During the middle two weeks in July we took our annual family vacation to the Okanogan and set up shop in Penticton. We towed our trailer in stopping on Valemount on the way there. Once there we enjoyed two awesome weeks with beautiful weather. An awesome vacation. This year was a little different because a lot of the crew were over in Europe so it was basically us and the Russells. We had a great time! Here are a bunch of pictures from our trip:

Sometimes they love each other
