Adventures in Slave Lake

Adventures in Slave LakeHard to believe that summer is almost over, I feel like it just started. (Seriously haven’t even unpacked Bobby’s backpack from last year yet and we have to do back to school shopping tomorrow!)

Easter weekend is the only time I don’t have to bug the kids to clean their rooms or pick up their toys because we have told them the Easter Bunny only leaves eggs in clean rooms ♥.
