Summer Weekends ~ Exploring Givers 150 park

Toes int he sand at Mooney's Bay Beach.
Summer weekends are full of family fun time. The weather this summer hasn't been great - I hear we've had over 100 days of rain so far this year - but we're making the most of our weekends.

It used to be that weekends were special because J was home but now that we're both working and the kids are in camp Monday-Friday, weekends are extra special. We're cramming in all sorts of things and really soaking up the nice weather.

This particular weekend included autocross, visiting with my parents, skateboarding, Dragon Boat Festival, splashpad with friends, and checking out the huge Givers 150 park at Mooney's Bay.

Autocross was freezing and of course it rained a bit. J did well.. it was his first time out with the new, wider tires.

We took the opportunity of being close by to stop for lunch at the Pizza Pizza I used to work at. It looks nothing like it did but we still enjoyed out pizza.

We also visited with my parents. My dad put the kids to work filling their backyard bird feeders and the kids happily climbed the fence and explored the forest.

Up and over!

We drove home in the pouring rain.

The next day was a random day: we started off at the skatepark in the morning and we all know how that ended, then we decided to check out the Dragon Boat Festival at Mooney's Bay and while we were there we went to the new Givers 150 Park, and finally we spent some time at the splash pad with our neighbours.

Have you been to the 150 park? It's a huge, Canada-themed park, tucked away at Mooney's Bay. There are so many different structures and we had a blast exploring.

Lots of wooden structures.
Mooney's Bay was packed with the Dragon Boat Festival going on and the Aboriginal Fest across the street. It was sunny and hot and the perfect summer day.

Splash pad fun before the storm rolled in.
