Canada Day Long Weekend

This weekend we headed out to Red Lodge Provincial Park to celebrate the Canada Day long weekend with 7 other families and their many children. (22 in all!)

We have a great group of friends and had a great time. The weather was just okay, with one really nice day to float down the river, but we all had fun just being together.

Lilah is little miss social and all the kids just love her. There is a great group of little girls for her to play with and she is starting to really connect with some of them. And the boys too...

Oh how we LOVE this country we live in! We are so grateful to live here and in this province as well. We are so close to so many beautiful places to visit and camp.

Strange how just knowing Zoe is half way around the world... our family no longer feels complete.... it feels ALL THE TIME, like someone is missing... we can hardly wait until she can join us!

Happy Canada Day! Looks like you had a fabulous day with friends! I bet the kids had a ball, I love their tatoos!

I can only imagine how much you miss your Zoe girl.

That looks like a beautiful place to camp! I miss doing big group camps like that! I know what you mean that your family feels like somebody is missing! Soon Miss Zoe will be in your arms forever! Happy Canada Day!

Hugs,

What a fun way to celebrate Canada Day. I know what you mean when you say your family is missing someone!
