This is Water Wars weekend so at 12 noon a pickup was loaded with barrels of water, water balloons and water cannons. They cruised the park a few times for and hour while they pummelled anyone with that was armed with water. There was a huge crew chasing the truck, people with buckets and hoses. Everyone sure had a great time, great way to cool down on warm sunny day!

Then time for me to start prepping supper. There is 11 of us and lotsa food cook, baked potatoes, fresh corn on the cob, sausage on the weber Q. And a couple salads to devour.
We are camping so improvise, baked potatoes over the open fire, corn on the camp stove and the sausage on the grill it worked perfect.While supper was cooking the boys went and played and 36 holes of mini golf.

Then desert for a celebration. Two Grandsons had a birthday in the last week one 7 and one 6 years old, so for that a gluten free blueberry and a cherry cheesecake for desert.

Now we just sat for a few minutes to catch our breath after a very busy couple days, Then tidied up a bit put away all our extra tables and chairs and enjoyed a wonderful quiet afternoon in the shade enjoying our books.
Well there ya go we really had an awesome and very busy friday, saturday and sunday great times had with family. So much going on with this long weekend, A holiday celebrated in most of Canada the "Civic Holiday" on the first monday in August. Why ? just because there was not enough long weekends in the summer.
Any who, thank ya' all for stopping by and joining in on our fun times. Hope your weekend was great too.
Because the campgrounds busy and so many people in the area our 4G hub for the internet was intermittent and very difficult to get a good signal, so I need to post this blog off hours, after this the weekend will be back to normal.
