Rebecca returned home with us and we have enjoyed having her visit for the past week.
We have played Scrabble, Sequence and even did a 1,000 piece puzzle in two days.
Tomorrow, we take her back to Port Moody and Jessica will be very pleased to have her back as she really misses her.
We also went for rides in the boat and swam in the lake - I think we have a new boat navigator........#

Once again, the Golf Tournament and family reunion was a great success. It is so much fun to see all the relatives and renew friendships.
The tournament was superbly organized, a big "Thank You", to the organizing committee from Trail and Fruitvale.
We now will look forward to The 13th Annual Tournament - to be held in Central Alberta (Sylvan Lake or somewhere near)next year.They were awarded the big trophy - - we know Robert, Bernice, Darrel and Mike will do a Marvelous job of organizing too.
This year, Van was awarded the "Best Dressed" trophy in his tie dyed shirt and matching shorts---- Jim, from "Caddyshack" received a nice yellow rain hat to go with his outfit as the "runner up".#

I had a wonderful time at the golf - it was the first year that I did not golf at all - I volunteered to look after the children and what a great opportunity it was to get to know the youngest generation. Rebecca was a great help as she could keep up to the fast hikers and was the Lifguard at the beach.
For the two days I was known as "Mother Goose" and we had a fun time - at the beach, and at the campground.
Harry, Josh and Corbin loved making ditches and "Mother Goose" had a good time blowing bubbles for Jessica and Cadie.#
