I mentioned last week that while we were in Saskatchewan we did a little road trip. My parents rented a huge van and we drove to southwestern Saskatchewan to Maple Creek. We visited Cypress Hills, the Great Sand Hills, Fort Walsh, and Scotty, the T Rex at Eastend. So today I'm taking you on the first day. Just be warned, I LOVE the never ending skies and fields of Saskatchewan so I took A LOT of pictures!

1) Favourite summer outfit?
A few summers ago, I bought myself a pair of denim shorts because Rachel was wearing them all the time and I wanted them. I love my denim shorts and am seriously considering getting another pair because I wear them so much. I love shorts, a fun graphic t-shirt, and sunglasses.
4) What do you use for a summer bag?
9) Do you wear white after Labour Day?
The only white I wear is my white t-shirt, and yes, I wear it after Labour Day.
10) Favourite summer fashion trend right now?
This assumes I know what the fashion trends are!!! I could probably ask Rachel what's in right now but I seriously don't know.
So there's my hot take (because it's summer, get it?!?!?) on fashion right now. If you're looking for me, I'm hanging out in my shorts and t-shirts and wishing I had somewhere to wear a dress! Next Monthly Musings we're talking about Back to School Shopping, Prepping, and Meal Planning and I am all over that one!

Phew! July has been a whirlwind!!! We started out the month with lots of family visiting, then we headed off to Saskatchewan for over two weeks to hang out with my parents, and this week I'm trying to catch up on life (laundry, yard work, errands) while Rachel is volunteering at dance camp. Summer is crazy, but in the best of ways :)
What we've been up to... Some of my cousins came to Ontario for a visit so most of the family in Ontario got to spend a lot of time together. We went to a Blue Jays game, had a gathering at my aunt's, and hosted some of the second cousins for an impromptu sleepover.
Then we flew to Saskatchewan for a few weeks to see my parents. While there, we saw more family and went on a road trip to southern Saskatchewan. I'll be blogging more about that next week.
We got home this past Saturday and went to see my cousins' son play in a big volleyball tournament out of town on Sunday, so we hit the ground running.
This week I'm trying to get Sam ready for a week away at camp, get Rachel and I ready for an adventure (more on that below), and trying to catch up on laundry, yard work, and seeing some friends.
What else is new... I think that's everything. I'm just trying to soak up all these lovely summer days where I don't have to work. I have three and a half weeks of summer break left and I am determined to make the most of it!
Happy Wednesday! If you've done a trip with just you and one of your children, please let me know if you have any advice! I'm both excited and nervous to travel with just one kid and have no experience doing anything like this so your thoughts are more than welcome...
