from sparwood we made a long, long drive over to kelowna. about nine hours if you were wondering. just a little disclaimer: this gypsy life might seem really fun and exciting, and "oh, what an adventure!" and for the most part, it is. but when you wake up on a sunday morning and don't know where you're headed next, only to find out it's going to be a nine hour drive half-way across a province--it's not that fun. packing up your life and driving that far at a moments notice isn't always the business. especially when you don't even know where you're gonna stay when you get there (at midnight). and you have to sleep in a hot, hot trailer on the side of the road by some hotel that people you're with may or may not be staying at.

but without all of those annoying inconveniences on this journey, all the really great times wouldn't be as sweet. so i am thankful that sometimes it's a pain to live this way. because when you hike up to that beautiful waterfall, or you hear the ocean waves crashing on the beach, or you smell that sharp, salty ocean air on the ferry, or you get sand in your mouth diving for the ball on the beach of that beautiful lake one august morning, or you stare at your husband across the table from you at a little sushi place that is just to die for, and you feel that deep and abiding love for him so intense that you have to hide the tears in your eyes from the waitress, it feels really good. even better because you have to go through some trials in order to experience it all.

some pictures from a date we went on, downtown kelowna:

the sushi was from here. and if you want the best all you can eat sushi in all of bc you would be wise to try it. great prices, even better food, and still even better service. after we ate we went to a movie (bourne legacy, loved it, incase you were wondering), and then to the mall to get sam a canucks hat. you know canada's getting into your bones when you are buying hockey paraphernalia.

here are some iphone pics from other days there...

we love foothills creamery! i would say their ice cream is what i will miss most about canada. particularly the blast off! flavor. it is an addiction. like i really think samuel and i are going to need rehab when we get back to the states. we may or may not have gotten a 4L jug of it from this distribution center i hunted down in west kelowna. and when i say may or may not have, i mean we definitely did.

memories in kelowna:
a bath
best sushi
a hotel room
the beach of the movies
creepy lady with the chicken in her lap at that one place
that hawaiin milkshake
the nicest laundry people
lakes on lakes
gettin that blast off!
