It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Extended Family.

Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

When we went to bed last night there were hardly any cars in the parking lot here at the Hotel, but by the time we were dressed and opening the Window Shades the lot was full.  We were up before the alarm again this morning so we could beat the weekend travelers getting at the Continental Breakfast Area. We just managed to sit at a table with our Coffees and Toast when there was suddenly a line past the registration desk. It only took a few minutes for us to quickly finish our task so others could do the same.

We spent the rest of the morning reading E-Mails, Blogs, the News and The Weather Network. The reason we follow the later is for when we are attending anything outdoors or traveling. Yesterday the forecast had shown Rain Showers all day for our area but when we double checked this morning the only thing it showed was Sunny Skies with warm temperatures.

It wasn’t until 12:30 when we left to head over to the East End Wendy’s where we ordered their Chicken Wraps off the Value Meal Menu. They are not overly filling so we were satisfied but not stuffed when we left. 

Our next stop was Walmart where we picked up the ¼ Slab Cake that we ordered the other day along with eighteen Cupcakes
I'd say our grandson Matthew is as tall as I am.
We then headed over to our daughter Karen’s house in Tecumseh. We arrived as scheduled to help get things set up for this special gathering and were surprised to find Peter and Denise from Kitchener were already there having arrived earlier then anticipated. They started introducing us to their children and their grandchildren who were getting ready to use Karen’s pool. With the forecasted Humidex only reaching 93 F (34 C) today they were more then happy to accept Karen’s offer. 

Minutes later Karen’s brothers Kevin and Ken along with their families began arriving. As soon as Greg got home from work he started his Charcoal Grill and started grilling the Hamburgers and Hotdogs to go with the rest of the meal. Before long everyone was mingling together like they were attending a Family Reunion. There were pictures taken with food eaten. The littlest ones made a point of going back to the pool after supper but were out in no time when told about the Cake and Cupcakes being served. 

By 7:30 most of the little ones had been washed and put in their PJs for the two-and-a-half-hour drive back to Kitchener. At that point everyone helped to get the place cleaned up before any Hugs and Handshakes were exchanged in a sense of unity. Thanks Karen and Greg for organizing this special get together and the lovely meal we all shared. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
