This next picture I think is a super sweet pic of 2nd son and his girl....
After the hike we let the kiddos play on the play ground for a bit. It was a good way to wear the kids out so they would get a good nights sleep for school. ( Although my oldest doesn't start school until tomorrow.)
Sunday evening 2nd son, daughter and baby boy decided to do an iron chef cook off in the kitchen.....here's what our entree looked like :
This was an egg burrito topped with salad and a salad on the side. Although my sweet little daughter forgot which one she had doused with hot sauce at the request of one of the judges ( her daddy) and I ended up with the hot sauce one. It was hot, but not bad.
Our Daughter won , I guess you could say be default. Our older 2 sons got a phone call about meeting some other friends at the park. So, the food the 2nd son made ended up being eaten by him. Since we were kind of tired of eggs by then we had baby boy make the dessert......
Clearly the boy won the dessert portion. Love making things fair :-).
Off to great the kids when they get home from their first day of school.....pics to follow.....

Ugh.........I have been fighting a migraine for 2-3 days now! It is such a pain!!!!! I started feeling a bit better last night when I was making that list...maybe that is why I was so ambitious! Anyway.....it returned to it's "roaring" state. Any of you migraine sufferers know what I mean....you can get the meds to "calm it down" but then once they wear off it's BOOM! So, I took something STRONGER then I normally do......so that being said, if I happen to wonder off subject , bare with me, I'll get back to what I was trying to say....if not, just enjoy......
Ok, yes, back to my "productive/lazy" day. The hubby was meeting with some friends tonight up at Timmy's ( that's what we call Tim Hortons)........he NEEDED to go and do something more then have coffee but whatever, he is old enough to make his own mind up. I just hope he is enjoying himself. So before he left I asked for 10 mins so I could take a power nap on the couch.....I think it turned into more like 30. That was good though. I think my migraines are being fueled by staying up too late and trying to cram too much in the day. With the bits and pieces of cool weather we have been having , it has gotten me into a baking mood!!
My oldest son made some of the BEST blueberry muffins Thursday night....they were SUPER yum!!!
He has become quiet the cook! He has been working at a German restaurant and comes home with some of the yummiest ideas. And we get to taste his SUPER creations/concoctions.
Then the same evening I had made some yummy homemade bread. Basically out of necessity because son #2 likes to have toast all the time........Anyway.....it had been a while since I made homemade bread and we LOVED it all over again! Of course we HAD to break out the homemade strawberry jam..........
Oh, and I also made sugar cookies for the local college students. Our church partners with this ministry thing to where they give the cookies to students. Someone took a survey and it seems that the one thing college students miss a lot is homemade cookies.
Well, it sounds as if everyone is back home from where they had gone......oldest son working at the restaurant, hubby out with the guys and son #2 went to the movies with his "girlfriend"...they "celebrated" their 6 month anniversary....hehehe....how cute!!!!!! Ah.....to be young again.....
the younger 2 have been in bed for some time and I am now feeling the STRONGER meds taking place so that means it is now time for me to take a 10 min nap and then get the mini cinnis done and then to bed!!!!
Sweet ( cinnamon ) dreams :-)

How many children she would bring into this world and so forth. Honestly, I can say I don't remember thinking those thoughts when my children were born...too much going on I guess. :-)
I love history, especially when it is my families history.
Now let me see if I can think back that far!! :-)
We celebrated my 2nd sons b-day...he's 14 now.....
We went to the beach while he was here, although he found the water much to chilly for him. we also did some mini-golfing, bowling and tubing on the boat too. Hope he had a good time.
remember I said I had broke the digital camera? Well, I took this picture without having a clue what I was getting! :-) Pretty good huh?
again......pictures taken with a broken digital...you can still take pics but can't see what you are taking them of. Do you know HOW many pics we took HOPING to get a good one ?:-)
so here's to summer.......looking forward to the next one until then....fair winds and following seas...
