Summertime Love!

I'm into my second day of vacation (yay!) and the summer (though the weather would have me believe otherwise) has been great.  I can't even begin to talk about all the wonderful things I've been up to this past month, but big breath in...and....

Bought a ninja hoop!

Learning a new hoop trick.  But the fact that I'm no longer ten years old, coupled with hooping for 4 hours, makes for lots of bruises!

Drinking chilly cucumber water with yummy snacks with Michelle, Jill and Erin in Michelle's huge backyard.

Venturing up to Runnymede and St. Clair for the first time (which felt like heading up to Brampton) and sipping wine with Mandy and Hari (they have a treehouse!)

Driving way up north to our now-yearly tradition Great Blue cottage!  Unfortunately Shayne couldn't make it this time, but the rest of the company was fantastic.  Lots of rain, but it didn't dampen our spirits.  Cottage love: hula hooping in the dark drizzle, loons, watching the sun rise, spening the morning with chattering geese, amazing food, campfire, old 90's movies, Mike Myers, giant family style dinner, hooping inside, hammock, BBQ, cider, wine, laughter.

First time doing laundry on College - different world and it threw me off!

Tea party shoot in music garden

Cadillac for father's day lunch

Breaking into my new townhouse complex

Drinks in Daniel and Ryan's awesome new backyard

Father's day dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's place (and enjoying the sun on their flower filled balcony)

BBQ in Erin's backyard, and teaching the girls some hoop moves in the nighttime park across the street.

Kitschy bowling on the Danforth for Mike and Marnie's pre-wedding celebration

Heading to the island again for Daniel's birthday with the same crew (almost) as two years ago!

Watching Dirty Dancing again (haha love it!)

Last day of work (yay!)

Visiting with Erica in Trinity Bellwoods, then helping Shayne with a Capoeira photo shoot (which was amazing!)  I absolutely love watching it, but there is no way I'd ever attempt to try it!

Seeing the Weber Brothers again with Tess, Daniel and Sean at the Cadillac Lounge.

Starting hoop classes with Michelle tonight at the circus!

And my first attempt at taking pictures with a real camera!
