The Week In Seven Photos

There were many beautiful moments to be found outdoors and

we were lucky this week to have had two out of the four gorgeous days that we’ve actually had this rainy spring.

Some were basking in the sun while St. Louis Blues fans were basking in the glow of the Stanley Cup.

There’s always plenty of time for random thoughts while paddling and floating around the lake watching the birds

and one such thought this week was my possible overuse of the word favorite (egrets are a favorite). ย After much serious thought I decided a lifetime of cherishing favorite things could have begun from a subliminal message from childhood listening to Julie Andrews sing My Favorite Thingsย or my older brother always telling us he was mom’s favorite (probably not a surprise that these adorable baby swans are also a favorite).

It was impossible to argue with him, since it was obvious to all of us that he was mom’s favorite.

No doubt you’ll continue to see many references to my favorite things. ย These photos were some of my favorite moments from the week along with a few other favorite things like my Starbucks Frappuccino, watching sports teams or players win their first championship and cruising in the Jeep and at the parks with Harper.

    Awesome favourite things and lovely photos. ๐Ÿ˜€
    And don’t worry – my eldest brother was also my Mum’s favourite, though she always denied it, and my eldest sister was my Dad’s favourite!

    My favorite is the turtle, how beautiful colors it has. Of course Harper is my all the time favorite, it is clear without mentioning.

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful to hear your favorites and I let Harper know sheโ€™s a favorite!๐Ÿ˜ Usually the turtles are quick to jump back into the water, but he was not giving up his great spot along the park path even as all the children wanted a close look.๐Ÿ™‚

    My favoured – not favourite – team didnโ€™t win the Stanley Cup, but well done to the Blues. When it goes to game 7 and you win, itโ€™s deserved! Well done to the Raptors as well, thatโ€™s sent Canada slightly crazy…
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and doesnโ€™t Harper look just right cruising in the Jeep? One of her favourite things!

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ It was great to end the hockey and basketball seasons with two great series and I loved watching the teams and their cities celebrating their first championships. Any chance you have become a basketball fan now that the Raptors are the champions? Harper loves cruising, but Iโ€™m anxious to try it without the Jeep top. Unfortunately as a puppy she gets a little freaked out whenever the wind blows and Iโ€™m not sure when sheโ€™ll be ready for the full Jeep experience. Enjoy your weekend!๐Ÿ™‚

        The rainy June seems to be a Northern hemisphere thing at the moment. We’ve not really started summer yet.
