Westward ho!

Last week we returned home from a wonderful three-week stay in BC. I absolutely loved our time out there. BC is so beautiful in the spring-time! Fresh and green and gentle, it was the perfect time to be there. And the splendour of nature aside, we also had two weddings to attend so that made it an even more ideal time to visit. We enjoyed staying at mom and dad’s place again. Their home remains the hub of the Schutte family, and there always seemed to be someone popping in for this or that – so fun!

I didn’t end up taking too many photos of our stay, unfortunately. But here are a few from our weeks there. The first bunch are from visits to the River House:

I absolutely love this next photo! I’m planning to print and frame it.

Our little Alice Genevieve is growing up. She’s already eight months old and just started waving and clapping this week! She loves having little toys to play with and watching her siblings goof off around her.

And a few pictures from life at mom and dad’s:

This is a pretty terrible photo light-wise, but I love how it shows how much Zara loved being around Alice! She found her soooo interesting! I think she’s going to be over the moon when your next little one arrives, Renae! 🙂

A few photos of us on the morning of Colin and Karli’s wedding day (June was the flower girl!).

After getting her hair done (thanks Renae!):

That little thumb reminds me she’s still a little girl, fancy dress notwithstanding.

We are home again and enjoying our familiar surroundings here, though I must admit I’m having a bit of a post-trip slump – just feeling kinda blue and lonely these days after all the camaraderie and gezelligheit out west.

Maybe editing some wedding photos will help?! 🙂

One thought on “Westward ho!

  1. It was so nice having you guys out. I felt like, for the first time, I really got to see June’s personality. She is awesome…such a fun and spunky girl. And Alice…oh Alice. I could just eat her up. She is so content and sweet. Skype is wonderful, but it’s so different than interacting with them in person, and I loved being able to do that with your kids (and you guys, of course :). Zara definitely loved on Alice…I have a few pictures of it too 🙂 James looks so handsome in the pictures for Colin’s wedding. Pretty sweet to hit 2 family weddings in one visit ♥.
