Yesterday was my birthday and it was a big one. I turned fifty and discovered it is true, things get better with age. It's not an exaggeration to say this was my best birthday ever. It's the first one in many years that I was able to spend with both kids and my husband, and we spent the day doing some of my favourite thing together.
I'm sure it's not a coincidence that my last name is Wood and that's where I like to spend my time. Everything about it fills my soul. I've wanted to take my family on a hike of the Scenic Canyon trail for two years now. I really wanted them to experience this beautiful and varied landscape and the payoff at the base of Layer Cake Mountain is an incredible, hidden canyon that you probably wouldn't ever see unless someone told you about it.

The highlight of the afternoon was watching my son and his friend try waterskiing for the first time at the tender age of 25. I think they're hooked!
