We have had a fairly low key summer travel wise since returning from Lethbridge but we have managed to go camping twice, as well as do lots of outdoor stuff around here. We just got back from Bear Creek, our favourite camping spot. We went for four nights and after the first night we snagged our favourite site.
The weather was nice the first day and then mainly cloudy (with a little rain but thankfully not too much). It was quite warm so the boys could still play in the water.
Apparently the joy of making faces on windows is genetic. Ty likes to do it as well but Zeke gleans a certain joy from it that only I can understand. ;) There are many a picture of me floating around making very similar faces to this one. Although I do a better pig nose than Zeke. (He is still young, he has a few more years to perfect it)
What does one do in the rain? Put goofy face stickers on everyone. Zeke had face stickers everywhere and he still has some of the remnants on. And yes drink beer. When trapped under a tiny tarp with three boys and face stickers one also needs a beer. ;)
Having three kids is definitely busier than two (Duh!) ;) but the boys have helped make it a fairly easy transition by being excellent big brothers to Levi That definitely doesn't mean they don't fight with each other but they are quite lovely to their baby brother.
The morning of our 13th anniversary. Sadly there are not pictures of us together. :(
Anniversary dinner with friends. (Don't worry we did go out later in this week for dinner just the two of us and said friends above looked after Levi for us. Thanks Paulina and Jamison!!)
Ty's face in this second picture makes me laugh.
The rest of our summer has been spent at home, doing outdoor excursions. Like going to the park across the street and Zeke climbing much too high for mommy's liking:

Double fisting the homemade popsicles:

I haven't had time to do laundry ;-)but I have had time to make several peach and blueberry pies. Mmmm
Speaking of mmmm, (namely the first picture) here are a few extra pictures of our Lethbridge trip that got missed in our last post:
Julie and Lowell took some newborn pictures of Levi for us. So cute!
Newborn picture outtakes: Hee hee
In order to get all those cute newborn photos you see, photographers blow hot air on the babies to keep them sleepy and warm. Who knew!! The secrets of the trade here folks.
This was not free. A candy apple as big as his head. Enjoyed while watching a puppet show.

Our last night in Lethbridge, spent on Nana and Papa's deck eating cupcakes. Great end to a wonderful trip!
And I will leave you with this pic of Levi, showing off his face making skills. He's gettin' good . . .
