Maxin' and relaxin' in my sister's yard - with a view! Can we move here, please?

Living two Provinces away from grandma and grandpa makes these moments spent together all the more precious.

June 28, 2013

So excited to make it to Penticton and see the ol' haunting grounds, especially the giant peach! oh, the memories!

June 27, 2013

Making the most out of our last day in Vancouver - beach combing, exploring downtown, visiting china town, and loving every second there!

June 26, 2013

In the tree tops on a suspension bridge in Lynn Canyon. The entire place was like a fairyland rainforest. Loved it.

June 25, 2013

A highlight of day one in Vancouver was our visit to the aquarium! I got to see a dolphin, TJ got to see her sharks, and the rest of us enjoyed the rest of the aquatic life!

June 24, 2013

Our longest day of driving - driving, driving, driving - and through some winding, crazy highways in the pouring rain. We had our sights set on Vancouver, and nothing was going to stop us. We did manage to see some gorgeous sights along the way - like this view over Osoyoos!

June 23, 2013

On the road again! With the #1 highway washed out from the flooding, we changed our route to Vancouver to traveling on the #3 highway through the Crowsnest pass. It was very scenic, though it rained much of the time. We stopped in Sparwood to see the world's largest truck, and stopped to appreciate the incredible Frank Slide. Our plans may have changed, but we enjoyed the trip just as much - maybe even more!

June 22, 2013

We had a great turn out at the reunion, even with the flooding happening in Calgary which prevented some from making the trip. It is amazing to see our family growing by leaps and bounds like this. I feel blessed!

June 21, 2013

A glorious first day of our family reunion. I got to meet and cuddle with my new grandniece, my kids reconnected with their cousins, and even though it poured rain, we all found the fun!

June 20, 2013

Another night spent in our "regular" hotel in Medicine Hat (on our way to our reunion). It has a nice BIG room with two queen sized beds and a sofa bed. Perfect for our family of 6!

Prepping the tent trailer for our upcoming summer trip! Vancouver - here we come!

A monster cloud, about to eat up the moon!

Nothing will stop these two from being outside to enjoy a rainstorm!

June 14, 2013

BB's first time making scrambled eggs for the family - she made them even better than I do!

June 13, 2013

Creating a house of joy can involve little acts of love - like labeling the girls' sandwiches in a cute way. They've got a great dad!

June 12, 2013

After months of hard work, TJ did an amazing job at her "Sing Like A Star" concert. Amazing performance of "On My Own", TJ!

June 11, 2013

Another field trip! (Must be an end of the school year thing). Lyndon went as parent volunteer and they both came home covered in ticks. Ew. Glad it wasn't me!

June 10, 2013

TJ and B represented their school in their age groups at the city track and field meet. I was able to be there for a couple of their events. Way to go, girls!

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

A canoeing trip for TJ's class. Finally the weather cooperated enough for this to happen. So much fun!

June 6, 2013

Field trip to the YMCA!!

June 5, 2013

We brought the girls to buy them a book for their hard work in school this year. They will get to have them when we leave on our trip to Alberta/B.C. in a couple of weeks

June 4, 2013

Lovely walk with a few of the fabulous ladies in the ward

June 3, 2013

My track star! She actually won 5 events but gave her friend one of her ribbons because she wasn't feeling well. What an awesome friend.

June 2, 2013

You can't ask for a better Sunday than church with my beautiful family, and a dinner of grilled chicken and poutine! Awesome!

June 1, 2013

Another fabulous meal planned and prepared by TJ! This time - Seafood pizza~!
