The return of Sunny!

I must admit, I was a bit concerned about pulling Sunny out of storage this summer. Was she going to start? Was she going to pass inspection? Was she going to make the trip 1.5 hour trip back home?  Well, it turns out I should never have doubted the old girl. She started right up, passed inspection with flying colors (the mechanic event commented on what great shape she is in - no rust!!) and has already provided us with tons of great times and memories this summer. Ahhh- it sure feels good to have her back!

This weekend we hit the road to the Kempt Shore Acoustic Music Festival -for our third year in a row. The first year I was incredibly pregnant and mostly remember having a really long night attempting to sleep on a mat in a hot tent, the second year I was on maternity leave and we had a blast, but this year was by far the best yet. Music festivals are what we do best as a family. The kids absolutely loved it - the music, dancing, new friends to meet and play with, glow sticks, bubbles, late nights, camping treats...what more could two little boys ask for?! Even though we all came home yesterday very tired and in need of a long bath, it was such fun  that we can't wait to get back out for another night in Sunny again as soon as we can.

Sunny all set up and ready to rock - folk festival style! We were camping close to the stage this year, so Caleb had a great vantage point from in his upper bunk bed where he could watch the people and listen to the music before falling asleep (after 11 pm all 3 nights).

This guy - making himself right at home in the 'Big Truck'!

Dance Solo!
Caleb wanted to see his first 'late night jam' because he always hears about how much fun his dad has staying up late and playing music with his friends. I took him over to a neighbouring trailer to see Alan, Ryan Dillman and JP Cormier rocking out. He was very impressed with the late night scene - at 10 pm!
