Lots of fun stuff for this post!
We've been having busy times.
|Just look at that cuteness!|
|Paige's shower gift, swaddling blankets.|
|The lame deer and her two fawns.|
|All smiles, as usual.|
(We probably do look pretty funny jumping all around and waving arms and legs all over the place!)
|One of the fawns got separated from its mother. Matthew spotted it when he went out to grill one evening. She made little crying sounds and then eventually made her way into the brush where the others were.|
|It had been a lot of fun going to the track a few mornings a week!|
|Thought this bird sitting on the line was cute.|
|Got to babysit Annabella!|
It was a lot of fun.
|We were looking at the computer where I had it distorting our faces in different ways. She got to giggling, and giggling! It was cute.|
|Matthew and Bodie playing a bit of soccer after sing.|
|This was the mercury mine. They collapsed some of it for safety purposes, but it is a BIG hole!|
|After walking around the mine, Matthew found the trail that goes up the hill. This is at the top.|
|We climbed this rock at the very top of the hill. What a view!|
Baby shower for Paige!
|Kids' table. Sorry about the lighting on a lot of these. |
My phone didn't do a very good job with the BRIGHT sunshine and then dark (and cool, thankfully) shadows.
|I pushed Charisa in the swing for a bit.|
|The three preggers!!!|
|The sisters and Gail.|
|I didn't snap quickly enough to get the whole quilt (I don't remember who made it either)|
but it is a work of art. Really cute.
|Kim and Lindsay helping pack up the gifts (and getting a closer look!)|
Jennifer's Bridal Shower!
|There are a lot of people in this picture and I don't know all of them! Plus is it blurry, sorry!|
The blonde haired girl second from left with the pinkish/coral dress with the box on her lap is Jennifer.
|We ate, played some games (a really fun one was 8 or 9 little bowls with a tablespoon of a spice in it. We had to sniff and look at it to decide what it was! I think Aunt Carol won that missing only 1. I think I had 5 correct.)|
|The girls had fun bringing Jennifer the gifts, though it made it take twice as long!|
They kept choosing the next one to give her, no not the one on the edge but that big one RIGHT in the middle!
|Once again, not a good pic, but the lady in the purple dress is Jennifer's mom, Sonja.|
|The girls eventually got distracted making hats out of plates and the ribbons!|
Since hot dogs were on the menu, we called up Austin and SB!
Kind of a weird tradition that started I'm not sure how, but we always have lots of fun.
Oh but wait! It was hamburgers this time!
|Hailey loves the water!|
Been fun to spend a few hot afternoons chilling in Cherisa's pool with her, Hailey, SB, and mom.
|Uncle Thomas and Aunt Cindy, Julie, Brooke and Jordan were in town for a few days.|
Many thanks to Jim and Carol for including us several times so we got to be with them some!
|Playing ladder golf.|
Rules in the box are a bit different than we played in NL!
But it was fun and more competitive.
|Biking to Cherisa's one morning I just had to stop and take this picture!|
|Happy Canada DAY!|
I had fun being patriotic!
(But I also wore denim skirt, white shirt and red headband 4 days later ;)
|Was it Tuesday or Wednesday, I don't remember, but I went with Cherisa to the airport to greet Uncle Jeff and Aunt Donna, Andrew (and Andrew's girlfriend, Laura) and Nathan from Pennsylvania. |
Most of the family stopped at In 'n' Out for lunch.
|Hailey getting fed a banana and entertaining Andrew and Laura.|
It was fun to visit with them a bit.
|Renae had all these ladies over during a men's meeting.|
|The next morning Brooke joined us at the track and spent a few hours with me.|
