As soon as the weather kicked into sunshine mode, summer began in full force for my family and I. Since here where I live in beautiful British Columbia only manages to get a good two months of warm, sunshiny weather for summer, we have no choice but to take advantage of every minute of it.
So we pack-jammed our entire last week with lots of fun and relaxation.
First off, we spent a lovely weekend down in Birch Bay, WA with my long time BFF Rosie and her sweet family. We enjoyed swimming, playground fun, the beach, a trip to a local and yummy Mexican restaurant and two nights sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows and eating S’mores.
Mid-week, I drove myself and the girls back down to Birch Bay to hang out with my sister and her kids for the day. Besides a few hours swimming at the pool, I took all the kids to the playground for some fun and then a trip to the candy store for some treats.
To end our week, hubby and I took the girls to Kraus Farms in Langley, BC to do some raspberry picking. For only being there an hour or so, we managed to collect enough berries to fill three baskets.
Half of our berries were frozen c/o the hubby.
The other half we ate over top of sponge cake and along with Coolwhip.
Being that summer is my favourite time of year, I’m all about trying to squeeze in as much fun into it as possible. The way I see it, there’s always fun to be had and it’s always lurking around the corner.
So why not …
