Highlights from our 2017 Summer
Is it really almost Halloween? We’ve been a little quite around here lately because we’ve just completed an 8 week kitchen renovation that turned our world upside down for a while. You can see the before and after photos on our Facebook page.
We’ve had a busy summer. It felt like every week was full of activity. We didn’t have any big trips this summer but we did visit Niagara Falls, Lake Simcoe in Ontario, Cancun, Nashville, Fort Lauderdale and several locations in British Columbia.
I had good intentions of writing about each of these trips, but time has once again escaped me. I took a lot of photos, too. In fact, I have so many photos that I don’t know where to start. So, today I’m going to share a few photos that tell our summer story.
