I’m sure most of you have heard by now that we are going down to Florida in February. Lisa’s parents have rented a house for a while, and we are flying down to spend 8 days with them. We happen to be going when it is Mike’s birthday, and we will be going to Disney World that day. Well, the park heard about it, and this video was released. Wow, when the Rowland’s celebrate, they sure do it big!

Buckhorn in Summer 2008
One of the highlights of the summer is going up to Buckhorn. Some of the family are lucky enough to be there for the full two weeks. We were able to be there for parts of 6 or 7 days (essentially 4 days the first weekend, 2 days the last weekend). Every year I comment how beautiful it is and how I wish I could stay longer. The weather wasn’t as nice as years past, but there was still lots to do.
The first trip up, the boys “swam”, we walked, and we relaxed. We went to the Whetung Ojibwa Art and Crafts Gallery. We also had an adventure at the Lakefield Fair. The second trip up, we went into Peterborough, went mini-putting, and excavated pieces of the Canadian shield for Lisa’s parents (thanks for your help Dad and Jason). Whether it was the first or second trip, Christine insisted on staying up late and waking up early. I guess cottage life was just too exciting for her.
I took loads of pictures. As is usually the case, you can see some of the thumbnails below, and see the rest of the thumbnails and larger versions in the Buckhorn in Summer 2008 gallery.
It seems like it is tradition now that we have a party each year. Two years ago we had a shower for Alisa. Last year we had a shower for Lisa. This year we decided to have a party on Andrew’s birthday. Lisa parents (Andrew’s Grandma and Grandpa) came up for the afternoon and we had a party in the “party room”. You can see pictures specifically from the party in the 20080727 Andrew’s Family Birthday Party in Buckhorn gallery.

Christine Lisa Wing’s birth announcement
It is a tradition… we screw up every birth announcement! We were sure we had this one right. I read it out loud to Lisa several times, and then I had it repeated back to me by the person at the newspaper. Everything seemed fine. Of course it isn’t. Did you see the mistake? Yes, Christine has 3 uncles, not 2. We have no idea who we missed. I guess it’s hard keeping everyone straight when you try to mention 27 people in one way or another (we only mentioned 26). Sorry Jeff, Jason, and Rob!
