The cabin with the Korstroms

Our friends invited us to spend the weekend with them at the Shuswap. We had a really nice time.
Here's the weekend in photos and a few words.

Both Hudson and Cooper really enjoyed hanging with little Carter. He provided the cuteness factor this weekend for sure, and also lots of laughs.

Julie and I headed up to the Celista Winery with a few of the kids to explore a little. There were horses there and that proved to be very delightful, especially to Katie who definitely has a thing for horses. :)

It looks like Taggart thinks that petting Katie's back is maybe safer than getting too close to the horse.

It's hard to get a photo of this girl without the camera in her face. Would she say the same about me??

Some game playing was definitely done this weekend. This beautiful deck with the view of the lake was a perfect backdrop.

Friends helping friends.

A little crafting.

S'mores around a fire was a must.

Again with the camera.

A hike to the waterfalls. This was worth the effort to get there, and an effort it was. The drive to the beginning of the hike was almost an hour. We were in our truck and Derek and Julie were in there van ahead of us. We were rapidly running out of gas and the further we drove up this gravel road the further we would have to come back. Finally, Tony decided we had to stop or we would not have enough gas to return. Now what?? Well, apparently a mini van can hold 11 people (and about 150 mosquitos) so we continued on our journey with our truck parked safely on the side of the gravel road awaiting our return. Like I said, the waterfall hike was worth it and we returned to our truck an hour or two later with the hopes of making it back to civilization before we came to a sputtering stop. An hour or so later, the Tempo Gas sign was finally in our sights and we were able to fill up with out any further adventures.

The lake.

These little guys had their own little set up going for every meal. Nice time with friends.

Is this face because she is tired of being surrounded with cameras?? One in front and one behind.

This face wraps up the weekend. Thanks Korstroms, for a great weekend!
