So far, Summer has been an island beach tour - any more of this and I'm going to start to think I own the beach. We were in Qualicum for 5 days with lots of family which was great. Every day Emma, Devan and I would go to ConeZone for ice cream, and every night we'd have a beach fire and roast marshmallows. I learnt loads of stuff from Devan (nudge nudge, wink wink).

Recently, my vocab has been increasing, as has my retention. My new common phrase is a snap 'No, I know that!' Certain people tend to repeat things to me as though I didn't hear them the first time. I've also gotten quicker to correct people, which in a way is my gift to society - I think I'll keep it up.

We sure got a good weekend of weather - about time too, the final weekend of July. On Saturday we went to Kits pool for the first time if you can believe it (we live just up the hill), and then carried on to the Whitecaps game with 27,542 other people. Today I played soccer with my Dad (chips, volleys and flicks), I got my haircut, we walked to 4th for dinner and then I almost got eaten by a dog. All in all an exciting weekend.

Parksville Paddle

Hope everyone is having a lovely, lazy summer. We went to Parksville (Vancouver Island) last week, which was loads of fun. Late night partying, musical beds, waterparks, it had all the ingredients.

My Nanna and Grandpa brought their 5th Wheel (poorly named with 4 wheels) which made for a more comfortable excursion than last year’s “Cold Camping Hornby”, and we were right on the water. I peacefully sat and watched older boys do tricks on BMXs at the skate park for long periods of time… I think I’m starting to learn the real concept of ‘Cool’.

My Dad tried paddle surfing a couple of times, and at one point we took to the water together (don’t be alarmed at the lack of life jackets, the water is about 2 feet deep for about a mile).

Parksville certainly got my vote, and I’m sure we’ll be back. Coming up… Qualicum!
