"I Love Being a Kid!"

These were the words out of my nine year old Corey this morning downstairs playing with the rest of the kids with bubble wrap! They were all so excited and having so much fun. This simple sentence, "I love being a kid" made me smile and fill with joy. I totally remember the simplicity of being a kid and he obviously appreciates it as well.
I find that more often than not it is these simple sentences or the kids all playing nicely together that inspire me to write a blog post.
I have to be honest though and admit I don't have much to write about but I do have an awful lot of pics to post. That seems to be a common theme with my blog ;)
Michael has come and gone and it was a good visit but also presents it challenges as well. It must be hard for him to come here away from his home and mom and sister and jump into our crazy life. It was a good visit though and we are hoping to go to Edmonton in the new year to visit him there. Hopefully Jay can make a trip out there before that though for a couple of days.
Here are some pics of what we've been up to this summer so far.

Meanest Mom in the World

I must be the meanest Mom in the world as I plopped my baby girl on top of a pony at last weekends church picnic family day. Poor Jordyn was devestated and poor Corey was of course allergic ;)

Wow, I feel like I have so much to blog about lately and I'm days behind in my "online journal."

On a happy note. Michael's flight arrived yesterday morning on Canada Day and we spent a great day at the beach followed by dinner at Applebees!
Wish us luck with 5 kids in the house :)
