Where to start? Every summer brings something new and some of the things we enjoy doing every year.
As stated in the past blogs, we have a new Trailer and Truck. I plan on putting a picture of the two together on blog heading to replace the one of the old Truck and trailer, just need to take the right picture in the right spot. On June 28th to June 30th we headed down to Howe In. to tour the plant where our trailer was made. We met our friends Ken & Nancy and toured our plant and then one of a trailer they hope to buy. It was a short trip but we had a good time together. Here are a few pics. of the trip.

To start off, July 1st, we had our annual dinner with my family, meaning my parents and sisters and their husbands. Being they all live in Stratford it was nice they could all come in one vehicle. After an afternoon of socializing and showing off our new trailer we sat down to a tasty meal prepared by my wife, Pat.

Of course we are still working, but during the months of July and August we work a compressed work week. Monday to Thursday are nine hour days which gives us a 1/2 day Friday, we then use a 1/2 day vacation to take the other half off giving us a three day weekend.

Starting July 24th we will be away with our new trailer doing the things we enjoy. This will be Pat's sister weekend, when she and her sisters spend time being sisters. I on the other hand, meet up with some of the brother -in- laws at The Acreage and do what ever. The next weekend being the Civic Holiday, we head back up to " The Ridge " and " The Acreage " ( the two pieces of property owned by Donna & Gerry, about 3 Kms. apart) for a family reunion/get together on Pat's side, always a good time. With our new trailer, it is to tight to get into " The Acreage " so we go to " The Ridge ". After that, we are home for a week before we head to Silver Creek RV Resort in Silver Lake MI. and meet our friends from Antioch Ill. for a week of fun. Then, who knows what the rest of August will bring before the Labour Day weekend when we spend time with my cousins at Inverhuron, On.
Today being July 5th, we are invited to the CanAm RV annual BBQ at the owners home. Sounds like a good time. Hold the presses , I mean hold the blog. Here are a few shots of the BBQ, it was a great time.
|these five shots beg the question, who was having more fun.|
Hopefully I will be able to post on here after each event. Until then, I hope you stay tune and follow along, take care.
