one fine day

We had the warmest weather of the season on Saturday (over +21 degrees!!) so Jon and I spent the day in White Rock, enjoying the incredible sunshine. We met up with our friend Tyler and had an awesome afternoon of walking along the beach, eating delicious gelato and just enjoying the glorious day.
This picture of Jon was taken at the end of Tyler's driveway in White Rock. He's got a great view of the water from his front window...


Ocean view
Goofing off, as usual...

Although the gelato didn't quite compare with the gelato we had in Italy last summer, it was still a deliciously refreshing treat on such a warm day :)


The best part of summer's near arrival...
wearing flip flops!!

After an afternoon in the sun, we headed into Vancouver to meet our wonderful friends, Danny & Hailey, for dinner at a great little restaurant called Red Door. They serve amazing Pan Asian grill and the atmosphere is great too so if you live in the area and want a fun new place to eat, check it out. It was well worth it!

We had our "dessert" at an incredible place in Yaletown called ChocoatL. DELICIOUS!!! I had a "Vanuatu Hot Chocolate" and it was literally like drinking pure chocolate. SO good. Another place I would HIGHLY recommend :)
The rest of the evening was spent walking at the waterfront near Yaletown. We definitely got our exercise on Saturday but who could resist with such beautiful weather. I'm so glad we got to enjoy both sunshine and time spent with great friends!

... And now I'm off to my sister's bridal shower. I can hardly believe her big day is only 2 weeks away!! Time is just flying by. Let's hope they have weather like we had this Saturday... it certainly would make for an absolutely perfect day.

You make me want to move to the mountains... where there ocean and scenic places to walk and play. It makes me sad that we live in the middle of prairie land when I read about/see photos of such beautiful sights!! What are we doing out here?!?

Looks like you had a fantastic weekend!! It makes me eager for warmer weather and flowers!
