before our time in victoria, we spent a quick weekend in whistler, british columbia, canada. and the entire time, we were like, wow this place is crazy beautiful. i’m so glad we detoured there for a couple days to see it! i actually didn’t take the camera out too much during our weekend, and we kept it pretty low key as we adjusted to the time change, but i did bring it with us when we visited alta lake one day and i’m glad i did because i love these photos (and the video too) a lot. we spent most of the day right beside the water, and the kids couldn’t get enough of the little fish swimming around and tried to catch a few in their buckets and give them names before releasing them again into the water. below is a little video we made and then a few photos we took during our day there.
when they have tiny paddles for your canoe! these guys were in heaven getting to participate by helping papa paddle the canoe!
the surroundings were breathtaking. the water was insanely clear and the trees and mountains were so green. it was beautiful.
everyone wanted in the lake! haha! everyone but me.
eleanor and samson took some pretty darling photos with their little cameras while we were here. it’s so fun to just stand back and not direct them in any way and just watch them pick up the camera occasionally and snap something they want to remember. i really love seeing the world through their eyes.
this photo breaks my heart just a bit since this was one of my last weeks nursing conrad, and as of now, he is officially weaned. it’s so different for every woman and little one, but for me, i loved my experiences breastfeeding my kiddos and part of me misses it terribly already. i’m thankful i was able to have a positive experience with it, and also that my kids were as well. and now that it’s over with C, he suddenly seems so much bigger and older and definitely not little anymore. it’s so bittersweet.
hey whistler, you are a beautiful place! we loved visiting you! have a great weekend, everyone!
