Mr. Reeves turns 30!

We spent the weekend in Calmar & Devon, AB celebrating our close friend’s birthday. Darrin Reeves turned 30 and there was a bash for him at his in-law’s house…thanks Mr. & Mrs. O’Dowd. Hannah did a wonderful job of planning the party and made a fabulous pool table cake for her hubby. Here are a couple of photos from the pool party.

This chair has been the most-well-spent $60 I've ever made. She loves this chair! I'd put my recommendation on it to all parents.

My Mom met this guy last week in Minot, ND. He was staying at the same hotel as my parents were. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was filming there. The episode will be aired in mid-October. My parents even got to take a look at the finished house, they were doing a practice-run of moving 'the bus' when they were there.

Officially Crawling!

It's official...Scarlett (7 months) started to crawl yesterday and today she's motoring around here like a pro. I sat her down on the floor today to play, she started to cry and then realized 'hey, I can move now'. We are all ecstatic for her...go baby go!

Summer Holiday 2006

We went on our Summer Family Holiday a few weeks was so wonderful. We loved being together with our friends: the Hills, the Allans & the Craigs on beautiful Mabel Lake in BC. It was 10 days of relaxing enjoyment. The kids played well together and slept great. It's something we'd like to continue year after year.
