Labour Day 2007

Another Labour Day has come and gone and we were lucky enough to spend it with friends at the Church's in the eastern townships.

Thanks Linda and Phil for letting us invade your home for a few days.

The kids (Ethan, Carter and Jade) had a great time and really kept themselves busy playing in our tent. It was great to see the boys playing with their little cousin.

We brought Ethan's ATV, unfortunately I misjudged the level of charge on the battery and didn't bring the charger. Next year I'm totally going to be prepared.


Or course we forgot beach toys, luckily the Church's neighbors lent some of the weekend and the kids had fun playing in the sand


And of course it was great to see so many old friends.


This labour day also let me have some time to play around with my camera and get some nice shots. Or at least I think so. Although I'm starting to see the limitations of a $200 digital camera. Thanks Jamie Hynes.


Hopefully next year Carter will get over his need to wake up between 5:30am and 6am and maybe sleep in a bit like his older brother. Of course there will be a dozen kids there next year so the chance of all of them sleeping in is pretty small. All I can say is thank god that the Church's have a microwave.

Baby Bark Lake Weekend

It's a big adjustment to go camping with kids. For example

1) When there is a bird right above your tent @ 5am 'kaw kawing" its heart out, your child will wake up.

2) Everthing is fare game to stick in their mouth… rocks, leafs, twigs, it's all good.

3) Children have no fear of spiders, yuck! Even if their parents do.
