{week 48} owen lake camping

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

our first camping trip of the season....with this rainy weather it made it not as tempting to go camping...but below are the reason we do it!~the kids had sooo much fun! they played and played.(board games, running races, digging in the dirt and more) Here is the crew all sitting for there breakfast! I forgot a memory card for my camera so these are taken on my iphone...not too shabby for a p&s....thanks to the Gash & Altwasser family for a great weekend~

fishing boat

Monday, June 27, 2011

Kent's grandparents just moved into a seniors village in the OK after 42 years in their home. With loads of treasures still being boxed for the auction his grandpa was pleased as punch that Kent would purchase his boat from him. Unfortunately, he is unable to go fishing anymore. Kent has fond memories of fishing with his grandpa....his vision of his boat was a little better than when we picked it up a couple of weeks ago. The boat was showing sign of wear and being "grandpa-ized"... well i surprised Kent with a new fresh paint job of the boat. With lots of sanding needed to get off the old paint. Now to remove all the rest of the doo-hickeys that are on the boat...although I'm thinking the umbrella holder may just come in handy...happy fishing to you all!~

watch for my weekly post of my kids tomorrow...we were away camping this weekend...so I will need some time to post a photo from the many I'm sure I took!~

{friday favourites} wall canvas

Friday, June 24, 2011

I love CANVAS PRINTS~ Here is my collection of our fav's from our travels...they live on the walls going down to our basement...I get to see them many times daily!~this collection makes my heart sing~I love all these moments. When we had our house reno'd Kent said we should only hang "my art"...with photos of those things that we LOVE! Little did he know I would hold him to this and create some amazing canvas prints to cover our walls....I use an amazing pro lab that makes my photos on canvas look amazing! ( i have more to show...i'll save for another week)
Remember to capture the moments in your families life and post them around your home to make your "heart sing" too! xo tammy

{bird whisperer} Grady

Thursday, June 23, 2011

here is our bird "tia"...lovebirds usually bond with someone (or another bird) I hoped this bird would bond with Makenna...well who would have guessed the little boy who drives his cars on her cage and is constantly putting his fingers in her cage to be nibbled on would be the one she loves the most! She loves  Grady! He has no fear of her and picks her up to kiss and snuggle her. She now spends 1/2 her time living in his room...during bedtime she comes out and enjoys a snuggle with G while I read stories.

She even had her cats pose for me:)  This was a surprise for father's day! Surprise~ I hope your enjoying your new home. Thanks Kristin for inviting me to spent time capturing your amazingly gorgeous children.

things have been busy here with all our school events and sports wrapping up for the season...but here is a capture of my favourite part of summer. "Outdoor Eating"...Grady is having a post dinner ride!~ I love warm sunny evenings...now bring on the heat please!!!

Happy Father's Day!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

We found this idea a while back and Makenna thought it would make a great father's day card...so here is our version...Grady insisted on having his feet up~ and topless of course!
Happy Father's day to all the great dad's in your life!:)

The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!

{Week 46} games with Grama

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

well I cheated a bit this week....I cruised my photos to pick a photo that I loved!~ I thought it was fitting to choose a photo with Grama...since we got to spend the weekend with her at a wedding while the kids stayed home.
They love to play games with Grama...I love the expression on G face! I will catch up this week with new fresh photos...if it ever stops raining!:(

{friday favourites} Lilacs

Friday, June 10, 2011

lilacs...I love love lilacs! Always have been my favourite flower...I love the scent! We should get our lilacs in the spring but we don't we get them in june. We missed out on lilacs last year since we were away traveling for June. So I'm really appreciating the loveliness of them this year!
This is the view of the front of our home...loads of lilacs!

{week 45} mini mak bike!~

Monday, June 6, 2011

ahhhh! summer weather is finally here...we love the warm sunny weather. We also love spending time outside on our very large and amazing deck. All the kids learned to ride their bikes on this deck. Here is Grady very very proud of himself peddling around the deck on his "big boy bike"....little does he know that the sticker on the seat says "Mini Mak." This was Makenna's nickname from her Grandpa and her 1st birthday gift from him. It has survived all of the kids...it's on it's last leg...missing pedal, missing basket and no more bell.  One more summer is all we need out of this special little bike then we can retire it.
 Hope your week is sunny and HOT! Yay summer!

{Friday favourites} rhubarb

Friday, June 3, 2011

Mmmmm...a little bit of spring eating! Our Rhubarb this year is amazing...thick juicy stalks!~I imagine the copious amount of rain has something to do with it. We love rhubarb crisp...just made it with some strawberries...and the topping is a mixture of large oats, various nuts, a dollop of butter,a bit of maple syrup all blended up and smothered over top and then baked. The girls and I had it for breakfast the next morning too.
I've been busy these day hence the lack of consistent blogging these days. From weddings, soccer, field trips, photo sessions and playing outside...I can't wait till summer holidays.
