A few weekends ago we headed up to Waskesiu for Saturday and Sunday with my Dad’s family to celebrate my Grandma and Grandpa’s 50th anniversary. It is nice because my Dad’s family is fairly small and most of us live within a few hours of each other in Saskatchewan (with the exception of an aunt, uncle and cousin that live in Ontario) and so almost everyone was able to make it out to the lake for the weekend.
Waskesiu is Saskatchewan’s version of Banff -without the mountains. There are something like 100,000 lakes in Saskatchewan and lots of people in the province “go to the lake” for the weekend – I think Waskesiu is the most touristy of them all. (Random thought -with 100,000 lakes and only 1,000,000 people in the province that means there is 1 lake for every 10 people.)
It was an interesting weekend. That side of my family is not very organized but I think we all had a good time. We even managed to have 10 people sleeping in a 2 bedroom cabin.
I tried to balance out my time between taking photos and just enjoying the moment. And like usual, most of my photos are of Raeca.
They were too eager to cut into the cake to wait for me to take a photo. 🙂 Can you spot the knife in this photo and the next?
Ivan was much to busy eating his cake to look up for a photo -I don’t blame him. 🙂
Raeca and my cousin Jack found some random kids to play with. I love Jack’s expressions in the next two photos.
And I love this photo. Robin, I’m going to email this one to you!
Have a good long weekend all my Canadian friends!
