A Canadian Goodbye…

Oh Canada! Our home and native land…

Sorry the insane amount of pictures. I couldn’t narrow them all down because I wanted my mom, dad and sisters to see them all. We all piled into my Dad’s big truck the other weekend and headed up to Ontario to say goodbye to my sister Carrie and her husband Joel. They decided to make the big move to British Columbia, so we went up to see Joel’s last show with his band and spend the weekend all together before they took off. While we were up there we got to see lots of cousins, Aunts and Uncles and my Grandparents too. Going up to Canada is always a jam packed weekend trying to fit everyone in but it is always so much fun. We got to eat at Cora’s right before we left which is always a crazy breakfast treat!! Mmmm so much fruit. Also, no trip home is complete with out lots and lots of candy from the bulk barn. Mmmmmmmm Smarties!

  1. Yay for Ontario!!! You successfully went to Bulk Barn, mad props, i’ll bet you got some good deals, especially the smarties! Win!
    You guys all look so happy and adorable! Schmea

    Unfortunately, we’re experiencing a little bit of “Junuary” here in Vancouver, but I’m sure BC will give your sibs some sunshine and love very soon <3

  9. Glad you enjoyed your time with family. Now that we don’t live close to family anymore I totally appreciate any visits we get. My husband used to go-kart full time so I’m all too familiar with go-karting tracks =)

  13. Such happy photos and a beautiful family! And I love the white polka dot dress you’re wearing! I think I’ve seen it on your blog before. Where’s it from?

  14. wonderful pictures! man, I miss Cora’s breakfasts, & bulk barn! it’s little things like that you miss when you move to a new country. Cora’s cinnamon brioche french toast is the greatesttt.
    it’s so lovely that you’re still close enough to see your family. you’re all so cute together. 🙂

  15. awww, these pics made me smile. especially the one with rowan looking so excited at the cars and the one with her in the round sunnies. 🙂 thanks for sharing.
