Roughriders SGI Play It Safe Day!

Dear poor neglected blog...I'm back!  Well, at least for an occasional blog post as this fall is looking extremely busy.  However, I am determined to at least blog about our amazing summer and our fantastic trip to Italy in particular.  Yep..we managed to survive for two weeks without the kids..and them without us.  There were moments it was difficult on both sides but I truly believe it was good for all of us...couples need time to reconnect and kids need time with their grandparents.

Back to the topic of the day as there will be many posts and photos about Italy to come.  We attended the SGI Play it Safe Day yesterday.  If you aren't from Saskatchewan, it's a day where you can watch the Riders do a walkthrough, get autographs, eat some free food and check out various community services.  The kids had a fun time and were totally exhausted by the time we left..they both napped for 3 hours afterward which is pretty much unheard of these days.

We were impressed with all the great freebies and a bit surprised by how quiet things were yesterday compared to the past couple of years.  I guess the five game losing streak may have affected attendance..or possibly the change to starting school after Labour Day has kept people out of the city. Either way, it was kind of nice that things were less crazy although I am sure the organization would have preferred that!

Without further ado, here are some photos from the day!
