Jason and I went out on a "date" on Tuesday night. I was home with the kids and....

Me: I'm just going to run upstairs and get pretty for my date with dad.

Riley: But you already are pretty.

I went upstairs and got myself ready. I was debating on wearing a hat. I came downstairs to get the kids thoughts...

Me: What do you think? Hat? Or no hat?

Simon: I think no hat. I can see more of your beautiful face.

Another one bites the dust

An Adventure A Day - The Doner Family - Cancelled

Sadly, we had to cancels today's adventure with our friends because this is what Simon has looked like since 6:00am. He hasn't moved. He hasn't eaten. If you know Simon you know that he must really not be feeling well, he usually is in constant motion.

Girl Time

Riley and I headed down to my mom's for a little girl time. We packed it all into 24 hours.


Out for dinner

And shopping, shopping, shopping.

I even got one full hour all to myself while my mom took Riley to the park. I will be honest with you, I didn't know what to do with myself and I felt a bit guilty for laying on the coach and watching T.V. for an hour during the day.

An Adventure A Day - Bree, Izzy and Kate

We were lucky enough to have Bree, Izzy and Kate stop in at our house for the afternoon on their way home from a cottage. Visits with them are always so fantastic, we wish there were more of them.

Last Cottage Week Of The Summer {sniff, sniff}

We spent yet another glorious 10 days at the cottage. We can not express enough how lucky we are to have a cottage to go to.

We did all the usual stuff.

Rock walking

Swimming with "poodle noddles"

Exploring the forests

Exploring the forbidden and dangerous areas

Roasting marshmallows

Playing in the sand

Posing for pictures

Ice cream at "the muffin shop" in Burks Falls

We went on many new adventures too.

The Sunflower festival in Sunridge.

Finding a beach and playground off the beaten path

Meeting up with Devyn for some fun in Magnetawan

Riley conquers the monkey bars

Finding and exploring the Katrine beach and new playground

I caught a snake. And, finally got Jason to hold it...he is more excited than the kids.

Playing on the new teeter totter

A day with Ella, Ian and Sara at their cottage

Chilling in the lake on "Coopers boat"

Camping out in the backyard. Riley, Simon and Jason slept in the tent. Cooper and I stayed in the cottage.

Relaxing in Al's hammock

Riley also conquered the lake. She swam all the way across the bay. I was swimming with her so no photos.

We are already looking forward to getting back up there this fall.
