Day 148 ~ A High Of 32 Today!

Hot Hot Hot!
It's too hot to turn on the oven today.
Tonight it's BBQ! On the menu we have sausages, baked potatoes and grilled vegetables!

Day 147 ~ Not Impressed With The New Size!

I understand the need to encourage kids to eat a more healthy diet.
However, when your kids only get McDonald's once in a blue moon, it's a huge let down to only get 12 fries!

First off...Happy Birthday Devon!
The boys went and did a bit of dirt biking today and saw some wild life.

Day 145 ~ Birthday Prep!

Tomorrow is my hubby's Birthday.

Day 141 ~ All Planted! it had been a weekend of partying with great friends and not so much yard work getting done.
I can totally live with that.
Today however, I did manage to get the vegetable garden planted!
The rest of the gardens will just have to wait.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 140 ~ Another Pool Party and BBQ!

We have the greatest friends ever!
Another day we should have spent gardening but, had a much better offer.
Thank you Hunter Family for hosting an amazing afternoon of great company and laughs.
The fireworks and bon fire were a perfect end to a great day!
Yes...another iPhone photo. Too much drinking to carry around my camera! lol
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 139 ~ Gardening or Pool Party?

Wow, what a tuff choice!
No, not really.
Here is the blind leading the blind, a group of men trying to figure out how to attach an owl to the roof in an effort to scare off the dive bombing birds!
It ended in the owl just being tossed onto the roof. LMAO!
Drinking took preference over this job!
Thank you Fraser family for a great afternoon of fun and drinks!
Again, taken with my iPhone.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 138 ~ Talent Show

APS Talent show was today. Everyone did a fantastic job, I could NOT have gotten up in front of the whole school and parents to perform a song or dance!

Day 131 ~ Finally

2 days with no cable, phone or Internet ...I didn't think we were going to make it!
My husband was out weeding and ended up cutting the cable. (yes, we have forgiven him) let me tell you, Eastlink is cheaper than Bell...however they suck at repair calls.
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 132 ~ Fat Lips & Solar Flares

This is the new fertilizer spreader.
Want to know what happened to the old one? It's a funny story that ends with Devon getting a fat lip.
First off, he filled it and started walking the yard. Then a wire fell and was hanging down, that he kept stepping on. To solve that, he held the wire and walked hunched over (since the wire was short). He had to keep going since the fertilizer was still spraying out the bottom. Low and behold, he hits a bump in the yard and smacks his mouth off the handle. Ouch, a tooth went into his lip. Still, he keeps going as the fertilizer is still coming out the bottom. Now to top it all off...a wheel falls off!
Don't worry, he's laughing about it now.
Taken with my phone, I love the solar flare...adds a nice touch, and kinda pulls the story together don't ya think?
Thanks for taking a peek!

Day 123 ~ Checking Out The Crane

The boys had a blast checking out the neighbors 400 ton crane.
It's not very often Mr H brings the crane home from work. But when he does, the boys are drooling wishing they could check it out. They were super excited to not only check it out but, they sat in it and controlled the boom.
Well, Mr are officially the coolest guy on our street now!
