Twas another HUGE weekend

The August long weekend is a busy one around here.  First off my cousin Lin, her husband and 3 of their kids came to stay with us and join in the fun of the Summer's Art's festival in sunny Fort Qu'Appelle.  There was lots of art for sale and viewing, but my kids loved the kid's stations the best.  Emora made some bracelets, painted a rock and got her face painted.  The big kids did a scavenger hunt and earned a free book.

Can you say lotsa kids!

And next up-- GH Summit- and while they set up, Sheena gave some intros and invited

Ivan to the stage to tell everyone what instruments were up there!

That was pretty cool that he got to intro his dad and his dad's band!

Brian alternates between his bass and stick depending on the song, and can even be found doing vocals and kazoo!  Another person of many talents!
And since there wasn't enough action going on that day, we'd also planned a...
