Camping Trip Number 3




Well we went on another overnight camping trip this weekend..my cousin Derek was there also and the kids LOVE having him around, that's him playing baseball with our A...lots of fun but it would have been even better if we'd had some sleep. Anyway, next weekend we are going for two nights!!!! Wish us luck..

Camping Shrine


In honour of our newly found family camping hobby I have started to work on a camping section of the play wall downstairs......I have included the frogs we caught at camp, the wasps that stung us at camp, the fishing we did at camp and our tent and fire.....now I just need to add a canoe....but should it be red or green??????

Monday Fun



Lucky for us we got Kallie this afternoon and evening!!
The kids worked really hard on their craft. We used shells and starfish that we found on our trip to P.E.I., as well as polished stones and small boxes I picked up at the craft store.....While the paint was drying I took all three kids to the store(for hamburger buns) and to the park. I had two in the bike trailer I was pulling and one in the bike seat behind me on the bike....I wish I had a picture of that!!!! I will try to add pictures of the craft time later as it is not working now.

A update

We just arrived home from the hospital with A. He swallowed a penny yesterday afternoon and it became stuck in his esophagus. He had to have surgery last night to have it remove(general anesthetic and then they reached in with a grabber thingy and yanked it out). His throat is sore but otherwise he is fine. They released us this a.m. after we saw the ear nose and throat specialist again........Poor baby.
E spent the night at Granny's and now doesn't want to come home....silly boy!!! We'll go pick him up after we've had a nap and a wash......
