Tubing was a great hit today.  The kids pretty much all spend the entire ride with their hands in the air making the "go faster" sign.  Somewhat miraculously none of them have been ejected from the tube yet.  After tubing we went to the library for cupcakes and then booted Erika and Elizabeth out of the van way down the road so they could run back.  In the afternoon we had Mr. Bear's treasure hunt.  Despite many years of incident free treasure and scavenger hunts this week we had three injuries including a rather impressive foot injury which kind of put a damper on the end of the hunt.  One of the girls managed to slice her foot open while running through the water by bringing her foot down super hard on a ginormous clam which was embedded in the sand in the shallow water pointing straight up.  A freak accident but still very traumatic for all involved.  In the end though all was sorted out and everyone made the best of things.  The next few days the girl was hoping around the resort and even out canoeing.  We made the older kids kick the pinata instead of hitting it with the stick as this was slightly more challenging for most of them.

Elizabeth led a few others in some exercise on the beach before the wiener roast and seed spitting contest.  Michael even managed to spit his corn kernel this week instead of just chewing on it.

Today we said goodbye to the hippo house and to Grandpa who will be going back to Angola before get back from the cottage.

It was time to leave the cottage for the wedding and since it was supposed to be rainy later in the afternoon it wasn't too sad to tear ourselves away. It was somewhat painful to pack up the cottage but they let us leave stuff there to be transferred to Clover so that was very much appreciated.


When we arrived in Kitchener we went to Mongolian Village for supper and then picked Daddy up from the train (his first time travelling by himself ever! He says it was surprisingly relaxing to travel without children.) Janice, Grandma and Grandma and our family were all staying at Auntie Mary's hippo house overnight. The kids got to stay up late and play team Ticket To Ride.

We had a scavenger hunt with as many of the Bondi kids as I could convince to join us. They had to find items in the colour of the rainbow, items that were alive, items that started with all the vowels. I made them make Bs for Bondi with their bodies, stand over water for five seconds and build a summer snowman.


Great fun was had by all.
