baby, it's cold outside

my fingers are stiff and cold and barely working, but i just had to tell you...we're FREEZING here!!! (Sorry to those of you who may be thinking of vacationing/moving here... you know who you are!) Can I just say when the weatherman woke me up this morning and said "It's a frigid -38 degrees Celsius, and with the windchill it feels like -50" I wanted to throw the blankets over my head and settle in for a long winter's nap!! They say it's gonna get warmer, but we'll see about that. Don't get me wrong. I'm a seasoned veteran of cold Canadian winters, but this is a bit ridiculous.
So, to brighten my day I am having a little giveaway. (I've never done one of these, nor entered a blog giveaway, so this should be fun) Whoever comments with the correct answer to my question will get a surprise from me in the mail (it'll be worth it, I promise) In your answer, you must name the movie and who said this quote..
"Welcome to the Himalayas"
Stay warm....

Ft MacLeod Tri

Better late than never...
The boys competed in a triathlon this past August.
It was FREEZING cold. Last year it was BOILING hot.
But the weather aside, it's always a fun time
Bruce did the individual Sprint race while Dean and Owen competed as team "BIG GUNS" (seriously, they came up with that name on their own)
Here's they are after it was all done
I may have to diversify my training...but then who would take the pictures?!?
Seriously, it's a great family event, so if any of you have "do a tri" as your New Year Resoulution we totally recommend it.
