We start off in the Province of Alberta. Our Edmonton based family sent some nice photos with little Owen. He also had a busy week of fun and activities. Whether in the park or at home, our little man did learn some new things.
|Owen with dad, Deni enjoying some fun time in the local park.|
|Enjoying some back yard Edmonton time.|
|Mary is enjoying some nice outdoor time.|
|Mom is sharing some cuddles with Easton while Brie was taking a nap.|
|Once up from her nap, Brie joined Easton for play on our deck. Water is an attractive activity to have fun with.|
|Even Nana gets involved in the water games.|
|One morning, Jeanette joined Ginette and the two grand kids as they headed to another park for some play time.|
|Treats and fluids are part of the play routine.|
Then Easton got his hands on the floor mop and chose to clean up the floors in our master bedroom while Brie took a work break on the bed.
Easton did experience a difficult lesson this past week. Walking around our yard, he found a bird floating in our pond. It was dead. That hurt his feelings. He was asking why the little bird had died. Nana shared her feelings with Easton as they planned a proper burial for the little bird.
|Easton is trying to coax the little bird to wake up.|
|Given the choice to select a proper burial place, Easton chose a place under some recently transplanted Emerald cedar trees.|
|At a local berry farm, pie making facility and awesome farmers' market.|
|Beautiful garden. And the setting for our sit down outdoor breakfast. Krause Berry Farms|
|Nice Tiger lilies.|
|Jeanette, Trevor and Brie.|
|A perfect breakfast meal enjoyed outdoors.|
|This was how Trevor and Ginette treated us to an awesome outdoor breakfast.|
|Little Brie enjoys flowers.....|
We had not planned to go there. Just riding along some back roads had us drive by. We turned around, drove into the parking area of the facility and, under the shade of their picnic table tented areas, we watched three complete drops before heading out.
|New jumpers - along with experienced ones - heading for the aircraft.|
|More jumpers..... Each plane take off included 9 parachutists; most singles and some doubles.|
|Preparing to land.....|
|This jumper's helmet had two Go-Pro video cameras mounted.|
|A real pro. She landed on her feet......|
|This airplane was busy ferrying jumpers to their high elevation jump point.|
Back home, we enjoyed a lovely outdoor dinner on our deck.
And that's pretty well the story of our past seven days. Thanks for dropping by.
Oh......and the writer of this little scribe is celebrating a birthday today, June 15th.
