Where are we?



Monday, July 12, 2021


Gabriel starts his week at fun camp today. It is at the Yara Centre in Moose Jaw. He cannot wait. Kristin found this week of day camp and got Gabriel registered. The day camp is about holidays. Here are some of the holidays they will celebrate. Valentine St-Patrick day, Canada Day, etc. Thanks, Kristin, this is a great idea.


Day one. Yara is an international fertilizer company that has a mine nearby. They donate lots of monies for stuff like the Yara Centre.


A little history about the name Yara. The name Yara stems from an old runic symbol and the word “jardar” in the old Norse language of the Vikings. It means a good harvest — a good year. The image of the Viking ship that’s been a part of our logo for almost 100 years represents our heritage and our endless quest for knowledge.

Since it is just Michele and me, I decided to cook my breakfast sausages on the new grill on the BBQ. It works great.


It is a hot day (+35° C). They have planned most of the activities indoors.
Gabriel comes out at the end of the day pretty tired, but happy.
 

Back at the campground, time for the cold ice cream.


Jeremy and Natasha came for a visit before supper. It is the first time Natasha spends some time inside the MH.


One happy boy.

He is ready for another day.


Gabriel is eating the same thing as me for breakfast, one egg and two sausages.


Today's holiday is Halloween. Gabriel is dressed as a police officer.


Ready to protect and serve.


In the lobby of the Yara Centre is a message board. This message was on it.


This was another busy day for Gabriel. He is tired.


What? Crepes for supper! My mom made those for me. Now Michele makes them for Gabriel and me. He loves them.


Another visit from Jeremy and Natasha. Kristin takes this time for either gym or playing Baseball.
 

Nothing like a daddy as a cushion.


Danielle, Gabriel's mom, asked Gabriel to write a diary about his time with his dad. This way, he remembers what happened during his stay. Good idea.

He is a happy boy when he wakes up.


Today's day camp is at the Kinsmen Sportsplex.


This is the inside of the Sportsplex.


And a rink.


They played floor hockey in the morning and went to the pool in the afternoon.
He loved his day.


Back at the campground, Jeremy has the fishing rods all set up for fishing.
The chances of catching a fish here are pretty slim. It is almost a swamp.


Fishing is hard...
   

Kristin came for a visit with Natasha before supper.


What is this?


Gabriel and Jeremy are having fun with the RC cars.


Natasha is eating the leftover crepes. She does not have a sweet tooth yet.


Kristin and Natasha left before supper.
We had chicken wrapped in bacon for supper.


At the same time...


There is nothing like a good snack and a little TV before bedtime.

Another beautiful and hot morning. What a view from the back of the MH.


Today they have a bouncy castle and a slide.


A new message on the board.


With Gabriel at the day camp, we get the MH ready for traveling.


We will be home in less than 15 minutes.


With the MH all set up in the driveway, I finish the installation of the pool. It is another hot day (35° C).


When Gabriel is back home, we went in the pool, but the water is still pretty cold.

A morning with Natasha, she loves my egg and sausages.
 

Nothing changes, still hot out there. We play outside for a while.


This is the last day of day camp for Gabriel. Today is the celebration of Canada day.


This is the inside of the Yara Centre. This is only half of the inside. Three corridors are running/walking areas along the exterior walls. They also have all the exercise equipment.


Back home, Jeremy is back from his bike ride and needs to cool off.


Natasha is out and about with grand-maman.
 

A childhood friend of Kristin is in town. They are going for lunch. Natasha is going with them.
 

Natasha plays outside once she is back home. Jeremy loves to tease her and she loves to be teased.


Abby, Kristin's friend.


A good snack and some TV time before bedtime.


With Natasha in bed, Gabriel and I went for a dip in the pool.
 

Just like the little one, he has to have a snack and some TV time before bedtime.


Gabriel is very tired from his week at the camp.


We have smoke in the air from all the forest fires up northern Saskatchewan.

Natasha did not have a good night of sleep. She is still very tired this morning.


But she loves having breakfast with grand-papa. It makes her feel better.


This morning Jeremy and Gabriel are out fishing with some friends on some river south of Moose Jaw. They had fun and caught some fish.


Kristin is preparing some protein balls for her lunch. Natasha and grand-maman are watching and learning.


Mommy reading to Natasha.


The two muchachos.


After I did some stuff outside, I went in the pool to cool off. It is hot and humid today, again!


Our grand-kids.
   
 

In the afternoon, it was time for everyone, almost, to be in the pool. This is the first time Natasha wears her life vest. She gets better quickly. She can touch the bottom so she moves around. She loves the pool.
   
 

One of the jobs I did this morning was cleaning the patio stones. This way, we can use the patio.
 

The little family.

Another breakfast with grand-papa.
 

And a long walk to make that breakfast go down...
 

Jeremy, Kristin and Gabriel went fishing for carps at Buffalo Pound. They were with friends.
 

Kristin caught two nice carps.
   

Jeremy had to ask his friend for a "ride" to get his fish from weeds.


They all had a great time this morning.


Francis with his carp.


Gabriel is so tired, he fell asleep in the car.


Natasha still has lots of fun.
   
   
   
 

There is nothing like good ice cream for dessert.


An afternoon nap?
 

Two very happy grand-parents.


After Natasha good nap, time for the pool.


Until next time.

Life is good...
