Back to Saskatchewan …
Last year we spent a weekend in Regina with our good friends Kelley and Paul. They are Ren’s godparents and it was obvious last year how much the time at their house meant to our Renners. We just had to do it again this summer!
The weather wasn’t great but we managed a bit of time outside. Feeding some ducks and geese …
Exploring the sights, including a beautiful but somewhat stinky fountain:
And just enjoying some bonding time with the godparents:
I think Ren kinda adores his godfather!
Not to be outdone by Uncle Dorian and his fire hall visit, Kelley and Paul – both city police officers – arranged for the kids to hop into a police car.
While the kids thought the backseat of the cop car was a big attraction, Kelley shuddered at the thought; let’s just say she knows what kind of germs can be found there! But the policeman showing us the car assured us that the car had just been freshly cleaned with no backseat occupants since the cleaning. So into the back they went. Kelley surmised that Claire and Ren were probably the only people ever to be happy back there.
Back at Paul and Kelley’s home, Paul gifted the kids an important policeman accessory, albeit of the candy variety: mustaches!
The waxy candy could transform smiles in more ways than one! See Paul’s blacked-out tooth below:
Later, the boys cooked …
… while the girls visited. Claire’s godmother, Auntie Sylvie, was able to join us for the evening:
With such an action-packed weekend, the kids slept soundly each night. Ren was in heaven in an orange-walled room at their house. It was cute to peek in on the kids while they were sleeping. I thought this was a particularly sweet sight one morning:
A big thank you to Kelley and Paul for hosting another memorable weekend!
