Family Day

February 16 was Family Day here in Edmonton, and McCauley was celebrating with lots of food and fun! Chris was serving up burgers, Dan was handing out toys to the younger kids, and lots of people were eating, skating, roasting marshmellows, and enjoying getting to know their neighbours. Besides taking pictures for the March issue of the paper (which is in production right now), I decided to strap on my skates and hit the ice.

You can also see some pictures from Family Day here.

Chinese New Year

I attended Chinese New Year celebrations in Chinatown for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I was there to take some pictures for the March issue of the paper, but I was also there to enjoy the sights, sounds, colours, and excitement that was all around. Those firecrackers were so loud I was afraid I damaged my hearing! It was also a blast to be able to walk down 97 street, right on the road. In addition to still pictures, I shot a couple of videos, which I uploaded to our channel at YouTube. Here they are.

We're thirty!

That is the headline on the front page of the new issue of Boyle McCauley News. It hit the street last week, and should be online soon. I'll post the link when it is up.
