our trip to waskesiu

Hello friends and hello summer!!

Last weekend Geoffrey and I took the children to Prince Albert National Park. Apart from going there last year, it’s something that we used to do every June for our anniversary until we became parents. Once we had Remy, we stopped going camping.

This marks our second summer in a row in Waskesiu, and I think that it’s a tradition that we are going to keep up again. Everyone truly loves it. Last year we went as a family of four in our renovated tent trailer. This year we went as a family of five at stayed at Elk Ridge Lodge. Oh. My. Goodness. It was beyond beautiful. It reminded me more of Colorado than Saskatchewan. The resort has a pool and water slide, two restaurants, spa, a zip line and rock wall, golf course, and more! I can’t ever see us staying anywhere else in the whole of the National Park.

Here are the pictures from our trip. I hope that you like them!

It’s always such an exciting time with the change of a new season. Summer is especially welcome on the prairies as it means there will be no cold or snow for several months. Um, yes please!

What are your plans for this summer? Do you have any vacations booked? Let me know.

And happy belated Father’s Day to the men out there!

remy is six

Tomorrow, our beautiful, smart, funny, social Remy girl will be 6 years old!!

We will always have a special place in our hearts for the one that made us parents and who taught us about parenthood. She is such a light in this world and we couldn’t be happier than to call her our daughter.

We love you, sweet girl! Happy birthday!

wilder is three!

Our sweet boy Wilder turns 3 years old today!

This last year was quite the challenge. It was filled with much independence and many tantrums. Lately, though, the days have been getting much easier and we can see him returning back to his usual happy and funny self. These terrible twos are almost a thing of the past!

He still loves all things vehicles, books, and doing anything that Remy is doing. He is also affectionate and likes constant company and to be carried around. He is very independent and prefers to tackle all new tasks and things on his own. Only if he can’t get it will he ask for help.

He loves to laugh and will try to get others to laugh as well, either by acting silly or telling jokes. He’s always up for anything. I am looking forward to seeing how he acts towards a new baby in the family!

We love our little brat more than anything. Happy Birthday Wilder!!

xoxo Mama

eleventh anniversary

Yesterday we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary.

As we are preparing to add another new life into our family, I can’t help but reflect on the early days of our relationship. Little did we know when we first started dating where our lives would lead us. In fact, we were planning on living very different lives. I was headed to Edinburgh, Scotland to undertake my Masters degree in Art History, and Geoffrey was finishing his last year of his BA at university.

We had planned on having a very new and very long distance relationship for the first year. However, I ended up not going, and that’s when we really began our lives together. We were quick to become engaged, buy our first place together (with the help of our parents), and then get married. Over the next 5 years, we travelled, worked hard, moved a few times, adopted a few animals, really got to know one another, and truly enjoyed just having one another.

These last 6 years have been all about our family. They’ve obviously been very different, but just as loving and enjoyable.

One never really knows how their life will turn out when they get married, and to me, that is just so fascinating. Hopefully it is for the better, and much comes from your marriage! But whether or not you choose to is completely up to you. I’m just thankful that I did, and we did together.

Happy anniversary, Geo. Pictures were taken by Oarsman Photography.
