Playing Tourist

Early in June we got some awesome news.  Cousin Meahgan was moving to town for a summer job with the federal government. With none of Dan’s family in town, we were pumped that we were going to see Cousin Maggun (Wes’ pronunciation, not mine) more often.  And we’ve been spoiled ever since.  At least weekly visits and sometimes more.  We heart her.

A few weeks ago, Aunt Michelle, Meahgan’s mama, flew in for a visit.  It was a quick trip, but a busy one.  There were many plans (Meahgan is an expert planner) but we fit in what we could.  And we had a blast doing it.


When you live in a city for a long time, you don’t really take advantage of all that it has to offer, until a guest comes to town.  I’m so thankful to Cousin Meahgan and Aunt Michelle for reminding us how awesome our city (and the surrounding area) is.

A crazy hot day and lots of touring made the impromptu stop at Meech Lake for a swim totally worth it.  Even without suits!

My ‘shy’ girl saw these ladies dancing with hula hoops while at Bluesfest and had the gumption to go ask if she could use their spare.  She then did her own interpretive dance right with them for the next 30 minutes.  Not as shy as I thought.

And then it was off to Kingston for a tour of my Alma Mater and a leisurely boat ride down through the 1000 Islands.

 That is a stick covered in nasty spiderwebs that she collected from between the rocks on the shore.  Gag.

Until next time…..
