One of my daughter’s closest friends came from out of town to stay with us this week and we had BIG plans – big ENTERTAINING plans! And then… my husband got sick, my son got sick and even the weather played it’s cards against us… sigh…
I felt bad for the girls because being stuck at home during the summer isn’t always fun… And although they have had each other I knew they were probably a little disappointed. So yesterday we left our sickies behind (poor fellas ) while the girls and I went in search of some summer fun.
In case you don’t know, my family and I live in Creston, BC. It is a small rural farming community but, in my biased opinion, it is one of prettiest places on earth! And, as we also discovered yesterday, it is full of entertaining treasures!
First stop: The Blueberry Patch!This sweet little cafe/bakery/candy shop/u-pick farm is amazing! I love stopping here at least once each year and it was fun to share it with Hannah’s friend, Tanner!While I drooled over the scenery and fruit outside – the girls drooled over the candy inside! Ha ha!However, I managed to get them outside for a few minutes. Second Stop: A little downtown Creston shopping. There are a few really cute shops in town and although I didn’t get pictures of them all it was super fun for the girls to wander through them. Third Stop – ICE CREAM! Buffalo Trails Coffee Shop has opened a retro little Creamery right next door to their cafe. This was our first visit but I think we’ll be back!Mmmmmm… good!The day ended with dropping the girls off at the Tivoli Theatre to watch, Ice Age – Continental Drift. I stayed home to take care of my sick boys so I won’t be able to write a review on this movie for ya – but maybe – just maybe… Hannah will write it for me?! (Hint hint)
