Auntie Becky's visit

Well David was away at his course this Jan. my sister Becky came up to visit us!! It was a blast. I didn't tell the girls that she was coming just took them to the airport to wait and see who was coming ( you can see it in the video). We had a blast with her. She painted nails, read books, cuddled and we had so much needed sister/girl time. David was able to come home for the weekend when she was here so we took her out on the ice road... it was fun to experience with her!!!

Auntie Becky making Lily laugh!

It was WAY to cold to bring Caleb out of the car so we only got a 4 person family photo!!!

She was so cold!!!

Fingers and toes all painted up!!!

This is my fav pic of the whole week she was here.. I love Beanie's face in this face.. priceless!!

"It tickles..."

Rae picnic spot

Last summer we drove out a couple times to a great picnic spot just past Rae. We decided that we were going to head out there the end of March and see how much snow was left. We thought that perhaps we would be able to at least make it to a picnic table and enjoy our lunch there!

Well..... we were a tad bit optimistic!! There was still snow everywhere!!

But we made the best of it! We ate our lunch in the car and then walked out on the lake ( gotta admit.. the mama in me was a tad bit nervous!) and then let the girls run around... you will notice all the garbage around... and no we don't let our kids play at the dump... it was just really dirty there..

The girls had fun though, and thats what counts!!

Madi took this picture of me... I think we might have a future photographer on our hands!!

Jumping off the dirty snow piles!!

My girl!

Jumping girl....
( not to toot my own horn but I really do love this picture.. how she is framed by the trees and you can tell she is just having so much fun!)

Poster children for Canadian North!!


She would fall on the snow and then just wait to be helped up... cause "heaven forbid" her hands touch the snow!!

See what I mean... she just stayed down there till I took the picture and then helped her up!! Such a rascal!
