Where does the time go? How can it possibly have been two years since the summer we travelled from Orkney back to Vancouver – and then waited and waited….and waited. And as with everything else, Charlie came at his own time and on his own terms: 90 minutes from first contraction to delivery. Done. Already a world traveller, he is still our ‘extreme’ one, our outdoorsman, our adventurer, and to me, the icing on my little family’s cake. Happy Birthday Charlie!
