Busy, busy, busy August 24,2007




Our summer has consisted of many tasks as most due. First we gave the house a good coat of paint to freshen it up. Then we started to hack down some of the overgrown shrubbery. What followed next was an event of pulling overgrown junipers and whatever else was in the front gardens right out. Yesterday we managed to rent a chipper to rid ourselves of the giant piles that were developing on our property. At night as we fall into bed I tell Darren that it it alot of work being a farmer! Well of coarse here are a few picture so you can see yourselves! Hope your summer projects are going well too!

On a side note not apples this year but maybe next year though we are enjoying a small crop of peaches. Yummy!

BBQ @ Mom & Dad's with the Stemlers! August 13,2007




We were invited over for a BBQ at Mom & Dad's house out of town guests the Stemlers were visiting. On this particular visit they had their faternal twin grandaugters Ashely & Tia with them. A wonderful dinner was had but the company was better. Those girls are hilarous! Pictures didn't even capture the whitty banter that carried on throughout the evening. And as a special surprise Mom had a St.Honor bon bon cake for Darren's birthday.

PS The little ladies are drinking a raspberry drink!

Camping @ Alice Lake August 9 & 10,2007




Trying to enjoy a bit of summer we packed up the car, kid and dog and headed camping. Okay we cheated a little bit Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Donna & Kyle came too in the big RV. Though we did sleep in our own tent. They were kind enough to take some of our load in the RV which made for a less cramped drive up. I don't know who was happier Sam or Bronwynne, due to the fact they managed to sit in the same area for the car ride.(Usually Bronny rides in the back of car) We had a splendid time together. The rain did managed to pour one night but we all stayed nice a dry. We did a day hike of the four lakes and had a couple of campfires. And note to self always take a bathing suit or your sister in law to lend you half of hers! And alway take your camera!

Picking up D the other day August 1,2007




The other day we picked up Darren from the Vancouver airport and decided to go for a walk by the airport. I brought all the kids with me. Well when Darren got in the car you think the world had stopped Sam was saying Daddy repeatedly and Bronwynne was crying like where have you been. All was well once we got to the park!
