Every time you drain the dish water, Boots is there like a bat out of hell. She loves the water when it drains! 'Course she gets there when its gone most of the time but she keeps trying.
Thanks to the Blondeau's and the Gallo brothers for an enjoyable evening playing crib and enjoying a white zinfandel while the kids played outside! It was a late night for them, good thing its summertime!

Took the kids to BDI tonight on the way home from work and Mini University. Its our first visit this summer and although we didn't partake in the creamiest shake, we enjoyed delicious cones and watched the people go by!
These kebabs are things of beauty! For $11, I got 4 hefty kebabs, rubbed with BBQ spice and specially made at Marcello's Meats located at 200 Meadowood Drive in St Vital (Winnipeg for those not in the know). Anyone in the city should check Marcello's out and support local. These were damn tasty indeed!
Well, I can't be positive but I'm pretty sure I contacted a poison of the ivy, sumac or oak variety and is it itchy as hell!! If I could have ripped my leg off to gnaw on it today, I would have. Luckily its not a big bout of it. Lizard, I feel your pain and sympathize! (and yes, I got it while geocaching)
I'd read about muffin tin meals in a few websites and blogs and thought I'd give the kids a "whatever" supper and serve it in a muffin tin. They love this kind of meal and they thought the appearance was quite interesting.
Gavin keeps offering to help me clean the bathroom and as much as I appreciate the offer, I keep telling him its really not a job for a 5 year old so I at least let him clean the mirror. It is, after all, mostly his fault that it gets so dirty!

Today was the last day of school and it was a sad one for my daughter, especially. She had Mrs Bunkowsky this year who was by far, the best teacher she's had in her young school life! As her gift, we made her a scrapbook page of the barn party that her family threw back in May. I think she really liked it!
It was a field trip to the Assiniboine Park Zoo for the whole school today!! Luckily it wasn't too hot or else many of the kids would have been miserable. We didn't have tons of time to spend in the actual zoo but we did get to see a few animals, including many peacocks strutting around and showing off their feathers!
