As usual, we arrived in Canada just in time for Canada Day.
We went to Polson Park with Nana for some flag waving festivities and got some ice cream on this incredibly hot day!
We went to a cabin with Pop and Grandma Sue for some boating and fishing fun. There was only one fish caught, but Tenzin caught several more in Kal lake. He was pretty happy about it!
We got to see a bunch of friends back in Vernon- it’s always fun and comforting to hang out with the same people in the same place again. We also made sure to do all of the Vernon tourist things like Davidson’s Orchards, Planet Bee, and Ellison Park. The kids also got to have a classic Vernon Screamer, which means I won that bet!
We spent a beautiful day with Auntie Nina and their cousins Koral and Kefton out at Kaloya. I had fun taking photos of the sweet cousins. Although they don’t see each other too often, they have a special bond. We sisters do too of course!
Myla turned 6 in Vernon. She seems to always have her birthday when we’re traveling, but she loved having her family around for her party! I can’t believe she’s 6! My baby!
I think I appreciated Vernon more than ever on this trip. Canada in general is a little nicer to families. Myla took swimming lessons, and Tenzin took a challenger camp where he went hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and white water rafting. They loved it! Vernon is so accessible for outdoor activities, which I can now fully appreciate. So, we’ll be back Vernon, at least for some nice long vacations! Also, a shout out to Pop and Grandma Sue for having us at their house for almost a month, and taking the kids to the cabin and fishing. Nana for taking the kids over night several times and out for special outings. The Aunties and Uncles were Awesome too! Thanks to everyone that made our time in Canada so memorable. We loved it! Here are some parting shots.
