Well I think summer is here. I am just worried that last weekend, which was 3 full days of fabulous, unheard of May long weekend weather, was summer. That happens sometimes in Alberta, if you haven’t noticed?
Since our last blog May went by far too fast. My work is picking up the pace. As I filled in my monthly activity report wow – not much wonder I didn’t feel time to breathe. I think Don felt somewhat the same. June just plain scares me.
We had a great long weekend camping with Paul and Mary. All of us had family throughout the weekend, and the great weather didn’t hurt either. Don and I were on our own, which is unusual for the May holiday. Most recent years have been all the family with quadding and fun, but this year as happens when your kids are actually adults, they had other things to do! But we were lucky as Lindsay and Jeremy came out for Sunday and spent the night before returning home to Fort McMurray, and Tracy, Cal, Bake, Emerson and Reese came out for the day Sunday. We actually spent quite a bit of time playing on the beach, which was a treat. I keep referring to the weather, but really we are normally in winter coats and fighting off rain and snow the long weekend. This year we fought off sun and bugs – a nice change!
May is a fun month as Blake and Lindsay celebrate birthdays, and Don and I celebrate our anniversary! 31 years for us.
June is crazy – weekend camping with Lindsay and Jeremy, weekend moving Lindsay and Jeremy to their new home (can’t wait to see it), weekend camping with Tracy, Cal and the kids, weekend off (yardwork, fence building?), then into July. 2 weeks at the Saskatchewan cabin, and then boom, July is half over! Don’s mom and dad will celebrate their 60th Anniversary while we are there.
August we have 2 weddings and my mom’s 80th birthday! Can you believe my mom still works almost full time at 7-11?
Also Don and I hope to take Blake and Em on an overnight camping trip. They just love camping!
So that seems to be summer for us. We will see if all goes as planned. If you don’t hear from us at least you will know where we are.
Happy Warm Summer days to all!
