We have had a few wonderful lazy days of summer but as of tomorrow, we are switching things up. First thing in the morning, the kids and I driving out to Saskatchewan for two weeks to visit friends and family. Paul will join us towards the end of our trip but for now, we’re all in “miss Daddy” mode. As I write this, he’s tucking the kids in which is usually my job. I should be packing but instead, I’m trying to cram a few more minutes in on the internet before it’s lost to me for 14 days. (I’ll have my iPhone but that’s it.)
The photos in this post are a bit varied and would ordinarily find themselves in individual posts but hey, I’ve got limited time! So here goes!
Lemonade Stand #2
Well, the one day that the kids could sell lemonade this weekend was Saturday and it was a gloriously warm, sunny day. But. There was no one around. No one. I mean, I knew it was the long weekend and all, but I thought there would at least be some people walking their dogs, heading to the park, etc. Nope. Wrong. The kids did their best to drum up business by waving to passing cars but a sell-out just wasn’t in the cards. That said, the people who did stop gave huge tips so I guess it wasn’t a total bust!
Since business was slow and the day hot, the kids were quick to help themselves to the lemonade. At least Ren pretended to pay for it in the photo below!
And then they proceeded to get a little goofy.
Any guesses as to what’s going on in the triptych below?
Yep, that’s Ren practicing for his smooching booth with a not-very-willing Claire! But the kissing bandit got his just rewards. As Claire pulled away and he leaned over to follow her, he tipped his chair. Down he went.
I like how Claire attends to the flower vase first. Hee hee.
With rain forecast on Canada Day, we made plans with friends to go to a matinee (Brave – loved it!). I took a few pictures of the kids at our place before we left for the show. This is the best I could get of the two crazy-heads together:
I barely had time to take any pictures before they were off the steps and on to their favourite front-yard activity: stomping ants that have strayed from our nasty ant hills.
Why they relish this activity, I do not know.
I hope you all had a wonderful Canada Day!
Walking with Kitsya
Whenever we head outside to garden or play in the yard, we bring our indoor cat, Kitsya, with us. She has a little harness and a leash that she dons for these occasions. Lately, the kids have enjoyed taking her for little walks around the yard. I think she enjoys it too.
Have a great couple of weeks, everyone! I’ll post photos of our Sask. trip upon our return.
