Summer vacations take forever to arrive but go by so very quickly. Ever notice that?
The last two summers we've chose to end our summer months with a HOOORAW and a full on family break from the city craziness!
It's worked out really well for our small family and reminds us about slowing down, taking naps, eating well, and maintains our love for Tim Hortons coffee!
Peace, quiet, no line ups, and loads of popsicles.
Pretty great combination!

These images are special to me.
We still have some time to enjoy our escape before reality and routines kick in.
I'm trying to avoid, ignore, and pretend those schedules and routines are still months away.
Something is telling me they aren't.  BUMMER!
So for now we will continue to enjoy one of our favorite parts of the world and not wish our summer months away.
The OKANAGAN continues to bless us with so many memories!

These things make me want to stop time.

I know the memories that lie ahead will be just as wonderful.
But don't we all wish we could stop, take a deep breath, and package up the wonderful.
And I suppose that means we have to package up the not so wonderful.
Cuz we all know life drops those little ditties on our doorsteps as well!

Anyone know of a way to do this?!
This post is dedicated to my MOM, Grama, and best bud.
She is a big part of this past weeks wonderful!

The Lake!

Mara Lake has graciously gifted my family with some amazing memories.
This week is no different.
First week spent with my Mom and Andrew.  Pretty amazing to share my Mom with my wee man.
I'm very grateful!

And to share it with a wonderful couple right next door has been fun as well.
Jen and Brady took me out on the boat one morning.
I took the opportunity to get a few pictures!
And by a few of course I mean hundreds.
I've watched Jen grow from a shy, not so confident little girl, to a beautiful, outgoing, and frigging funny young woman.
She's a Paramedic.
She saves peoples lives!
And she's getting married to a charming farm boy, Firefighter next fall.
The word CUTE comes to mind when I watch these two,
And they chatter like they've been married 25 years.
Love it!
Thanks Jen & Brady for sharing your time with me!
