Pike Island (Pancake Island)
Just into our walk, water was covering the trail and there was a sign that said that the trail was closed. We just walked right through the water (waded, really) and ignored the sign. But we only got about 25 minutes in before we couldn’t go any farther. But, it turned out to be a nice hour and 20 minute walk including trying different paths and making mud pies (which the kids call pancakes).
Helena in a tree. This is the same tree two years ago.Â I wished that I had taken the photo farther back so you could see the difference in the water level. The tree is currently right on the bank – not so two years ago.
Ada at Liam’s Tournament in Blaine
Last night I was at Canterbury Downs and we watched the storms run through – more than once. Somehow they kept the races going after many, many delays.
Because it was dark when I got home, the damage wasn’t seen until morning. The Bubble Up sign that I liked so much across the street was gone.
As well as some very large trees.
Unfortunately, my car was in the shop. And since we didn’t have power for a few days and it was locked in a garage with electric doors, it was awhile before I got it back.

Looking at themselves on the blog.
Best lunch ever!

Liam and dad on The Wave
This is the last photo that I took (and the second overall) before I was told to put the camera away while on rides.
Still soaked on the Ferris Wheel. You can see the wet spots from the camera, unfortunately.
Still Ada’s favourite ride.
Ada’s first trip on a roller coaster.
Liam chatting with some girl. Well, she was chatting.
Helena held on to the camera while Liam and dad went on the Renegade roller coaster – Liam’s favourite ride today.
Ada and Helena on the merry-go-round while Liam finished his lunch.
Now Helena and Liam on The Wave. Ada refused.
Ada didn’t want to go on Thunder Canyon, but she finally relented, and ended up on it three times. Still, she was worried about the waterfalls.
The Scrambler. One of our favorites.
