Happy Canada Day!

from the Lake to the fireworks - we had a great day and a great weekend...Friday, I took 6 children to the splash park - yes 6!!!! We had alot of fun!  We stained our deck on Saturday - in that heat!!! Sunday, we spent the day at Nutimuk public beach - the weather was unbelievable and the lake was like glass...I even got in the water and tried out our new tube! Fireworks in the evening - we watched them from the truck bed on a gravel road(kind of sounds like a country song!! and only 1 mosquito bite - amazing!  And on Monday - we took in a beautiful Dog...I say took in as we are dog-sitting for the moment...we will see if it turns into something more... I have to say though my kiddies are IN LOVE with Max:-)

Here are a few snapshots of our weekend!

hmmm - I think alot of these water- fun pics will go great with the Splash line from Little Yellow Bicycle, in both stores now...I will play and post some pics of layouts:-)
 What did you do this last weekend??
