Calvin's Bachelor Party

Well it is been a long time since this blog has been updated, but Lily is still alive and well, and though we haven't been writing a whole lot, there have been some dandy adventures.

Simply put, having an RV is a blessing.

When one of your best friends is having a bachelor party and everyone needs transport to Ottawa for white water rafting, you have the answer.

When eight people need a place to sleep during the trip, you have the answer.

When you want to make some memories together, you have the answer.

The weekend was a great success.

Blessings to you, brother Calvin, as you embark on your marriage journey with your Katie!

Summer Adventures: Join us!

It has been a good summer, but my how quickly it flies by!

If you have been wondering what The Open Road boys are up to, wonder no more.

Tim: Working at a marketing firm in the Toronto area
Tyrone: In a summer semester at Laurier working on his business degree
Jeremy: Working as the Assistant Boys Camp Director at Camp Mini-Yo-We
Zach: In school at the University of Guelph

We are all going to be reunited in late August for PRiME, Camp Mini-Yo-We's teens camp. This is going to be an awesome week where over 200 teens will have an awesome time, learn more about God and make life long friends. The four of us guys met at camp a few years ago and started friendships that would carry us through university and some of the best adventures of our lives. It's cool to look back and see how friendships evolve as lives are shared together.

We are looking forward to catching up after a summer apart.

If you are between the ages of 14-18 and are free between August 25-31, join us for PRiME! It's guaranteed to be a great time (I don't usually promote this type of thing on this blog, but seriously, it's going to be the best week of your summer if you come).

Home is where you park it,
The Boys
