Enjoying the summer

Category: Journal

It has been a long time since I've written a post – it's a lot harder to do stuff like this between the kids and working full time.  By the time the kids are in bed I'm usually exhausted!    Since I've written last, Tristan started wearing glasses and Rhys started walking.  Well, Rhys just recently started walking – it's quite funny really.  He doesn't pick his feet up off the ground very high so it's a little awkward still.  And he falls a lot.  Give him a month and I'm sure he'll be golden!

Troy and I took some time off over the long weekend.  Daralynn and Sheldon were here with their kids so we got to spend time on the water with them.  We have been really blessed with hot weather (a little too blessed, judgeing by the fires) and have been outside on the water a lot. Both our boys have been celebrating a lot of firsts lately.  Rhys has had his first steps, his first words, his first time enjoying ice cream and corn on the cob.  Tristan has had his first pair of glasses, his first sailing trip, his first ride on a sea-doo, and his first wasp bite.

We have been trying really hard to spend quality time with the kids – taking them to playgrounds and including them in gardening when we're not at work.  As you can see by the pictures, we have been spending a lot of time on the water – the best part of summer!  Well I know all you really care about is the pictures, so here they are!
