July & August fun

We looked after Jeff & Chandra's kiddos while they were in Honduras
for the first half of the week. 

AJ found his 'house'

Lots of time in the pool

And time 'watching' or reading. 
Great times.

Then Bryan & Eraina took over for the last half of the week.
They kept busy with 7 kids, 7 yrs. and younger. 

It went very well. 

After we all came home then
Lucy went to Camp for the first time. 

And she and I  finally got a sewing lesson.  

Her finished project.  
Such a cute apron. 
Good sewing Lucy!  

And of course fun times at the lake.  

The tube was a highlight. 

My heart is happy on the lake. 

Luke's heart was happy in the mud!  

And Grampa can find a place to sleep anywhere.

So fun to celebrate Darlene's birthday!  

Showing off our Pandora Bracelets & Charms
which we got for our significant birthdays!

Unfortunately during that time, my Dad broke his elbow
And ended up in the hospital. 

We even had to celebrate his birthday in there.  :(

We made a quick trip to Saskatchewan 
saw Grace & Ken & Helen.  
No picture of us together. 
 I guess we were too busy talking. Haha! 

Driving in southern Manitoba

Darlene and I had a fabulous bike ride. 

So fun.  

And we got to visit Tara & Jacko...

In the Churro truck 

We tried them all!  

Very Delicious!
