The things I do to get a beer
The other day I had mentioned to a cohort that it had been a while since I added new pics of the family to the personal section of the ol Blog
Now that warm weather has finally arrived here in the Great White North (eh) yesterday was a great excuse to get out.
For those that dont know, we left the city life back when our daughter was born some 7 ½ years ago and now live a peaceful small town lifestyle. As youd expect in Canada, we have a Maple Festival each year that includes street festival activities on the main strip and more on the local maple farm
fun for the whole family!
To give you an idea of the size of our town, there is maybe 20 stores and not a single set of stop lights
a couple of stop signs
and thats it
. population around 3000...
Take a ride with me
We started off downtown making sure to get our new hats to ensure we arent mistaken as tourists
the red neck doesnt start showing until the mosquitoes get worse
After a bite to eat and some shopping, it was time to get the kids war paint on.
Which turned out pretty groovy
We then wandered about chatting with locals (everyone knows everyone dontcha know) and then headed to the local maple (sap/syrup) farm
...went for a hay ride
Then we were fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of these strange little forest dwellers
And of course, to finish up, what would a trip to the farm be without some pony rides right?
Youd think that would be enough?
Of course not
. After all of this excitement we still had a birthday party for a friend of my daughter to attend
And it was at this point that I finally was able to break away to my buddies fridge at the birthday party and find the gold at the end of my rainbow of a day
yeeeehaaaaaa..... (my son took this pic... lol)
The kids had a sleep over and the missus and I got back pretty late.... zzzzz.... Today is another wonderful day outside but alas my inbox is calling and my reader is smoking which means a few hours of catching up today.
To that end everyones favourite Social Media Mom has graciously asked me to give a few thoughts on her blog about being a Dad in the marketing world
so be sure to get hooked up with her feed and well see you there
I hope yall have a great weekend as well
