Around The House - Fall Edition

Can you believe we still have roses blooming? The little bee is stocking up on nectar for the fall

These flowers have done amazingly well this year, so vibrant and full.  (Last year at this time, these were dried up and shriveled)

We got a free clotheline from fortis BC a couple of weeks ago.  I finally had a chance to try it out over the weekend because it was so warm and sunny.  It works great and and of course Circus loves getting right into the thick of it.

Hopefully this was my last time raking grass until next year...

Finally caught Circus in a decent pose
And yes, we still have flowering zuchinni plants, in fact I just pulled another giant zuchinni out of there last night

Revelstoke Road Trip

While Luke's Mom was visiting we took a weekend road-trip to Revelstoke. The sole purpose was to get out and explore the gorgeous, snow-capped mountains that are only a few hours away from the Okanagan. It was a beautiful weekend, and the views certainly did not disappoint.

 We took some pictures at Rogers Pass, a popular tourist stop. Luckily for us we didn't have to worry about road-closures or avalanches at this time of year.

 We also stopped at a Ghost Town on the way, located in Three Valley Gap.  After discovering we had to pay to get inside, we took some pictures from afar and explored the cool old trains.

 I think it's kinda funny they paved the roads.... it just doesn't look right... although everything was immaculately taken care of.

 Luke liked that the train above is also from Toronto

 Choo-Choo :)

 This old wooden train car with the stained glass windows was my favourite.

 Wheeee, trains are so fun no matter how old you are!
