Hotel sleep-over on our way home from Ottawa!
Calypso Water Park!
This place is super fun and it was one hot day! We made the most of it and went on all the rides- yep, even P + me! A few hints if you're planning to attend: bring your own drinks + snacks (big line-ups), do not wait in the ice cream line, and watch out for the "lazy" river- not so lazy + actually, kinda crazy!! So worth the drive! There are tons of picnic areas and life jackets are everywhere! Good times for sure!

Where to begin really? It's been so long. So much has happened. I can say that it has been a fabulous summer thus far! I have been loving every minute of this hot weather, good friends and great times!

Gavin absolutely loved this party! He gets so excited to get together with our family. I'm sure all this singing and dancing has something to do with it! He was the only kid around for the party and it was great that everyone included him in the festivities. Although his requests for Kings of Leon, ACDC and Lady Gaga weren't met, we joked that eventually he'll learn "under the boardwalk", "mustang sally" and "love potion number 9". He's got to... someone has to carry on the traditional tunes!

So, after losing my compact Canon last summer I figured it was time to replace it and get inspired to take more photos. I love my Canon XTI SLR but it is difficult to travel with the bigger lenses and I don't always get the shot I want because of how long it takes to prep and sometimes I just don't bother because it's work! There's a time and a place. So, today we bought this little brown baby! It's the newest in the Powershot ELPH line with a full touchscreen on the back. So love this little, tiny, easy camera. Can't wait to plunk it in my purse and await the inspiration that follows. See, I'm hoping taking more pictures will naturally lead to more scrapping. I figure our third Disney cruise is sure to kick start some serious photo taking!

It's true! I love a good Sunday! It's my favourite day! I can putter all day with no where to go and nothing to do. I love that! It may seem very unproductive to putter but I actually accomplish quite a bit. For instance, today:
I ran for 30 minutes, cycled and boxed all on the Wii!
Shopped online- bathing suits! What else? Yep, Victoria's Secret and I have become fast friends! Collaborated with friends on a great camping trip- and it's not until August!
Did several loads of laundry.
And now, I cook. I love a good Sunday dinner too! Today we are having ham with fig orange glaze, roasted potatoes and roasted cauliflower with garlic, lemon and olive oil!
Oh and I did do quite a bit of work for tomorrow's PA Day!
Did I mention I like Sundays a whole lot more when I have a PA Day on Monday?
