This year we have only been able to go camping once:( I know there are a lot of people out there who couldn't be bothered or who do not enjoy camping but we do. These are the times my kids will remember forever. Where we build memories and reconnect as a family. We do it the old fashioned way too. In a tent. With the bugs and raccoons surrounding us. We build fires, and hike and explore new areas. We put up tents, and swim(to islands:)), and build sandcastles. We play games(sometimes we play them in slippers???), fish, and tell spooky stories. We try to figure out what kind of bug we've found or what bird is calling. We teach our dog to swim:). We rest. We relax. We laugh. Each time we try to find somewhere new to go. This year it was the beautiful Charleston Lake Provincial Park.
For Mom's birthday this year we headed to the beach and then later back to my house for a BBQ, cake, and presents. I have been wanting to try this small beach for a couple of years now as it is not so crowded or well known as the others i would never dream of swimming in. The fact that there is an icecream boat that floats up to shore is the kicker for this one I think:) Funny how the only water pic's I got were at the icecream boat. hahaha. The birthday girl:) When in doubt just get two cakes:)
The summer is flying by and I haven't posted anything since the spring. Here is a look at Canada Day in photos. C and her bestie. I had to post this spooky see through one of my son and husband. I have no idea how this happens but it is kind of cool. Me shooting my sister shooting me;)
