Dear Dave,
So did you make any New Years resolutions?  I often do, and sometimes I even manage to keep them.

Last year I set a goal of doing 50K steps a week.  I knew that 10K per day was just too ambitious for me.  50K/week was challenging but attainable.  After all, our goals should be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timeframe.  

Well, I accomplished that 2016 resolution!  So what did I do...I set the same one again for 2017.  .
It has been cold in Vancouver.  I was out on my daily walk yesterday, and saw some really crazy ice crystals...
Stay warm and good luck on your 2017 goals!
Happy New Year!
Dave Emery

Hilton Puerto Vallarta FAM Highlights

Just in case you missed it, I  sent out a report highlighting our FAM to the Hilton Puerto Vallarta last month,  
The Hilton is a family-friendly resort with a great beach, located in a great place in PVR.  My favourite area on the property is the roof-top O'West Lounge that features an infinity pool, open bar, sushi chef and is adult's-only!

We are especially thankful to WestJet Vacations for their valuable partnership in providing flights for this FAM.  Timon Tours was also invaluable in providing great support and excursions!
