summer time

Wow, it is July 9th already! It seems that summer takes so long to arrive but once it is here, time flys. We have had a busy summer already. Camping with friends, summer BBQ's in our backyard, play dates, birthday parties and beautiful weddings. What a wonderful season! The July long weekend we had the pleasure of camping with our good friends , Shawn, Corrie, Tyler and Caylie Closs. This is an annual adventure for us. Usually we camp at one of Ontario's beautiful provincal parks but we were a little late organizing and didn't get into the parks on our list so we decided to try a private park a little closer to home. We found a FANTASTIC park called Cobourg East Campgrounds located 5mins from the town of Cobourg. A very clean, well maintained park with lots of activities to do. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool, going for bike rides, playing in the park, walking through the river and taking part in their WONDERFUL Canada Day festivites. I would highly recommend this park. A very enjoyable stay!

On Canada Day, we usually spend the afternoon with "Silly Papa"(Rene's dad) to celebrate his birthday. Yes he is a Canada Day baby who was born in the USA. But this year Nana and Papa were in Chicago at a friends wedding so we missed our afternoon together but were able to wish him a Happy Birthday when he returned.
