It's Summer!

We just got back from a spontaneous trip up to Jan Lake (my parents co-own a cabin in process up there). If you know us, you know we rarely do something so spontaneous.

We really should do it more often.

always ready with a smile

We went for ice cream. Triple Chocolate Brownie...mmmm. The few licks I had while "helping" the boys keep theirs from dripping too bad were delicious.

The stuff of my  nightmares

We saw big hair creatures. I think this is that Sasquatch they keep talking about. I am still having nightmares. Me and spiders do not get along.

One willing, one not

We biked to the dock and willingly (and unwillingly) posed for Mommy.

The Dock

We enjoyed the twilight hours. Summer here means daylight until well after 10pm.


We sat on the beach and waited for the Canada Day fireworks.

My boys

The boys passed the time by racing.


And teetering.

Skipping rocks

And skipping rocks.

Living Sky

And watching their very first sunset and fireworks. We have never let them stay up that late before due to the grumpies that set in when they are down on sleep. They were old enough, they both handled it well and aside from the swarms of mosquitoes attacking us from all angles, they enjoyed the experience.

That's what it is all about, making memories to last a lifetime.

Thanks Mom and Dad/Grams and Pop!
