Favourite Things Friday Vol 80 – Going Home

I just got back from a quick trip back to Regina to visit my family. It has been a couple of years since I was there last so I decided it was about time.
My in house taste tester and I hopped on a plane and flew to Regina last Friday night.

Saturday we headed out to the lake where my Dad and my Sister and her husband were camping. I was so happy to see them‼

We weren’t at the campsite very long before we hopped in the boat to do a little fishing. Being in the boat with my Dad is really one of my very favourite things‼ I caught one small walleye and one nice perch.

Sadly we didn’t catch enough fish for dinner, so we had the next best thing! Hot dogs roasted over a campfire, nothing better!

Unfortunately Saskatchewan had record rain falls over the next 2 days. One night in a wet tent and we decided to head into town to stay dry.
It worked out OK because I got to visit with some extended family that I hadn’t seen in forever!

Plus I got to spend some time with this guy, my sister’s cat Cheddar.

He is quite a character‼ I love me some kitties!

The weather finally cooperated on our last day in town so we headed back to the lake.

There was so much rain that it washed out the road to the boat launch so no more fishing for us.  

My mom, my other sister and my niece all came out to the campground and we had a big campfire dinner and visited until it was time to leave.

I was sad to go but so grateful that I got to see everyone. I really miss living close to my family!

I hope you all have a chance to visit your family and friends this summer. It is good for the soul to spend time with people you love!

Happy Weekend!
