  • Washington

  • We've had such a good time the last few summers out in Washington, we decided to do it again this year. We rented a little cottage on Lake Sutherland again, and prayed hard for nice weather. We were in luck, and had sunshine most of the trip. I got to try out some stand up paddleboards, and kayaks, [...]
  • Little Bitterroot Cabin Fun

  • We got to go play at Lee's sister's cabin down in montana a few weekends ago. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and the company was outstanding. ^^These kids didn't even need the boat, they would have been content to just hang out on the tub tied to the dock all weekend^^ [...]
  • Oviatt Farm

  • Lee's parents were in town watching some grand babies, and invited us to come hang out at the farm for the day.  The kids had a blast running wild with their cousins. ^^Trying to catch some minnows^^ ^^Wren loved the river^^ ^^This stick was her favourite part^^ ^^Wren's only gin [...]
  • Jurassic Forrest

  • My cousin got married in Edmonton last weekend, so we stayed with Lee's parents and made a weekend out of it. Lee's mom proposed taking the kids to Jurassic Forrest, and it was a big hit! During our lunch break, the kids were playing at the park. All of a sudden we see Harper yelling at another lit [...]
  • Bertha Falls

  • We hiked into Bertha Falls (6km round trip, 150m elevation gain) this weekend. In all my years of Hiking in Waterton, I think this my first time seeing the falls. The water was high, so the falls were pretty impressive, and we actually made it off the trail without any rain! ^^All ready to go [...]
  • Beach Time

  • It was a record breaking day on Monday, and so we went with some friends to a nearby beach. The water was higher than anticipated due to run-off, but the kids didn't seem to mind. I didn't get as many pictures as I'd like on account of the fact that I was a little busy trying to keep my 1 year old f [...]

  • Wally's Beach pt 2

  • Since it's currently SNOWING outside my door, I thought it would be timely to post these pictures taken at Wally's Beach a mere 4 days ago. Boo Alberta weather, Boo. 
  • North Cascades National Park

  • Last year for Christmas, I got Lee this US National Park Map. Our goal is to add at least 1 tree every year. Since we were out in northern Washington, we decided to swing through the north cascades national park. We didn't plan things very well, and ended up driving about 3 hours each way for a coup [...]
  • Whidbey Island

  • A few weeks ago, a family friend was generous enough to let us use his vacation property on Whidbey Island, WA. Lee decided we would drive through the night, and so after hitting up a wedding reception, we left Canada at around 9pm. Despite me asking if he would like me to drive numerous times, Lee [...]
