Family fun

although Ben seems to be working all the time this summer
we did manage to all be home on a monday night,
so we headed out to the bowling alley.
we are not very good bowlers. My grandma Thomsen might be a bit ashamed of my lack of skills.
but Ben managed to get two strikes in a row, and Cory got one- but we were trading turns, so he might have got 2 if given the chance!
bowling shoes are oddly comfortable.
just saying!

hot stuff

 ben is a lifeguard. we have visited his pool twice- well three times if you count the time we got there right as it was closing because it was thundering and lightening. which I don't really count because we never even went in. then the time we went and it wasn't too busy, so his boss let Ben come in the water and play with us. that was fun. then the next time someone barfed in the pool, so we all had to get out. (and ben had to scoop it out. he works hard for his money. ha.)
 it is super hot here this week. - the big boys are gone to scout camp. so the girls and I are sleeping downstairs in their beds. I am glad they are gone. it is way cooler down there.
we hit the beach with some cousins the other day. cool water, hot sand. I do love the sun. might have to hit the spray park tomorrow. or somewhere cool. we went and saw the Lorax today- good to hang out for a couple of hours in a nice cool movie theater! yay for that!

happy Canada day!

barbeque with family
no parade this time (church instead!)-
but that's okay- it was rainy and cold earlier, 
but now it is sunny and perfect
for the fireworks tonight.
yay Canada!
true north strong and free!
