(**First off, thank you so much for all of your comments in the last post! Now you'll just have to see whose advice I take...ha ha!**)

Oh my goodness. So much fun over the last two days. I am so happy and so tired:) Whistler with my side of the family. The days have consisted of; exploring nature, hiking, geocaching, a whole lotta pool time, biking, seeing bears, and eating together. Good times.
{Brandywine Falls. Koen stayed asleep in the Ergo, so unlike him! Kai's `I'm totally not going to let you get a nice picture of me' face.}

{Murrin Lake Provincial Park}


{Lost Lake Loop where Maria led us power walking around it this morning:)}
{Kai is suddenly so comfortable in the water! He'll jump in (without a life jacket) and go under. He'll go down the waterslide on his own. He's working on his back float and swimming (with a life jacket). I'm so incredibly proud of him. He learned a valuable lesson that you must tell an adult when you are going down the waterslide without a life jacket as it's over his head.}
{Koen is fearless in the water and doesn't realize that he needs to make sure we're paying attention when he wants to jump in.}

{Our family takes up the whole pool. Please note the waterslide, it is Kai's highlight by far.}
{I think we found 3 geocaches so far...}
{We are staying at a beautiful place and each have our own suites which keeps us all from going crazy in the chaos:)}
{Giant family photo that kind of worked out?}
Thanks Dad and Joanne for such a great trip!
Bon nuit.


  1. What a great idea for a family weekend!

  2. What a fun weekend! I love that your boys are so comfortable in the water :)

  3. Looks awesome. Where did you guys stay?

  4. Wow! That looks like an amazing trip. There are some beautiful pictures of you.

  5. Looks like so much fun! I'm sure Koen will pull something that my brother once did... we were in Hawaii on a tsunami watch and up on the roof of the hotel and my brother who was 3 or 4 at the time jumped into the pool causing my mom to jump in fully clothed. He remembers nothing but the rest of us remember it very well :)

  6. so fun! I love Lost Lake. And I also love that picture of you & Gary!

  7. Looks SO fun! I love Whistler!

  8. Erin-it was Club Intrawest and we loved it!
