Changes I Made While Working From Home | TELUS PureFibre

It’s no secret at this point in time that you all know that I’m currently working full time straight from home. I have to say that having this Summer with a little more freedom is the best thing I could ever ask for. All that playing does come with some work time too though.

Our Family Day Exploring Destination Cultus Lake

Cultus Lake WaterPark

Well, we kick started this Summer into full gear with a family group waterpark trip to our favourite local spot Cultus Lake Waterpark. It’s one place that we visit every Summer ever since Owen was little and we always leave with smiling faces. This year was a little more special for us because our little Ella could really fall in love with so many rides and truly experience the play areas. She had such a great time exploring the kid area and even getting to ride a few bigger slides herself! Our little girl is growing up.

Packing A Summer Picnic

My children love to be mini hostesses. I mean I totally understand where they get it from. Watching me set up for parties, get togethers or just helping me set up for dinner. They totally watch and lead by example, so when it comes to movie nights they love to help set up and get the party started. They love getting out the fancy dishes for their treats and drinks, lay out everything so nicely for us to enjoy!…
