A weekend with Phil & Amanda

Fishing on Pine Lake
The perfect pose
Phil, Amanda, Wendy

The weekend with Philip and Amanda was a real highlight in our summer – and to have Susan join us too was great!  We took the canoe out Saturday morning and Philip did some fishing – but Pine Lake did not produce any fruit for Phil’s labour…well it was really my labour as I was the one paddling.  Amanda sat in the middle and we all shared in conversation as the fishing line went in and out.

We are in day two of our Leadership & Family Camp.  Floyd and Tracey arrived safely yesterday afternoon, and the organizing committee did an excellent job on the opening session.  All the new officers were welcomed with black cowboy hats…!

For those who are unfamiliar with the west, the “hat ceremony” is a way of making someone an honourary citizen.  The tradition really flows out of Calgary with their White Hat Ceremony.  Edmonton uses black cowboy hats and Red Deer uses Red cowboy hats…as DHQ is in Edmonton everyone got a black cowboy hat!  Even the kids.
