Peapod Necklace DIY - Update

This is an updated post from 2012, with new pictures!
I made this one with turquoise beads because I love the silver/turquoise combo. Green and amber look beautiful too!

"Make a Splash" Photo Challenge

After a few days of rain, we woke up to this amazing sunny day and headed to the water park! Just in time for I Heart Faces latest photo challenge: Make a Splash. I love these challenges - normally I would never take my camera anywhere involving water (way too protective of my dear camera) - but I'm so glad I did, and that I got to capture some fun moments!  

See more photos from our water park day here!:

Sister Time.

The countdown begins...
Sawyer and I have been staying with my dad and sisters while Chris has been away.
With less than a month to go, I'm going to miss these gorgeous girls!

Here's a little "sister shoot" we did earlier this summer. So much sugar, sun and silliness.

Happy Canada Day!

As we get ready to move, I'm realizing that this will be our last Canada Day at Waterfront Park! 
All my favourite July 1st celebrations have been here, and I'm happy that Sawyer is old enough to enjoy it too. Happy Birthday Canada!

"All Boy" Photo Challenge

With Father's Day approaching, I wanted to post these pictures of Sawyer and his dad from their visit on Easter weekend. We can't wait to see him graduate from Depot in August. Father's Day won't be the same without him here!

I'm entering this shot in #iHeartFaces "All Boy" photo challenge this week! I love the father/son bond these two have, and am so proud of how well they have both handled these last few months apart.

Rainy Day Craft Corner

After finishing Sawyer's table and chairs, I got to (finally) set up his rainy day craft corner! Everything was re-purposed from around the house, so we didn't have to spend a dime. I used free printables from Mr. Printables for his flash cards and "Rain, Rain Go Away" poster.
I'll be switching out the flash cards for a new letter, number and shape for us to focus on each month.
More pictures to come, I just need a sunnier day to take them! We will be making great use of our corner this week if the forecast is right. :)
