Ontario Lacrosse Festival Ajax Ontario

Where are we today ?
       This morning a nice sunrise across the yard. Then we got stuff together, hooked up the car and picked up grandson number 1 at 9 am to head out for Ajax Ontario to the Ontario Lacrosse Festival in Ajax and Whitby Ontario.
       Now being a holiday weekend here in Canada ( Civi Holiday) the traffic will be building pretty quickly and having to drive thru the city of Toronto things got pretty slow. But we did get there in time for his 12:30 warm up for the 1:30 game. 
this mornings sunrise
178 kms (110 miles)
Suzie gave up her co-pilot seat for our Grandson
traffic slowing down
we have lots of time and we have our house so no hurry
        Arriving here we were directed to the south parking lot where we hang  out for the weekend between games.
     The team is all warmed up and ready to play.
3 periods of fast energetic play
they played well but were defeated 4 to 0.
we checked out the rock climbing but no openings today
       Thought about going for a swim but only had less than one hour left for the public swim. So back to the house in the parking lot and whip up some supper, tonight sausage, salad and shrimp.
        After supper we watched some people playing tennis next to us for a bit as the skies clouded over and rain showers started.
      We can now relax a bit before we head out for the next game at the Whitby Arena 15 minutes away for 8:30pm tonight. 
      So I will post the blog now for today and update more game results tomorrow, another game here in Ajax at 1:30pm.
      Glad you could come along for the ride it has been wonderful hanging out with grandson number 1 today, his mom and brother are coming here for the rest of the weekend and tonights game.
