We took a holiday!

It was short. But it was a holiday away from work and home so that was wonderful. We went to Summerland, in the Okanagan and did a little camping on the way. It has been so long since I have been camping and it was the Wee Beast's first time. She was over the moon excited! It was adorable. And for so many hours spent in the car she was incredibly well behaved. I think it helped that we brought a ton of books and colouring stuff, not to mention the old school standby, The Gameboy. That bought us some chatter-free time.

We went to Summerland for the sole purpose of riding the old Kettle Valley Railway steam train. Someone is obsessed with trains. When the Wee Beast saw the train for the first time I thought her eyes were going to pop out of her head! She was also a little freaked out. I mean, the engine is huge and it makes a lot of noise. It was pretty spectacular.
We went on a touristy ride for about 2 hours. Not something I would normally have done but it was actually quite a lovely ride. And an amazing dream come true for my daughter. ♥

On the sewing front, I seem to have my creative mojo back. I have been sewing like crazy and have finished some new bags. They will be at Global Underground's new location soon. If you haven't checked out their new space, you should. It is beautiful!
