Going to my happy place

So much for a blogging break..I realize now that I love to journal my life....

With all the sadness around me, today we decided to head out to my happy place....

Grand Beach.

Remember the old cabins? They are now gone. In its place is this....
The expected completion date is August 1st! The thought of actually having it done this summer makes me smile and smile and smile. It's a beautiful cabin, my parents have put serious thought into the floor plan and overall construction. It will be a home away from home, year round!

After some chit chat with the journeymen (who were twin boys by the way, how cool!) We headed to the beach. The water was chilly but that does not stop these die hards (ie: Cole, Tim and I) from jumping in! Beach weather... in April... in Winnipeg? WOW!

Kyle was toted around, as usual...(PS: he is not as fussy my friends....I figured him out! I'll blog about it soon!)

Luke? He chilled in silence...sucking on his usual.

As for me? I watched my family. I watched them run, jump, laugh and smile. I soaked up the sun and for the first time in days, I exhaled.


  1. Awesome! So glad you had a good day, you deserve it. That cabin, er I mean, house, is going to be fantastic!

    LOVE that last photo - have you made your photo wall yet? That one needs a place on there!

  2. I love that you could recognize what you needed and be able to do it. Those moments are precious when you are surrounded by sadness. I am so sorry your aunt has turned so quickly. As we get older I think we feel the losses even more deeply. It's a hard place to be in our lives when we start to lose the people who have been with us our whole lives.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, love Joanne
