summer daycations...

This has been a stick-close-to-home type of summer for us and I, for one, have really enjoyed it! We've taken a lot of little day trips here and there and the family time has been so, so good.

White Rock... (so far, we've gone three times...)



Hicks Lake...


Rolley Lake (with no pics to share just yet, but we are planning to go again with my parents... and their canoe!)

Whistler... and the gorgeous sunshine coast drive to and from...


Vancouver... this is English Bay from Vanier Park... 

...and the fireworks presented by Thailand...


If you remember, I've been recovering from some surgery, and Emily had her first job, so sticking close to home was always part of the plan this year. We've LOVED our backyard...


...we've LOVED time with friends and family...


...and we have lots more planned for August, since our kids don't head back to school until September.
 I have a feeling that some canoeing, a hike at Mt Baker, and maybe some shopping in Vancouver will round out our daycations quite nicely!

Enjoy it, Kimberly. Pretty soon ...they will be off to college and that is a whole new ball game. Have fun! Hope you are improving.
