2021 Highlights: Week 12

We climbed a mountain! We climbed Mt. Daniel in Pender Harbour, a hike we've done several times before. This time Peter and I decided we were going to encourage Rose to hike as much of it as she could. Rose is 3 and a half and a perfectly capable walker and hiker. But she loves… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 12

2021 Highlights: Week 11

Outdoor playdates are allowed again! Lots of great vaccine news this week! A family member unexpectedly got their first vaccine dose this week and Peter and I both got rather teary-eyed when we heard the news. As well, it was also announced that essential workers will begin to be vaccinated in April which means Peter… Continue reading 2021 Highlights: Week 11

What March Looked Like

Does this picture sum up how Pearl feels about her baby sister? Actually, Pearl is a great big sister and is often (not always) eager to help. She likes to get me diapers and blankets and choose clothes for Rose. She likes to bring Rose toys when Rose fusses and will gleefully tell me when… Continue reading What March Looked Like

Spring Break 2017: Oregon Coast

Over the past six and a half years of marriage, Peter and I have tried to take advantage of Spring Break as much as we can. In 2012, we were young and broke but wanted to get out of town so we spent a few days in Washington, as cheaply as possible and had a… Continue reading Spring Break 2017: Oregon Coast

Spring Break 2016 – Sechelt

Things that happened without leaving home: We did some local hikes and exploration. Which also included some time at the neighbourhood park. (That swing is not really Pearl-sized.) We hung out in our backyard for basically the first time this year. It was sunny enough to hang laundry to dry outside for the first time… Continue reading Spring Break 2016 – Sechelt

Spring Break 2016 – Whistler

To kick off Spring Break 2016, we headed up to Whistler for a night. Way back in 2013, Peter and I had ventured that way for spring break. We had a little less snow and a whole lot more child to deal with. Now, I could show you some sweet pictures and let you think… Continue reading Spring Break 2016 – Whistler

Spring Break 2014

Halfway through Spring Break and feeling thankful. I love lazy days at home with my best guy. I also love adventuring with him. For the first half of Spring Break, we took off to Vancouver Island to visit with friends and wander down memory lane. We made a road trip of it (complete with sound… Continue reading Spring Break 2014

Snow and Sunshine – Spring Break 2013

When you think Spring Break, you generally think "beach", right? Me too. However, that's not what my spring break vacation looked like this year. Pictured below: Spring Break 2013 Peter and I snuck away for a few days in Whistler. You might know it as the ski resort town that hosted the 2010 Olympics. You… Continue reading Snow and Sunshine – Spring Break 2013
