As i'm sure it is pretty obvious by my lack of posts, but the blog has fallen to the bottom of the list of priorities right now.
I just can't seem to make time for this little new hobby.
I also can't quite figure out how other people manage to make it happen.
This will be a busy fall/winter since we decided to keep my oldest home and wait another year to send him to school. Or rather re-evaluate our options, motives, choices etc. next year. Who knows what God has in store for us. A lot can change in the next 12 months.
I am however a fast reader and have no intention on giving up on reading my list of blogs that I enjoy reading. Right now I sit beside my laptop and get to scroll through the ones that I read while I feed my youngest. It's the perfect set up.
Anyhow, until I have some revelation on how to blog and keep up with the rest of my life, the blog will have to remain at the bottom of the list.

Mouth chock full of sweets.
My mom was here to celebrate with us.
Happy Birthday big girl!
New crocs that LIGHT UP from Liz! Thanks Liz- P thinks now that she has to wear those on her bike because she got them all together.
Liz thought of my son too. Egg shaped sidewalk chalk.
Closing her eyes waiting for her gift from mommy and daddy.
An elmo bike that sings! We're hoping this will ignite the fire to ride now that she has her own
since she was always trying to ride her big brother's.
Opening a special card from Ellie-Ma. It sings the Itsy Bitsy Spider.
A helmet from Ellie-Ma!
She's fully equipped.
Some birthday money from Great-Grandma! Thanks Great-Grandma.
I often pick up things for the kids that I know they'll like for when they get birthday money.
P got an aqua doodle with her money.
And just like that we move on to another year. Wow.
Tim Hortons is predominantly a Canadian thing as you know. But as we crossed the border in Niagara Falls into the US of A we both suddenly craved coffee and the caffeine buzz we knew would follow (lack of sleep due to copious amounts of Rock Band can do that to you). Much to our delight we saw a Tim Hortons just off our exit for lunch which we happened to miss because of some directional confusion (not pointing any fingers). About 20 minutes later we happened upon a rest stop with a Tim Hortons in it. Yay!
I went in to order a large for my hubby and a medium for myself. I was really confused when I looked at the prices and saw that these coffees were more pricy than the Canadian version.
As I began ordering, I learned that OUR medium's were their SMALLS. So OUR large was actually their mediums. When I glanced up at the size charts I was astounded at their size of an Extra large coffee.

We ate soo much on holidays. It was so hard to say no to all the treats.
We promised we wouldn't give up the name of the little shoppe that sold them.
Some group shots before we left. Poor Uncle Rei had his hands full.
He was pretty popular.

This picture looks like the one in the brochure. It was very cool!
We love it but can only last for so long. My husband and son could have been in the water for hours.
The park also had this big indoor jungle gym. They thought of everything!
We took a stroll around Niagara Falls.
We couldn't resist.
