Canada Trip 2013

Our annual trip to Canada has come and gone.  The girls and I flew into Minot, North Dakota where Mark and all the puppies met us.  We had almost 3 weeks of family time-hunting, playing with the dogs and visiting our friends.  I say it every year, but it's always so bittersweet leaving.  Part of my heart is always left there in this beautiful country with these dear people.

Emma got sick our first day there!  Her buddy Duke was trying to make her feel better

The one time of year we get to ice skate.  We had the whole rink to ourselves.

Emma got to go to school with her friend Samantha.  It was her first time in public school (she has only been home schooled).  She had a blast!

What a fun trip! I always love reading about the trips and family vacations that you share. I love travelling because I get that same feeling... like you are leaving your heart in a place when you have to leave. I think that's such a blessing and so beautiful that we can leave pieces of our hearts all over the world.
Glad y'all had a wonderful trip :)

I wanted to say thank you so much also for the comments you left this week- I always love reading them!

Blessings and hugs to you,
Jazzmin
