Summer time and the livin' is easy

Notice any difference between the months? In June, we had to colour code the calendar because there were so many days that two or three family members had to be in different places at the same time. And July? Well, we flipped the page, and suddenly there is a blank slate ahead of us. Ahhhhh... how I love blank slates!

We started off on the right foot with a trip to the beach yesterday, and a family bike trip to the Forks for Canada Day celebrations today. (That's a 22 kilometre round trip! The longest we've done as a family.)

It's hot, hot, hot, and we're tired, tired, tired (in fact, Marcel is lying on the couch next to me snoring right now), but we're oh so happy that it's summer!

Happy Canada Day and Happy Summer!

22 kms! That's quite an accomplishment!

Yeah, in our house, too, there's a pretty big sigh of relief when June is over!

That's a major trip for a family. I'm impressed.

Happy Summer indeed! Ah... I'm thankful for our little bit of summer in the middle of winter. Things are getting really cold here now. (OK, it's all relative and no where as cold as you get... but still, for us it's cold!)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. We hit the ground running and I haven't had a chance to follow up your link for your story, but I'll be checking it out soon!

Enjoy your big long month of July! (January is our equivalent here)
