It was a very sad day here today in Penticton with the shooting and death or 4 people. It is such a beautiful place, but like many small towns (and big cities), it has its fair share of issues with homeless and drug use. Still a shooting…๐Ÿ˜ข We are sad to see such hate and violence in our still very new home. And sad to think that no matter where you go there are people who cannot control their hate. Yesterday we had a great day as a family biking from Okanagan Falls to Penticton and back via the beautiful KVR trail. One of the reasons we moved here. And an important reminder to make the most of every day because you donโ€™t know what the next will bring. . #biking #bikingwithdogs #bdaug #mydognamedbailey #bikingwithbabies #kvrtrail #visitpenticton #gunviolenceawareness #pentictonstrong
