We went to Pingles Farm on the weekend with the family and we all had a great time. We fed chickens, goats and 5 day old bunnies...we watched pumpkins get launched from a cannon...we rode around a track...we played in the sand...we watched a puppet show...we found a really fuzzy caterpillar...we took countless photos in cardboard cutouts...we all had a really great time!

Alison & Steve, Adrian & I planned a surprise party for Carole for her 70th birthday. It worked - she was surprised. The kids loved hiding and yelling "Surprise Nana".

Then the boys occupied themselves by playing shuffleboard.
And the girls danced.
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Nana
Happy Birthday to you

We love you - Happy 70th Birthday!

Bella's Lip

This is what happens when an almost 3 year old is running around a trampoline and loses balance and hurtles into the mesh...poor Bella!

Thanksgiving at the Cottage

Again, seriously behind on blog posts...trying to get caught up.

Here are some of my favourite shots from our Thanksgiving weekend at the cottage.

After demanding to be allowed to jump in the lake for several hours, Daddy suggested that Owen just test the water first...that was all it took..."too cold for me dad, but you can go in if you want to."

After a very busy day, Bella chills on the couch with doggie, wolfie, blanket (on her head) and NUKie. :)
We too long treks in the woods:
Tended to the fire:
With Papa:
Wearing the ultra-latest in smoke protection gear:

Oliver had fun:

We saw some cool wildlife:

And played a great game of "Hello Harry" and we all ended up with spots on our faces.
Kaitlin and I were the most "decorated". She ended up as a 5 spot:

And somehow I ended up as a 6 spot...and everyone decided it was more fun to call me clown...which I really did not understand until I saw these pics (thank you Justin for the rather large spots :)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Let's Go Blue Jays...Let's Go

At the end of the T-Ball season, each child was given a ticket to a Toronto Blue Jays game. A few weekends ago, Adrian took Owen and Jackson to a game.
They took the train in to the city and after the novelty of that wore off (5 minutes) they played Nintendo DS games.
The boys were all about the big foam #1 fingers. Go Jays Go!
Relaxing with feet up.
Pizza...popcorn...licorice...lots of yummy snacks
A fun day was had by all!
