Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

It has been too long since I last tried out a pinterest recipe. Sorry about that. I decided that this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Loaf looked too good to be true. It was amazing. A little more work than what I would usually pick, but totally worth it. This is also the first time I am making a blog post using something other than my laptop.....so please bear with me.
This wondeerful recipe can be found at Sweet Peas Kitchen. Try it out when you are expecting someone for tea....or just for yourself. Enjoy!

Father's Day in the Mountains

Another Father's Day has come and gone.
We spent it in the mountains......Father's choice!
We went for a nice Sunday drive that turned into a twelve hour excursion.
Fun, but exhausting. 
I am thankful that my whole family loves being in the mountains as much as I do.
We saw three black bears, too many deer to count, and snow!
The kids learned about some of the glaciers along the Icefield Parkway.
While the weather wasn't fantastic it sure wasn't a problem.
We even had a picnic supper on a lake bed....a little off-roading Daddy style.
Here are some photos from the day.
Let me know what you think.

The Boy deep in thought.....that happens in the mountains.

Where we found snow and ice. The glacier that feeds the Bow is here.

A little love int he mountains.

Supper on a lake bed........hope the water doesn't show up suddenly.

Daddy and Daughter on the lake bed.

Enjoying my surroundings. Happy Father's Day!

Tuesday Tune In: Michael Franti & Spearhead

I have loved Michael Franti for a few years now.
This is one of my favourite songs of his, but I had never seen this version.
This is Sound of Sunshine featuring Jovanotti. 
How delightful to hear such a great song in another language....music connects us all.
This song has been known to bring out the sunshine....Shine on!

Reuniting with a Passion for Pictures: Part One

I will keep this short.
This will be a very photo heavy post.
I really enjoyed the Focused Event put on by our local zoo.
The zoo opened early for a select group of ticket holders who wanted to take photos before the crowds came. It was wonderful, quiet peaceful....no kids....lovely. The beautiful morning light however....didn't show. We were all thankful though that the rain stayed away.

I will divide this into two posts....lots of photos!
Let me know what  you think.
