“Family”

We spent a day at Lake Cocolalla with my cousin and her daughter. I love these kind of beach days! We have so much fun and it's pretty easy to get out there! We loved playing in the water, paddle boarding and riding the sea doo. I love chit chatting with Jonica and Georgia and Maeve gets loved on. Holly and Greta tasted oreos and tried to guess the flavor. They enjoyed that game lots! 

This day totally wiped Greta out (she's still recovering from having her tonsils and adenoids removed), but I think it was worth it. 

Now I'm just really hoping the smoke goes away so we can wrap up summer with oomph! 

I really love swimming in a cold river on a hot day. I kind of like that shock to the body! This is such a good little spot to swim and it's deep enough to jump in. I was SO proud of my brave girl Holly for giving it a go! She jumped in once and then did it again immediately. And then went another time before we left! I also want to remember how generous and kind my children were on this day. They are great kids!

We went to Kootenay Lake a couple of times while we were in Yahk. It is such a beautiful lake and the kiddos were all pretty happy to play! Everyone enjoyed getting into the water and we had so much fun! Just look at the joy on Maeve's face as Conor tossed her! And holy moly, Conor is looking good! So glad he's mine! 

Holly spent pretty much the entire time floating around with her new peacock tube. So much fun! I'm so grateful!

PS: I can't believe how tall Holly is standing in front of me! 

We spent a lovely few days in Yahk with my parents, sisters, and some extended family. The girls just love going to Yahk and enjoying freedom and lots and lots of cousin play time! There's always lots of yummy food. Conor and I played games with family members. And Maeve actually did an excellent job of sleeping! Conor and I got to hike a little bit together. Here are some highlight photos from our time around the trailer. A million thanks to my Auntie Michele for letting us stay in her trailer. It makes our trip up so much smoother and easier. 

This weekend we went camping at Priest Lake in Idaho. We tried out a new campground (Beaver Creek) and aimed to camp for 2 nights, but ended up staying for only one. Maeve was up from 1am onwards... so we were pretty tired! Fortunately, we still made some excellent memories. There was a full moon that looked extra awesome above the beautiful lake. We saw Saturn and Mars which was very exciting. We went to the beach to play in the water at about 10 am and spent a good chunk of time there before returning to the campsite to roast hot dogs and marshmallows in a thunderstorm. And then we packed up all our gear soaking wet and went home! Camping with a one year old is no cake walk. We've camped with each of our daughters at age one and this isn't the first time we've left early or felt exhausted. I'm pretty sure it's still worth it. We have one more camping trip (a one nighter) in August, and I'm crossing my fingers that next year, camping is more sleep filled!
