summer fun things: chores

First official day of summer and things are really going great around here. Henry vacuumed. Joe made lunch. This is going to be awesome.

summer fun things: the beach

Here we go. Summer fun time. First up: a beach. Not a particularly tropical or cottage-y beach but it had water and sand and all of that so it still counts.

happy canada day

We partied hard today with the Dhas family with slippety-sliding, food, water balloons, and fireworks. And exhausted kids.

(What follows is a plethora of pictures only a Grammie could love.)

Annie wanted to take a picture of me jumping so, here I am. A couple of things about this picture:
1. Let's be astounded by Annie's photography skills, as she managed to get me in frame, in focus, all while struggling to hold up a heavy camera.
2. There's (obviously) a baby in that belly. Number 6 will be arriving in November and we're pretty excited about that.

cousin sandwich

Clara's in there, somewhere in the middle between a couple of awesome cousins.


These fine folks will now be joining our daily schedule of activities instead of heading off to school every day. We think they will be a great addition to the team and we're excited to have them on board!

Let the summer begin.

garden girl

Annie's in charge of picking our garden strawberries. She's committed to the job, even though our strawberries are only the size of tiny blueberries. Her reward for the work is that she gets to eat them all.
