331 comments in June...amazing considering what everyone had going on, nicer weather outside and whatnot.

I bet we can reach 350 for July

I'll update the top posters thread later this week Just before anyone asks lol.

Challenge for July...at least 3 people should post at least 5 topics. I'll add to the prize money for the overall top poster if this happens

I can't believe how time flies, and how busy I've been! I have no clue where June went! We're finally enjoying HOT weather, but as luck would have it our AC went, and it's such an old machine, that the company won't fix it, just replace... looking at a couple of grand we don't have right now... Soooo we're meeeeeelting!

Oh no! I feel you're melting pain. The house we moved into doesn't have air either. We've been painting, moving and fixing while my thermometer out front that is in the shade has been reading 35* and up. Not fun! The moving truck comes tomorrow for the big stuff, I'm hoping its a little cooler.

No air either. We have no heat ducks so we will never get central air we have a portable one that works.....as long as I don't cook. So that being said I am cooking for a crew....outside. I have tables and slow cooker and a portable roaster all cooking outside.

Wow, crazy!

I can't believe I have to go back to work next month Its going to suck not spending all day with Cam.

Woohoo! Fireworks are on tonight!!!! Apparently things have dried out enough! It will probably be mushy on the grass so we won't be getting super close.

We usually have the opposite problem for fireworks as everything gets so dry we are under burn bans, but this was a particularly wet spring so we will watch them from our yard sitting around a fire! I can't wait! We should be far enough away that we won't need hearing protection.

I hate fireworks!!! The only thing I'm happy about is that this is the last weekend this year that people are allowed to set them off. I don't have to see or hear them again until next May. Yes, I'm a scrooge!

Moving truck tomorrow. I have to have all the kids up and ready by 7:30am to pick up the truck at 8:00am. We have 10 hours to pack and move everything. Too bad none of you are close enough to help or I'd be recruiting!

Exciting!!!!! You have to go before 32 weeks...after that, apparently things are quite cramped in there and the pictures don't turn out.

Good luck today Caroline!!!!

Fireworks were good...not dried out, my chair was sinking, so we went and stood in the parking lot (very few others did, but we could see quite fine). Cam did great but had a meltdown in the car on the way home poor guy.

Just popping in! I hope everyone had a great Canada Day!

We had a busy weekend! Family reunion on Saturday, Sophia's party on Sunday, and Canada Day yesterday. The kids had a great time with the pony rides, bouncy castles, and face painting! Here's a couple of pictures, but I still need to upload the rest

Alyssa:


Rylan, the zombie!


Sophia loved getting her face painted, but wasn't happy about having her picture taken!


And Hannah and I at the family reunion

I love a good deal so much!

We had such a great evening last night! Sat by the fire in our yard, watched the lightening bugs flashing across our field, and then moved our lawn chairs about 20ft to see the fireworks from the nearby village over the trees! It was perfect!
