Project 365 - Day 151: Nuthin' But Net!

Finally! Thomas (and I) put up Gavin's basketball net as a surprise for him when he came home from Cha-Cha's and a sleepover.

Project 365 - Day 150: Nice Face!

Yeah, 'nuff said!

Project 365 - Day 149: The Drain

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.

Project 365 - Day 148: Got another...

stupid skin rash which is as itchy as all get out.

Project 365 - Day 147: My Little...

...spies. They like to dress up and play spies. Its quite cute.

Project 365 - Day 146: Professor Gavin

Project 365 - Day 145: Beer Can Chicken!

OMG! Best chicken I have ever had. Ever. Delicious!

Project 365 - Day 144: The Gallo Brothers!

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!

Project 365 - Day 143: My Boy!

My boy posing for me! He looks so sweet and innocent here...and most importantly, he's quiet!

Project 365 - Day 141: A Winnipeg Institution!

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!

Project 365 - Day 140: Kebabs!

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!

Project 365 - Day 139: Soccer Practice

An action shot of Q! at soccer practice!

Project 365 - Day 138: The Big Itch

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)

Project 365 - Day 137: Muffin Tin Meals

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.

Project 365 - Day 136: My little Helper

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!

Project 265 - Day 135: The Pool

Acrobatics in the water on a hot day with one of my kids best friends!

Project 365 - Day 134: Reading...

...away her fines at the St Vital Library.

Project 365 - Day 133: Happy Canada Day!

What a way to enjoy Canada Day, poolside with friends!

Project 365 - Day 132: Last Day!

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!

Project 365 - Day 131: The Zoo

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!
