Summer blockbusters

I am getting way behind in my summer movies. Indiana Jones, Wall-E, Incredible Hulk, and who knows what else, all unseen by me. However, I am not starved for summer entertainment. Remember when you were a kid and you loved putting on shows for your parents or whoever else would watch? This morning I was treated to a dramatic swordfight between "Blackbeard's Ghost" and "Mac MacKintosh" the intrepid Irish pirate. It was quite a spectacle. Later in the day, came an inventive retelling of the Indiana Jones saga. I especially enjoyed the use of the excercise ball as the giant rolling boulder. I love my little thespians!

Happy Birthday Canada!

Yesterday we celebrated Canada Day with a visit to Citadel Hill. Every year the historic fort opens its gates for a celebration featuring the firing of canons and FREE CAKE! What more could any little boy ask for?

It was a gorgeous day contrary to the weather forecast which had called for rain. We had a grand day in our fair city enjoying the company of our family.
