June/July fun

Love having the grandkids stay over

Liv & Luke made a hide out for quiet time! 


Lucy & Abby just read in bed. 


And we even found Bella dog food for Bella!  


We did an apple taste test. 
7 varieties. 
They were all good but the best three were:


HoneyCrisp
Ambrosia
Pink Lady


And of course, there was lots of swimming as well.  
Secily, swooshing her hair!

Winnipeg

My mom had a stroke on May 31.

She was in the hospital for a couple of weeks and 
then was transferred to Deer Lodge Rehab. 




We always stay with my sister Darlene & Randy.

So great to see their kids, Kyle, Tiffany & Ollie. 
Ollie was so good all evening but by the time I thought 
of taking the picture he was ready to go home. 


Tiffany is an incredible knitter. 
She finished these socks while we were visiting!
Amazing!


The next evening we enjoyed supper at the Churro truck. 
Always delicious and always fun to see 
Tara & Jacko. Manuk & Amaya. 



A yummy picnic on the grass!
Thanks Tara & Jacko! 



Great to be together.

Our hearts were broken




On Sunday June 2nd we received a call telling us that a tragedy had hit Weyburn.
Our niece's husband, Dale Chessall, and their son-in-law, Eric Calibaba
were both killed in a terrible vehicle accident.  





The funeral was held on June 10th  at the hockey arena in Weyburn. 
1800+ filled the place in honor of these two men.

What a gift to the family, to be able to sit
