Marc's parents came out for two weeks at the end of August on their inaugural trip as new retirees.
We went to Bear Creek for a couple of nights and for the most part had beautiful weather.
This child has started smiling. He is so smily and sparkly! I love it!
Making a fire on the beach. Zeke got lots of practise helping Papa husk corn, camping and on the deck.
Zekey went to town one morning with Daddy and Papa and posed with this statue at Harrison.
Our favourite spot
We did lots of projects while Marc's parents were here. One of them was staining our new picnic table.
Ty helped Marc space out our tiles for underneath our deck.
Ty had fun baking muffins with Nana.
Canning peaches. Nana did most of the work. I did some helping, some learning and some baby feeding.
Reading the manual on Grandma Rose's Canner.
Laundry . . . A project for another day. That's my motto! (Until Marc dumps all of it on the bed) ;)
Taken from our yard. Marc visiting with our neighbour Zoltan.
Ty went with Nana and Papa to visit their friends Norm and Jo. He built this tower with their lego while they were visiting.

Our cute bebe!
Meeting Ethan, Dave and Andrea's new addition:
The week before Nana and Papa came out, Brad, Raquel and Maria came out for a few days. We took the kids to this small amusement park at Cultus Lake. It was cheap, not long lines, no entry fee and kid sized rides. What more could you ask for?
Enjoying some My Little Pony to give the adults a break.
Hiking at the River
Marc and Brad got up at 5 and did a quick summit of Elk and were back for pancakes at 9.
