A walk in the woods

We discovered a neat trail a short drive from our home.  The kids really enjoyed it – I think we’ll be going back on a regular basis. 

Here are a few photos: 038

Weekend fun

Another long weekend has come and gone.  We had our annual Canada day BBQ party where we had a great time hanging out with our friends. This is the first year for as long as I can remember where it did not rain! It’s also the first year that we didn’t make hot-dogs and hamburgers so maybe that has something to do with it?

The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key. It was hot and sunny – perfect for splashing around in the pool.  Steph blew up a giant rubber dingy that takes up half the pool but the kids thought it was great fun.

Kids goofing around with some silly sunglasses …

Naomi had 2 soccer games and *almost* scored a goal.  I hope she gets to score at least once before the end of the season!  Francis had a baseball game and was happy that they won (since they got creamed at the tournament last weekend.

How was your weekend?
