And now, by popular demand . . .

Many friends and family (okay, two of you) have suggested that the Penners need to have a family blog so you can follow our adventures in B.C. over the next year. I have finally caved and started a blog. I don't follow blogs . . . at all. So, this is just slightly ironic.

I suspect this blog will be mostly filled with pictures, and the odd comment or two. Hopefully it won't just be me posting, but Karla and the girls as well.

We have been in Burnaby for about a week-and-a-half now. We have already gone hiking numerous times, seen fireworks over English Bay (Celebration of Light), taken the SeaBus to Lonsdale Quay, had Gelati several times, gone to Barnet Beach and found starfish, and visited several parks to find the best ones in the area (we have friends arriving in one week and need to be prepared).

I will try to post a summary of the last week (in pictures) in the next few days, and then will try to post regular updates.

So, this is the PennerFive's Take on the West.


  1. The starfish were so coot!


  2. My Mom says thank you! (I do too.) We can't wait for more posts. See you on Friday!!! Give Hannah a hug from me and tell her I said hi.

  3. i was just thinking last night that you guys should do something like this!!!! i am thrilled that you are blogging your adventure...such a great way to document and share at the same time. Blessings on you dear friends.
    thanks for keeping us posted, and connected. (i am putting off setting a date for the next bookclub karla...trish, jenn and i will probably just sit and look at each other-just won't be the same with you!!)
    LOVE to all of YOU!!

  4. Yeah for the blog! I will be expecting great things so make sure to keep up!
