Easter Love Weekend

 Our weekend getaway started with a walk to The Grove on Denman to get some breaky. It was a beautiful, sunny day so we had to stop and get a picture with our favourite art dudes. These guys make us happy!

 Then we got into the truck and headed to the Sea to Sky highway. First stop: Taco Bell!! We ate outside in the sun by the train tracks. A hippie said hi to us.

 Next, we stopped to get some wind shield wipers at Canadian Tire and then we got a beer at the Griz. We decided this would be a good place to stop and we got a hotel room at the Sea To Sky... I think that was what it was called.
 Here is me pointing at a grizzly bear scratching his back on a tree... kinda reminds me.. of someone.. hmmm... DAD!
 That's me pointing to our hotel.
 This is Jonny standing by the river. We went for a walk to a nice little pub on the river.
 I am sitting on a bench that I thought my dad would appreciate. It is made out of twisted wood.
 Sunshine Jonny!

 Happy Easter skate park bunny!
 Jonny wishes he brought his skate board...
 We drove up to Pemberton and turned around and came back to Horseshoe Bay. This is our new favourite getaway.
 Toe dipping and shadow watching.
 mmm... a switch on fire place.. .how romantic!

 Back home we finished off our weekend with a special dinner at the Keg. It was my first time having crab. It was DELICIOUS!

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.

Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 

Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 

Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.

But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
