But life evolves, and this summer we were only scheduled for two weeks of duty. Last week was supposed to be one of those weeks, but Mom ended up taking them on a work trip which extended into some fun as well, including a visit to Niagara Falls.
So we only had them for one day and didn't plan a lot as they have been going hither, thither and yon this month.
We stayed in the house for the first half of the morning, during which time, Danica took it upon herself to explain the deeper aspects of the iPad, which old Buppa might not know about.
|Trying to teach this old gut is so funny.|
Danica had mentioned that she wanted to go shopping downtown, so that was the next item of business.
We checked out a few shops, bought nothing (Yay!) and found ourselves on a downtown dock that we didn't know existed. It was just off the parking lot and is for cottagers up on Mississippi Lake should they want to visit downtown Carleton Place.
After a lunch of bagels at Tims and a little rest, we headed to the good neighbours' pool.
Once AC decided to get in, he ended up in a watergun fight ...
... with JJ, who really got into it.
A good time was had by all.
We are off of official kid duty until the end of August, but Mom has them for a staycation this week, so I am sure that we will spend some time with them.
