Who else loved waking up to a thunderstorm this weekend? Then, after a nice morning rain, the sun came out and we got to enjoy an absolutely beautiful weekend with cooler temperatures. It was a nice break from the heat.

This week is sizing up to be amazing. It’s going to be sunny, warm and a darn-near-perfect day! Tomorrow we are expecting a bit more wind and slightly cooler temperatures. After that, the heat turns up and we are looking at an absolutely amazing weekend.

You might need to find fun ways to cool down but it’s summer after all. Get out there and find some fun things to do. Head out to the lake, go to a spray park, hit up a patio with a friend, whatever your heart desires. Let’s make the best of these amazing summer days! I hate to say it but it won’t be long until we’re talking about the chill in the air as the fall starts to take over. Although, that is my favourite time of year, sweater weather.
