On Vacation

It has been such a busy summer for us so far I have totally been neglecting my little blog.

After the kids finished two weeks of Pedalheads bike lessons we packed Laila and Hayden off to the Grandparents place in Gibsons, British Columbia.  They have been here since July 21st and had a fantastic 2 weeks here on their on.

It was Laila's first ever plane ride and she had a great time.  They flew Westjet and once they landed in Vancouver the pilot took the kids to the cockpit to have a look around.  Laila is still talking about that.

While the kids were away Faruq took a week of vacation and we worked from morning until night at home on various projects that we just can't seem to get done when they are around.  It was a very productive time for us but we were exhausted by the end of it.  When he returned to work it left just Sophie and I home on our own.  It was so wonderful to have just her home with us as we never get to spend any one-on-one time with her.

We left last Friday for BC and had a quick overnight stop in Kamloops before heading to the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.  It was so hot here the day we arrived but has finally broke today.  It is somewhat seasonal now and I find it quite enjoyable.

Faruq returned to Calgary on Sunday and is back to work for another two weeks.   When he returns we are planning to take a week away and head down to Seattle and then onto beautiful Victoria for a few days.  When we return to the Sunshine Coast we will only have a few days then we need to get back to reality and return to Calgary as school starts at end of August for Hayden.  The girls don't go until September 4th.

I say if every year but I don't know where summer goes.  We wait all year for these two months and they go by so quickly.  It makes me very sad.

I have lots of pictures of our holidays so far but they will have to wait until another post as my camera is in the van and I'm too lazy to go get it.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer !!
