Weekend recap, Vol. 1...

Happy Monday! We had quite a busy, whirlwind weekend. Friday night was spent at Ottawa's biggest music festival, Bluesfest. It runs for 10 days (I think, don't quote me on that!) every year, and there are usually some pretty kick ass bands in the lineup. I have only been one other time, a few years ago. It's great to find a day when more than one band you like is playing, which makes it really worth your money. We paid $40 to see 3 bands we really like... ok... two bands WE really like, and 3 bands I really like! They're all Canadian bands: Hey Rosetta!, Our Lady Peace, and Blue Rodeo. We had an amazing time, but they wouldn't let me bring my DSLR onto the grounds. I was really bummed. I had been hoping to get some great photos to post here! Instead you'll have to settle for iPhone pics.
Then on Saturday we went golfing. We have a membership at a little 9 hole par 3 course about a 5 minute drive from our house. I've just been learning this year, but I'm really enjoying it so far. I like that it's something my husband and I enjoy doing together, and it's active! Plus, it is awesome to be spending so much time outside this summer. Saturday evening I made supper for my in-laws, that was fun too. We used a green pepper and tomatoes from our garden! They brought over a boardgame and as per usual, I kicked everyone's butt. I am unstoppable at super nerdy games!!! Apparently it's my hidden talent? I should have put that on my list of things I like about myself :P. In case anyone is wondering, super nerdy games include Settler's of Catan and Dominion. There may or may not be a couple of expansion packs included...
Finally, on Sunday we went to Calypso! It's a big waterpark near us. It was so much fun. The weather was great, hot, but not too sunny, so we didn't get burnt! We went on as many rides as we could when it first opened, and then we had lunch and spent the rest of the time floating down the lazy river, and hanging out in the wave pool. There was even a candy buffet! I love me some gummy candy and liquorice!!
We also play in a flag football league on Sundays, so we had that too. I didn't take any photos though, but maybe one of these days I will... Oh, and also, I have discovered instagram! I am always so behind the times when it comes to social media stuff, but I am getting caught up! If you want to follow me, I'm mcsarahanne! As a sample of my "work", here's a gem (haha) I took of Leroy.
What did you do this weekend?

Sounds like you had a packed weekend! I made dinner for my in-laws, too. The water park sounds like a lot of fun, as does the music festival. I like doing a ton of activities on the weekends as well :)
