Like many other Canadians, we spent the August long weekend on vacation, enjoying some time off from our regular life. We headed to the shores of Lake Diefenbaker, in Saskatchewan, with Kristal's extended family, to enjoy three days of beautiful weather, sandy beaches and warm water.

Kristal and I decided to stage a 'Family Olympics' challenge, pitting team Grandma versus team Grandpa in several events over the course of the weekend.  Events included a couple of playground obstacle courses, a round of mini put, and a thouroughly entertaining canoe race. In the end it came out a draw, (I mean really, who organizes an even number of events?) but no one seemed overly concerned about breaking the tie. I guess it will just have to be continued next year.

It was a fantastic weekend, full of good food, good fun and good people. We didn't even mind that there was no climbing involved!
