I can't believe September has arrived already and I'm posting this as I sit at home on my vacation day while Noah is napping and the two big boys are at school(!).
Here's my re-cap from August:
- August long weekend I took the Friday off work and we drove up to Temagami to my in-laws cottage with some friends and their two sons. The boys had a blast paddling around the bay on the paddle boat, going for rides on the sea-doo that was up there, and jumping off the tower that my father-in-law built on the dock when my husband was B's age.
- We spent some really hot weekends up at the trailer out on the lake most of the day doing water sports, sea-dooing, and swimming at the shallow sand bar and deep spots in our lake. We even had family up to visit one weekend which was fun. I'm feeling much more comfortable driving the boat now and ripping around on the waterskis.
- We visited my mom at her new house in Wasaga Beach (twice!) and the boys had a blast on the beach (especially Noah) and visiting the skate park with their scooters.
- A couple of weekends ago the weather was cooler (20 degrees!). The boys did some fishing but we didn't go out otherwise on the lake. We went swimming in the heated pool instead and I went into town to the amusement park for a couple of hours with the big boys and friends of ours and their kids. R hung back with Noah while he napped. We had lots of fun doing go karts, batting cages, and a coaster which the 4 year olds couldn't get enough of but the 7 year olds were too scared to do. We also had some relaxing nights by the campfire. The boys don't usually stay up long enough to see the fire. Trailer days are long and busy so they are often more than ready to crash by the time we're done dinner. There's nothing better than sitting by the fire with a glass of wine and adult company once the boys are in bed.
