My Summer Vacation

Hey, Hey,
I am back from my vacation. Actually I have been back for a few days but it took me a few to get organized and started on orders. Orders are top priority, blogging comes next. I love coming back from a break because I am always renewed and ready to get creating again. But what I am making is a whole other post that I will save for later.

The Heynen family went on their first road trip. The boys are 6 and 8 now so they are old enough to ride in the car for long distances without going crazy, so we tested their limits with this trip. We drove up to Indiana to see family and drop off the pooch at Gran and Grandad's house. Then we headed to Maine. We camped in Acadia for a week and then headed back down through Canada to Indiana. We hit some other cities along the way like Niagara Falls, CA, Portsmouth, NH, Quebec City, and Toronto. We all had a really good time.

I took 619 pictures on our trip, so I wil show you a few today but it's going to take me forever to edit all of them.

This was my favorite surprise of the trip....Quebec City, it's a fortified city that is 400 years old. I felt like I was in Europe and I got to use my French and that doesn't happen very often. Here I am super happy...I looked like that the whole time we were there.


  1. Wow! What fun! I can't wait to see more of youf faboo trip and more importantly to see what you are inspired to make because of it! You look so happy in that shot. There are NEVER pictures of me...I should change that.
    Enjoy the day!

  2. Thank you for sharing your trip details and wonderful pictures. I will have to get up to Quebec City sometime, it looks like so much fun!

    I must also say you are quite a brave soul to go on such a long road trip with two boys! It has been years since I went on such a journey with my kids but it gave me a lifetime of wonderful memories.

    Take Care,


  3. Jennifer! It looks like you had an awesome time! Please, post more photos soon!

  4. WOW - great trip!! Sounds like fun fun fun!

  5. What an amazing trip! Now I want to go to Quebec too! I love Maine. It's one of my favorite places, but we haven't been there for 15 years!

  6. All of your pictures look great! I'm glad you had a good time.

  7. Erin,
    The only reason I am in that picture is I handed the camera to my husband and told him to take it. I have to say though my six year old has a camera now and too quite a few pictures and I was in some of those. I might start showing up in more vacation photos this way.

  8. Thanks everyone, it was a really great time!

  9. Valerie,
    I hope you're doing well, I need to hop over to your blog and see what you're up too.
