Neve and I are spending this dreary day cleaning her room, so there's nothing exciting to report today. We are expecting exciting things later on when we head to Mike & Darla's for a Canada Day celebration. I guess only the die hard ones will actually swim, but we're looking forward to getting out of the house.
In the meantime, I'll seize this opportunity to step back a few weeks and share some pictures from the weekend we spent at Bob & Janet's cottage with my family. The weather was poor and it was only a week since Joan passed away; no one was in the highest of spirits but it was good to be together. It was nice that Dan was still here.

Here is the ill-fated fishing expedition about to depart:
When they didn't return in a timely manner, we were just starting to get concerned when Jordan texted us saying the motor wouldn't start and they were stranded on the lake. There were no other boats at the cottage available to help them, but eventually the stranded fisher-people flagged down another boat that pulled them home. Neve thought it was a grand adventure and fish were caught, so I guess it wasn't so ill-fated after all.
And Spencer caught his very first fish ever. He had no idea what to do with it so he just stared at it in joyful wonder until someone (not me) came to his rescue. He threw it back and then promptly caught it a second time.
|Nothing funner than chasing people with a fish|
