Canada, my home sweet home

Just got back from a great trip up to dear sweet Canada. Everything and everyone are so beautiful up there. We had as Ryan would say a really "sick" time with the family. My mom's two stores are doing great and look so pretty.
One thing I noticed was how many people just enjoy the day, sit on their porch with their lovie and smile. You don't see that all that often in Connecticut.
Mom and Tom have 2 new kayaks that we really enjoyed. The best was out in the lake is another hidden lake that was lovely to paddle through.
Ryan had an expert fisherman who lives next door take him out and shared his secret fishing spot. Grandpa and Grandma tried to get it out of him but he wouldn't give it up. They caught two bass which we fried up and had for breakfast and they were oh so yummy!
