Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Summer and a Photo Dump

Yup that's all you get. Lol
Lots of photos, 


Summer was fabulous. I didn't take many photos even. But to recap we had a great week with Jim and Janice in Cranbrook, many many visits with all the family and a short camping week with the Camerons. 

September came fast!

Welcome Home

 Well here we are settled at home and everything is happening! Meaning we are back doing one of our favorite things - chasing the grandchildren around their activities.

Connor and Mason are in spring hockey. This is something for Mason as he is still in the age group that is half ice in regular season. Mason will also be playing baseball, Connor decided not to as he is in Cubs and it continues until the end of the school year.

Blake is in several hockey camps, but also playing Lacrosse again.

And the girls are playing 3 on 3 ringette!

Our other big focus in May is the long weekend camping trip! It has now become customary for the family to all go to Lindsay and Jeremy's cabin/land. We have lots of quads and a side by side and you can always count on lots of miles. Sunshine, laughing, great food and drink, and all of us in one place FINALLY!

Don and I took a few short road trips as well to our favorite places - highway 11 drive, and of course a lunch in Jasper one day. 

May sees 2 family birthdays. Blake turned 15 on May 5 and Lindsay celebrated her birthday May 27. When are your children old enough you don't state their age? LOL

We fit in a dinner with Blake on his actual birthday, between his sports. And we caught LIndsay for supper and dessert! 


To some families these may seem like small achievements, but we are all so busy it is awesome when we make this happen!

May ends with our anniversary. 42 Years !!

June really was more of the same... another camping trip - this one the annual fish off with Bruce and Kerri at Calling Lake. The weather, fish and beverages did not let us down again. A fabulous time for all and truly one of my favorite weeks of the year.


The girls and I finally fit in Lindsay's birthday date at the spa, the Cameron kids spent a weekend with us, and I had my usual share of meetings and work.

A very momentous event happened at the end of the month as DWS Aggregates Consulting closed it's books. It was a great run and we all are so very proud of Don and that unique piece of his life!

Blake graduated to high school and Reese graduated to Junior High! Time stops for no one, even us.
