Peter Hallman Ball Yard, June 21-23, 2013

Duncan & I put in a full week-end at the Legends Fastball Tournament here in Kitchener this past week-end so there was no relaxing by a campfire. We did however get to camp at the diamond so it was a week-end away. We were running the concession for the tournament so Duncan was doing lots of grilling. I set up & helped in the kitchen and Anne and I were looking after the finances for the week-end. A big thank-you to Drew for spending most of the week-end helping us. It was wonderful having you there and we received compliments from people who enjoyed your company and all your hard work. It was a very hot and humid week-end so I am sure Duncan and  Drew sweated off a few pounds working at the bbq. I was able to take a bit of time to try and get a few pictures. I spotted a pair of Cedar Waxwings building a nest in a tree behind the motor home so I enjoyed some time watching them work away together. It was a successful week-end so all the hard work was worth it. The local Children's Wish Foundation supplies a number of volunteers and will get a donation for all there hard work. A special thanks to Anne from Children's Wish. It was a pleasure working with you and your wonderful volunteers. Duncan & I are both looking forward to a very relaxing long week-end at Awenda.

I was able to get a picture of Anne. 
She is always taking photo's of all her volunteers.
