Only Two More Sleeps Until Summer Vacation!

We couldn't be happier to report that Marcella is back for her annual summer visit! For the past two years, she has been living in South Korea, however, that part of her journey has ended and in two months she's off to Spain (didn't she just get here!?). We try not to think about how much we'll miss her and just enjoy the time that we do get to spend with her.

As all great big sisters do, she brought the kids presents. An alphabet train set for Max and a Princess/Butterfly dress-up set for Artemis. Truly unique and what every kid(s) needs!

The other day Ed was vacuuming and I was babysitting (read: trying to keep track of) the kids. At one point Artemis just up and disappeared (she's not a fan of the vacuum). Ed and I looked everywhere for her. The only reason why I found her was because she moved.

I am a Stuffed Animal.

The Zoo is so excited to begin the next chapter of our journey, our annual visit to the Family Farm Compound in Grey County. We will be gone for at least one month, with a week of September Camp in August thrown in.

Negligence with a Touch of Guilt

I have been so negligent.
That and my conscience Ed haven't been reminding me to post.
See, it's not my fault.

We spent the weekend with our neighbours Marcella and her friend Laura.
When we were home, we ate chez Chef Marcella. Think Mediterranean. Yum.
We were hardly ever at home.
Just long enough to let Aunt Lynn know that we were thinking of her (and her new hip).

In all my guilt,
I took some pictures.
A lot of them.
Enough to make up for the week that I didn't take any.
