Home from Holidays.....





Well. we're home. Rob had the last two weeks of August off for his holidays. Holidays are really tough to pull off when you're a farmer. Luckily we were able to have someone do the 'bare necessities' on the farm so we could take a much needed break. We went to Osoyoos for 8 days. If you're not from around here then you won't know that Osoyoos is a desert area in British Columbia, Canada. It houses BC's warmest lake! The temp is usually in the mid 30's so its a very popular holiday destination. We pulled our 5th wheel up and enjoyed a nice, fun week. There are tons of fruit orchards around so we enjoyed lots of fresh fruit there and brought home 20 lbs of peaches which I've slowly been converting into cobbler, jam and pies.....

This was a first camping experience for our little man Isaac and he did great...such an easygoing little man. We usually manage to get up to Osoyoos at least once each summer and we're already looking forward to next year! We stayed at the Mk'Nip Native Indian Reserve campground. It has over 300 sites and lots of laundry, shower and store facilties. There's a cultural centre nearby and horse stables that offer daily rides.....but you have to be careful...it's rattlesnake territory! Luckily we had no run ins with snakes of any kind.
