Let the Summer begin...ok so we're a week early

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Although our summer weather has not yet begun, our summer festivities have started and are in full swing.

Our weekend festivities started on Friday night at my in-laws cottage where we enjoyed a very yummy BBQ...and then being the responsible plankers that we are, we decided that we need to work off the bevy's we were about to consume, by #plankingbythefire first

Even got proof the MIL has joined our June challenge

...and then onto the real fun part of the campfire's at my in-laws...the burning of old furniture...

On Saturday I had to run K into town for a bday party that she was attending...but then it was back to cottage life by dinner time. Another BBQ down, a walk along the beach

Sun going down at Ipperwash

and then it was time for #plankingbythefire again...

CRMike can't keep his shirt on for some reason

Look we even got my FIL and neighbour roped into participating tonight!!!

CRMike will never make it as Paparazzi

Sunday morning rolled around and it was time it get back to business. It has been 2 weeks since I last ran (at the race), and although it was a nice break, I was really looking forward to jumping back into my 1/2 marathon training schedule again

And quick change and packing up of the cottage and it was time to head to the family Father's Day BBQ

A big huge thanks to Jon and Emily for hosting :)

What ya'll think of grandpa's Father's Day you think he liked it?!?!?

The kids had a great time all running around and playing in the backyard

...of course our summer weekend weather in Ontario would not be complete if there wasn't a freak storm

Yes...that is hail out back...

What better way to end the weekend festivities...a little night cap in the hot tub

How's everyone's planks going?!?

What was the best part of your weekend?

-spending it with my entire family...the most important people in life!!!
