salmon arm, bc

    Here we go, the last photos of our trip! I’ve decided next time I go away I need to blog about it while I am there because it’s already been two months since we’ve been back! On the bright side, it is just as beautiful two months later as I remember it. Seriously, if you are ever in the Okanagan area I definitely recommend going to Salmon Arm. The day we got into Salmon Arm we checked out the Farm Market, Raeca loved it, that little girl would love living in the farm. Well, maybe, she liked looking at the animals but didn’t like it when they came close, even…


    Revelstoke & Sicamous, BC

    We’ve been back from our trip for over a month and I still have photos to share, I think I am postponing sharing them all because looking at them reminds me of the days when it was warm and sunny, as opposed to the cold and snow we are dealing with now. On our way to Revelstoke we stopped at the Giant Cedar Boardwalk Trail. The name pretty much sums it up, it was a nice little stop along the way. This photo is a re-creation of one that we have of Delten when he was 4 or 5 and he was posed like this next to a dinosaur, he…


    Golden, BC

    Last month we went with my family to bring my brother out to Bible school in BC, we were able to take a couple days and make a little trip out of it. I always enjoy going through the mountains but at the same time I have a slight fear of them, maybe I am more of a prairie girl than I like to admit. The first day we drove something like 10 hours to Golden, BC. I have good memories from that town from the last time we had been there 8 or 9 years ago, let’s just say the rodeo was so good it left my brother wanting…


    saskatchewan, alberta & bc

    Last week we took a little trip to BC to bring my brother to Bible school, if you have never had the chance to go to through the Rocky Mountains I suggest you plan a trip right now. Maybe it is because I live in the flat prairies but I always thoroughly enjoy the mountains. While we were driving I mostly took photos with my phone so I thought I would share our journey to British Columbia . . . Leaving Saskatoon, wahoo! An example of that flat prairie land: Entering Alberta . . . Right photo is entering the Alberta badlands: I see mountains! I’ve got lots more photos (and stories, oh boy…


    A Trip to the Market

    It seems I am still digesting all the lessons I learned from our trip to Uganda in February. We’ve been back for six months and I feel like I am still learning. One day on our trip Michelle needed to go to the local market to buy some new shoes for the boys at the home (either the shoes were cheaply made or those kids were rough with their shoes). I decided to go along with her and made the mistake of forgetting my camera, I regret that decision to this day. At the market we wandered down one of the aisles until we came to a stand that sold…


    fun, laughter & mosquitoes

    Each week Jared and I get to spend some time with some awesome grade 9 & 10 kids and this last weekend we were able to hang out at Torch Trail Bible Camp with 15 of them. Lots of fun, laughs, ketchup and mustard wars, and LOTS of mosquito bites. A few snapshots from the weekend: What did you do on the weekend? with love, Chantel
