Happy belated long weekend to my fellow Canadians! We celebrated Canada Day on Monday (Dominion Day in Barkerville!) Kesten's Grandparents came up for a visit (bringing a bunch more birthday presents) and then we headed off to Barkerville for a camping trip.
Kesten loved all his new presents. What a spoiled little guy!
Next we headed off to Barkervile. Barkerville is an old ghost town that was home to the big goldrush on Williams Creek in BC. Today, it is opened to tourists, with costumed actors bringing the town to life again. We poked around the old buildings, listened to some very interesting talks, and watched various Dominion Day games and activities. We even walked up to the old courthouse, where "Judge Begbie" (The Hanging Judge) was holding court. We got 'yelled' at for entering late and were forced to do jury duty. Haha, it was pretty funny.
Back at home, we are trying to settle back into the groove of things. Kesten is enjoying being back with all his new toys. He loves to sit and eat at his new table. It is perfectly Kesten-sized.
These peas are so amazing! They are an edible snow pea called Carouby de Mausanne Snow Pea, but they have all the beauty of a sweet pea. I haven't tried the actually peas yet, but I'm sold! I'll be growing these again. Edible and decorative, 2 for 1!
