Introducing: Lily Elsianna Hope Reeves

This past weekend we had the honor of meeting this little sweetie, Lily (born April 13th). Even though we had a quick visit, it was wonderful to see the Reeves family as a new foursome.

Growing Families

It was our pleasure to host a playdate/visit for our friends: The Hansens, The Hills & The Craigs on Saturday. The kids are almost outnumbering us with a 8:8 ratio (we were missing Brendan). It was wonderful to see everyone and their growing families. Cory was a baby hog the whole time!
The guys and their little ones: Scott & Mathew, Cory & Scarlett, Cam & Charlie, Adam & Jackie

The gals: Tara, Laurie, me & Jenny

May Long Weekend Camping

We had a great time camping at Mount Kidd in Kananaskis this past weekend. It was our first trip of the season with our RV and thankfully it sheltered us from all the crazy weather...we had everything from sunshine, to rain, to snow. We enjoyed being together as a family and indulging in camping life...ya know, campfires, sleeping in, smores, morning coffee outside, jiffy pop, being carefree & outdoors all day. We had a wonderful time camping with our friends: The Craigs, The Macdonalds, The Hills & The Foleys and hope to do it again soon! I had fun capturing our trip with my new camera, here are some favorite photos (more to come soon):
