Victoria Day Weekend

What a gorgeous weekend.  I haven't gone to the cottage on the Victoria Day Weekend in quite a few years because it is absolutely the worst weekend for black flies in Ontario. We went up to clean the property fully anticipating the worst.  What we got was three beautiful summer days of 28C, sunshine and NO BUGS!  Talk about a fluke.  We mowed and raked and sat outside all weekend.  The black flies were apparently horrible last weekend, but now they are gone for the season.  

Brooklyn on the right and on the left is Ben's girlfriend Courtney who was such a big help.




Saturday night Sam won every round of Uno.


On Monday we arrived home just in time to get Brooklyn to her first soccer game of the season and her first goal of the season too.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend was had by all. I'm so envious of your cottage! We have rented cottages on Lake Michigan but the cost is pretty high and we were never able to afford more than 1 week. On the other hand, we never had to do any of the work either! Great photos of the event, including the dog~cute!
