I love vacations

And so do the kids. On the way home from Penticton they were chanting "turn the truck around."
They of course cried when we left and I will admit I got a bit teary. It's nice to get home to our own bed, which is not full of sand, but it sucks leaving the fun of going to the beach everyday and having as much ice cream as I can.

We started the trip off with the Boston Pizza Jr. Triathlon. The kids did great. The Okanagan was freezing but our kids were troopers. This tri seemed very serious compared to the previous one they did. The water was soooo cold that when Taylor went to start the tri yesterday she freaked out. But she did it anyway.

The rest of the trip was filled with family time, friend time, beach time (not as much as we would have liked. The weather didn't cooperate the first week exactly as we had planned.), ice cream time ( I loves my ice cream), lots of BC fruit and I'm happy to report to big sickness. Our first day while traveling we had some poop issues and same kid puked in the used book store but after that all good.

All in all a great vacation. I really do wish we could go on vacation more often. I love how it brings our family closer.

Now we're back into the swing of things. And only a few weeks left till school starts.

Tell me about your summer vacations.

We sure did! What date did you leave? We left on Friday August 5. Were you guys camping or in tents? I am surprised we didn't run into each other!
