a selection of pics from our family time together in smithers and environs...
claire's birthday was on the road, so naturally had to have a cake waiting!
but it was also tom & sue's anniversary, so claire let them blow out the candles
jon worked for the first few days...we hiked up malkow to stretch out the car legs
the fam on the river in hazelton
had a stunning hike up to crater lake...
the way up...although you may not be able to tell from this photo, we just went through a brief snow fall (!!)
coming from the heat of ontario, claire thought the snow was just fantastic
(i, however, could only think of our crappy summer and looming fall weather...but still beautiful!)

claire, hiding from camera
claire snapped this pic of the awesomeness of jon's t-shirt
dinner in the log room at the aspen
enjoyed the time with family...hope they had a great time, despite the cool, rainy weather...and the copious amounts of benadryl tom was no doubt ingesting from all of lucy and thespa's hair!
