Today I found myself wandering around downtown when I saw this in a little parkette. It looks quite impressive, but I couldn’t figure out if it was supposed to be a Fountain or a Splash pad for kids to play in.

Violet heads to her second overnight camp of the summer. This is her usually overnight camp. This is the 4th time she’s gone. The second time it’s for 2 weeks. I know she’ll have a blast, but I’m a little sad that we won’t see her for another two weeks, and when she’s back summer is pretty much over.
As I try to get back into posting a picture every day, I still find days where I have failed to capture a moment worth sharing. On days where that happens, I plan on going through my thousands of photos at sharing a moment from years past. Today I have a picture from August 24 2016, one of the scariest moments I’ve had as a driver. While driving home from Oakville with the kids and my mom my tire blew out. I managed to get from the left lane to the right shoulder where we waited first for Suzanne, who took the kids and my mom to safety, then the tow truck.
This summer we planted our first Rose bush in our little flower garden. Back in June when the first flowers bloomed it was great. When they blew away I thought we were done for the year, but looked forward till next summer when we’d have new roses to admire. So I was surprised this week when I saw new flowers starting to bloom on our little Rosebush.
On the Friday before the Long weekend, I noticed a lot of workers in our neighbourhood park. At first, I thought they were just doing repairs but it soon became clear that they were taking everything down. I believe it’s for an upgrade to the park, but apart from an announcement for consultations from 2017 I haven’t found the plans. At the time I thought it strange that they would do it right before a long weekend. A weekend that usually sees lots of kids playing in the park. I assumed that they would begin work on Tuesday, but as you can see, they haven’t.
