Growing Out On A Limb

Canada Day at Yogi!

Leave a comment

We spent Canada day with Yogi!  Our first camping trip of the summer was a great one spent with great friends and new friends.  Camping – it’s a ton of work but it’s totally worth it to get away for a few days and watch the kids have fun.  It’s great that the boys are at the age they can just take off on their bikes for a while, roam and have fun on their own.

It was a wet weekend but the pouring rain was mostly not during the waking hours, so we were able to make the most of it.  Thankfully Eleanor had her lovely pink umbrella!

We played quite a bit of washer toss, kids and grown ups alike.  Hubby and BJ even won 2nd place in the washer toss tournament, so obviously all that practice really paid off!  20170630_211304

Like I said, it was soggy!  Thankfully we all had our rubber boots packed!

The boys put water bottles in their bike tires to make their bikes sound louder.  They saw one boy doing it and pretty soon all of the bikes going by had them.  It was the fad of the weekend… like a biker gang!  20170701_183329

We called this porcupine Ash because it reminded us of Ash from the movie Sing!20170702_103627Oh my gosh, the goats.  There were so many goats!  I love goats so much, I think they are my spirit animal.  They are really friendly because of course they think you’re going to feed them.  The babies though… adorable!  20170702_104013
