I have had a fun summer doing other things as well. I joined the 365 project back in April and have had a lot of fun taking a picture (or more) every day. I have spent a lot of time at Assiniboine Park taking pictures of the flowers and the butterflies and birds. Here are some of my favorites:
I also flew to Texas to take care of G-Man and his little sister L while his mom and dad went to the Olympics. And while on an early flight from Montreal (where Allan and I had gone to enjoy a dinner cruise (a business thing) to Texas, I captured this amazing view out my window on the plane.
I had a blast taking care of these little ones. They are so cute. I don't get to spend much time with them throughout the year so it was a real joy to get to know them better. One of my favorite things was listening to G-Man as he would use his imagination while playing with his Legos and have adventures with them. I learned a lot about Octonauts, Doc McStuffin, and I know a lot more superheroes than I ever did before!!! I had a ball doing Motorboat in the pool with little L.
Here are a few shots from the visit
When Macy got home we drove to Waco and met up for dinner with Chris and Heather. So great to see them--it felt like it had been ages!!!!
It was a wonderful trip.
I am near the end of my marathon training--only 3 1/2 weeks to go until the marathon. My blisters and toes are doing a whole lot better. I have a 22 miler to run this Saturday--sure hope they hold up.
