Summer's Almost Over!

So, wow summer is almost over...I can't believe it! It seems like I was just talking to my friend about grad and asking if she was all set for her big day!...Anyways, my summer has been filled with work...blah...and hanging out with my friends and finding new things I enjoy doing alot...One of them being scrapbooking...I never thought I would be any good at it first of all or have the creativity for it...turns out that I find it very rewarding. Anyways, I started my summer with a trip out to Saskatoon to see my brother and his wife! It was so much fun! I love spending time with them...We went right over Canada day weekend and so we got to see the fireworks out there...which by the way are like 600 times better than Winkler's which really isn't hard if you think about it...So, other than that, we got to go shopping!! and we went to the zoo...which is smaller than Winnipeg's which surprised me because you'd think a big city like Saskatoon would have a way bigger and better zoo than Winnipeg, but it doesn' it's still a very nice zoo, just not as big. So, after my exciting journey west, we came back home and got back into a regular routine which manly consisted of work...although I got to hang out with my friends and see a few movies and stuff like that...Of course I went and experienced Harvest Festival...the rides, my favorite being the sky master!!...and the donuts, lemonade, and those super greasy curly fries!...And of course I went and saw my friend as she was one of the queen contestents and although she didn't win the title, she made us very proud by bringing home the talent award, Miss Congeniality[which I can't], and 1st Princess!!!...Anyways that's all for now!
