Summer Lovin’ Vancouver 2018
Adventuring, exploring, beaching….wait that’s not a word!
When it’s summer in Vancouver, make THE MOST OF IT because it is fleeting. Like when you’re driving on the road + you see a griffin flying overhead. Fleeting. It is the most glorious season (imho) in the Pacific Northwest. I never want it to end. EVER!!!!!
Okay, do my children know how to smile for the camera? They look like scowling members of the Peaky Blinders ready to get into fisticuffs at any given moment. My spawn.
My favorite part of the museum is learning about life in the community. In the early days there was no road access to the mine + it could only be accessed by boat. Fascinating! Here’s the Copper Queen in all her glory.
And of course the gold panning is the icing on the top! It was a very hot day + Clementine insisted on diaper only! It was kind of shocking how many dirty looks I received. Give it a rest, you prudes!
Langdon was REALLY into carrying this bale of fur pelts. I mean, look at his face. DETERMINED to get those furs to the traders. He does not joke around when it comes to his pelts. Hudson’s Bay Company, please sponsor my young son.
Clementine wearing calico + a bonnet = MY DREAM.
Langdon reciting a declaration in full dress uniform.
As you can see, after five years of living in the PNW I am still in denial of summer ending. When will I adapt???
I was sick with worry that Langdon would be clutching to my leg in tears, wailing at me to not leave him at school. Folks, he could have cared less! He was like YEAH BYE MOM!!! And to my surprise, I didn’t shed tears either! We were both ready. Oh I love my Lang. And he loves school. How fantastic is life?
Alright, for now I bid you adieu. But check in for the next installment of FALL IN VANCOUVER + HALLOWEEN!!!
