My brother got married last weekend and we made the drive up to Nelson to be a part of it. The ceremony was at a beautiful B&B by the water. It was nice to see the love that they have for one another and there was so much joy going around as everyone that loves them was over the moon happy that they found each other.

They did an awesome job planning the reception and it was a lot of fun! They had some really great ideas and made it fun for everyone, especially the children. Adrianah and her cousins had such a blast and I know they will remember it forever.
I'm so glad we were able to celebrate with them! I sure wish our families lived closer together.
This weekend is a long one as it's BC Day on Monday. Jason has Friday's off as well so it makes for a nice long weekend. These 4 days off couldn't have come soon enough. Jason has been working over time lately and has been traveling a lot as well. He and I are burnt out for sure. We normally get a nice 3 week vacation every summer but there is just too much going on at his work right now for that kind of time off. So needless to say we have been milking this long weekend for all it's worth!
We ventured to the beach on Friday and weren't sure how long we would be able to stay (Landon usually determines how long we stay anywhere), but it couldn't have gone better! Landon had a nice long nap on Jason in the shade while Adrianah and I built sandcastles. We even had time to build a moat around our castle. Actually I was the one building the sandcastle while Adrianah danced around in the water pretending to be a princess.
After Landon and Jason woke up we spent time as a family splashing in the water together. It was so nice! We don't normally get to have moments like this so Jason and I were very grateful. It was the kind of day I have longed for. The kind that I imagine and envy other families having. For a little while it felt like there wasn't anything different about our family. It was just a typical family day at the beach.
We are only half way through this long weekend and I am looking forward to what the next 2 days have in store. Church, sunshine, pool time, friends, wine, and a cricket match. =)
