We arrived back to CamBay just in time for the Omingmak Frolics 2013, omingmak is the Inuit name for muskox. We haven't been frolicking too much this year. Thursday we went to the fashion show, it was held at the community hall this year and the fashion was amazing. Below are some of the examples of the clothing.

On Friday I met up with Marg and her mom to watch the parade and then headed over to the community hall to watch the Annual Cadet Review. I haven't been to the Cadet Review before and found it very interesting to see them in action.

Diamonds in the Ruff had the canteen on Friday so when Craig came home from work we headed down to the ice and had our muskox burger and pop in our support. We also watch some of the ski-doo races before we headed home. Here's a few pics from the races.

Today we relaxed most of the day, I left Craig and Mocha at the house while I took the dogs out. It's the first time since we been back. Molly seemed kind of depressed since her surgery so I thought since I took her stitches out today she would like to go out for a run. She ate all of her dinner tonight without any problems and went straight to bed after that. I guess I should back track a bit concerning Molly. I received a call from her vet this past week and the lump that was taken off confirmed that she had cancer. The margins were not great so we will keep an eye on her for any new lumps.
We spent at least an hour out this afternoon and noticed that there are many geese, gulls and sand cranes that are returning to the area. It's good to see the return of the birds as it can only mean that spring is around the corner. We are just about in 24 hour daylight, on May 21st we will experience it once again for the next two months. The couple of pics below are of my little herb garden, I can't wait to have fresh herbs! There are 6 herbs: oregano, basil, thyme, mint, parsley & rosemary.
