Flashback: Thanksgiving Weekend

For Thanksgiving weekend, we decided to get away to one of my favourite places on earth besides Disney World –  TOFINO!!  We haven’t gotten away as a family in a long time and honestly, we were living in the moment  and splurged on our accomodations.  The Long Beach Lodge was truly amazing and we enjoyed staying in the cabin that was pretty much nicer than our house!

The beautiful cabin in the woods

The two things the kids enjoyed the most about our get away was the cabin with the hot tub and ofcourse playing on the beautiful beaches that line the West Coast!

Hot tubbing in the rainforest! Life is good...

We enjoyed the warmth of the hot tub contrasted to the dampness of the rainforest.  Big B later joined us for an evening of hot tubbing under the stars!

The girls running from the encrouching waves

The girls loved running out into the water as it was drawing back and then madly run back to the shoreline as the waves rolled in.  Sometimes the water would come back so quickly that they’d get soaking wet!  Good thing they wore boots.

I loved the main Lodge for it had a beautiful grand room where we had breakfast the following morning.  Everything was freshly made, freshly squeezed – they even made their own granola and yogurt which rates high in my books!
