Summer Fun

With the colder than normal weather we’ve been having it’s not quite summer yet, but we’ve still been quite busy having lots of summertime outdoor fun.

Frontenac Provincial Park Camping Trip:
Last weekend, Brennan, Heather, Sara and I camped at Frontenac Provincial Park. We canoed into campsite #4 on Big Salmon Lake. A bit of a tailwind got us there in good time. It's just a beautiful site that’s very remote. The weather was looking a little questionable, but it didn’t start to rain until after we had called it a night, so we got off lucky.

It was so nice just hanging out around the campsite, relaxing, chatting, exploring trails and eating by campfire. It’s funny, as these are many of the things that we regularly do in our backyard, but they always seem that much more special when you get away. We saw lots of wildlife during our weekend including deer, a beaver that swam near our campsite, the biggest black rat snake I have ever seen (over 4ft long), a loon that popped up next to our canoe and our friendly campsite chipmunk named ‘Dizzy’.

Soccer:
Heather's soccer season is in full swing now. She has a great team and coach. Everyone plays well together and is improving weekly. They currently have a record of 3wins and 1 loss.







Track:
Heather also had her regional track meet yesterday and competed in the 100meters, long jump and 4 x 100m relay. Heather had a great day with some solid long jumps. She also just missed making the finals in the 100m, but then closed out the day by finishing second as part of the 4 x 100m relay. So, the relay team will go on and compete in the area meet next week.

Brennan has also been busy building new mountain bike trails around our property and once they have been completed, I’ll post some video of him riding them.
