4: Rick and I hit a major milestone this year, so we took a trip to Kauai! What a beautiful island. We went snorkeling, kayaking, hiking in 2 feet of mud and ATVing in all day rain. It was a mess, but we made great memories. Oh yeah, we relaxed and celebrated too.

All this on our way to our family reunion in Whitefish, MT. We started our trip by visiting Collier State Park in OR. It's a neat logging area and had a museum with a ton of old logging equipment. The girls kept saying "Papa would love this!"
14: Our Next stop was Deception Pass State Park on Whidby Island, WA. The Potters camped here with us! The kids had a great time hiding in their secret hideout. My cousin Missy came and visited us. She brought crab that had been caught that day, since crab season had just opened! We got to spend 4th of July here. It was cold but beautiful!

16: Summer Time! | Vancouver, BC | Olympic Torch! | West Vancouver behind us. Most expensive area to live in in Vancouver!
17: Next stop, Canada! We were a little nervous about customs because of the horror stories we've heard, but once they found out Rick was a cop, they let us right on through! We hung out in Vancouver before we headed to Banff and Calgary for the Calgary Stampede. We loved Stanley Park. Too bad it rained on us, or we would've done a great bike ride around the island. We got to see the Olympic torch. The kids got to ride their first subway. What a treat! | Downtown Vancouver | Gotta Love It!
18: On to Alberta and Banff National Park. The most beautiful place we saw during the whole trip. We went to Lake Louise and Lake Morraine, walked around in downtown Banff and camped with the Potters again. We then went to Calgary and went to the Calgary Stampede. What a neat little city Calgary is. | Country Girls! | Banff! Beautiful! | Rudds and Potters Calgary West Campground! | Downtown Calgary!
