Eleven years ago last night, Mischa had just returned home to Victoria after spending Christmas with us when we lived in Deep Bay,a 3-hour drive up-Island from here. She went into labour around supper time, and just after 10:30 pm, River came in to the world. (He's the reason we moved to Victoria almost 6 years ago now!)

River is smart, fun, quirky, funny, and a joy in our lives every single day. He'll celebrate his birthday with a party this coming Sunday, but last night we took him out for dinner to one of his favorite restaurants. (Forgive the horrid picture, but he's sporting the new fedora we got him!)
