Random Happenings.....

I am really irritated! I had a post all written up and was about to submit it when {POOF} it disappeared! Where did it go? I don't know but now I have to start all over again and I'm not happy about that!Anyways, it was yesterday and it was going to be a Five On Friday but now that its Saturday I'll have to try something else ; / So here's just the highlights of what we've been up to the last week or two.......

~ I {finally!!!!!!} got a new {to me anyways} camera!!! I am sooooooo excited about this! Almost as excited as the birth of my children ; ) Just kidding! But its up there! I found a good deal on a Canon Rebel on Ebay and snatched it up. I got it on Wednesday and have been taking pictures almost non stop. Its been way fun and I'm so excited to have a camera that will take decent pictures instead of using the crappy one I've had to put up with for the last year and a half. I will be post lots of pictures soon!!

{O.K, I couldn't wait...Just had to put a couple pictures up}

~ Last Sunday we took the kids on a {mini} vacation up to Duluth. We stayed at The Edge Waterpark. It was so much fun and the kids didn't want to leave. They asked quite a few times if we could move there or at least stay there for 14 days. It was probably the most enjoyable to the 3 oldest since Audrey and Owen were freaked out of all the water spraying and the loud rushing of water. Ben and I took turns watching the little ones while the other had fun with the older ones. I love the water slide and had to beg the boys a few time to go with me. We went there about 4 years ago and it was way more fun this time because the kids have gotten older and could enjoy more of the park. We will most definatly be going there again!

~ Daddy and Clint are on there way to pick up a camper that we found on Craigslist. We are so thrilled about this! We love camping and its going to be so much more fun with a camper! Its really old! As old as me- made in 1982!  We figured ther was no point in spending a ton on a newer model since having 5 children will most definatley be hard on it!

~ My sister's Daughter Gianna had her "Tea" shower on Wednesday. I love having an excuse to go to our favorite Tea Shop Cricket Meadows. Its really fun when you can go with all your friends too!

~We have scheduled Audrey's surgery for June 25th. We had hoped to get in sooner but there was some confusion with scheduling. This is probably going to work out for the best anyways sonce we'll be done with school by then and I won't have to worry about taking more time off. I'm really nervous about driving down there by myself. I do not drive well in big cities! We will have to go down the day before to meet with the surgeons. There will be 3-4 days of recovery down there too.

~We had our last Homeschool Co-op day this week. We do have a couple activivities still with the group but it was our last regular Co-op. The kids love going to our group. They learn all kids of things and love having fun with their friends. They have been working most of the year on a Musical that they will be preforming at the end of this month called "Down By The Creek Bank" I'm really excited to see how they do! I've been having fun listening to the sing the songs they are learning for it.

~ It is such a beautiful day today. We are planning on meeting my sister and her kids for a picnic and time to play at a park. The kids are really happy and keep asking when we are going to leave! I'm hoping to be able to take pictures too.

  1. That's great that you were able to get a new camera! The Rebel is such a good one! I'm excited to see pictures of your camper! I love camping too - ours is a '77 and pretty small, no "permanent" beds - all have to be converted at bedtime (ie. the "sofa" and table) but I love it anyway and ur not even in the camper that much so it doesn't really matter! We'll all have to go some place together this summer! I'm bummed I missed Gianna's Baby Tea :(, sounds like you guys had a good time!
