canada day and evening play...

We're so excited for it to be July!

all set and ready to go watch the parade!

taking it all in...

it's serious business figuring out which float will throw candy next!

enjoying some candy...and no, that isn't infant-onset acne or chicken pox...the mosquitos love Avery!
That evening we enjoyed a walk along the beach to a little park.

Fun on the slide...

Our girls...

Roosters, Rides and Endless Roads...

Well - our (read: my) summer holidays have officially begun! And we decided to kick things off with a trip to the Lake to celebrate Jim's mum's birthday! It was just a "quick" trip there, being that we were only able to stay Saturday to Monday early morning, but it was nice to have some serious quiet time after a somewhat hectic 10 months!

Here's a little rooster we got Mum - he sits at the door to the now-completed "Kitchen"!

While we were there the girls were having the time of their lives - we feel so blessed to have this place to go to and the family to spend time with!

Swinging with Oma...

Here's a picture of the Kitchen, fully finished! And they have added some little decks to both buildings - I think it's a nice touch!
Our little cabin...adorned with a deck! Oh yeah...and while we were there, they hooked up a real toilet...that flushes!! I'm slightly excited about that ounce of civility!

Oh yeah - and while we were there Jim and Ron hooked up a real one that flushes!!! I'm slightly excited about that ounce of civility!!
Here's Jim trying to avoid me capturing a moment of relaxation...

Reluctantly allowing the documentation, but the moment was totally lost!

So, I thought I'd document ME... relaxing! Don't you just love my attire?! Yes that IS a Mac Jacket! You know you waaaaant one! Should you choose to come a pay us a visit, there are plenty of jackets to go around!

And of course, what's a trip to the lake if we didn't take the quad out for a spin??

So, there you have it - the rooster, the rides - oh RIGHT...the endless roads! Well that simply refers to the fact that 10 hours in the vehicle there AND back was a tad too long for our girls to manage! Heck - it was almost too much for ME to manage! Don't know that we'll be doing that short of a visit again any time soon! But now, looking back, it was worth it!
Now, onto more adventures this summer has in store!
Blessings to you...
