Here are my photos of the day for the past week.
I should warn you, thought, at first glance, it looks like we've experienced some major fluctuations in the weather in some of the pictures...
Tuesday, August 26th: My friend, Susan (the birthday girl!!), and her kids came over and spent the day with us.
Wednesday, August 28th: Bundled up in our hoodies, winter jackets, tuques and mittens, under sleeping bags... watching a movie under the stars. We went to Winkler and set up our lawn chairs to enjoy the show (Horton Hears a Who.) It was really, really cold out, but we were prepared and nice & toasty warm (I learned from last year. ;) )
Thursday, August 28th: A picture of my best, best girl.
Friday, August 29th: On what I thought would be our last trip to the beach for the year, I got the kids to pose in front of this building for a picture. I love it so much!! (It's my new desktop image on my computer.)
Sigh. We had such a great summer. It's hard to see it go. :(
Saturday, August 30th: We went to my MIL's for a wiener roast in the evening and got a tour of her garden. Love how tall the corn is behind Sage and Jonah!
Sunday, August 31st: Yes, we're ice skating. It was really hot on Sunday (over 30 degrees Celsius), so we went to the beach for a couple of hours. Then, our church had booked the ice rink for an hour and half, so we went skating to cool off! Only in Canada! LOL! It was so funny to hear the moms say things afterwards to their kids, like :"Take off your jacket, we're going outside." Or, "No, you don't need to wear your mittens, we're leaving." Too funny! (After the skating, we met at a friend's house for a wiener roast and the kids went swimming! Too strange a day! )
Monday, September 1st: Our friends, Pam & Walter, at their daughter, Amanda's, wedding. I love how happy they look in this picture!
Thanks for looking!
