We’re here in Christina Lake for a few days camping! I really prefer room service, but when you have kids, you either go to the cottage in the summer or you have a trailer and camp by the lake which is where my sister Elizabeth and her family are this week! So where my nephews are, that’s where you’ll find me eventually.

We arrived on Wednesday night and Elizabeth and I have been riding every morning as far around the lake as we can. When we passed by this motel (below) I thought the colours were so great, I’m sharing them with you!
The exterior is SW 6672 Morning Sun, and the accent colours are SW 6545 Majestic Purple and SW6788 Capri.
Here’s what I want you to notice about these colours. The turquoise and yellow are really clean and bright and the colour scheme basically ignores the roof colour which would have been so much better in charcoal grey.
But the reason it works is because there is so much more motel to look at than roof.
So summery and fun! I think it would have been absolutely perfect if the yellow was stronger and less clean, choosing yellows that are too clean are a common mistake people make, but overall it’s just happy!
William and Markus are totally entertained by their big trucks playing in the sand for hours!
I liked this picture because his shorts match the truck!
Here I am in my new awesome beach chair!
I’m really enjoying my little vacation and then I’m back in the office for a week and then Terreeia and I leave for our Atlantic Canada vacation!! Can’t wait!
Hope you are enjoying our long weekend my lovelies! xo Maria
