And just what have I been up to?


Boy has this past week ever been a busy one! I thought that I would give a little peek into our last week with some quickly edited photos. Both of my kids attend the same preschool and it being the end of the year for the kids, of course there is a mini "graduation" ceremony to attend! Taiton is onto bigger things in September - Kindergarden and he can't wait to attend "the big school" now :)


Ashylnn will get to come back for another year of preschool and is so happy because she gets to take Taiton's spot in the Kinderprep Program because she will be 4 soon enough. She has been telling me all week that she is a big girl now and that she loves her teachers - SO cute!




After the ceremony we quickly packed up and headed up to my parent's vacation property on Quadra Island. The weather was wonderful with only one day of rain and when we got there Grandpa was waiting with his new toy. The kids practically ran me over to get a ride on the quad with Grandpa! Can you see the satellite dish in the background? Oh yes...we were definitely roughing it! lol


This is our home away from home :) - After many years of camping, I realized that me and tents don't get along too well! lol I even brought my craft stuff so that I could get ahead on some pending deadlines...if I only remembered to bring my inkpads...



Here is a photo taken from the beach. I have probably taken this exact photo 10 times and I never get tired of looking at this view! This is Granite Bay on a remote part of Quadra Island. They are working now to put through some power lines and this time next year I should have all the amenities needed to function in my world :)



This is one of my favourite photos of the trip! I love looking at the boat launch from the beach and I really have no idea why! lol I probably took over 100 photos while we were there of different things but I keep coming back to this one. Maybe because I have edited it and the others are still untouched? Could be...probably is *wink* I still have to edit the photos of the old Lucky Jim Gold Mine, Abandoned Fish Hatchery and Cabin, the 15lb Spring Salmon my Dad caught, a shipwreck and so many other goodies! It's amazing what you can see when you are off roading on overgrown parts of the island!




We had so much fun and plan to do a lot of camping this summer because the smiles above is really what summer is all about :)
