Weekending- a nice hot one

It was HOT this weekend.... and I'm totally not complaining.... we didn't take enough pics but here's what we were up to:

- It was our turn to host our summer neighbourhood happy hour  at 6:30on Friday (BYOB and  everyone brings an app to share) and it was the largest one ever as D invited some other neighbours and friends... think 30 people and 6 kids. The previous owner who designed the house also came (eeeep) so we were nervous as we've changed a few things but he was very complimentary. Our last guests left about midnight so it was more than just 'happy hour' but it was a wonderful time. We cleaned up before bed to wake up to a fresh shiny house....

- Saturday morning was spent doing some laundry and having breakfast outside.

- D's aunt and uncle came to meet us for lunch. It was wonderful catching up with them! We all had meal envy for D's mushroom salad and I'm going to make one this week!

- We tried taking a walk along the river but the extra hot temps did not permit. 

- Very last minute, D invited a friend and his family for a swim and simple dinner. We put some shrimp and chicken burgers on the grill and leftover apps and dessert from the night before. #winning #wastenotwantnot

- Sunday was spent doing some cooking, cleaning, pool time, pizza (cauli crust for me and D) and board games before watching Little House and the Prairie as a family before bed.

Now it's Monday morning and I need to wake up my kids to get ready for school!!!

More sass than size

We saw this heron from the window of the river


So many weddings-- I think we saw three... those brides must have been sweating!

Family is everything!

Happy Monday, friends!! Make yourselves a wonderful week!

  7. I can't believe it's that hot in Ontario but hopefully that gives the girls some extra pool time before the seasons kick in. I'm sure you and D hosted an amazing party for the neighbors ~ Trinis do it best! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
