Overview of our Summer

Here's just a quick look at the different things we did this past summer. As you might know, we spent the summer in Jordan, Ontario, where Curt had a 3 month internship at the URC here. It was a wonderful summer!
Just down the hill at the end of our street is Jordan Harbor, which really isn't a harbor, but a little bay off Lake Ontario. It's a shallow, marshy place that seems to be alright for fishing and canoing. The train track that runs close to our home crosses over the bay on a great trestle bridge, which you can see in the background.

A 10 lb catfish Curt caught.
For one Monday afternoon, we took an outing to a park in Welland. The Welland River is on one side, the Old Welland Canal on the other, and a strip of park land in between. A great place for a picnic! It was a beautiful afternoon.

Dad, Matt, and Curt also went for a fishing trip on the Old Welland Canal and caught a few bass and panfish.

A trip to Niagara Falls, while Mom babysat Phillip! Thanks Mom, for all the babysitting!

In August, we spent a few days with the Vogel clan during their traditional vacation at the "cottage" near Bancroft. It was a great time!

Phillip became even more accomplished in his jumping skills over the summer. Here is a picture of a combination jump/kick that required great agility and concentration and got the ball moving all of 3 feet.

Jen had the honor of being a bridesmaid in her cousin's Melanie & Chad's wedding in Cornwall.
