Samuel enjoyed his Canada Day weekend at the cottage.
K&K&S set up their tent. Boots decided the cottage was more comfortable. Sam had a nap in the cotage and rolled off the bed with a big thump - like his Papa, he survived!
When it is warm, the deck becomes the family gathering place.
The dock and the lake
The dock is also popular. Playing in the water was a hit.
Kirk had amazing luck fishing from the canoe, catching a pike and a bass - both nearby. Sam watched the pike cleaning procedure with great interest. He had fun trying out his paddle in the canoe.
Campfire on beach
K&K designed a campfire pit on the beach and Kirk cooked his pike for lunch. Sam checked a toad with Grandpa.
Although Sam loves to play with boats, he did not like his boat ride on Saturday night. He doesn't like to be in large noisy vehicles - he cried in the little train at Valleyview Animal Farm, on the OC bus with Karine's parents, and in the boat with Grandpa.
On Sunday K&K&S paddled to Chris's
As usual, Samuel enjoyed his corn on the cob at dinner.
On Monday morning he dug into raspberry pancakes made by his Dad. Grandpa and Papa checked the
map for a route from Messines to Lac Vert. Then Samuel was off to visit Mami,
Papi and Kayla for the rest of the day. Quebec
