Frame-A-Day Week 34: 8/20-8/26

August 20--At Last--A friend of mine married her long, long time beau today.  They have been together almost as long as Chretien and I (11 years), so the time had finally come.  The groom is Jewish, and here we see the traditional hora being danced to Hava Nagila.  The wedding was a lot of fun, and included a spectacular display of fireworks, which Imp in particular really enjoyed.

August 21--Someday has Arrived--Back on July 6, we saw Earnest longingly watching a roller coaster next to the post which clearly showed that he was not tall enough to ride.  Due to a less stringent ride operator at a different amusement park, Earnest rode the Comet!  It was his first 'real' roller coaster and quite a ride, despite the casual appearance that Chretien is displaying with his trademark wave.

August 22--Down the Toilet Bowl--The official name of this ride is "Mega Wedgie", although calling it the toilet bowl works just as well.  Chretien, and later Trust and Earnest, loved it.

August 23--Sketching Spiderman--The kids haven't decorated our driveway in awhile, and Earnest created his own superhero masterpiece in a very short time today.

*August 24--Kindergarten Playdate--A kindergarten playdate at school was held today, where the incoming kindergarteners could come and meet new friends, play on the playground, and eat pizza.  Earnest is thrilled that a friend from daycare will be joining him at school.  The boys hadn't seen each other since June, and were so excited to be reunited.

August 25--Down on the Farm--We visited a local farm today for the first time. The kids really enjoyed it; there was a tram which took us to the U-pick area, where we got some peaches, and there was a huge play area where we spent most of our time. On a weekday during the off-season, it was a lot of fun and relatively quiet. It probably gets very busy as high season hits in another month or so.

August 26--No Fear--Chretien took this Smartphone photo at a playground and sent it to me with just the subject line "no fear". I quipped that we'd better not show my mother, especially given Imp's history at playgrounds. (Last summer he fell from a fairly low height and broke his hip.)
