A Celebrity Comes to Town


Its been a long cold winter for some of our friends.  It looks like they have been here for a while waiting on us.  I'm not sure if our food and ice cream will save them.  Actually these campers are regulars and they draw a lot of attention with their display out front.

We are Back!!!!


Well it has been a long time since the publishing of our last blog.  It has been an extremely busy summer with the ice cream business almost doubling in sales this year and me doing some outside work as well.  Lets give you a little recap of our summer over the next few days before we fire up the engine on the Ponderosa and head south for the winter.

Renovation of CJ's

After a few days of planning and gathering materials, the renovation of CJ's began in a flurry of activity.  Because we are doing the floors and painting, all of the stuff in the shack had to be moved out front.  We watched the forecast carefully and knew the week was going to be dry so we were able to just pile everything outside and tarp it at night.

Stuff everywhere

Back to Manitoba

All good things have to come to an end and so it is with visiting family.  We always look forward to seeing them, but I think they are a little happy to see us go home.  It doesn't matter how much parents try to fit into the daily routine of our kids, we are not a part of their family unit.  They are a unit of their own now, and have their routine and schedule and we tend to disrupt that.  Things like "here let me buy them candy", and "oh it's ok if they stay up a little later on a school night, Midnight is not that bad", and "here let me feed them a sugar filled cup cake",  just tends to go against all that a parent strives not to over do with their kids.  Oh well!!!  I love being a grandparent!!!

Family in Alberta

Now that we are back on our summer routine, I am only going to publish a blog once a week.  It seems like most of what happens in the summer is not that exciting and often repetitive.  The time with our kids and grand kids is certainly exciting but I tend to forget to take the pictures.

Since we have arrived at our daughters in Lacombe Alberta, our son Derek and Nicole and our grand kids Abby, Silas and Emma have arrived here too for a week visit.  This is the first time we have seen Emma because we were already down south when she was born.  What a sweety!!!
