Deck Building/Family Building

So today we gathered at the "new" homestead to help Dad build a deck. It was advertised as a Deck-building, Family building day. Us ladies left the men to the deck and focussed on the family building part. Complete with a trip to the park/splash pad, playing in the backyard, barbecuing, and some Baileys to finish it all off...

Guess who they're supporting in the World Cup?

The new deck going up... Tim had his first lesson in construction today, he manned a drill and screwed all the deckboards down.
This is where Mom and Dad's barbecue/patio set will be. It's the opposite side from John & Kim's part of the house, so nice and private. For John and Kim, I mean... :)
Tim showing Jeremy how it's done.

Freezies on the trampoline!
More freezies!
Deanna and Kylie matched nicely today
Cooling off in the kiddie pool

...and the big kiddie pool! I missed John's cannonball...

Class trips!

Today Tim and Natalie both went on Class Trips! Tim's is a little longer - they are off to Ottawa for the week! Lots of excitement at school this morning.... Grade 7&8 has been looking forward to and fundraising for this trip for two years!
Packing up the vans...
Can we fit all this stuff in here?

Don't forget the candy - do you think this is enough? This was but one of several duffel bags full of goodies - I hope they brought some clothes as well!
And they're off....

Bye guys - have a fun week!
After they were away, I went along with Natalie's kindergarten class to Storybook Gardens for the day. What a picture perfect day it was - the weather was nice and warm, but not hot or humid. Nice for walking, but still warm enough for the splash pad...
The obligatory group shot by Humpty Dumpty:
This is the whole Kindergarten class, both teachers, and Erin's 2 younger boys.
Looking at the animals at Old MacDonald's Farm:

And having a "picnic"....

Then my camera batteries died, sorry... would have had some really cute splash pad shots, but you'll just have to imagine all these cuties having a hoot in the water!
