My husband's cousin Rick Chmara made his what now seems to be a yearly trip out to B.C. from Woodstock, Ontario to do some hiking on Vancouver Island. On his last weekend here, we got to spend the Saturday with him so we decided to take him up to Whistler to ride the Peak 2 Peak gondola and of course to meet his little cousin and the youngest of the Chmaras, our beautiful son Connor Boone!
It was an absolutely stunning day and Rick was super stoked to be in Whistler 'post-Olympics'. We were too as we hadn't really participated much in the festivities while it was happening so it reminded us what an amazing experience and spectacle it actually was.

Connor was super excited as well despite a little bit of car-sickness on the way, but he soon bounced back into his usual spirited and 'everything's so cool' outlook.
Connor also became a photographer for the first time that day and took the next three shots which actually turned out really good!
The energy in the village was magical mostly due to the clear blue sky and incredible warmth coming from all around us. We ended the visit with some super tasty ice cream from Cow's and a pleasant ride home as the sun went down.
