Hello Summer!

The summer is flying by and we are enjoying every minute.  I thought I would show a few things that we have been up to.

Cars 2 opened June 24th, the boys could hardly wait for this day.  We went all out with the treats and the popcorn and the boys thought they were in heaven.  Logan is showing you his new Lightening Mcqueen (which he calls Fire Mcqueen because the new Lightening has flames painted on the sides).  The boys have been earning the new characters by doing their chores.  It has been a great enticement.

The boys loved the movie.   Campbell cheered when the movie started and they laughed the whole way through.  It was so fun to watch how excited they were.   

For my birthday the boys took me out to dinner and I had such a fun time.  These two are hilarious. 
P.S. Lately they insist on wearing boots everywhere, sometimes you just gotta roll with it.


 After dinner Mike got a babysitter.  First we went to the movies and saw Super 8 and then we went to a little concert.  Meaghan Smith just happened to be playing at a local "cafe" on my birthday.  She was awesome!  I love her music and she was even super nice.  I went up and chatted with her before she went on.  I am aware of the hideousness of this picture but it is the only one that worked out in the concert.  Mike wanted me to point out that we are not "high", the flash was a little bright.  It was such a fun night!  
Thanks Mike for the wonderful gifts and fun date.  It ended up being a great birthday!


To keep ourselves entertained we end up going to the Zoo quite often.  I love this picture of the boys watching the prairie dogs. 

One week for Family Home Evening we had a picnic at the zoo.  We had fun feeding the peacocks, chickens, and geese bread crumbs but Campbell's favorite part was the zoo cat.  This kid chased the cat around the entire zoo.   

One day we went to the zoo just to test out our new rainboots and umbrellas.  It has been a very rainy month. 

More puddles.

Logan just finished swim lessons.

The boys are constantly begging me to take them over to this dirt pile near our home.  We have spent hours here.  It never gets old for them.

When we aren't digging in the dirt we are riding bikes. 

Logan has been attending preschool twice a week for two and a half hours.  His teachers Mrs. Thiessen and Mrs. Dagenais have been wonderful.  This was his last day of school party and he is excited to start again in the fall. 

We love you summer!

oh gosh! My boys are missing out. We have been doing a whole lot of nothing due to the move. You look like you are having so much fun!

Yeah, you posted. I get to see my babies. It looks like you are having lots of fun. I am busy working, and trying to hard to get this house back together. We are behind and getting very tired of projects and yet...I keep thinking of more things I would like to change in the house. Dad has had enough though...I might have to lay low for awhile.
