A June Weekend To Remember

And… we jump forward a month! But I figured I really needed to first of all congratulate our friends Cory and Karen on their BEAUTIFUL wedding on June 14th. I have a few pictures to share.

My hair was done at the Regency school for hair etc... I LOVE IT!

I have a few from the ceremony but the camera did not like the ambiance and I really had a bad angle. Everyone looked amazing! (I will of course share any official photos I get my hands on eventually!)

We lucked out and though it was a rainy dad we had the sun peek through during pictures at the farm! And a special thank you to Darcy and Andy for watching our 5 kids to simplify our time out at this special event!!!

There were lots of creative shots but I was too busy giggling at the menfolk and their jokes or helping where I could to take pictures

The reception was a blast. I ended up with the adorable ring bearers (Evan and Nathan) and their baby brother (Jeffrey) and their grandparents with Ken at the head table. There was gaming buddies to finally meet with wives, fiances and children. So much fun! Also a photo booth (Ken and I took some pictures together which I have but yet to scan and Renee and I had a go too). I have to admit to cutting loose and drinking for the first  time in a decade or more! So not too many pictures, just lots of memories. 20140614_192912

Thanks Renee for this picture!

Thanks Renee for this picture!

Though Father’s Day was a rather sedate one (as Ken requested) I want to thank all the special men in our lives here who have willingly taken on the responsibility of  being a part of our children’s (and our) lives. There is no way we could have as rich and amazing a life without all of you there to share it! So a special thank you to Baba, Grandpa Reinsch, Grandpa Mike… and our God Daddies – Andy, Cory, Alan, Nathan and Scott. Thank you so much!!!

And for the 16th of June – a date special specifically to Ken and myself – we happily celebrated 13 amazing years of marriage. It may not have all been roses and sunshine but with a man like Ken to love and hold onto it has been a ride to remember. I cannot wait to experience all the many decades we have to look forward to. I love you dear!!!! A special  thank you to Cousin Robbie and the lovely Alicia who watched the fab 5 so we could get out without minions in tow!20140616_180305

Helping With Lily Bean and Other Moments

August 7-8

We have started a new thing with the little two… they have a special story time without their brothers where we read a chapter out of their book and then they draw their favourite parts and tell me what they remember from it. We finished our first book and boy were they proud! The next book is about tiny people with tails called The Littles… am I the only one who remembers these?101_3994

We finally got around to starting our Science project book… osmosis as shown by putting gummy bears in water overnight. I am not sure how quickly we will get through the box as Science is always our hardest to keep up with, but this dollar book from Target was a wonderful find!!!101_3997

Miss Echo is still attempting sporadic potty sitting… no results but we are giving it our best!101_3998

I am so glad there are tons of Wild Kratts yet to go through. I think we have learned more interesting tidbits about animals from them then anywhere else!

Of course we ran outside and enjoyed the playset. I am sure everyone is getting tired of these, but the smiles and joy is just too precious to not capture and share!101_4006

The 7th was also Lily Bean’s surgery on her birth mark on the back of her head. It was a day surgery and went off without a hitch but it meant that Scott and Bree had a long day and were more than willing to have me come over the next day and lend a hand! We spent a nice and quiet day keeping her from rubbing her head on anything, snuggling and chatting.

This is some amazing work! The scar should be minimal and the healing already looks good!

See how well she listens to the doctor who says leave the hat on to keep from rubbing... HAH
