Tonight's Walk

Wow, this is the first time in it seems like forever that we've gone out on a good walk.  I think we walked for about an hour and a half tonight.  It took about 30 minutes to get everyone and everything in dad's van, but we made it and went to the brotherhood bridge trail and walked over to the school and let the kids play in the playground and walked back to the van.  It was a great walk.  It felt so good to get out in the sunshine (what was left of it) and get some fresh air.  There were even a few berries left for the kids to pick and eat on the way!  Enjoy!

Fun With Friends

Here's some pictures of my kiddos enjoying their friends Carly and Issac.  This Friday and last we've had them over to play.  Today my camera's batteries died while we were at the park so I didn't get as many pictures as I had hoped, but at least I got a few!  Enjoy!

Family Photos


We had our photos taken at 'Little Moments Photography' on Sunday afternoon.  These pictures make it look like it was easy, but it was pretty difficult to get all the kids to cooperate.  ENJOY!

What do you get for 400+ hours of Fire Fighter Training?

OK, so, Mike spent over 400 hours last year participating in Fire Fighter Training, and got this really cool jacket from his Volunteer Division Chief, Beth Weldon.  It has his name embroidered on it. 

To put it all into perspective; he works his regular job 37.5 hours a week, so this is like working at a second full time job for 11 weeks.  Baffling!  I know he was working hard at getting in some training, but 400+ hours?  Awesome!

Berry Picking Today

Well, today we went berry picking, after we did our errands and the twins had fallen asleep in the car - we found an awesome berry picking spot (or spots) in the area of the local University grounds.  Bushes are everywhere.  Mike and I lost track of time, but think we picked about 2 hours with the boys.  We think we got about 3 lbs of Salmon Berries and 2 lbs of Blue Berries.  I thought these pictures looked best with leaves :).  Next time we go picking I'll try to remember my camera!  Connor was so cute and loved eating as he was picking - Me: "put some berries in the bag" Connor: "no mama, I want to put them in my mouth, see..." I'm hoping to really pick a good lot of them this year so we have enough for all of my berry cooking / canning dreams.  Hahahahaha.  LOL.

Pics of Sprucewood Fire

The other morning (at about 2:30am) Mike's pager went off and there was a fire at the trailer court across the street from where we live.  He's in these pictures that his Chief Weldon took.  It was a total loss, Mike went inside with Captain Furgeson, wish I could have seen it in person, although, I could see the smoke and glow of the fire outside our bedroom window!
