Saturday Jaxon and I were invited to attend a Family Fun day for my mom's work. It was being held at East Wawanosh Conservation Area and was to be an outdoor day filled with lots of fun games and then a pot luck for dinner. We were going to head to the arena on our way home to catch Curt's hockey game then.
Well, as well all know in mid-western Ontario, we can not plan anything in the winter months that is set in stone. We woke up Saturday morning and started to head over to Palmerston to my hair appointment and it was quite stormy. When Jaxon and I come home around 11:30 it was terrible. If I would have had to drive over to my appointment in that weather, I would not have been going. So, needless to say the Family Fun Day was cancelled. We instead were invited over to one of her co-workers house for the potluck, since everyone had their stuff made for the potluck.
By supper time the weather had died down, so we were still able to make it out to Curt's hockey game. Thank goodness, because I would have one upset little boy on my hands if he did not get to go see his dad play hockey, and to see the Zamboni. Hockey and the Zamboni is what Jaxon seems to live for these days, and the work probably would have ended if he was not able to get out to see them.
Sunday morning we headed back to the arena to witness a bunch of hung over guys trying to play hockey. Needless to say, in their condition, they did not win the game and we did not have to stick around the arena all do for them to have to play in the finals.
We headed over to my mom and dads place after the hockey game to have a nice relaxing Sunday with them in honor of Family Day.Monday we were invited over to Curt's parents place to celebrate Family Day with them. Curt is heavy into tax season know, so he spend the day in the office and come home a little early so we could head over there when Jaxon woke up from his nap.
They have a hill over at their house that we have visted a few time this year. When Curt was younger his friends and him would always race down it in the winter with their GT Snowracer's, and he has really enjoyed reliving his youth through his son. Reed was there, and Lois had bought a new sleigh for the boys. It was great...they loved it. Jaxon has only gone down it in his wooden sleigh in the past, and this new one was super fast. He LOVED it, to say the least. He belly laughed the whole way down. Reed on the other head did not know what to think about it. He did go down a couple of times, but after they almost ran into a tree, he was done. Jax...no way. He wanted to do it again.
After our outdoor fun we made our way inside to have dinner and a visit. With it being winter, and full on snowmobile season we do not get to see Curt's parents as much as usual, so it was nice that we got the spend some time with them on Family Day.
Hope you all had to great Family Day with your loved ones.
