Canada Day

Canada Day Long Weekend {Recap}

July 3, 2012

Adam and I headed out of town this past weekend for a little R&R!

We went across the border to the states to spend the weekend at his family’s vacation getaway. We left in the afternoon, thankfully, because it was the only sunny afternoon the entire weekend. After we arrived, we took advantage of the sun and went for a bike ride around the complex and down to the pool for a swim, followed by dinner with the fam and some drinks by the fire with their friends. Even though the rest of the weekend was pretty rainy and cloudy, we still managed to have a full weekend! We biked, went for a swim, went shopping (Marhsall’s, Target, Trader Joes, etc), stopped at the casino, made some delicious s’mores, got to hang out with Adam’s family, especially our adorable little niece! Adam and his dad were going to go golfing Monday morning, but the weather wasn’t great. We also got cheap butter and eggs. Bonus! Cake making and cupcakes are in the future..

It was a great weekend away! And now the countdown to Europe is on! 21 days to go.. the next few weeks are going to be full of packing! both for the trip as well as the big move! Our lives will now consist of searching for packaging boxes..

Here’s some pics from the weekend!
