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!!!

Let's Go Fly a Kite!!

The weather is warming up more and more each day and it is nice in the afternoon even without a jacket.  Sue and I headed out to Bentley in the afternoon to pick up Donovan from school.  While there we visited the "The Kite Guys".   This is a neat store with all things kites.  They have been in the kite business for about 30 years and said that they really love it.  They are kite fanatics themselves so that makes what they do even more interesting.

Out and About

We didn't accomplish much today, but we didn't intend to either.   We are here to spend time with family and that is what we are doing.  Gord and Sheri had to run a bunch of errands today so we climbed in with them for the ride.  We went to a butcher shop in Bentley and then on to Walmart in Sylvan Lake.  Its funny that I always check to see if they are RV friendly. lol
