For the first time in 7 years sadly we will not be headed to CA to celebrate July 4th with the Salsa family. It’s a tradition we thoroughly enjoy and plans are already being made to return next year but this year I just couldn’t quite swing it. The last 2 years we were blessed to travel on points and credits earned by volunteering to step down from an overfilled flight. We are well on our way to having enough points for next year so all going well, July 2015 will see us spending time with our awesome friends! Miss you like crazy M3!!!
Because of the change, Hannah and I headed up to visit Mom and Dad at the cottage they rent in Muskoka 1 week earlier than normal. As I sit here on the deck blogging, these are the views I am currently enjoying. Ahhhh….beautiful!!!
Hannah and her cousin Makenna are currently at a children’s program that is offered each morning and Mommy is enjoying a couple of hours to herself. Hannah has also moved into vacation mode and allowed us to sleep until 8:30 this morning. A special treat for sure!
It is so nice this year to not only spend time with my parents and niece, but my brother, SIL and their 2 youngest are here too so the girls have lots of time to play together and we have lots of time to visit. A rare treat when they’re normally shuttling their 6 kids here and there and Hannah and I keep our schedule full too.
we spent time together at the beach. A great way to spend an afternoon for sure! Tuesday afternoons are ‘Beach Fest’ with face painting, cotton candy and a sand castle building contest. The girls worked long and hard…
The girls love spending time together and we never seem to finA d enough time. I’m so thankful for these few days they have to share together. Ahhh…family time. A special summer treat!
