Summertime is packed full of kids programs…soccer, swimming lessons, learn to sail, kids clubs, church camps and VBS ( Vacation Bible school)…SO MUCH for kids to do these days!!
This week I have been helping out in the kitchen during “Journey Off The Map” VBS. We’re making and providing fun and interesting snacks each night. 72 kids the first night and 90 by the end of the week. It was lots and lots of fun!!!
Thursday night was a real favorite…
Tomorrow night is the closing with a BBQ. What a great WEEK it’s been!!
Life is PeAcHy!
Summertime is so wonderful! I LOVE it, I really do! Blue skies, sun shining, warm days getting my tan on, and enjoying all the fresh produce!
Salads and greens and veggies and fruit…like peaches!
Today is a rainy day, we need that too. It doesn’t keep the birds away…
Haha, talking about my little salad garden.
I planted some lettuce, kale and mixed salad in pots on my deck this year. Just to see if they’d grow. And the actually did pretty good.
So I have enjoyed side salads from MY garden this summer. Baby lettuce and kale. Tastes so delicious.
Another rainy Sunday in the forecast. What to do? I have REALLY been wanting to checkout the Seaport Market in Halifax. Besides we had a few errands to do in the city. Sounds like a perfect idea.
About the Seaport Market…A little bit of history from their website http://www.halifaxfarmersmarket.com/about/
The Halifax Farmers’ Market was created by Royal Proclamation in June of 1750, a year after the founding of Halifax. The Governor and Council designated a site for the Market – the present day Bank of Montreal building. For 50 years this flesh, meat or cattle market, as it was known, sold produce as well as livestock delivered from Acadian farms in the Annapolis Valley and from local farm production. In 1848 the City of Halifax was incorporated and the original City Charter conveyed the Country Market property to the city “for the public and common benefit and use of the City of Halifax according to the true interest and meaning of the original grant.” The Market has operated in several locations across the city since its inception in 1750, but moved to the Halifax Seaport in 2010 where it is now known as the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market – the longest continuously running Market in North America and proudly hosting over 250 vendors! The Halifax Seaport is a vibrant arts and cultural district found at the south end of the Halifax waterfront. Extending from Piers 19 to 23, you will find artisans, retailers, cruise terminals, event facilities, cafés, galleries, offices, a museum, a university and the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market. This district has been redeveloped to showcase local talent and is now a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
Right on the waterfront in Halifax, one of my favourite spots!
We had a wonderful few hours, had something to eat and even picked up a new cutting board from a local artist.
I just love going to the market!
It’s not very often that there is a summer event, a fun thing you can do with your family, that is entirely free. Well today I was happy to be a part of a group that wants to encourage families but also show them that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life if they let HIM.
Bridgewater Open Bible Church in Bridgewater, NS has been putting on a Community Fun Fair at Shipyards Landing for the last few years. It’s so much fun for the WHOLE family. Face painting, games, bouncy houses, music, entertainment, cotton candy, BBQ, and lots more and……….it’s ALL FREE!!!! Just come with your family and enjoy it. It’s a way to show LOVE in our community.
This year we are home and David & I helped a little. We manned the Bouncy House Obstacle Course haha. FUN!!
What a great day!
