Rafting with the kids

Chris and I entertained a raft full of our own and a few others children while on a raft trip on the middle channel on the Ottawa River. We all had a blast and a day we will all remember for a long time. Warm water, fresh air, exercise, plus some great company are all you need to have fun. Awesome start to the summer!

Some in the raft images from our fun day.

Tim and his new Weber smoker

Tim got an early fathers day gift from his wife and promptly out it to use. BBQ ribs into the Weber Bullet had aromas wafting throughout his neighborhood. Tasted fantastic!
