Proof kids live here.

German pretzel time! I shared this recipe on today. Lucky me, I get to eat the results :)

Even dandelions can be beautiful.

 Time to get Avenger-ing!

May 5, 2015
I let my voice be heard at the polling station. I just wish Alberta had not voted NDP! Blah!

Brynae should be so proud of herself! She absolutely ROCKED this school play where she played the lead. Grandma and Grandpa G even made the trip to watch and support her. It was a blast!

May 7, 2015
Our little scientist did a fabulous project showcasing a tricky parallel circuit with her pal, Gillian. She should feel very proud of herself!

A little table tennis game with one of her BFFs from church, Kali. These two get along like peas and carrots!

May 9, 2015
Our stake Primary put on such a fun activity for the kids in our stake. They registered for different classes and learned something new - afterward showcasing their creations/talents in a show. Fun!

Happy mother's day to me! I love these sweethearts with everything I am - they make me want to be better and do better. I love them!

Aspen has discovered he likes to run with the big dogs! He was in puppy heaven, running with a pack.

May 12, 2015
This is what my mornings often consist of - answering emails for my various jobs.

May 13, 2015
Another proud moment for this creative girl - her wire sculpture of a snake was put on display at the Esplanade Art gallery for all to see. It was the only wire sculpture there, and it looked right at home. Way to go, B!

 My mother's day gift from Lyndon was well worth the extra few days' wait - it is an amazing pearl bracelet with beads representing the birthstones of our family. I'm in love!

May 15, 2015
A very special day - Grandpa, and the dads took their youth-aged kids to the Calgary temple to do baptisms, and they used family names which made it even more special.

We tough. I learned how to demolish and rebuild a deck for my in laws! Just don't ask me to do it again.

May 17, 2015
Here is what Jeff and Judy's deck looked like with all the old boards pulled off. We replaced them with the maintenance free, duradeck boards. Very cool stuff. Too bad it was raining much of the weekend and we had to take longer getting it done.

May 18, 2015
Here is how the deck looked by Monday - I also learned how to install the railings. It looks great!

B busy at work making some snacks for a youth activity!

JJ went on a field trip to Calgary to see a couple of shows and visit other downtown hotspots. She took this fabulous shot of the iconic Calgary Tower, which they also visited.

May 21, 2015
We've been really enjoying taking Aspen to one of the dog parks here in town. He loves running around with the other dogs - but he doesn't always listen so well when it's time for us to call him!

May 22, 2015
So, they've done it again - the girls saved their money to buy a big ticket item - this time it was this fun pool. I foresee lots of summer fun in this baby!

May 23, 2015
Now this is fun - the stake youth put on a car wash as a service to the community. Lots of cars were washed and lots of youth were soaked by the end.

May 24, 2015
Our little furball eyeing his all time favorite treat - popcorn. He goes crazy for it.
May 25, 2014
Our doggie took a dip in our new pool. Good thing he knew how to doggie paddle!

May 26, 2015
Kind of cool - while shopping at Dollarama, Lyndon took Aspen for a walk in the grassy area nearby. He noticed a couple of owls roosting in the store sign - and we caught lots of glimpses of the owls' droppings. Ewwww!

May 27, 2015
Aspen chasing a gopher down it's hole - and we mean DOWN the hole!

May 28, 2015
Giving this piano thing another try - the girls are doing a great job practicing,. Now, if only I can stick with the teaching part!

May 29, 2015
Someone got a haircut! Doesn't he look precious? Awwwww....

May 30, 2015
We said goodbye to Elder L. Tom Perry today as he left this life and moved on in his eternal journey. He was a strong and dedicated Apostle of the Lord and will be missed.
