Back from Vacation!

We arrived home yesterday from what is becoming our annual road trip to Alberta. It feels great to be back! It's a three day drive each way...which proved to be very difficult for my almost 2 year old. We had fun spending time with my family and being out in the country for a few days!

We celebrated Z's birthday while we were there...he will be two on Thursday! What happened to my baby??

The kids love being on the farm...and no trip to the farm is complete without a tractor ride! They even get to take their pick of which one to ride...."Johnny Tractor" or "Big Red". Z was terrified of Johnny....I guess a huge machine like that can be intimidating.

Picking strawberries was L's highlight of the trip. We weren't sure if we would be able to do it this year, as the strawberry farm recently got hit with a terrible hail storm. But fortunately, the nice strawberry lady let us come pick whatever we could find before she mowed the plants to prep them for next year. We got four icecream pails worth...SO tasty!

One of the highlights for me was getting to take my almost 90-year-old grandpa out for lunch. (That's him next to my mom). I still laugh to myself when I think about how he was showing L how old he is by using his fingers. It was nice to see that even though he is getting older, he still has a sense of humor!

I took quite a few more pictures which I will try to post later this week. Now that I'm home the reality that school starts in two weeks has hit me like a brick. So much work, so little time. Can't believe my little girl is going to Kindergarten!
