I apologize for being such a negligent blogger. It has been a busy week. It started with Bennett's physio, then him getting sick, followed by a very quick trip to the hospital (we left because it was too busy), a visit to his family doctor (who prescribed antibiotics for bronchitis) and a 5 day long camping trip - oh yeah - and a quick stop at a family reunion.
So we're home now and Bennett is feeling much better. For a while he sounded like an old man with his horrible cough and rough voice. I, however, am now sick. Regardless, we had a great camping trip - our first of the year. We travelled to Chutes Provincial Park - it's a nice little park and also happens to be the place where I used to work and hope to return to at some point.
Bennett enjoyed himself quite a bit - he slept well except for last night. Jim and I pushed him around the park in his stroller at 11pm and again at 1 am in a desperate attempt to calm him down. It was cool and we were tired but the stars were beautiful.
I've added a few pictures and a video of the falls - aren't they amazing? The water is really high this year and it makes for great viewing.
Oh yeah - HAPPY CANADA DAY! I'm not one to wear my patriotism on my sleeve but I feel very proud and privileged to live in such a beautiful country. I hope everyone one enjoys the day.
