U-Pick Blueberries Mmmm....

Follow us mom, it's this way! After reading that she could go pick Blueberries with 13 children I figured it couldn't be that bad with 3 kids! I was right, we had fun. The kids picked a few and ate a few and then ate a few more! We wound up with about 12lbs of Blueberries not including the ones in the kids tummies. Guess that means we will be making Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins for the next few months!

Aurora my Blueberry eater, oops...I mean picker!

Angelica: Look mommy, see, see
Me: Wow, good girl, keep picking

Just a minute later they were all gone and in her belly!

Twins??


No, not quite. They may share the same age once a year but no they aren't twins. This is probably the most asked question. These 2 are actually 11 months apart. They may as well be twins because they are always together! I love seeing them share such a close bond.

Needing some timeout!

It's been a while since I have posted anything related to scrapbooking. I am afraid I haven't had much time for timeout since Summer Vacation started. I have been keeping busy playing with the kids at the beach which is where I hope to head tomorrow! Enjoy!

Here is a layout of Logan in his first year of soccer in fall of 2007. We are looking forward to Aurora starting her first year of soccer this September.

This layout of Aurora blows me away. I decided to try her hair in low pigtails for the firts time. I couldn't believe how much older she looked. It doesn't even look like her!

What can you do at the wetlands?

Today we took a trip to the Cheam Wetlands with our friends, John and Karla and their 3 kids. What a great day of exploration and learning (without them even knowing it) for the kids!

While crossing the bridge we searched out some frogs. This is just 1 of the many we managed to find.

The kids were so happy to have founds snakes, the mommies not so happy, but it was worth a photo for the prized catch!



After a picnic to re-fuel the kids there was more time for playing. Logan and Aurora were having a great time trying the wheelbarrow walk!

Where did this look come from?


On a recent trip to a local park my daughter needed a "time out". Can you tell she wasn't too happy about it? As she sat there pouting I thought hey, perfect time for a picture. As I was snapping the picture her scowl intensified which made me laugh. She did not find it funny but how could I resist? Maybe next time she will think twice about pushing her friend down!

Who's in our bed?




This is what happens when you have 4 children in your house. Your bed is not your own. On Saturday morning they came in 1 by 1 to wake us up. As you can see these smiling siblings took over our bed! I love this time the most, when they just wake up and are still warm and cuddly. I will take it while I can still get it that's for sure!

Down by the Sea...

It's been a while since I have posted on here. With summer I have almost forgotten I have a blog. I have been busy with my kids soaking up the sun! Our most recent venture was to White Rock for a day in the beach. There was plenty of sun, sand and water! I hope to make it back a few more times before summer ends.
