We had a lovely weekend in the north. Actually it was a perfect northern weekend.
The annual pow-wow was taking place, and aboriginal groups from all over North America were in town.
Unfortunately it rained on Saturday and the festivities had to be moved indoors, but it was fun just the same ;)
Zac loved watching all the dancing and listening to the loud drums and (rather intense) singing.
Then on Sunday night, we had friends and neighbours over for a campfire and s'mores in our backyard.
It was a beautiful starry night, with a light breeze and surprisingly no bugs.
And just when I thought the night had reached campfire perfection, the northern lights made an appearance and gave us all a beautiful light show.
It's a lot harder to see the aurora borealis up here in summer, since the sky doesn't get dark until very late. But even though the auroras looked paler against the still bright sky, they were still incredibly beautiful!
I am back in Montreal now for the next 3 weeks, and planning to soak up as much of the remains of summer as I possibly can!
Hope you're having a great week.
