Weekend at the Lake

We love going to the lake. We spent the weekend out there and had so much fun!

The boys explore and play all day!

Building a bike ramp with Dad:

The bike ramp provided all day entertainment!

And of course, quad rides:

or in this case pretend rides:

Hot dog roasts and smores by the fire, our favorite!

Another great weekend!

Family Camp 2016

We had another wonderful year at camp with family and friends!
Lots of playing, riding bikes, park, games and activities.

Beach day with friends:

The weather wasn't warm enough to be by the water a whole lot, so this ended up being our only beach day:

After church snacks... huge cinnamon buns:

Lots of biking riding and playing with friends:

One of the camp organized activities was a bubble game. The kids went inside this giant bubble and then bounced each other around. It was really fun!


Jakob (somewhere in there):

Zack got stuck upside down, Jakob to the rescue!

The favorite event of the week! Water fight!

S'mores and selfies:

So thankful for great memories with our crew :)

Canada Day

On Canada Day we spent the day at the Alberta Legislature grounds. 
It was so much fun! 
We took the LRT from Century Park to the Leg grounds, then walked around to see all the activities.

Lots of fountains!

Family selfie:

At noon they had a 21 gun salute. It was super loud!

We took a tour of the inside of the Legislature building:

It was really hot out, so after lunch the boys ran through the fountains:

Once we were all finished downtown, we walked back across the High Level bridge, all the way down Whyte Ave and then back to the University LRT station. It was a long walk! The kids were pretty exhausted when we arrived back home.

Later in the evening Michael and I went to a party at a friends place. He has a beautiful penthouse apartment that overlooks the Leg/river valley/high level bridge. We hung out, watched the fireworks and had a great evening!
