Our neighbour next door invited us to her birthday weekend celebrations, which was a marvellous excuse to leave our children with Uncle Chris for two nights in a row! We went to Fauna for a marvellous dinner Friday night and then headed to their cottage for an afternoon of swimming, hiking, eating, and generally puttering around on the water. Amelia's favourite part was watching Rafale swim and have his first canoe ride. Matthew's favourite part was kayaking up the creek with Noemie - further than anyone else! Elizabeth's favourite part was playing frisbee with Alex, his friend and Trevor.
