So, I am back from Winnipeg and settling into life in Edmonton once again. We had such a wonderful time in Winnipeg - despite the heat. It was 49 degrees (with the humidity) which made it difficult to breathe. But that didn't stop us. The kids had such a fabulous time and we got to do alot of fun things. We took the kids to Fun Mountain Waterslides by 9 a.m. so that by 1:00 in the afternoon when it got too hot we could go home. We also took the kids to Birds Hill Beach. In the heat we found that the best place to be was in the water. The kids didn't come out of the water all morning. They loved it - but my poor husband got 2nd degree burns on his shoulders and back(even with sunscreen).
We also took the kids to the car races. Malachi LOVED it - the Alcohol cars scared him a little but he loooooved the races. But I think the best part of the trip was my dad's surprise 65th birthday party. I can't believe we pulled off the surprise, but 3 months of planning and almost 200 people later we did it. And he loved it. I was lucky enough to be the person who gave a speech about and for my dad. What a wonderful day that was.
And now its back to regular life. My parents will be here this weekend to drop the kids off and then its time to get ready for school again.
So, post a message to me telling me the best part of your summer. Then I'll get my kids to pick a name for a RAK!
Have a wonderful week!
