The Goonies!!!!

Saturday night the Rotary Club of St Marys showed The Goonies on an outdoor screen in the Flats. It was so cool! There were somewhere between 100 (Scott’s guess) and 200 (my guess) people there watching the show.

A hail storm ripped through St Marys on what was otherwise a blistering hot day.  20 short minutes and the ground was covered with hailstones, some as big as golf balls.  We collected up two bins full.  One is in grandma’s freezer and one is in ours, because you just never know when you may … Continue reading »

Yesterday, Blake, Erin, Scott and I went to the Blue Jay game.  They lost 6-0 in what was really a horrible ball game, but we had tons of fun. It was a Junior Jays Saturday so there were tons of great things set up for the kids outside the stadium. Three baseball themed bouncy castles!!! … Continue reading »
