When it comes to a Summer time getaway, nothing beats a good old family road trip. We were fortunate enough to have a beauty of a car, courtesy of Ford, for our week away. For this little getaway we took our 2016 Ford Edge to Penticton, BC. Being surrounded by lush vineyards and a gorgeous lake, had us feeling like we were far from home even though it was only about a 4 hour drive. So perfect for when you are traveling with little ones.
Most days were spent on a little adventure like floating down the cannal or hitting up the farmers market. We spent our evenings going for ice cream, having BBQ’s, and taking in outdoor concerts. No day was complete without a walk along the beach. It was the perfect little escape from day to day life.
We rented the cutest little house through AirBnB. It was great to have a big yard and a huge garden that we were able to pick fresh veggies from for dinner. We were only a 5 minute drive to the beach and main town area. Our Ford was perfect for keeping our phones charged, rocking out to satellite radio, and getting us around in comfort. Maddie called it our special car. The best was power outlets in the trunk of the car. We plugged in our air pump so we could blow up our giant floating “Party Island” to float down the cannal in. That was Maddie’s favourite adventure. It took us almost two hours to float on down and when we finished she said, ” I want to do it again!” She fell asleep shortly after that.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a video with you. This trip seemed like the perfect opportunity to record some memories. I hope you enjoy!
