32 & 33/52

Time away means two weeks in one post...
Week 32
"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2017"

Jackson & Lily: Both pics are from Neil's iPhone. He and the kids went away without me and then we all met to attend a wedding on the weekend. Jackson spent a week in Vancouver without us, meeting Neil on the 2nd to attend the Kendrick Lamar concert. Prior to that, Lily and Neil were in Whistler for some sightseeing and to pick up some new turntables.I'm grateful Neil got a couple shots for me while they were gone.  

Week 33

Jackson: The reading is totally forced right now but he's doing it and actually enjoying the book I picked. I think it helps that I just finished it and can discuss it with him.

Lily: We had a great morning the other day picking blueberries as big as her eyes. Many were sampled before our bucket got filled.

Jackson: I took this photo the evening he got he braces put on. He wasn't keen to smile. I expect there will be a lot less teeth showing in pics of my boy for the next year. 

Lily: I took her and a couple of her girlfriends for an overnighter in the Vancouver. We went to Playland on the first day and had the most fabulous time. Lily LOVES rides in particular the swings!!!

Jackson & Lily: Enjoying gorgeous Heisholt Lake on Texada. We decided to go regardless of the ugly weather and ended up with the entire place to ourselves for the most part. Pure bliss, rain and all!

Jackson & Lily: Both of them got to experience new things this week. Jackson tried and loved paddleboarding (using a friend's board) and now desperately wants one of his own. Lily went sailing with some friends and is very keen to go again.  I'm so grateful for their love of adventure.

Sunday on Savary

Savary is pure magic, ocean beach snakes included!!! The minute you step off the dock onto the island, your cares float away. We spent a fabulous day there on Sunday with friends who had rented a cabin for the week in an outstanding spot on the south side. We visited, ate, had some lovely beverages and went to the beach and had a swim. Unlike any other time before, we rented scooters and bombed around all our favourite places.  Who knew how much fun it would be?!?! The smiles didn't leave our faces. We all can't wait to return and do it all over again.
