“Hayden Lake”

Some more photos of our vacation at Hayden Lake! Conor, Holly and Greta went on a big canoe trip one morning. They packed snacks and covered a good amount of the lake. Conor reported that it was really fun with no bad moments. I hope it's a memory Holly and Greta get to cherish! Our friends came down for a day of play and that was super fun! It was all about hanging out on the beach and playing! We had a couple family movie nights. I finally watched Moana start to finish. That movie choice was inspired by the canoe adventure. My tummy is definitely popping. I'm 12 weeks pregnant in these photos. I've received a lot of feedback about my size from Greta; "oh ya Mom, I can definitely tell you're pregnant."

Sometime in the spring, when I could see that summer was going to be a tad on the disappointing side with zero trips to Canada, I got desperate and booked a couple vacations. I needed something to look forward to this summer! And I'm so glad I did! I book our trip to Banks Lake and our stay in Hayden Lake. We just got home today and we had a really lovely time! The weather was gorgeous and fortunately there aren't really any wildfires this year, or at least no smoke from them (yet). We stayed in a little two bedroom cabin, ate simple food and we were a short walk to the shared beach. The beach was super beautiful. It's south facing, pretty sand and the water is so clear! This was my type of vacation! We had access to a couple kayaks, a paddle board, a canoe and some other lake toys and we loved using them. Swimming out to the little dock was so much fun. I loved watching my girls play on the dock.

Coming back home feels like a downer. It was so fun to play and have so few cares and concerns! I'm so glad we went on this little vacation. Our family really needed it, I really needed it!
