july, it's been a long one.

July has been a long, tired, sometimes sad, sometimes fun month. There has been lots of falling into bed past midnights, lots of up half the nights with a restless, hot, fussy kids. Lots of cancelled outdoor play dates due to the unseasonably cold and wet weather we are having this summer. Wait? did I just contradict myself? I did! One hot nasty day, the next rain and cold. It's so weird but in all honesty I am not complaining, I really don't like the heat.

 Here are a few of the things we have been up to...

turkey chicks
We hatched our first turkey chicks this month. I love hatching chicks. There is something about walking into the coop hearing those little "peep peeps" that make your heart pitter patter. I have never had turkey's before, and no they are not for Thanksgiving dinner!

water parks
This kid can not get enough of water parks. We have a few local ones, but just found a really nice one one the weekend while we were at a Ds picnic. The picnic was good, just one of the rare hot days we had made for a cranky pair of kids later in the day.

raspberry social
Our local country store has a raspberry social for Canada day. Everyone lines up and for a small donation you get this HUGE raspberry shortcake. Simple, but oh so good.

Kittens learning the hard way that the side of the tub is slippery. He fell in about 2 seconds after this picture. He didn't panic, but I did!

warm bodies
Bazinga loves Basil. He really likes our other dog too, but she is a little bit more independent. Two lazy animals are cuter than one.

This week consists of getting ready for another market, sewing, and crafting (as much as I can anyways.)

Have a good week, I am off to the thrift store :)
