A Day in Michigan with Sharon and Tony

We LOVE our friends Sharon and Tony!!!
We worked with them for 5 years at SAS. We ate, played, traveled, laughed, cried…you name it with them. I am so happy that we have been able to reconnect with them every summer (I think) since they moved on to Laos then India.

We had a fabulous day at their lakehouse. It was not hot, but that didn’t stop the kayakers or the fishers.IMG_1724 IMG_1730 IMG_1753 IMG_1758 IMG_1774 IMG_1775dent

Boler Mountain

We had a brilliant time at Wild Play when we visited Peg and John in Vancouver last year. I started googling ropes courses to try and give Blake a turn in Ontario. I was very excited to find one in London, only 40 minutes from here.

We had a fantastic day in the trees!

Blake and Erin whizzed around the junior course twice while Scott, Brett, Barb and Richard tackled the adult course. Amazing!

Camp

IMG_1386This year Blake and Erin went to Secret Agent Camp at the London Children’s Museum. They did lots of fun activities, but the highlight each day for these two campers was playing in the Museum galleries. Their favourites were Space and Street.

Petanque

My dad has a petanque court in front of his building.  Blake and his Poppa take on Erin and Scott. It was a one sided affair. Scott is pretty good at Petanque.IMG_1346

Wonderland

We’ve had a few trips to Wonderland this summer. Here are some pics that highlight the fun we have there and the big gap in Blake’s mouth.

African Lion Safari

We spent a wonderful Father’s Day at African Lion Safari.

My mom’s sister lives near by so we combined a lovely dinner with family & a fun outing for us.

We loved the petting zoo. Blake holds the food out for the goat, but then chickens out at the last second and drops it for the goat to pick up off the floor.IMG_1029 IMG_1022

Blake took a ride on an elephant.  He rode the biggest elephant there.IMG_1040 IMG_1034 IMG_1032 IMG_1038

We saw a baby. The ALS has successfully bred three babies this year and one was out having a good time.

But the absolute highlight was the water park.  It has a fantastic splash pad.  And if there’s one thing Blake loves, it’s a medium sized water slide and no lines.

He hung out in that water park for about an hour and a half and didn’t stop moving once. So much joy!

I think this is my favourite picture. IMG_1079But I have a lot of favourites.  Check these out.

IMG_1061We finished with some swinging in the playground.

First Game of our Season

Our first game this season happened at Teddy’s Field on Minor Ball Day in St Marys. It was fun and amazing. Our numbers were low so all the kids got so many chances to hit and run and field.  FANTASTIC!IMG_1006 IMG_1003 IMG_0976 IMG_0979
