Spontaneous Penticton Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend in Penticton with our friends M+M Friesen and their kids. They mentioned that they were planning to go and invited us to join them. Ron and I were not sure if we should go because we had not travelled with Naomi before and it was so last minute. On Friday afternoon when Ron came home from work we talked about it and decided to be spontaneous! We are sure glad that we did! We quickly packed up and made reservations at the hotel. The next morning, after Naomi's first feeding, we piled into the car and started the trip. Naomi did great! She slept all the way the Princton, ate again, and then slept almost the rest of the way to Penticton. We had a wonderful time with our friends, and it was great to get away from the regular and mundane routine of life. Thanks for inviting us M+M! Here are some pictures of our trip.

We spent time at the hotel pool and at the beach just relaxing and enjoying the wonderful sunshine. It was a little tricky keeping Naomi out of the sun to avoid burning, but still warm enough in the shade without bundling her up like an eskimo since the shade was quite cold when the wind was blowing. We left on Sunday afternoon just as the rain started. Naomi did really well again on the way home. We stopped in Princeton again for nursing and then drove the rest of the way without stopping, while Naomi slept in her car seat. I am so pleased with how well the trip went and it gave me hope the our upcomming trip to Ontario will go just as well.

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
