Ben's brother Dan and his lovely wife Kendra came along for the adventure.
They were total troopers, as it was all our first times snowshoeing. Dan even let us take pictures....okay he didn't really have a choice.
|I was just trying to adjust my settings but I love this ready-whenever-my -wife-points-her-camera-my-way-smile that my hubby has totally mastered.|
|Not gonna lie, I sure love that I can hand my camera over to Kendra and |
get some good shots of us too. She's the best.
And I sure love to return the favour!
|Such a cute couple, right?!?!?|
|"Please Daniel? Chelsea's only gonna take a hundred more!"|
|He was a good sport.|
|Meanwhile, Benny had a great time playing with his drone.|
|And I had fun playing with my camera and the amazing light as the sun sunk behind the mountain.|
|So I could take a selfie with my gorgeous sister in law|
I have totally hit the jack-pot with all my sisters in law, and Kendra sure is included on that list I feel so grateful for.
She is SOOOOOO good with Daniel, I love watching how their relationship works, and a lot of that can be contributed to Kendra's incredible balance she maintains between her patient-accepting side with her ain't gonna-take-no-crap spunk, both of which I adore. I can tell she is fiercely loyal. And perhaps because of this extreme commitment to those she cares for, she doesn't just let anyone in. There's no half ways to love in this girls world.
On the way back in to Lethbridge, Daniel decided he had definitely earned himself some Ming's. We ran into Kendra's Dad during our stop and it was so sweet to watch the love--so obvious because there was no holding back. Car doors were swung open and out loud "I love you's" followed big enveloping hugs.
We have so much to learn from this girl's fearless way of loving.
And I can't wait.
Can't wait-- for all I'm gonna learn from this "new sister" of mine, and for the many, many more adventures yet to come!
|PS snowshoeing is really fun...so glad I jumped on the bandwagon!|
