Another week has come and gone.  Where does the time go?  Having active grandchildren has kept us very busy.  We actually had all 5 in one place for a short period of time to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st.  Thank you H for gathering the clan together.  She promoted a BBQ and everyone left full.

The youngest 2 grandchildren managed to share their space.  Of course the stroller was a contentious issue as they both have called dibs on it for napping.  Somehow there are long walks involved to get E or F asleep.  E and L worked diligently to set up the train set and played for hours on the grass. R was a big help and enjoyed her time with her aunt C and her great aunt B as well as cousin P.  These 3 share a wardrobe together.

D H is a fantastic grammpy. He manages to make sure all of the children can play safely. He knows all of the best parks in the area from the ones with swings and splash pads and the ones with climbing apparatus.

Our time together is getting shorter as we prepare to head out for our cruise and H and her family will head for home. We will have one more family dinner and hope to get together for Christmas.

It has been a lot of work with a lot of fun and laughter.  Family time is the best time.
