Memory Keeper: Canada Trip Part One

IMG_20130708_164448

Hey there friends and family,
Since my blog is suppose to be about “Memories in the Making” I thought I’d better get to it! ūüôā I struggle with the idea of posting more storytelling type posts as I don’t think writing is my strong suit. So, no judgment please. Feel free to skip over this post if my family happenings don’t particularly interest you. Without further ado, here’s a snapshot of our filled-to-the-brim-of-fun summer.

Thankfully, the weather has been great. The kids have done a lot of swimming this year. Azure swims like a fish and even learned to dive. Huge accomplishment for Brecks, he can keep himself upright in the water. With the life¬†jacket on he was always rolling over into¬†his back. Now,¬†this means I don’t have to get in the water EVERY time! Hurray! Hurray! Happy dances. ¬†He is enjoying his freedom immensely, can you tell?

Totem poles in Stanley Park, B.C., Canada

We were very blessed to be able to head to beautiful British Columbia for two wonderful weeks this summer. Spending time with family and hanging out with a cousin and meeting doggie cousin, Jax. We started the long drive at 2:30 am on Saturday and drove 18 hours! We stopped for the night at a hotel with an indoor pool (Thank God! The kids were going bananas after being in the car ALL DAY!)

Azure getting his yahyah’s out. I took the kids to the pool, so dad¬†could relax a little in the room.
