{week 52} rainy day projects...

Monday, July 25, 2011

we've been busy trying to find lots of new rainy day projects...their lovely sitter showed the girls how to made things with pony beads...well we searched all through town for beads...finally scored at Walmart with a rainbow of beads. The girls spent a whole afternoon making things from snakes, trees, fish to lizards. they are thinking of setting up a booth in our driveway to sell their wares... Grady was right in the middle for part of it. When he was helping you heard many beads hit the floor. we're still wishing for sunshine....come on summer we want some beach days!
This is the last week of my 52 week challenge of taking a shot of the 3 of them doing whatever they do!~I think I will do a little something different in August and then come back to this challenge next fall. It's a great way to capture how they grow and their day to day life. I can't wait to design an album~ happy craftin all!

{week 51} a day with daddy

Monday, July 18, 2011

                                                                                          {week 51}

A sunny morning spent with Daddy at one of his extra projects...very fun to explore a logging site...lots of mighty machines for G to look at and mud! At least it had a bit of crust on it so we were all good. The thrill was daddy's radios. Lots of radio action talk on these ....we also went for a little hike along the bottom part of this block to do some GPS's...I thought the skits were going to pick us up and take us away. Taught the kids how to use an aspen branch with leaves to whisk them away....

{friday favourites} party time Grady is 3

Friday, July 15, 2011

I love parties...this is the first year that I've done anything besides just cake and presents with his sisters. Grady now knows all about parties. He has been talking up his "lightening" party for sometime. So I thought I'd better do a little something. poor timing with his sisters having art class this week. But it did help keep it simple. He chose his two best friends Charlie & Dawson (younger brothers of his sisters best friends~) for a morning playdate. We set up the night before with the help of the girls. We built a big train track and designed a race track that would impress even the fastest lightening cars...the girls helped me decorate some cupcakes for his race car cupcake track. Once the girls came home from art class they joined in for lunch, cupcakes and presents. Phhhh...2011 birthday are finished at the Watson house....enjoy some of the random shots from the morning of race cars, thomas trains and " I'm the fastest"....boys are so competetive:)
{we ended the day off with pizza when daddy came home and Nana/Grandpa joined too!}

{horsefly} Arts on the fly

Monday, July 11, 2011

this is the first year we've been to this local music festival...its located in horsefly...about an hour away!~ it was a lovely sunny day for a drive. The music was great. I could have stayed all day. My troops were fading quickly after about 4 hours of snacks, hula hoop, playground, icecream and music. We headed it for home. Carrigan and Grady were asleep ASAP!~ Makenna read the whole way home and I just enjoyed the silence and green scenery...
LOVE LOVE this mural. Looks as though it was painted on a tarp of some sort...located at the horsefly school. Artsy bunch out there...Grady thought it was a grand game to run back and forth to mom... maybe next year we'll camp out that way and the kids can hang out with daddy while I sit on the green grass and enjoy the music...

{108 Mile House Wedding} detail

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

I love weddings....the love and connection between two people in love it is an amazing thing to witness. I have the most amazing job in the world. I get to capture these moments thru my lens...I have the honour to be present during the  expressions of their love!~a very important day to say the least! 
I met up with Tara & Steve and instantly fell witness to their connection. Tara is my perfect bride. Organized & creative! A girl after my own heart. Here is some items she has forwarded to be about their big day. The amazing spot to where the wedding nuptials will take place~and oh yes there is a story behind this location (you will have to wait for that)~ and a color swatch of their plan!
As my kids would say only 17 more sleeps....

{week 49} schools out...

Monday, July 4, 2011

week 49....wow only 3 more posts till I completed my 52 weekly challenge of pics of the three of them. This is the morning of the last day of school!!! Happy faces and happy feet!~ "summer holidays" are upon us...although we're just wishing for sunshine at the moment. Feeling a little cabin feverish...tired of our rainy day activities...hopefully this week will bring some sun our way~
happy summer to all!

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.  ~James Dent

{birthday} Makenna is 8

Sunday, July 3, 2011

Beach party for Makenna this year....the weather had me sooo worried. No I didn't have a back up plan...rain or shine. It was  raining on our way out to Nana and Grandpa's house...but it stopped and the skies cleared. We played some "crazy" badminton in the wind...check out the blue skies a sight we haven't seen much yet.

lots of fun had by all! badminton rackets also make great guitars as seen by C & O below. I attempted Cake pops for Makenna's cake...they don't transport very well. But the kids liked them!

Also a picture of Makenna and Ty: birthday buddies! Ty's mom and I met in the hospital with our new babes!~

 photo booth fun...my kids love love dress-up I robbed their dress up box and added a few new things and off we go for a fun and silly photobooth! Even uncle stuck a pose!

well this isn't what I envisioned for the day....I thought they would be swimming and playing in the water like a usual july day...and then come up on the grass and make a smoothie....but otherwise the smoothie bar was a hit! we had kiwi, pineapple, mango, coconut milk, cherry, and more...Mmmmm tasty!
I was sooo tired after this busy day....only 9 more days till the next birthday....at least grady's will be small and simple!~cars and trains!
