Favourite Thing- May 2-4 Weekend

Happy Friday! What a long weeks it's been and once I get through today (a meeting with someone from our provincial office and the start of our second intern) I will be rewarded with one of my favourite things, May 2-4 weekend!

I'm pretty sure I write about this every year, but...I love this weekend! May 2-4 aka Victoria Day Weekend is just the long weekend in May. While originally created in honour of Queen Victoria this weekend is seen as the kick-off to summer- pools and cottages get opened, people go camping, barbeques get brought out, bond fires, etc.

I will, as usually be spending the weekend at my families second home. The rest of my family will be there too. It's the first weekend that we're all there and the start of at least one of us being there every weekend until Thanksgiving in October. 

The days will be spent on the beach, back to the house to sit on the patio until we start to BBQ, dinner and more patio sitting until we're ready for bed. Perhaps a bond fire and/or walk too as well. 

I'm really looking forward to this weekend, having time off, spending time with my family and, of course, getting ready for summer!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Sounds fun! Any excuse to lay on the beach works for me!
