Penticton Weekend

I am writing this post outside on my front porch watching the Canada Day fireworks light up the sky, as the air finally cools down to a comfortable temperature. Don't you just love wireless Internet and pyrotechnics?
Anyway. We are back and we had a marvelous time! What a great time to spend with family and relax in the HOT sun. The average daily temperature was 36 degrees, but it did not seem as hot as it would in the Lower Mainland.
The drive up started around 4pm on Friday. We loaded up the van and the truck and off we went. After a few stops for some food and stretching we arrived in Penticton around 9pm. We all agreed that it was nice to already be there on Friday night instead of trying to drive on Saturday morning. We had so much fun together and I think I will let the pictures mainly speak for themselves. Simply put: When is the next long weekend? I can hardly wait!

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. So today we packed up our vehicles again and made the long trip home again.
I hope you all enjoyed your long weekends as much as I did.

Looks like a good time! Naomi is growing so much hair! She's really starting to look like a toddler more than a baby (from what I can tell - you're the one that gets to see her every day!)

"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
