Family Time

My brother and sis-in-law, PT and Teresa, drove up from Calgary to spend the weekend with us.  It was great to see them and we had a lot of fun together.  It just so happens that it has been reeeally hot here these past few days (hot here = 80s) so we decided to take the kids to Edmonton's newest spray park.  Everyone and their grandma were at the same park.  It was nice but very hard for the kids to enjoy since there were people everywhere.

The kids have been looking forward all week to going bowling.  We decided to hold off our bowling fun until Cau Son (Uncle PT) and Co Teresa (Auntie) came to visit.  The last time Grace went was when she was 3 and Jeremy has never been.  It happened to be Neon Bowling, and the kids got to use the bumpers.  Jason scored the highest, then Grace, and Jeremy and I tied for last place.  Um, yeah, it's been a long, long time since I've been bowling!

After church the next day, we went out for our annual family dinner.  Yup, our entire family is together for only one meal every year, particularly since we only visit in the summer. 

We spent the rest of the afternoon at a blues festival called, Blues on Whyte. It was the 100th anniversary of the Commercial Hotel, a venue known for its blues music.  This is one thing that Jason has been really looking forward to.  An entire city block was closed off, there were 14 bands that played on 2 stages and a beer garden.  Vendors were set up in the street, along with some food trucks that we have been wanting to try.  We sat on a curb, listened to some music, people-watched (the perfect place for this) and just hung out.  

We had a great visit with Cau Son and Co Teresa.  We won't get to see them again until next summer!

So fun! I'm jealous of the blues fest. I want to know if you got to use bumpers for your bowling :)
