Pier Jumping at Lake Okanagan

A totally non-card related post, as these are some pictures of the pier jumping we did while on vacation in the Okanagan, so you can delete this post if you like!

My two kids - love them to death!!  My son is gleefully enjoying the fact that he is basically as tall as his sister and he can't wait to catch me!


These four have known each other since they were  in-utero!   They are dear friends and it was wonderful being able to spend a week camping with them.


Love this shot.  The pier was just over 2 meters high (about seven feet) so just the right height to have loads of fun jumping off it and the lake water was perfect.  Wonderfully warm and refreshing at the same time, a perfect way to cool off from the 35C (90+ F) temps! 



Love this boy and his wonderful smile :)


My son and I jumping together.  I obviously jumped first so he is getting pulled in LOL!


 My beautiful girl.  Love the expression on her face and the fun pose. 


I love swimming and water, so pier jumping with my kids was a totally fun way to spend many an afternoon!  After all, can't let my kids best me now can I, LOL :)



One of my favorite pictures of me and my daughter.


We have many wonderful memories of our week camping with friends, but the swimming/pier jumping was definitely the high light for all of us.  The water was gloriously warm, clean and totally refreshing to swim in and gave us a ton of exercise, the weather was amazing (if not a bit too hot!), and we had great times with great friends!   A recipe for success in my books for sure :)

Thanks for visiting.
