Tonka is enjoying the lovely summer weather in Calgary. He goes to Tom Campbell Hill with Linus, where they can jump onto big rocks. We drove to Edmonton to visit his Uncle Xavier, and to spend an afternoon at The TeaGirl teahouse – very cool! Tonka has great patience for having his photo taken, whether lying quietly beside a basket of roses from the neighbour, or looking regal for a “formal” portrait. Best news of all: he has learned to swim this month! Now when we go to the Elbow River, he can plunge in after his Uncle Linus and get cooled off fast!
