Because we're on an acreage, there are always things to do outside. We have a few horses, one of them an old mare (30 years old) that is quite reliable and trustworthy with any beginning riders. The other one is the one I normally ride - he's not quite 20, but is fairly quiet and although he doesn't listen to all the cues with the kids, he's not likely to go running off or bucking.
Lucky and Jake and 2 very happy riders!
We also have a dugout and a canoe and although it's a small area to
paddle in, it was a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon.
Learning to paddle together!
Changing of the crew.
We took in a performance of Mary Poppins, which was in town on its Broadway Across Canada Tour. Our seats were up high in the very back of the theatre, but we could still hear and see everything on stage. Even the most reluctant one of our group enjoyed the show.
