{said with so much excitement I could burst}

We had a remarkable weekend and a wonderful start to summer 2014! 

Friday was the twins last day of Kindergarten {sniff}, so after some morning festivities at the school we went to ‘Food Truck Fridays’ downtown with some friends and ate lunch in the park. Some of the best food is served out the side of a truck. Just sayin’.

Katie has been asking for months to go on a picnic, she’s kinda obsessed with them, so she was especially thrilled that we went. While we ate, there was a live band down the block, so the kids danced in the grass and put on quite the show. Then Friday evening, we went to a birthday party and again the kids played until they were delirious from exhaustion.

Saturday we left for camping, it’s the 6th weekend in a row that we went to our creek property. As usual, it was blissful to sit back and relax in beautiful surroundings. 


Sunday we came home and did the laundry/house thing to prep for my oldests last week in Grade 4. It was a simply gorgeous day, so after dinner I took the kids to the ice cream shop to toast the first weekend of summer. Like you need an excuse to drop everything and get ice cream, right?

In all, it was a weekend spent taking in local events, eating good food, playing in the warm sun and spending much time with friends and family.

We only have 9 weekends of summer … I just had to go there, right? UGH! It’ll go by way too quickly as usual, so make the most of it! OK, lecture over – putting away the Mother hat. 

How did you spend the first weekend of summer?




  1. Love it – we spent the first weekend of Summer heading to chicago – no bright sunny days here – nothing but rain and fog, but we did enjoy some ice cream anyway 🙂

  2. I can’t believe it’s just the first week of summer – my kids have been out of school for weeks. We celebrated by going on a bike ride by the river!

  3. Sounds like you are enjoying it for sure. It does go pretty quick! We went and watched the Test and Tune before race day, looked at Flea Markets, had a date day and just enjoyed the nice weather!

  4. I will be so happy when the warm weather hits here,at least the rain has stopped…..

  5. That sounds like a great kick-of to summer! We had a great weekend, too. We’ve had our fair share of Baskin Robbins, Cold Stone, and Froyo in the 3 weeks we’ve been out of school. After having spent a few weeks just chilling around town, we’re pretty settled into our summer routine and loving it! Enjoy the rest of your summer 🙂

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! 9 more?!! I have never eaten from a food truck before! I think I should try it!

  7. looked like you had an awesome first weekend of summer 🙂
    every weekend we are going for ice cream lol
    we celebrated the first day of summer by going to Casey’s and hanging out on their patio

  8. Always nice to have a getaway place! We’ve had summer here for a good month since Lily got out of school May 23rd, and I’m constantly trying to plan some weekend adventure!

  9. Sounds like a great way to start the summer. My boys finished up school on the 20th and my dd is finishing up her last week of juniour kindergarten. Looking forward to our official start to summer this weekend!
