Camping Injury Report

Camping is a strange thing – you pay a lot of money to basically live in the wilderness with all the attendant dangers and risks. This summer, we’ve had a few… Pace hit himself in the face with a metal scooter while attempting a trick, cutting his face, giving himself a fat lip and loosening […]

Music Monday – “I just wanna Rolly Rolly Rolly with a dab of ranch/I already got some designer to hold up my pants/I just want some ice on my wrist so I look better when I dance/Have you lookin’ at it, put you in a trance”

Not the most traditional campfire song but here’s another Music Monday song that we’re hearing a lot at our seasonal campsite thanks to Pace who’s a bit more plugged into current music trends than I am. 😉 (One fun highlight of our most recent weekend was watching him create various playlists on our streaming music […]

Friday Fun Link – 39 s’Mores Hacks That Will Change Your Life

  Of course Buzzfeed has the perfect listicle for this topic. We’ve tried a few s’mores variations ourselves with a current favourite being “Exploding s’moreos” where we not only use an Oreo instead of a graham cracker but also the limited edition Fireworks Oreos that have pop rocks candy mixed in!

Saturday Snap – Abandoned Bike

Pace took a couple friends camping this past weekend.  At one point, he asked if they could ride out to the lookout near our site and take their bikes down the hill. I interpreted this to mean “Down the little dirt path to the point just beyond the lookout” but he took it to mean […]

Saturday Snap – Ramping Up The Friendships

Pace set up a bike ramp in front of our campsite and suddenly six kids showed up to ride on it with him (I managed to catch four of them in this photo.)

A Good Recurring Camping Injury To Have?

Every single weekend when we get back from our seasonal site on Sunday night, I feel like my legs are on fire from all the walking, biking, hiking, swimming and assorted heavy lifting I’ve done over the weekend (and no, I’m not just counting all the beer cans I’ve lifted to my mouth as “heavy […]

End of Year Track Meet

One of the things that seems like a downside of my current job at a branch is that I have to do some evening and weekend work. But sometimes that turns out to be an advantage. Because I worked this past weekend, I had Monday and Tuesday off.  And so I was able to go […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sk8r Boi (April 2012)

Pace is really into skateboarding now so it was interesting to come across this picture from when he was five which is probably the first time he ever tried out a skateboard. This was taken in the backyard of one of Shea’s friends whose husband is also really into skateboarding and other extreme sports.

Sometimes I Forget I Have A Blog…

…usually after a weekend of camping. Here’s some “catch-up” posts… Saturday Snap – Skateboard Mods Pace modified his penny board with duct tape and glow sticks (and after we got home, more permanently with some spray paint I got him to decorate the ramp his grandpa built him!) Secular Sunday More than half of Canadians […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The More Things Change… (June 2010)

Quite often, to pick out a Throwback Thursday picture, I’ll look through my photo library to the same month but a few years back (I have photos going back to 2006 when we got our first digital camera and a few that had been digitized when we got film developed before that.  So I can […]
