It was summer again and time to visit with our grandsons. Roman and
Atticus were flying to Montreal without their parents to spend several weeks
with us. All went well this year, although we missed having Erica and Andrew
visit us in Ottawa. We drove to meet the boys in Montreal and took them back
with us to Ottawa. Ross arrived on the next weekend with his youngest son,
Gavin, to spend the next three weeks with his cousins. All three boys spend
a week at Dovercourt Day Camp and enjoyed it thoroughly.
this year was on Big Clear Lake outside Arden, a small town about 3/4 hour
west of Perth. Ross, Sherri, Tyler and Ryan joined us for the weekend. The
older boys and Sherri went back to their jobs in Barrie, leaving Ross, Ray
and me with the three boys. Everyone had a good time swimming in the lake,
fishing for bass and sunfish, paddling the canoes and going for walks.
Almost every night we had a campfire and toasted s'mores. It left all of us
looking forward to the next summer at a cottage again.
Back in Ottawa
with Gavin, Atticus and Roman, we had time to visit Mont Cascade Waterpark,
play minigolf and visit the Parliament Buildings to see the changing of the
guard. The boys also discovered lots of Pokemon sites in downtown Ottawa. We
will have to come up with more activities next year for the annual grandsons
