Dianne invited Matthew and I along on a tour of the RCMP stables and picnic. We were hoping to catch a practice for the musical ride afterwards, but sadly they were too close to leaving on tour and don't need their noon practices anymore.
Matthew enjoyed seeing the horses very much. He was also thrilled to take TWO busses home, which was surprisingly painless until he passed out and I had to walk the last ten minutes in the hot sun with a sleeping child who could not be roused. Then I realized I had left my keys in my coat and was locked out of the house with said sleeping child for a bit as Daddy was at a meeting. Luckily we'd already pulled out the deck furniture so I put my feet up and relaxed until rescue arrived.
