Fun In Kitchener

 We spent the Labour Day weekend exploring the fun things around Kitchener. Saturday we headed to Anna Mae's in Millbank to have lunch with Ian, Brittany, Emma and Drew. They have finished the renovations and it looks amazing. They have a bigger area for all the baked goods and the seating area has expanded. We arrived just as the crowd was building so we got seated quite quickly. We enjoyed a yummy meal and dessert as well as great company. After we finished it was time to swap the prisoner as Ian referred to it! Drew was heading to their house for game time and Emma was coming with Pop's and Mamie for a sleep over. On our way home we stopped at Herrle's Farm Market so Emma could play and we could pick up some veggies. We had lots of fun playing and exploring the Conestoga wagon. After our very late arrival back home Emma had a short nap before we made her supper. Duncan and I were not hungry after our delicious lunch.
 Sunday we had great fun playing with Emma. In the afternoon Joe, Deborah & Katie came for a visit. They were in town getting Taylor all set up in her residence as she is starting university at W.L.U. It was great to see them but we had to cut our visit a little short as we were heading to Ian's for chinese supper and ice cream cake for a late birthday celebration for Duncan. We also were celebrating Drew finishing college and his full time job at SAP. We had a nice visit and did the prisoner swap again as Drew was now coming home with us. Today was also the 5th anniversary of mom's passing so she was on my mind most of the day. Joe and I reminisced and found it hard to believe that so much time has passed.
 Monday I was busy doing laundry and cleaning up after our weekend with Emma. When I get to spend time with her I don't like to do any chores if possible as I want to spend as much time playing with her. It was a great weekend and having Emma made up for not being away. I have to admit I did miss the campfire but Mike was kind enough to send me a photo of theirs to enjoy. Thanks Mike.
 This weekend we are heading to Point Farms and will be spending time at the Blyth Threshers Steam Show. We are hoping we don't get rained on.
P.S. I have also discovered that short tail the chipmunk has little ones that are just starting to venture out of their burrow. I have been having great fun watching and photographing them as they start to explore the outside world.
