This weekend was our annual ‘May 24th’ weekend which always makes me laugh as the 24th never falls on the holiday weekend! Oh well, we’re thankful to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Birthday whenever they want to give us a long weekend!
Friday evening Hannah and I chilled together packing and preparing to head north to Nana and Papa’s trailer on Saturday. We arrived shortly after noon, enjoyed lunch together and then we helped a bit with the opening of the trailer for the season.
As we were leaving town Hannah ‘innocently’ asked ‘Are we near the candy store?’
‘Why yes we are! Would you like to stop?’
‘Oh, that would be nice!’ LOL – She had a plan and mission accomplished!! We love this old fashioned candy store and it’s a regular stop most times we go in to town. Next visit I promise will include ice cream!!
After lunch Hannah and I headed to the ‘ship park’ to enjoy some fun in the sun. There was a group of teens up at the camp for the weekend and they invited Hannah to play ‘Grounders’ with them on the ship and she had a blast!
I think she surprised a couple of them when she decided to flip upside down on the rope.
After we left she said, ‘Mommy, it’s neat that those kids were born in China just like me!’ Even though the ones I spoke with were born here in Canada, their parents had been born in China and it was neat for her to have this time with these kids!
Thank you Nana and Papa for inviting us to share this weekend with you!
On our drive home today we stopped at a local country store to pick up a few groceries since all the grocery stores were closed for the holiday. The dandelions are in full bloom and what Mommy can resist watching her little one enjoy a sea of dandelions?!
I am so thankful for the weekend we shared together! The first of many this summer! YAY!!!
