Saturday Snap – Like Mother, Like Daughter #ndpldr @thejagmeetsingh

Shea’s mom meets with Jagmeet Singh in Weyburn (home of Tommy Douglas) Saturday afternoon… Shea meets Jagmeet Singh in Regina Saturday evening…

Music Monday – “Put out my lawn chair/Watching the sun arising/Evening comes/I’m watching the sun go down” #saskatchewan #sask #camping #provincialparks #summer #echovalley #fortquappelle

I’ve finally had time to go through all the pictures (2000+!) that I took over the course of the entire summer and winnow them down to a handful of favourites. That’s still more than most people should have to sit through at a single sitting so what I did was create a long slideshow with […]

10 Reasons Why Taking A Seasonal Camp Site Led To Me Having One of the Best Summers of My Life!

It could’ve easily gone the other way. If we’d had a rainy summer, if we had neighbours who played loud rap until all hours of the morning (nothing against rap – just not my idea of campground music), if we hadn’t been able to get out to our site as much as we did, if […]

Music Monday – “All summer long we’ve both been free/Won’t be long til summer time is through/Summer time is through”

One of the most poignant episodes of The Simpsons is “Season of 4 ft 2” which tells the story of the Simpsons family taking a summer vacation to the lake. Lisa, who’s usually an outcast nerd, ends up befriending a group of cool kids while Bart, who normally has a large circle of friends, is […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Heading To Our Seasonal Site (May 2017)

This one doesn’t reach too far back but given that summer’s (too) quickly coming to an end, I thought I’d post a selfie Shea took of us on our way out to our seasonal campsite in mid-May (and yes, I think our daughter might’ve been buried under some pillows since our van was so full!)

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Wedding Date (May 1999)

This is a picture of Shea and I just as we showed up for my sister’s wedding.  Nice to know we’re just as good looking today as we were back then! (Well, Shea anyhow.)

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 […]

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 […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our New (To Us) rPod 182g (August 5, 2014)

Funny, just realised that I posted a similar Throwback Thursday post almost a year ago to the day.  Must be mid-summer when I realise how glad I am that we bought our rPod! 🙂 Anyhow, above is a picture of Shea as she went with my parents to pick up our rPod three summers ago […]

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 […]
