So we took a family reunion trip to Victoria, BC. It was fabulous! My mom found a little cabin in the middle of the woods (you should have seen the switchbacks to try and get there. 4-wheel drive was needed in the driest conditions!) that basically had its own little piece of ocean connected to it.
We did several fun things while we were there, but honestly, the best was just being together. Here is what we did most nights:
When we weren't hanging around in paradise, we would go into Victoria and play. One day, our adventure of the day was going to a place called "Ice Cream Mountain" and having ice cream. One day, our adventure was to go to Butchart Gardens and look at flowers.
Mom worked hard to get a ship to go Whale Watching in Victoria for two pregnant ladies and four little kids. She finally found this one, which agreed to do it. It was a great adventure!
Anyway, it was a fabulous vacation, much enjoyed by all. Chris and I missed a couple of days of school while we were gone, so it was a little tough to go back to school right after being in heaven! But we adjusted and all is well!
Oh, and we took some family pictures while we were there. Here is the link, if you are interested!
