a week of fun

We just enjoyed a fun week away visiting friends and family, camping and exploring. The trip started with a visit to the Enchanted Forest near Revelstoke.

There is now a great new park there called Skytrek Adventures. Zara loved the ropes course!

 Drivng through the Rockies was amazing! It's been years since I did that drive and was just in awe of the beauty all around! This is Emerald Lake near Field, B.C.

After a wonderful (but too quick) visit with Katherine and her family, we headed south to my cousin's ranch. It was a little piece of paradise!

We spent a morning enjoying the scenery and our family while riding in a beautiful wagon pulled by a team of gorgeous white horses.

Zara fell in love with a horse named Jed, who she rode all the way out and back.

We stopped for a snack and a break and Zara just couldn't stay away from Jed!

From there we headed back across the Rockies to Wasa Lake and Fort Steele. Of course we had to stop at the world's biggest dump truck!

This was our first trip to Fort Steele but it definitely won't be our last! We all loved it!

Helping make ice cream! It was good!

Our last stop was Osoyoos - a place so close to home but one that we haven't explored. This was at Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre. I LOVE the rammed earth building!

A fun time was had by all!
