Maia at the Lavender Farm

Just another wee tiny snack to tide us over until the main lunch course arrives. This was a surprise as we thought the snack was lunch....

At Quail's Gate Winery, waiting (again darn it) for the appetizers to arrive

Cycling over the wooden trestle bridges of the Kettle Valley Railroad. If you don't know what the KVR is, look it up. It's a cool story.

World's Largest Dandelion (tm)

At another desert winery. Do you think they were expecting us?

This was fresh wine in the barrels. It smelled sooo good

Maia's 7th Birthday!

Maia had a great 7th birthday at her grandparents pool. Several of her friends and their families joined us for fun in the sun and a bbq - it was a lovely, relaxing day. Maia even got her longed for unicycle!

Maia's First Day of Grade Two

The grade two class is housed in the old one-room school house - which seems oddly appropriate for Maia...
