OK here's the results of one day of retail Therapy!

First of all I wanted to say a "HI" to Shannon and to Alyx...some new blog readers!! Its such a fun thing to 'meet' new people! and Yes Alyx..I promise I will work on drinking more water... I used to be really good at it when I was working...but being at home...I tend to just get lazy about it! is what I drug home with me...these are all Jax's.. I think he shold be covered for this fall and winter...and even some of next summer too...with the exception of some winter boots! got some gap clothes ( on sale) and then most of the rest is from the children's place.
I got most of the summer clothes for next year from the local superstore...gotta love them sometimes..the green plaid shirt and denim shorts..were 4.94 together...:D

this is Rylee's shirt from GYmboree, quite a bunch from the childrens place...then the rest from superstore.. 2 fav outfits in there..the green pants, with yellow shirt, hair bandana and green tulip purse...and then the denim skirt with striped ribbing, the yellow shirt above it, and the pink and green down vest with detachable fake fur collar... When I walked into Gymboree there were these boots calling Ry's took all I had to walk out of the store without them... but 60 bucks for kids boots....I just couldnt do it...maybe if they had been lined..and she could have used them all winter...but unfortunately not here in Alberta! LMAO! and then

here is what I got for me... 4 tanks for old navy and one pair of the comfiest Mat pants EVER..Im not big enough to be in mat pants yet..but I wore these around the house the other night..and Im gonna head back into town today to see if I can pick up a green pair also...I think I may wear these babies forever... I have always wanted some Camo pants...and I love how these fit in the legs and the butt..they SOO dont look or feel like mat pants!

One final of my mamma's from SK ordered one of these. when her shipment arrived there were guess who is gonna grab it off of her? yup me! Im so pumped...the first thing I have bought for the new baby... poor thing is gonna have lots of hand me downs from bro and I figured why not!.

We are back!!!!!!

OK so that was the hottest holiday I have ever been on..and I was only 35 minutes from home...Central alberta is in a heat wave right now...we have had hot weather for over 2 getting so tired of it...ok and for my American for us Here in like 30...and we only get a few of those days in the summer....its been over 32 just about every day for 15 days...yesterday was 36...just converted that to 97F...bloody hot for us...It rained some last night, and we woke up to an overcast day...but by 2 pm this afternoon it was back up to 31C again....the big difference is that ususally we cool down here at night..down to like 14ish...and it hasnt its crappy in the house..its not getting a chance to cool off, so its just hot all the time...Im sitting here im my undies and a tank...LOL sorry if TMI...its just too dang hot!

The day before I left on holidays I delivered the proofs to the bride...she was THRILLED with them!...HOW COOL IS THAT??? I ended up printing off just over 200 proofs for them to go thru!..LOL have FUN!..muahahahahahah... still waiting on a signed release from them...I cant wait to show you a few....maybe I will call her tomorrow!. LOL!

As far as the photography goes... Im on a bit of a hiatus... Im not usre if it is because of all the editing and proofing I had to do for the wedding pics...or what. but LOL... I am just enjoying life too much right now to always tote that dang camera bag around and try to take pics...imagine..on holidays camping for 6 days...I took like..50 pics MAX...I never ever thought I would do that...but I was just plain having too much fun...

Here are a few from camping....My kids filthy...they have cheezie, freezie, roasted marshmellow, dirt, sunscreen and some sand on their faces....nothing but fun as I see it! They stayed up til they were exhausted...and then we slept in until like 9am, we spent just about every day at the beach in the warm we had a blast!! No mosquitoes, and a pile of laughs! and Ry continues to sleep at night in her panties!...HOORAY!!! NO accidents at all while we were camping...which Im glad about cuz I didnt think about bringing a plastic cover for the bunk! tsk tsk...

Here is Ry on the up side of the sugar rush....gotta love that stare she's got going on there! LMBO!
...and of course the crash following... LMAO!You just gotta love those crashes...I actually cant belieive I got the proof in the camera! happened right before my eyes!...boy did we laugh!

And one of my lil man!...what wild camping hair he has...( he gets it from his should see the SIL hair! LMAO!!!!! I hope she doesnt read this..or she will get me for sure! LOL)

He got to experience a ton of new stuff...what ants taste like...and charcoal...eww...he got some out of the other not used fire pit....and had it in his mouth before I could stop him! swallowing though..he spit it right out...sheesh..can't imagine why!

I am slowly getting them back into their 'normal' routine again...but I guess in real life..that routine is always evolving right?

We ran all over town( well actually 2 towns) trying to find Ry some Crocs...Man are these shoes cool!..they are comfy and light...and best of all she will be able to put them on herself...which is the total reason I'm hunting for them! anyways...found one store that has them for kids..but they are all sold out..but they are supposed to be getting more in any day I need to keep on that!

We went to the park after doing some running around today and I actually brought my camera and took some pics...a few really nice ones I think...I will try to get to editing them tonight..and post them for tomorrow...

Dh is doing super..he has already flown his solo flight, and has been doing 30-45 minutes circuits alone!...He hopes to be doing his flight test on the 1st of say a lil prayer for him!!!!!

OK thats my big update for now... stay tuned for more.. LOL!..oh yeah...and my 3rd year old has been a wonderful little girl this past week!...

OH YESSSSSs while camping jax got two more teeth...we are standing at a grand total of 6 now...LOL..he is just about 16 months old...6 teeth! ROFLMAO! oh well! got some good pics of his new teefy smile today...:D! Take care and thanx for stopping by!
