Yesterday was a busy day - school, soccer, lunch with James and then off to physio and making pizza for supper.

Today we relaxed - Spence went off to Jonathan's for a sleep over and James & I went off to Foreman's to spend my gift certificate from grama / grampa and then out for an anniversary dinner at Teatro's. 

I managed to dig out my front garden area and put in the paving stones as a border - tomorrow it's time to transplant the stuff I bought into the new space.

Spence had a good time at the Museum today again - made bunkers out of silicon gel packs he was assigned to pack into bigger bags to make his job fun. 

While he was there, I did a bunch of errands - including getting all my plants for the front (that's my project this year - perennials in the front area + bricks).  I hope to get them all in over the weekend and then get the bricks.  I also got Spence his mouthguard for paintball. 

Once I picked up Spence, we went to Badlands to get a few things and then to the registries office to get a new license for Spence.

We got home and I unloaded the truck and then headed off to physio.  I made supper when I got home (perogies w gravy for James and me & hashbrowns for Spence) and then got Karma.  James is off to swim again tonight.

One more sick day .... we did school all day with lots of TV and rest in between.  Pretty much took it easy, Spence is looking a whole lot better tonight.

Spence woke up with tummy aches, body aches, head aches....some of it due to the level of activity yesterday, but some due to him being sick (last night, tummy troubles started).

He did school - we took it easy and then we cancelled drums and climbing.  My tummy is still not great either from yesterday, but probably not as bad as his.

Kelly, trying her hand at shooting

checking out the markers before game time

Ready to go .....


Happy Anni to Hubby :)

I actually remembered again for the 2nd year in a row.

Spence was up before 6:30 - in anticipation of his day out paintballing.  We all got up early and had breakfast, packed the car and after walking the dogs headed to Bragg Creek Paintball.

We met up with Joanne/Ritchie/Jacob, Donna/John/Jonathan and Kelly/Sam.  Joanne and Kelly both brought extra kids.  We had a total of 9 playing today.  James stayed behind while Kelly, Joanne and I went for a ride/walk along the river with Karma.  John & Donna came by later to hang out.

When the kids were ready for a break, we BBQ'd some lunch - hot dogs / burgers / potato salad / chips / etc and after the kids played another game / two we headed home. 

5 hours of play for $25 is good value!  We were tired and so the boys ordered Chinese and I made some orzo for myself - then we watched Fridge (pilot episode).  Overall a good night.

A good Sunday!

James was off to his tri race this morning and did well.  In the meantime, I got up and walked the dogs for almost an hour before coming home and napping on the patio in the sun.  By the time I was ready to get up and get a drink, James arrived home and we both relaxed.

Spence got up just before noon - just over 12 hours sleep!  We all relaxed and then James and I headed out for some errands - we got some more toys for Karma, picked up some supplies for tomorrow's outing at the Paintball Field and got some seafood for tonight.

We ended up making lobster tail for Spence, Ahi for James and we all had pasta with roasted potatoes, garlic and basil - very nice side for the boys and great main for me.  We finished it off with a new chocolate cake recipe called the Little Devil, which turned out really quite good.

Now it's time to relax and get to bed early so we're ready to head out tomorrow morning for a day of paintballing.
