As I’m sure you noticed in my Life Lately post.. accepting this move to Ontario was a hard pill to swallow. I really just did not want to go, we had put so much thought and time into the neighbourhood we chose, the home we picked, and the additions to the home to make it ours. BUUUTT, the one decent thing about selling our Vancouver home and leaving the city (currently anyways) is the real estate market, which is ABSURD if I must say so!!
We’re back!! What a trip! We were so excited to take off to Hawaii to spend some much needed time poolside and on the beach with our little family, but of course the stress of getting there in one piece weighted heavily on our minds!! Ben does not travel well! And not until recently connecting the dots.. I get motion sickness sooo it makes total sense that he could too! But we made it and as the title says we literally slept, ate, chilled on repeat and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
ALOHA! That’s right.. the time has finally come! We’re off to Honolulu today!! Seeing all of your beautiful holiday posts over these past couple of months has had me going through some serious vacay envy! With us moving soon, we didn’t think a family vacation was in the cards for us this year, buuutt we managed to make it work and we CAN. NOT. WAIT!!
Since moving to the Vancouver area, we’ve really tried to make a point of exploring what the beautiful West Coast has to offer. At least one of our summer vacations MUST be a visit to a neighbouring city or town. This weekend we had a wedding to attend in Pemberton and we thought, why not take this opportunity to spend a few days in Whistler!?
Out are the days of throwing together a couple outfits, the basic necessities and in the car we go now that we have two little ones. We’ve been on quite a few road trips to the Okanagan and surrounding areas of the West Coast since we’ve had our kids and with the number of times we have had to pull over because of a big poopy mess, forgotten something, and had to run into the closest store, it’s safe to say I’ve learned to make a list and pack well before heading out the door.
