Saskatchewan trip

The whole Davis family, including Wes headed off to Saskatchewan for a short visit. We went all the way to the eastern edge of the province, and we made many stops along the way. In fact our first pee break was in Strathmore!

Jon and Cindy have been asking us for ages to come to their cabin. So we finally made the trek. Jon took us out on the lake in his boat the kids showed us their knee boarding skills. Gavin agreed to give it a try (much to his parents shock). He didn't get up on his knees but he hung on well and did a great job. Bronwyn was most emphatic about the fact that she did not want to do it. Mari did want to try but Uncle Jon refused to let her until she could swim better.

The following day we back tracked and drove to Fort Qu'Appelle  for a family reunion of sorts. I forgot my camera (well the one with a charged battery - ahem) so I have no pictures, but it was great fun. Gavin hit it off with Kellen my cousin Ian's oldest. Mari continues to talk about "that girl, you know the one who lives on the farm and has a broken arm." (AKA Aunt Mary)

We got home from that trip exhausted and determined never to leave home again. The kids loved being with Robbie and Carissa so it was a big hit and they are determined to go again. Yeah!

Yesterday we had the wonderful pleasure of a visit with Wes' niece Lilly. OH WHAT A CUTIE!! She is so unbelievably cute! We so appreciate their visit.

And now...

one more day before school starts. Sigh!

Just in case you thought that there were only Davis children in Jasper (and Banff).

Jasper trip

We have just returned from Jasper. We had a wonderful time. Our only sadness was that Daddy couldn't come with us, so we were a bit disappointed with that, but such is life.

Here are a few quick pictures - I took so many its hard to decide. We went with Mom and Dad again and I cannot say enough about what wonderful sports they were! Simply wonderful.

It is so great to see the kids enjoying a place where I spent so much of my childhood. Its quite a lovely feeling.

We are home now and very tired. Off to bed!
