The Trip I Missed...

...blogging about. We actually took this trip in mid-August, but things were so busy right after that I didn't blog about this particular trip.

So here are the details!

Where: Gordon's Bay Campground, Cowichan Lake, BC

With: Two very special families. Between us, there were six adults, six kids (a boy and girl per couple), and one pooch (ours).

Special Mention: "Sparky," a brand new electric car driven by our friends Derek and Sarah, who recently launched a new family adventure based on making saving the environment fun! Read Sarah's inspiring blog here:

First, we had to put Bing on the ferry (she attracted lots of admirers!):

Then we had to find our perfect spot in the woods and set up camp. 

Pssst! I see an adorable camper playing hide and seek with the tents!

After that, we headed to the lake for a quick play before dinner.

Time for some chillaxin'!!

The sun came out again on Day Two and gloried up our swimming spot.

Beautiful British Columbia!

What could be a better end to a tri-family camping trip, than lunch at a 1950s diner? At the fabulous J&V's Burgers and Pizza, the milkshakes are as good as they come and the music rocks back to the good 'ole days. The only thing I forgot to pack was my poodle skirt!!

My pals.

Milkshakes taste so much better when shared with my special guy.

Next summer, we'll do it all again. Right gang?


  1. What a beautiful location! I haven't ventured into BC for quite a while, but may have to do so now that we've got a trailer too. I love visiting Canada.

    1. Hope you get a chance, Anne! Now I'm looking up websites about Whidbey Island and dreaming....

  2. It was great seeing pictures of the camping trip, Adrienne, it reminded me of how much fun we had! Thanks for the blog mention - I finally posted something new for the end of Food I just have to work on getting Energy Month off the ground. Love reading about your glamping adventures - still hope to find one for us one day!

  3. It was really fun! I have more pictures of all the kids, but I didn't want to put your little guys on my blog without your permission. I'll send you copies of those pictures--there are some great ones!
    You will find a glamper one day! In the meantime, you can glamp the "Tent Ma-hal." :)

  4. Beautiful trip for all of you. It is so great to be making these memories for your children.
