Recap 2010- June

During June, things picked up a bit for us- and I'm so grateful they did!

I think something in us snapped around June (a good snap, not a mental breakdown snap,) and we realized that we only had two more months left in the amazing city of Vancouver! Everything was so green, the weather was great, albeit a little rainy, and we so much more exploring to do before we left!We explored Bridal Falls outside of Vancouver (though I'm pretty sure every state in the USA has its own "bridal falls," and that I've been to at least 3 of them, ha!)

And got to spend a day picnicing at a snow fed, mountain lake with friends.
Ian and I took a day trip out to White Rock, where we did an impromptu photo shoot on the beach. I love my husband so much!
While in White Rock I got to touch "the Pacific Ocean." I'm not entirely sold on the fact that a bay with waters fed by the Pacific Ocean actually counts, but I suppose if I never make it out to the real thing, I'll count this. (Also, on a side note, this picture reminds me of how much I miss wearing my skinny jeans. Boo. After the baby comes and the next time I'm in the "big city," I might have to break those bad boys out for a wear. Maybe.)
Ian and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on June 14th, 2010. We had a great dinner, fresh ice cream, and a walk along the beach. Perfection.
We also celebrated our friends' baby's first birthday. We have been so blessed to be a part of "J's" life and can't wait to see him, his parents, and new his new little brother again!
Ian and I also ventured out to one of the many cultural festivals that happened in Vancouver this summer. This one was the Greek festival, and that woman, she was making little pieces of heaven. We refer to them as "honey balls." but they were a doughnut hole like piece of dough, deep fried and covered in a honey and sesame syrup. Anyone know what those little morsels are called? Sad, but this is the only thing I remember about this festival. There were far too many people and I tend to get a little anxious in over crowded places, so we left shortly after we ate.

The honey balls are called Loukoumades and I agree, they are really good!

Great idea on a way to recap from the year. Perfect! I love it!
