Five on Friday - July 5, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had a great week! We are enjoying a busy week of family time, so sorry for the impromptu lack of posts around here (I had some stuff planned and just got super busy!)


We are currently on vacation in Penticton visiting family! Last weekend for the Canada Day weekend we were in Edmonton for a basketball tournament so we had one day to reset and repack to leave for BC. It's been a fun; but, busy week! 


The coolest thing about this week so far has to be going on The Pipe Mountain Rollercoaster in Revelstoke, BC this week! We decided for our 8+ hour drives out to the Okanagan that we would stay overnight and do some fun stops along the way, because road trips with toddlers are not the funnest things! So, we stayed in Revelstoke and rode the Gondola and the mountain rollercoaster - what a fun ride and amazing experience! 


Another highlight of the drive to B.C. through the mountains is the Enchanted Forest - it's the beautiful nature walk with all these fun little nursery rhymes and fairy tale creatures. This used to be my favourite stop as a child and I just love taking Damian and Elliott whenever I can so I can watch them enjoy it too! 


Last weekend in Edmonton was a blast; but, also super busy! Damian played in a tournament all weekend and we had lots of basketball to watch! But, we also got in a family visit and time at West Edmonton Mall! Elliott loved the rides! 


And, because he loved the rides, it makes the fact that we just booked tickets to Disneyland in September/October that much more exciting! We've been contemplating a trip soon and we found really great flight deals and hotels so we couldn't resist! Are we totally crazy for taking a 2 1/2 year old?! I think it will be both crazy and so much fun! 

I hope you all have a great weekend and I'm hoping to get some posts written soon; but, since I am enjoying time with my family it might be a little slow for the next week too!
