A big part of this trip was to include reconnecting with familiar faces as i most often do when i return to my home town but this time coincided with my 20 year grad reunion! ack. i am happy to say that we are all as gorgeous and young as we always have been. haha! So fun to see all those beautiful genes passed on to the wee ones too.
all of these edited photos are credited to Tracey and her kids. This big smile shot makes me laugh and think of our moms who planned for us to have braces together;

a couple of many goofy shots sent home to papa;
heading back next week for more love, sunshine, SUP and peaches!
while it was ideal to have our own space to retreat to across the way at the neighbors we looked forward to spending our days with family, friends and neighbors. My sister’s little family came out for a few days, my childhood babysitter stopped in, i met my brother’s little boy, neighbors came for dinner, various friends met up with us down at the beach and papa bear flew out to meet us for the final weekend and the road trip back home. it was just the right amount of time each alone, together and with others.
i interrupt the documentation of our 5 part summer vacation in the Okanagan to acknowledge month’s end. August has been so very full of all good things and fun events and we have been in good health to take it all in!
sweet celebrating with our friends A&R. xo;
pie party to celebrate B’s last day of 5+years at the cafe – 11 pies to send her onward onto mat leave;
we were invited to the PI that i have often heard talk of and it’s more charming and beautiful than i imagined;
