This lame photo off the internet will have to do. He picked these out himself and he is very pleased. I am amazed how fun it is to buy "guy stuff" like this, I guess it is just so different than the girly world I have lived in for almost 30 years (especially the past 8 years)

side note: This is the book about Nosey the elephant that used to live at the Fresno Zoo when I was a little girl...Maddie loves this book. Sometimes I will come in cause she is crying and when I ask what is wrong she says she misses Nosey (nosey died, years ago and it talks about it in the book)

(which only means something to a handfull of people whom might be reading this blog as you would have to come to Kelowna to understand it:)
I quite like this photo because you can see all the people walking the bridge. That will never happen again! Very cool.
The new bridge has lower railings which allows motorists a plesant view of the lake as opposed to the old bridge which displayed an entire kilometer of cement walls!
What if the whole world wide web stopped one day? What would happen to all that information???? I've never had the inspiration to ponder such a thing till today, when my internet is down and I am feeling the pain and anguish of being unable to access the unlimited-ness (I think I made that word up:) that is the internet.
Ah but for a moment here, I am back online, typing away! I will just embrace this space in time, however short it may be, and enjoy this world where nobody needs a snack, a clean shirt, a lunch or their bum wiped...all too soon the buzzer will go on the dryer right about the time the internet logs me off again and I will have no excuse to procrastinate any longer!

I am pretty sure no words are needed, the costume says it all!
Mikayla in her ballet class. They were lemonade girls...still not quite sure what that was, I guess little girls who set up lemonade stands..? Doesn't matter, they were adorable!!
Mailee is 6, all the other girls in her class are 8 and 9. The teacher sort of made an exception to put her in the class to make the class a nice even number and so the sisters and cousin could be together, which was really nice! Anyways, I was so proud of the way Mailee kept up with the big girls and really shined. She is a talented little dancer!!

Mailee's ballet class doing their best minnie mouse dance. More photos to come tomorrow night-late!!!!!
Caleb : (running down the rall, hands on either side of his mouth, in a loud calling out tone) "baaabe" " you?"
Caleb seems to say a new word everyday. It is so cute and always takes us by surprise! Today his new word is "babe"!!
Only eight more days till I "arrive" at 30...Still wondering if I might feel any different? I'm pretty sure I won't feel older, that already happened a few weeks ago when I tried to teach the girls how to do a headstand and got so light headed that I almost passed out.
Geez, that used to be so easy!!??

It was really sunny so she is squinting but you can still apreciate the bike, it is the smallest size you can get. Maddie's is bigger but Mailee is happy on this one and does not want to upgrade. These shoes are perfectly cute but for no apparent or explainable reason she has refused to wear them for the past 4 months and then on this particular day she was scrambling around to find them cause she HAD to wear them with this outfit!! Also note the rock and roll scarf complimenting the ensemble. She wears this scarf quite often because "it flows in the wind" .
I am so thankful for Mailee and how comfortable she is with what she likes and how she likes it. She is such a sweet and fun girl! Although I have fought her a bit over her wardrobe choices, I am learning to appreciate and embrace her unique sense of style and beginning to realise how integral that is to the special person that she is!
