The qualifying finals for the Beijing Olympics in canoe water polo were held in Edmonton. We went and watched that for a while, which was pretty interesting. The Australian team was there, not that we watched them or spoke to them, but I saw their team jackets and the flag on the canoes. We watched a game Japan vs Italy and I was so excited when I heard the Italian coach yell out 'Andiamo!' because it's about the extent of my Italian knowledge. It means 'lets go!' Haha so yes I was pretty proud of that. But I think the Japanese team won. Not that I'm sure about that either.
One day it was pretty hot so we went to the 'beach in the city' with Shannon's cousin, Jamie, and her son, Tristen. It was just a bit of a concrete area with water fountains and everything. I took Brooklyn for a swim but after a while it got a bit cold.
Then on August 10th it was Brooklyn's first birthday! She got lots of noisy toys and a Barbie quad bike curtesy of Terry. She really is very spoilt haha! A few people came over to Shannon's to celebrate. Charlotte came down too, but it was really really hot that day which wasn't good. The day after that I was back in Cold Lake for the rest of the summer.
