We are in Leamington Ontario visiting Dave’s family. We had a busy, fun Canada Day. I started the morning with a walk down to Lake Erie with my sister-in-law Shirley. We are staying with Dave’s brother Paul and my sister-in-law Shirley, who made us a lovely dinner our first night here.
After our walk we had some of Shirley’s delicious muffins and a special smoothie for breakfast and then Dave’s brother John popped in for coffee before we all headed off to a Canada Day picnic at the Leamington Mennonite Home where Dave’s Dad is a resident.
There was a band playing, short speeches by dignitaries, lots of great food and a chance to visit with friends and relatives. Several of Dave’s aunts were there too and we met a number of Dave’s highschool friends whose parents are also residents of the home.Then we were off to the Erie Shores Golf and Country Club where Dave’s brother Paul is a member for a round of golf.
For supper our nephew Tim had invited everyone in the family over to his new house. He and Penny provided a delicious meal, the kids had fun in the pool, there was lots of visiting
and teams were made for an upcoming family golf tournament later in the week organized by our nephew Michael.
We’d had such a busy day we didn’t stay up for the fireworks. Happy Canada Day everyone!
