What an awesome long weekend it was in these parts. Awesome but also oh so busy! It all started on Friday night when Eric and I went to the local pow wow that happens every August Long Weekend. It was super fun and we ate some yummy bannock and saw some really beautiful costumes and dancing. Unfortunately it was also 38 C / 100 F at 7pm so we only lasted about two hours before we were both simply too hot and sweaty to stay any longer.
Saturday morning I was up bright and early to head to Penticton for my friend/coworker/work wife Geralyn’s bachelorette party! We spent Saturday afternoon wine tasting along the Naramata Bench and it was so so so fun! I have never been wine tasting before and I had the best time. It was also fitting because Geralyn’s wedding is at a winery in October!
After four hours of wine tasting we headed back to the hotel and got ready for a fun night out that included lots of dancing and silly dares.

Also, how stunning is this view of the sunset in Penticton?
Sunday morning after a yummy brunch me and two other girls made our way back to Kamloops. Eric’s parents are visiting us right now so we spent Sunday afternoon fishing and kayaking on a nearby lake with them! This little flock of ducks followed my mother in law around when she was out in the kayak, it was so funny.
Even though yesterday was an extra day off it was a busy, busy one for us. It started early when Eric and I were out the door by 6:20am for a 10km trail run. Gotta beat the heat! Then in the early afternoon we headed out to another nearby lake with Eric’s parents, my dad and my brother for some more fishing and kayaking (sadly no pictures this time) then we finished up the day with a couple of hours of swimming in my mom’s pool. My mother in law even went down the slide head first!
Things that did not happen this weekend; exercise (other than the run yesterday morning), healthy eating or enough h20 consumption, cleaning, laundry and meal prep. I am definitely ending the weekend feeling very un-organized for the week. Luckily it’s only a two day week for me and I am going to spend the next two days trying to be super healthy and play some catch-up before I do it all over again and spend four days camping on the Shuswap. Oh well, life is meant to be lived and this is what summer is for right? Right 🙂
How was your long weekend? Or if it wasn’t a long weekend for you, how was your weekend?
