Chai pricey diet food,
which was his least favourite part of this year!
Santa’s helper wrapping presents
Chai enjoyed the daily excitement of opening the advent calendar my mum made us
Playing with one of his Christmas presents
It took a while, but eventually he didn’t mind wearing his Christmas bow-tie
He had already forgotten the Christmas spirit by Boxing Day,
when we had a lost Boston Terrier visitor for a few hours
Helping with laundry
Participating in yoga
It’s about time to stop, but I could add many, many more photos… Chai is just so photogenic.
I made the decision last year to stay year-round on the island and give up the nomadic field biologist life. But an opportunity came up that I couldn’t turn down and I ended up back in northern Alberta for a seven-month contract. This is the last time Chai, I promise!
But Chai seems to be happy spending the summer with my parents again–
Happy Birthday Chai!
