Where is Summer?

We are still waiting for the real summer weather to arrive, and now Environment Canada is telling us that we’ll have to wait until next summer for seasonal temps. I think we might have had 3 or 4 days where the temps have been over 26C. I know to people in the south that sounds great but our summers are so short and winters so long here that we really do treasure a few weeks of toasty weather.
We were really fortunate that during our holidays we were able to get out fishing a couple of times, not alot of fish caught but good times non the less. One of Eriks daughters was home for a visit and joined us

Sarah had announced their wedding plans a week before my holidays so a visit to Fabric Land was called for for the finishing items needed for her dress. Katie and her friend came along and I couldn’t resist a picture of her buying fabric for a dress she had in mind. I’ll share pics of the dress in a future post.

The last week of holidays were spent in Wisconsin Dells, thankfully the temps there cooperated and we had a great time, camping and playing. What a very interesting a fun place.
Katie had a little fun the night before we left.

We had a little visit at Cracker Barrel, I’ve always loved their chairs.

The boat tour was so interesting, I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Dells.

I was also able to conker some major fears of mine and can’t wait to go back and do it again!! Funny how you can be so afraid to try some things….myself I’ve asked Erik to make me try these things just in case I might like them. He tells me that if I want to go again I have to go on the:
noahs-ark
I’d better not wait too long on that one.

I have a son! (in law that is)

I have been on holidays for the last 2 weeks, I took a total break and I’ll post about our adventures abit later.
First though the big news.
My eldest daughter Sarah and her Texan sweetheart were married on Saturday. It was a nice family and close friends wedding and will be followed next fall (once the immigration process is complete) by a larger wedding in Texas.
