Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Day Trip

….thanks to Manja for co-hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

A few weeks ago my son and I took a day trip to Sparrow Lake Camp in Gravenhurst. Our daughter and her family are living up there for the summer and it was  our only opportunity for Brendan to see his twin sister before returning to London, England.

The staff was busy getting the camp ready for the first group of boys and girls who arrived earlier this week. We enjoyed a day of hiking and playing and some of the braver souls went for a swim.

On our way home we stopped at Weber’s for dinner. We parked the car on the west side of the highway and crossed over on the pedestrian bridge.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Ebb and Flow

thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

Ebb and flow is all about water for me. This year the water levels seem to be up everywhere. Earlier in the week I drove north to visit my daughter and her family at Sparrow Lake. Not sure how much the water has risen here but there are signs that it is higher.P1070750

Why Three Year Olds Love the Crazy Uncle

….maybe it has something to do with the fact that they can be as goofy as the three year old

Our granddaughter doesn’t get to see her uncle Brendan very often but when she does he makes sure that he gives her his undivided attention. Yesterday was no exception when we drove up to Sparrow Lake to visit Brendan’s twin sister and her family. From the moment we arrived he was placing banana peels on her head, swinging her in the air, playing pretend sword fighting with sticks, playing with balls and doing cannon balls into the lake. Here are a several examples of the two of them at play.
