A Break From Fernie – Everyone Needs It Once In A While

Rod, Phoenix and I took off to Ontario for a little over a week to introduce our little one to our families and we had a fabulous time. We also enjoyed getting out of the GTA to spend quality time with the Brink family at a cottage. I was reminded once again how beautiful Ontario is with it’s beautiful lakes and landscapes. We were also reminded of 401 traffic and hot and humid summer days – no thanks.

Here are a few favorite photos from our travels.

Our flight home was extended about 5 hours due to weather conditions in Calgary (we found ourselves in Kelowna with very little baby food and a few hours of uncertainty of how we’d get home) but we made it home in one piece and with very little fussiness so I can’t really complain. Phoenix was a star on every flight we took. She was smiling at everyone and everyone smiled right back. HUGE success!

One little note though – our success in flying with Phoenix was playing the distraction game. I’m not sure what we would have done without Cheerios.
