Spring Break ends


Our spring break trip back to Canada felt like a whirlwind of activity; catching up with friends, tying up loose ends and getting a good dose of unseasonably cold Kootenay mountain air. 

We tried to make a point to really relax while we were back and not feel the pressure to try and do too much. Robin was more successful at this, enjoying lazy mornings with Oso Negro coffee in hand, some great quality lunch and dinner dates with friends and even managed to fit in a stress free firing of his wood kiln. 

I inevitably tried to accomplish 101 things all on the last day of course, but was able to catch up with many friends and loved ones during the other four days we were home. 

Even Isla and Roscoe had their fair share of playdates and it was a good thing we packed all our winter wear since the temperatures were colder than normal for this time of year, but at least the sunshine was aplenty.  

Many thanks to my sister and her family for letting us take over their home while they were down in sunny Mexico. We sadly missed them this trip back, but are grateful to have had a familiar home to go back to.
