:) barbecue season has begun! :)

Ok.. so here's what we've been up to this weekend :) Yesterday we met up with a pile of friends at the splash pad for the russel ave community day. That was a blast. There was a kids entertainer, face painting, a bounce tent, free barbecue, balloon animals.. and of course the park and splash pad. The guy who was doing the photography for the event came over and asked if he could take Tisha's pictures because she was "just adorable" and he "couldn't resist" and that he's going to put her picture on their website! I don't think I've ever seen so many of my friends in the same place before in my life :) It sure was great seeing everyone.
Afterwards a bunch of us came back here for a barbecue. Matt's friend Matt brought over some sausages, steaks, and a chicken (I think we killed half a farm for this) and the Matt's made up some kebab's and did the chicken up in the barbecue (beer can chicken style YUM) and OMG the food was good! Kelly brought over her friend Melissa and her baby Jake, I had a blast playing photographer with the little guy.. he's so adorable. The babies had a fun time playing outside on the deck together.
I took pics of most of the people there.. I think I missed Alun's little guy Thomas.. My boys.. and probably someone else too.

Here's a pic of everyone sitting around the deck.. it's kinda dark.. but hey..

June 19

So it was a good weekend. We went to Jellystone park to camp for saturday night. We made smores, hotdogs, hamburgers, and ate chips and drank way too much pop. We spent a lot of time in the pool.. the kids had fun watching yogi bear cartoons in the rec hall.. they had on around the world in 80 days (jackie chan version) for movie night saturday too. The pool was nice.. Tisha didn't even cry when we went in.

anyhoo.. I didn't take my digital camera with us.. so will have to wait for pics of our trip until after I develop the camera and scan the pics..

but some pics of Tisha swimming in her little pool to tide you over til then.

A million pictures for ya!

Well.. it's been a good week. I sewed up a couple Mai Tei's to sell. There's a Doula here in niagara that wants to show them to her clients and market them for me.. here's what I've come up with so far.. I LOVE the prints on these... and they are the MOST comfortable baby carrier I've ever used. Gonna sell these for 40$ each.

some new pics

Just putting up some pics from our playdate yesterday.. I did Tisha's hair up in a fauxhawk.. just to prove she HAS hair and isn't a complete cue ball :) My friend Jaime came over with her daughter Sienna and we had a nice time. The babies really seem to like each other.

candy floss

Well it's been a great day :) It started out with waking up bright and early at 6:30 and getting a few minutes to myself this morning before everyone else woke up... then I got to actually get a shower.. then I got dressed.. and just for a lark I tried on my pants from last time I lost weight (when Joey was 2) and OMG they did up! and they fit pretty damned good! YIPPEE! I haven't fit into them in 4 years!
Went and did some grocery shopping with Kelly at no frills.. (that store really has to do something about the baby carts.. they're just frickin gross) got a watermelon for the weekend.. and got Joey to school on time! Then went and met Jaime to go to a Doula presentation at the superstore. It was really cool. I really wanted to find out what kind of education they need to do that and it actually looks like an attainable career goal :) and to make things even better Tisha's mai tei got the one Doula's attention and she wants me to make one for her to buy to show her clients.. she wants me to make up business cards for her to give to them in case they want me to make them for them.. and she also wants to see the cloth diapers I make and showcase them for me as well! I've finally got the pattern the way I want it. here's a pic of one on Tisha.

It's a pocket fitted.. with aplix fastening in the same style as the double snaps.. this one is stuffed with bamboo (that stuff is more absorbent than any fabric has a right to be, it's just absurd)
So after this I went to the school and picked up the kids.. we headed over to the splash pad for a bit.. I broke up a fight between a couple kids.. told them I'd call the cops and have them put in jail for fighting.. (they're young.. they don't know the cops won't do anything.. lol.. plus it worked) Ran into Rachel! I haven't seen her in months! then after that we headed over to the fun fair at the school.. I didn't feel like cooking and they had hotdogs there :) The kids went on the huge inflatable slide and Drew paid two tickets to lock Spencer in the "jail".. after that we had two tickets left.. so we got some cotton candy.. to eat on the way home..
So we're walking home.. and I hand each of us a piece.. and Drew asks how he's gonna eat that without getting his hands all sticky.. next thing I know he's choking.. and his candy floss is gone.. (I've had time for one little bite) Apparently he had shoved the whole piece in his mouth.. Matt says "shoved it all in your mouth eh? That was kinda silly.. How's that workin out for ya?" to which Drew replies.. " cough cough.. at least my hands are still clean! cough cough" kid could hardly breathe.. but could still joke.. lol
