So we are back...for now! This weekend we have a wedding in Rochester, but should be around after that! We had a great time at the cottage again and are sad we aren't going back up this year. The kids swam and played a lot outside (despite the timid weather). Zach and I both read a book and got some much needed relaxation. I would love to report that we got a lot of rest as well, but you all know how well kids sleep when they aren't in their own bed ;o) ANYWAYS...here are some pics!!!

Cooper having fun in his airplane

Kylie loved to run and jump off the end of the dock

Another beautiful Canadian sunset

What we love to do most...sit and watch the sun set on the dock!!! (this is my dad and Shawna by the way)

I will post more when I get them!!!

Snow in July

I know it has been a while since my last post. We have been at KidQuest all week learning about Jesus. The kids had a great time and I was able to teach the 4 and 5 year olds. We WILL be going back again next year!

Anyways...we got a surprise hail storm this week. Although the kids had fun...it did some damage to my plants. Not too fun for mommy. Here are some pics..
Notice my plants underneath:o(

Note: this is the hail about 30 mins after the storm...so imagine how big it really was???!!!

On another note, we are looking forward to spending the week at my parents cottage. It is always nice and relaxing there and much needed after a CRAZY few weeks!

Dance Camp

Kylie is attending Dance Camp this week for the first time. Let me tell you...she LOVES it! She is too darn cute in her little ballet outfit and watching all of the 3 year olds try and dance is hilarious. Thought I would include a pic from her first day.

And this is what Cooper thought of dance class....

A "cute" one of Ky and Mommy last Sunday before church...

NOTE: the following is NOT for those with weak stomach's....

Cooper decided to paint a picture on the stairs for me yesterday...if you are interested in the details you can ask me...otherwise, I will leave them out! Wish I could have got a picture him, but he was in the tub at this point.
