Emily Loves Softball

Emily is loving softball again this year!

Tonight her team played a great game and brought in 7 runs!  Emily ran through the bases and crossed home on the 5th run of the night!

Here she is at bat - she got hit by the ball after a pitch and was walked to 1st base.  No injury, it was a slow pitch.

 Here are the shots I got of her running the bases.  Waiting on 1st, ready to run on 2nd and taking off at 3rd.

New Bikes for the kiddos!

The kiddos keep growing... no matter how many times we tell them to stop, they just keep growing!  As if buying new clothes wasn't bad enough, they had to go and outgrow their bikes as well!
So, it was time for new bikes!  Off to the store we go!

Here are some excited kids!

Kids in February

Here's Bradley after a quick stop at Krispy Kreme for some donuts (and hats).  I love how he's wearing his headphones under his hat!!

Iain & I saw this outfit in the store window at the mall and thought it would be perfect for Emily.  So we took her to the store about a week later and let her try it on.  It was so cute, we just had to get it for her!

A Beautiful Summer Day

Bradley was playing Flag Football through parks and recreation this week.  The field was so big that I couldn't get any good pictures of him playing.

But, here's Emily on the sidelines during his last practice.

Swimming in the Sun

A good friend of mine, Sherry, lives just a few minutes away and has a beautiful pool in her backyard.  She also has 2 young girls about Emily and Bradley's ages and they all get along great.  This summer, we've been fortunate enough to have been invited over a few times so the kids can go swimming in the pool and the Mom's can hang out in the shade and chat!  Usually, my friend Jonnelle joins us with her daughter as well.

Here are some photos that I took while watching the kids splash last week.

Oh Emily - always ready to show off for the camera!

And there's Bradley - couldn't get him to stop swimming long enough for a photo!

Yes!  That's Lucy in the pool!  Check out the cool life jacket I found for her!

She seemed to like the water, but didn't want to stay in too long... 

It's been such a busy summer that it's nice to just sit by the pool with a cup of coffee and watch the kids have fun with their friends!

Summer on the Island

The kids and I took a weekend trip to visit David & Tannis at their semi-new house on Whidby Island.  They moved in a few years ago, but we've just never had the chance to go visit until now.  The house is beautiful, they have really done a lot of work to it and it looks great!  Life on the island suits them both well!

The kids had a wonderful weekend!  They got to go on their first ferry ride!  We also enjoyed the annual Loganberry Festival just a few miles down the road from "The Oar House", as Davy calls it!

Enjoy the photos!

It was WINDY on the ferry!

Emily and Lucy checking out the "dog room" and the comfy dog beds!

Emily got picked up at the Loganberry Festival!

Tractor riding!

A bit of soccer in the back yard with Uncle David and Auntie Tannis.

Emily posing in the back yard.  
You can see a bit of the barn that Davy built in the background.  It was the old horse barn that Tannis grew up with, they dismantled it, moved it and are rebuilding it.  The barn is done, but they are still working on the stables.

 I know I had more photos of Bradley from the weekend, but their not moving over from the phone to the computer.. have to figure out this new phone!  Haha!

I do wish that I had taken more photos of the house and property, but, I'll have to remember that for the next visit.

Trampoline Fun!

It was forecast to get up into the triple digits today, so I decided to take the kids to the INDOOR Trampoline Park for an hour of jumping fun!

It's a bit difficult to get photos of them when they are in constant motion, but I tried!

Emily loves to build houses out of all the foam blocks!
