brians sister jenn, her two kiddos joviah & tadeo and ollie & i drove out to pense, saskatchewan at the end of june to spend time with brians family. we had so much fun!

we relaxed at home, went to the beach, enjoyed the beautiful flowers, stayed up late chatting & watching movies and had a lovely time all together. we got to see oma finken, grandma abbott, the brownlows and lots of other family when we were there, too. i also got to visit some old friends.

it was fun to be able to go to my old home ward and show off my baby. everyone had an opinion about who he looks like; "he's all thomson!" "he looks just like a henrie!" i like hearing both of those things...makes me feel like ollie is a good mix of the two of us.

it was such a great trip and even with all the driving the kids did so good!

so sweet & snuggly.
