Home from a lovely weekend. The entire weekend was delightful.
Highlights: Family, seeing everyone, little ones - having 7 little ones all about makes things even better, cherries - so many cherries, dogs running free, incredible food, the beach, the boat, tubing, incredible hosts, fresh blueberries, cold bevvies, relaxation... There is so much more to mention.
It really was a great weekend. Hugh and Sharon's place is so lovely - surrounded by so many different fruit trees, a cherry orchard in their front yard and so much peace and tranquility.
We all prepared meals together - and there were some lovely dishes. This was our second reunion and I am so excited to plan the next one, although we all decided that Summerland may need to be an annual get together.
We all rented a boat for the day on Saturday - I tubed - so MUCH FUN! Chris tried waterskiing for the first time. He did awesome! Got up the first try and lasted for about 20 seconds. We went around to pick him up - and he let us know that he popped his groin. OUCH. Poor guy. That wasn't so much fun for him. He's on to a quick recovery - let's hope.
Here are some pics of the weekend. If you haven't made a trip to the Okanagan before - you should do a road trip. I am already planning my next vacation.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. We are already one day down before the weekend - so enjoy it - the weekend will even be better.
I am on the hunt for what I can do with all of my cherries. If you have any ideas, please write.
