    Saskatchewan’s Lighthouse | Cochin, Saskatchewan

    For my birthday last week my wish was to go on a little day trip and see a place in Saskatchewan that I’d never been. I chose Cochin, to see Saskatchewan’s only lighthouse. If you know anything about Saskatchewan, you know we are a land locked province, so the idea of a lighthouse is kind of . . . pointless. This one was built in the village of Cochin as a tourist attraction, and while it is nowhere near the ocean, it is right between two lakes; Jackfish Lake and Murray Lake. We were lucky that last Wednesday was also really the first warm day we’ve had here all year…

    Candle Lake, Saskatchewan

    Last week went spent a few days up at Candle Lake (about a two hour drive north from where we live). We joined Jared’s parents, sister and brother-in-law and our nephew and two nieces and spent a couple days camping together. I hadn’t been at Candle since I was young, I’m pretty sure we stayed there for a night or two before my brother was born -so sometime before I turned seven. The cabin that we stayed in way back then is still standing and looks pretty run down but the lake itself is still beautiful. On Monday the weather was not very warm but nice enough for the kids…

    Waskesiu {2013}

    Last year we all went up to Waskesiu for the weekend to celebrate my grandparents’ 50th anniversary and a couple Saturday’s ago we packed up the van (complete with our gluten-free food) and headed out to Waskesiu for another get together with my Dad’s side of the family. We left pouring rain but we could see blue skies in the distance and by the time we arrived in Waskesiu we were greeted with sunshine. I didn’t bring my camera along but did get a couple of shots from the day with my phone. This was my absolute favorite part of the day. Jared, Raeca, Delten, my Mom and I rented out these…

    salmon arm, bc

    Here we go, the last photos of our trip! I’ve decided next time I go away I need to blog about it while I am there because it’s already been two months since we’ve been back! On the bright side, it is just as beautiful two months later as I remember it. Seriously, if you are ever in the Okanagan area I definitely recommend going to Salmon Arm. The day we got into Salmon Arm we checked out the Farm Market, Raeca loved it, that little girl would love living in the farm. Well, maybe, she liked looking at the animals but didn’t like it when they came close, even…

    Revelstoke & Sicamous, BC

    We’ve been back from our trip for over a month and I still have photos to share, I think I am postponing sharing them all because looking at them reminds me of the days when it was warm and sunny, as opposed to the cold and snow we are dealing with now. On our way to Revelstoke we stopped at the Giant Cedar Boardwalk Trail. The name pretty much sums it up, it was a nice little stop along the way. This photo is a re-creation of one that we have of Delten when he was 4 or 5 and he was posed like this next to a dinosaur, he…

    Golden, BC

    Last month we went with my family to bring my brother out to Bible school in BC, we were able to take a couple days and make a little trip out of it. I always enjoy going through the mountains but at the same time I have a slight fear of them, maybe I am more of a prairie girl than I like to admit. The first day we drove something like 10 hours to Golden, BC. I have good memories from that town from the last time we had been there 8 or 9 years ago, let’s just say the rodeo was so good it left my brother wanting…
