Visiting
Simply Selles by David Selles

This past weekend for me was one of my best in a while.

I made a trip back to Lethbridge to spend some time with family celebrating family birthdays and Father’s Day.

I headed for Lethbridge on Friday and made a short pit stop at my sister’s place for my first (and much needed) haircut in three months.

The one benefit to having to wait this long for a haircut is that since everything was longer, I’m now changing my hairstyle for the first time in roughly six years!

Saturday began with me meeting some friends (socially distanced of course) to go over our plans to start a podcast together.

We’ve discussed it for a while but now that we can meet it’s taking some more traction and we’ll hopefully have our first episodes available sometime in early September.

Saturday afternoon was spent with the family.

My family usually combines celebrations in June due to how many birthdays there are.

I have one brother whose birthday is on June 1, a sister-in-law whose birthday is June 12, a niece whose birthday is June 14, my dad’s birthday is June 16, my other brother’s birthday is June 20, and then I have another niece whose birthday is June 24 and a nephew whose birthday is June 28.

With all those birthdays, its usually easiest and best if we just merge it all together for the most part and celebrate them all at once.

My family’s June gathering is probably our third biggest of the year behind yearly summer camping trips and Christmas.

On Saturday, there were 21 of us socially distanced around our backyard celebrating.

Kids were running around while adults sat and caught up with one another.

It can get pretty hectic with so many people talking and young ones running around but the time we spend together is always worth it.

It was nice seeing family I hadn’t seen in so long and I’m looking forward to more visits with them as restrictions continue to ease (hopefully!)
