Penticton Vacation Part 3 of 3

This is the final Penticton Post.  Sorry that there are a lot of pictures but there were just so many good ones I wanted to share.
 
So...where were we?  ah yes, back at the beach!

Ally buried in the sand by Erica and Abs
Sand up the nose! sand up the nose!
Ian came and helped bury Abs
Big sandy smile
A nice shot of Mama and boy having a snack
And then there's Syd! Love it!

On Tuesday we went to Fairview Mountain for our Annual Gallimore vs Honeychurch match.  The Gallimores won!  Pa and I beat up on Al and Steve.  Great course, great golf and great company!

I think this is a little glimpse of the future when Abs and Ally are babysitting the rest of the crew! Those girls are growing up WAY too fast!
 
On Tuesday evening we went for a big Family dinner to Salty's on Lake Okanogan.  After dinner we took a bunch of Family pictures on the beach.

One thing we love doing in Penticton is going down the cannel.  It runs from Lake Okanogan to lake Skaha.  The entire length of Penticton.  It takes just over an hour to do and is so much fun!  The kids just love letting the current take them down the cannel.

Good job Ally!  Let's see a burn out!

Cool girls
 
And finally, the last pic from Penticton 2013.  It is a sad, but kinda funny pic.  On the way home Steve and Sue blew a tire on their trailer.  We stopped to help them change the tire and just as we stop Abby pukes all over the truck.  So Chrissy cleans up puke while we change the tire and fix up Steve's trailer.  I am happy to say all is good, trailer and Abby are just fine!
 
Steve with his duct taped up trailer!!!
 
What a fantastic 2 weeks! The weather was amazing and we got to have a lot of fun relaxing and playing in the Okanogan.  Only 339 days till Penticton 2014
 
Stay tuned for pics from Calaway Park...
