Summer is all about swimming and sunning and being outside. But we are Canadians and we are spending our summer in Canada so naturally we spent a little bit of time on the ice as well.

Blake has some pretty wonderful cousins. The three girls are very horsey and keep their horses at a farm in the country outside St Marys. We went for a visit the other day and it was so much fun. As per usual, Blake was ultra cautious and took a while to warm up to Little … Continue reading
