Ontario, Canada Adventures #3: Getting Stuck, Kayaking, Etc.

This will be the LAST post (first post and second post) over our trip to Canada :( It was a lot of fun! We'll be going back again sometime, though! For the last few days, I have some FUN things to tell you about based on the post title...

The next day it was raining, and we decided to go to a nearby town and check it out. We hoped to see a moose but had no such luck.

But we did see a waterfall!!!

I also finished Disappoint with God. Remind me to do a blog post over more Christian books I've read and loved. I also have really big news about one of the goals I completed, and I'll get to it in one of my devotions. Also, if you think I said I was going to do that devotional but now am backing out, I'm not. I've just been taking some time to brainstorm devotion ideas and the content I want to put in them. I will start releasing them soon!!

Anyway, Dad and Mom went out by themselves, and Hunter and I played Sorry. I'm pretty sure I won.

Mom and I went for some walks while Dad and Hunter cleaned fish.

The next day I decided to go fishing again.

The next day I went out again because we were going to a new lake.

This time I brought something to do when I was bored - writing! The boys are passionate about fishing; I'm passionate about writing, so I worked on writing for a series I'm going to eventually do.

So, about getting stuck... We tried going through this little entrance to this one place, and the entrance was maybe not even 7 feet wide, and there was mud and these weeds everywhere....

That was intense as we tried not to get stuck in there.

On our last day, just Dad and I went fishing and caught some pretty big fish.

Then Hunter and I got to go KAYAKING, which was one of my summer goals!

I thought that kayaking would be hard and that I'd fall out, but Hunter tried it while I was fishing and told me it's a lot of fun, and you don't tip over easily. He was right. I only tipped over three times. ;) Jk we had a lot of fun doing that. I might just do that the entire time next time we're in Canada! Also, our canoeing lessons in PE really paid off haha, or I wouldn't have known what to do. ;)

Well one hour of sleep later we had to get up and go home. Waking up at four o'clock. That was awful. Absolutely awful. STILL HAVE NIGHTMARES ABOUT IT. This picture was like the only good thing that came out of that.

Good bye, lodge!

I went right back into my healthy eating ways.

We drove all the way home, all 12 hours. Surprisingly it didn't feel that long. I was just happy I had my data back ;) We also picked up Willard!

I loved our family trip. It was nice getting away and having fun together. I also had lots of time to read my Bible and that book and write and all that good stuff. I definitely can't wait to do it again. And I do believe in the power of prayer. Not everything worked out perfectly, but God got us through anyway. Thanks for following along!
