Summer 2016 Week One

After a busy week of cleaning, we were finally ready for some fun with the cottagers. This week we introduced ‘Word of the Day’ and the favourite word this week was “whurtles” (wild blueberries). The host family has made plenty of baked goods; fresh muffins after Chapel, cupcake decorating and cookies. They also planned hat decorating as well as an awesome pancake lunch. Our feature picture this week include the farm family dad scraping dirt off the basement floor with a bbq brush before installing a new dryer.

Look at him go! The glow stick really completes the outfit!

This summer we are having pony rides every week as well as weekly visits from Ray’s Reptiles. We are so excited to meet all these animals! Speaking of animals, the farm has added two hilarious sheep to the family; Pepper & Brown Sugar. These sheep have already escaped twice, so keep an eye out for them. Some of our chickens are proud mamma’s to new baby chicks this spring. Hoggle the pig and Victor the duck have only become closer friends since winter, you can catch them doing everything together.

We couldn’t have asked for a better week to start the summer off. We can’t wait to see all the cottagers and all the wild memories that will be created at Waupoos this summer.

Every Saturday is open house. We offer swimming, wagon rides and a pot luck. So bring yourself, bathing suit, food and fun. We hope to see you there. 🙂

See you next week!

    Sounds like fun! Thankfully there was no rain if I remember correctly…this week’s forecast is a bit depressing…

    I second that. The weather will be a bit wacky- up to forty degrees on Tuesday. You might want to be glad about the rain- it will cool everything down a bit. The pool will definitely be handy this week!
