This has to have been one of the fastest summers ever. I still feel like it just started, and now in a mere week it's back to school! Crazy...Anyhow as short as it seems, we managed to pack a lot in.
|yes another gratutious photo of my pooch|
Speaking of family, we spent most of it with my 4 year old niece who is now moving back to Canada from Taiwan.
She's super cute. Though I forgot how much work a 4 year old is...
But it was sweet watching Lulu bond with her little cousin.
|she was smitten with her Uncle "Monkey"|
Lulu did a 2 week horse camp, along with a week of nature camp plus another 2 weeks of an art & music camp.
We took a trip out west. To visit family and also take in the sights. We had such a fantastic time.
But staying in a swanky suite at the Chateau Lake Louise with the best view in the hotel didn't hurt either....
Did lots of hiking.
Breath taking views.
Sat by the lake to watch the sunset.
BBQ pancakes...why not?
Plenty of time was spent swimming and splashing around.
now we can all go cycling together.
Hawaiian day at camp.
Good old fashioned fun.
A day at the farm...
Some carnival rides. I almost threw up on the Caterpillar. The things I do for my 8 year old...
And no Lulu is not wearing my shirt. She's growing fast, but not that fast!
We still managed to get out to eat at restaurants a fair bit, which is always fun and a treat.
But the highlight is our new purchase.
A new weekend home in the country.
So exciting and I've been consumed all summer with choosing furniture and decor.
It's like a dream come true.
We are here for the last week of summer and I'm in heaven.
So all in all it has been a wonderful (albeit busy) summer but I've loved every minute of it.
I'm so blessed and fortunate to have such an amazing partner that helps to make all of our dreams come true....
Hope you have had a wonderful summer as well....and enjoy the last bit of it.
