The weather was perfect for the family barbecue! My sister and brother-in-law had organized it all - they truly have the gift of hospitality. It was great to see my brother and his dear wife, as well as some, but unfortunately not all, the nieces and nephews and their little ones! What a wonderful family! What a busy place - with watching the little ones at play and enjoying their food and having wonderful conversation - catching up on everyone's lives! God is good!
Oh, what a adorable children - each one of them.
We relaxed and had a lot of fun!
Harrison Hot Springs is always a fantastic day-trip
whenever we head down to Chilliwack.
This is a pic of my hubby and my sister standing beside me!
Brother-in-law was taking the pictures.
Enjoyed that Italian Gelato!
Just one view of the Harrison Hotsprings Hotel!
What gorgeous, relaxing surroundings!
At a different time of year there are
sand sculptures done right
on the beach.
A magnificent display of creativity.
The weather was pleasant, some days a little overcast, a welcome relief from the heat wave they had the week prior to our coming. Except for a brief visit to the emergency department to see why my ankle was terribly swollen, everything was so wonderful!!
Everything checked out ok,
and everything seems back to normal here at home.
Yes, I've been elevating my feet and taking it easy!
It's back to work on Tuesday.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
Lots of love to you all,
