Day 1

Day 1 of our odyssey to the province of Manitoba. I write this entry 4 hours into a 13 hour drive from Calgary AB to Swan River MB. An uneventful afternoon consisting of travelling down unusually staright sections of highway has landed us in Kindersley SK. Grasciously (and relatively cheaply) we will spend the night at one of Kindersley's finest lodging's...The Super 8. Outfitted with such modern amenities as running water and flushable toilets we expect our stay to be pleasant and comfortable albeit brief. Since there is really nothing else to report - I will end this post and invite you all to return in the near future to share with us the adventures we shall encounter over the next few days.

Amazing night!!

Last night Luke and I a headed out for a Hot date..... WE went to Phantom. It was my second time seeing it but Luke's first. What a production! It blows me away every time. How do these performers do it? Night after night.... Trying to give the best performance they can. And how does Christine not lose her voice? And the final question I'm left with is, "why can't I sing like that?" It sure is nice to get out of the house once and awhile, just the two of us. The kids stayed home with the aunties. My boobs were a little sore from 6 hours without feeding Caleb...but I survived. Today we should hear something about the house we are going to try and buy.... we are just praying that something will work out!

Stampede YEEHAW

Dylan in the beer gardens!!! Chug-a-lug!!!

HA HA HA.....

I'm sitting at my computer listening to 5 kids outside my window bantering back and forth. There are 4 boys and one girl....This is what has transpired...
"you can't hit girls," " Yes I can," " And I know people that can hit girls."... " Did you know you have hair under your armpits and it's black?" "I have hair under my armpits too wanna see....?" They all have a look...... , "Did you know your pit smells funny?",........" Mine don't I wear deodorant."
I know that one day very soon that will be my two boys outside chasing girls and smelling each others pits. And I promise they won't smell!!!!

Summer fun!!

I just returned from a week in beautiful BC. I was brave enough to travel back to BC with 2 kids all by myself (almost slit my wrists). But I have to admit it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I went to my 10 year grad reunion in Penticton. I had a great time reminiscing with old friends. It's amazing how no one had really changed appearance wise. I left Dylan in Kamloops for the weekend and brought Caleb with me. I then spent the rest of the week in Kamloops sitting around the pool and relaxing. Dylan really loves the water a little too much. He really had no fear. He has really started to exercise his imagination lately and come up with the funniest stories. Last night as I was tucking him in he was telling about the baby in his tummy, "It's a little girl mommy want to see her?" Trying hard not to laugh I went along with it until he started to talk about booby juice and breast feeding the baby. It's amazing sometimes how a child's mind works. Just when you think they can't get any more cute.....They do!
