September 4-6th 2009: Our friends Dave and Gerri lent us their camp for a weekend getaway at the lake.
We had the whole place to ourselves and had so much fun.
We lounged around in our PJ's all day long - except when we had our bathing suits on!

August 14th - Mom and I took a trip to Minneapolis to go to the Mall of America (the 2nd largest mall in the world). It was my first overnight without MacKenzie and I did very well. I have to admit I did look at some pictures of her the next morning but all in all a very successful trip.
Here we are at about the half way point. Altogether it was about a 6 1/2 hour drive.
August 11th - Mom came to Thunder Bay to visit for a week. We went blueberry picking with Sarah and stopped to dip our feet in the river.
MacKenzie was having so much fun splashing that she wouldn't look at the camera. So Nana started dropping water on her head to get her to look up. Not only did she love it but it worked too. Your Nana is super smart Onyx!

July 24-25th : I won tickets on a local radio station to go to "RetroFest". The weekend was filled with music from the 1960's-1990's. Although it was pretty gloomy all weekend - we got wet a few times - it was a really fun concert.
Nancy was there representing our local member of Parliment Michael Gravelle - and she got wet too!
Once again MacKenzie is dancing with Nancy.
The Headliner for the weekend was none other than Chubby Checker and boy did he put on a show. Part of the weekend pass was an opportunity to meet him in person but after the show was over he was too tired to meet with us - no big suprise , he is almost 70 years old.
Although Willy was a super friendly Mascot, MacKenzie was a little bit afraid of him. But she got a sticker and all was well.

We decided to go on Friday night to listen to the Reggae music.
My friend Sarah and I have been going for walks 3 times a week. Here we are at the golf course
There are beautiful sights to see at the Marina. MacKenzie enjoyed spinning the telescope around and around.
Thunder Bay has alot of Conservation areas. This one has cascading waterfalls that people slide down in the summer.

June 29th 2009 - Your dad was in Montreal for a few months to see you Onyx. So on his way back to Vancouver he stopped by to meet MacKenzie for the first time.
They hit it off right away - kisses all around!
Jaia giving MacKenzie her first driving lesson.
