Good Monday morning! It was been one really LONG weekend! Ryan and I booked Thursday and Friday off of work!
We decided that this summer we were going to go camping. We would be roughing it for 2 days! So, on Thursday morning we drove the two hours (and 40 KM’s into the bush) to our home away from home.
What else do you wear when camping then a “save the trees” shirt! Very appropriate! :-)
I loved our campsite. It was private, lush, and right on the water! The water was so beautiful. Sand shore, clear and warm waters.
This kind of camping is not for the faint of heart. No running water, no electricity and no flush toilettes. We slept in a tent and cooked everything on the open fire!
We didn’t starve though! We had steak and potatoes, bacon and egg breakfast and chicken wraps!
Not to mention S’Mores! My personal favorite!
Can’t you just see the complete concentration in my face as I assembled my s’more? ha ha!
The cool part about our campsite is that in 1840 it use to be a logging town. It had a historical hike you could follow with stories and artifacts.
We were so lucky the weather was so beautiful. We only had about an hour of rain. During this rain we just ducked into our tent for a couple of games of Yahtzee and Hangman.
Ryan is total cheeseball, love it! :-)
After packing up on Saturday morning we drove off and stopped at another stop from our campsite. It was the Brent Crater that was created over 450 million years ago!
It was nice to be home on Saturday! And Ryan and I worked together to get all our stuff unpacked quickly so we could get ready to go back on the road! We were headed to friend’s Josh and Rebekka’s parents cottage in Ladysmith for a “floatilla” and fireworks!
What is a floatilla? Well boats decorated in lights that parade around the lake! It was pretty cool!
And after the parade you stayed in the middle of the water to watch the 30-40 minute firework display!
It was an awesome night spend with some new and old friends! Thanks again for having us!
Sunday was a very special morning. My brother and Sister (in law) was having their new baby boy, Clark dedicated (baptized).
The very special part was that they had asked Ryan and I to be his God Parents. We were so humbled and honored to be a part of Clark’s spiritual life.
After church, we headed back to my parents place for lunch and a visit! It was a very warm day but all the kids cooled off in a little pool in the backyard!
Busy weekend eh? But even despite all the activities is was still relaxing, restful and a weekend that was full of memories!
How was your weekend?
