Friday 24th –
Morning was spent preparing for the fun filled day ahead 😊
Mom made some tasty wraps for lunch.
Homemade Reese’s pieces, happy looking, bright flowers and boterkoek.
Boterkoek better than any I’ve yet to have in Holland 🙈😁👌🏻
Nathin was busy with yard work that morning so when Jess and Leah arrived he quickly took a group photo for us, said bye to his wife and then we kicked him off the property😜
Spencer and Chase were slightly outnumbered 8-2, but that would change come supper time when the all the guys joined us 😁
Us girls spent the afternoon soaking up the rays from our ‘pool’ and lawn chairs.
Some badminton was attempted, snacks ate and pina colada like drinks, drank 🏸🍹😋
It was a splendid way to spend Friday 💕
Once supper time drew near all the guys appeared.
Burgers, macaroni salad, chips, drinks and pleasant company to eat it all with 😊
Once the coffee and drumstick cake had settled, some games of badminton begun.
Since Pro and I aren’t specifically talented in the sports area of life, the thrill of having a good rally of the badminton ball (we use a training golf ball as a birdie replacement since it was always to windy to use a real birdie, #Sasklife) often brings too much excitement and we lose control 😁
The games were still fairly decent and much laughter and energy was spent by all 😉🏸👌🏻
Eventually the fun had to come to an end, so
goodbyes were said and kids then put to bed😜
Saturday 25th –
It was a day of mostly rest and recuperation from the previous day’s sun soaking, which is harder on a person than one may think 😏
Mom and Pro were going to exercise and I had nothing better to do and I’d feel pathetic if I didn’t join them, so I did 😋
Jogging and weights… All just to suffer through and then feel the extreme need to stuff myself with food pretty much immediately after😏
Chicken burger was the lunch menu and it tasted splendid.
Though it really wasn’t anything special so I think it was the over exerted brain cells talking🤔
I had writing and photos to finish up and sort through and Pro had a Lego house to build Alaina😏
We took Lego very seriously growing up.
We had towns, hotels, stores, houses, stables and more.
Our Lego horses got white stickers put on them so they had stars, socks, or were of the paint horse variety.
Our stables were enclosed by fencing that boasted of thread, strategically wound on the Lego bricks to create a barbed wire fence illusion.
The houses had tile flooring, tiled and landscaped outdoor areas including pools and or outdoor showers.
Life was good in Lego town 😎👌🏻🏘🐴💎💰
Awhile back mom got it into her head that the Lego needed washing, which is partially understandable.
(I do have to mention that the cleaning process meant she took apart structures we created and kept built for years and in doing so I feel like she crushed some of my childhood memories but that is besides the point🙄)
The non understandable part is that she also sorted it…by color 😳
Who color sorts Lego… Which children will be using?!
When Pro brought the Lego up to build Al’s house, she stated that the Lego was all messed up so it would be hard to find the right pieces.
Dad made us ladies some Clamato drinks to enjoy whist waiting for the pierogi pizza mom had made to cook.
It turned out very nummily 😁👌🏻🍕My uncle who lives in Ontario had made a pierogi pizza last time mom was there visiting, so it inspired her to do the same.
Yes I understand it may sound like a weird combination to some of you, maybe it’s the distant Ukrainian coming out in us 😏
That evening the rain finally came down and it was much needed after multiple days in the high 20’s. 🌧☔️
