It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Blazing Hot Soccer.

Our Location today is Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

By the time we got back to the trailer yesterday after a busy day around the park with the kids we were well worn out. We did however manage to post the blog only minutes before midnight. Kathy and I managed to get a fairly restful but short night’s sleep because we were up for 7:00 this morning. Yes it is Sunday and yes we are retired but we had some grandchildren sports events to attend and root for. The fact that we are unfamiliar with the area we chose to follow our son Gary to the park.

It was 8:30 when we were on the road heading to Gary’s home in Welland where he needed to stop and pick up the boys sports gear. After that brief stop at the house we headed to Plymouth Park. This is where the area Soccer Leagues would be competing for first place in their divisions. Before the games began Kathy and I chose to support the Soccer League by purchasing our lunch tickets from them. The food would be grilled by league volunteers between games.

The first game on the largest field our oldest grandson Trevor played from 10:00 until 11:45. The game needed extra breaks to keep everyone hydrated due to the high Humidex which felt like 99 F (37 C). The heat definitely affected the play as the opposing team who had extra players on the bench inched its way into the lead within the last minute of play.

Kathy and I sat in the truck to cool down while we ate our lunch. Kathy had potato salad, macaroni salad with her hamburger and pop while I had double macaroni salad, a slice of pepperoni pizza, a hot dog and pop. Our cost was only ten dollars to a worthy cause.

At 1:00 our youngest grandson Haigan’s team was playing on the middle sized field. That game lasted until nearly 2:00 with extra breaks added to keep everyone hydrated due to the high Humidex which by then felt like 104 F (40 C). Again the opposing team ruled and Haigan had a hard time accepting the loss of first place in his division.

Back at the trailer Kathy and I cooled down inside the Air Conditioned comfort of the trailer while the kids ran some errands. We both spent time getting caught up on the computers before Kathy took a Snap. A short night’s sleep and scorching hot day really drained her energy level. Once we’d eaten supper while Kathy did the dishes I prepped a few things for our morning departure tomorrow.   
Haigan was so upset he wouldn't look at the camera (Second from left).
We got to spend another evening at the campfire with the kids and grandchildren getting some last minute one on one time in. It was nearly 10:00 by the time we got back to the trailer. This has been a week’s worth of visiting jammed into a weekend. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

Why don't oysters give to charity?

Because they're shellfish.
