A Parade, a Boat Ride and a Campfire...Good Times!

Friday was a day packed full of fun things to do. We started the day with the Gold Cup and Saucer Parade. Sean was a little skeptical at first but got into it. He was quite impressed with the Police truck and the Fire trucks...and then well everything else was okay to watch. The ten minutes of Shriners on different types of miniture transportation held his interest for awhile but as the floats dragged on his interest waned. That is until he made friends with the little boy beside us. The two of them had a grand time dancing to the music and tossing one of Sean's toys back and forth. Sean also made friends with a young lady who he was convinced was also keen to play toss. She was happy to oblige this sweet boy and totally made his day!

The beginning of the parade...it was shortly after this shot that our camera died...harumph.

Daddy and Sean waiting and watching...

After the parade we had a nap and some lunch, then we geared up for our boat ride. It was Marko's Uncle Brian and Aunt Bernadette who took us out on their boat. We invited some friends along and enjoyed the view of Charlottetown harbour. Sean was keen at first but when he kept getting stopped from touching this or climbing that, he got a little antsy. That was until Uncle Brian let him steer the boat! Oh my word, did the boy ever enjoy this part. He steered, he played with the throttle and tried his hand at using the marine radio.


"Ahhh, now this is more like it!!"


"Hmmm, lets just see who I can get in here..."


"My name is Sean and I'll be your captain today, enjoy the ride."


After all that hard work, it was time for some juice!

Sean was a pretty tired boy by the time we got home and it didn't take much for him to fall asleep. So now it was Mommy and Daddy's chance to get away for awhile. Grammie offered to babysit while we went with Troy and Matt out to the campground for a campfire. Malcolm and Jennie joined us there. It was so nice!! We had marshmallows and hotdogs and some pop to wash it down with. It was the perfect ending to such a busy day.
