hey hey

You know how it is. It's summer. And the days are long. So you try to get out with the kids at some point. You feed them a few times a day. You hang load after load of laundry on the clothesline. You visit people. You go camping. You get groceries. You pay bills. You get new tires for your car. You relax.
But you don't really blog.

Summer's goin' good. It's busy, but not too busy. I can't BELIEVE I have a child going into GRADE SIX in the fall.

Lucy wants to be a pirate when she grows up. ain't she just a scoundrel?

We are very much enjoying our trailer. Camping with trois enfants is alotta work, but we are getting the hang of it.

Something about this picture reminds me of Holly Hobbie.

A belated Happy Birthday to Miss Lucy the Pirate. Arrr!

Okay, where are people getting those Pirates of the Caribbean head thingys? Susie had one on Biscuit last Friday. And Lucy is just adorable (and can I say how much she looks like you?? Especially in that last picture).

I'm glad to hear camping with three is doable. I'm not even wanting to try camping with *two* until this one is a little bigger, but by the time she is, the new baby will be here. I could be three more years before I'm willing to go with them :) (I did camping with one, and camping with one plus being pregnant, and decided that was my limit!)

I can't even imagine camping with two! (adults) :)

Looks like you're having a fantabulous summer. The pics are great!

Two BIG ASS candles totally count the same as three small, birthday cake candles.

They DO, I swear!

Glad you're all enjoying summer :-)

Have done the camping thing with lots of kiddies too so I know what you mean about work. At least a trailer helps. We tented it. What campgrounds have you gone to? May be able to share some tips on good ones in Ontario, but the ones I've been to are more in the East and Algonquin Park. I hear there's some great ones in the West.

Shoot, you think trailer camping with three is hard?? Pfffft! We camp with three all the time... in a tent!! There's a fine line between brave and insane, I know, I know. Great pics, and enjoy your summer!!
