Back home in July...Alexandre and Laura-Lise decided to use our filled pond for something fun! How I WISH I weighed no more than they do!
Of course, no summer is perfect without a beautiful wedding to attend!

Later in July, we went blueberry picking with friends! It was such an enjoyable day which culminated in extra antique-shopping and such. :)
And...July 18th was Elodie's 15th birthday! With the theme of ''New Zealand''!
