July is, of course, a month that starts out with a bang with Canada Day and July 4th. It is also my mother’s birthday and full on summer activity. We went to the Zoo, entered in the County Fair, and I even made a Dragon. July is always a busy month.
This July we had family come to visit. Nana and Baba drove up with the cousins. So there was lots to do with them.
Baking and ice cream making.
Visits to the park.
It had been a while since all the kids were together.
We were invited to a birthday party at a park!
Of course there was LOTS of time to get to know Neko-chan better. Seriously I am in love. And so you will be inundated with pictures of fluffy amazingness. I just wish you could feel her through the pictures. SO SOFT!!!
We visited with Cousin Robbie. Still a family favourite. Echo even got to sit on his bike! He wears all the safety equipment in this helmet optional state.
Of course we watched some soccer games.
And walked to the YMCA … A LOT. Ken had a business trip in July and the YMCA being so close was a life saver.
Emanuel and Echo even won a colouring contest
Trinity and Emanuel have continued in their Karate adventure.
We even saw some produce from our garden.
Found a Canadian penny on a walk!!
Bought ice cream from a passing ice cream truck.. a first for all of us!
I found time for Tim Hortons… of course!
Ken and I joined forces to create a lovely chalkboard in the front entry. He does an amazing job with ideas I come up with!
We even managed to squeak in school!
And did I mention I am obsessed with my chinchilla? Cuz…
It was a great July!
