Our Little Fish

A month ago we headed out for a week of camping and swimming lessons.
The kids had a wonderful time and all did really well!
We camped in the same town as the lessons were in, so it was a 20 min walk to the pool.
 Every day we would load up the wagon in the morning for Brendan's lessons and then go again in the afternoon for Andy and Kayla's lessons.
We had beautiful weather and a lot of fun!!

The kids always enjoyed the wagon rides.

Brendan waiting for his lessons to start. This kid can't get enough of the water!

Andy and Kayla did really well this year and learnt a lot.

Little seeds.

Growing into big trees.

Waiting their turns.

Fishy in the middle.

Back floats.

And front floats.

Having fun on Henry the Hippo.

Brendan watching.

And snacking.

And being cute. :)

{Family} {Fun} {Football}

Life on the farm has become busy.
And thats a good thing!
It just means that the relaxing, camping trips and lazy nights have been traded in for,
 combing, swathing, hauling grain and late nights.
It also means that now football gets played on Sunday afternoons, which is really a pretty nice to for playing. :)

A few Sunday's ago I brought my camera along and took some pictures while I sat in my chair instead of playing with the others. :)

Warm up time!

Henry trying out his field goal skills.

And Josh's turn.

Then some smiles.

And it was time for the game!!




More throwing.

More catching.

Brendan kept busy on the sidelines.

After the game Josh's Mom and I finally got around to getting a picture of all these little boys. Between their family, our family and Henry and Megan, there are 7 boys age 6 and under.
Isn't this just the cutest?!

And we had to put Kayla in for one of them, she's smack dab in the middle of these little guys! :)

A Party Back in June

Way back in June we celebrated Brendan's birthday one more time.
I know thats a long time ago, but Megan was such a kind soul and took these great pictures of the evening, so I couldn't not blog about it! :) 
Thanks Megan, you're a peach!!!!
This time we had the whole family over; all the aunts, uncles and cousins from both sides of the family.
It was a beautiful day for a party.

The boys roasting away.

Silas and Uncle Josh.

Digging in.

After supper we had cake!

Kerri and Kayla.

And then we made a special announcement to our families, theres a baby on the way!

After that the girls played volley ball. And the guys played football.
