Lucky #3

This is my "sorry that I haven't been blogging more but this is why" post.  We are due with #3 in February! Yes, that's right, another February baby, the girls will be 5 and 7 that month. 

I'll admit that I'm a bit apprehensive about that big gap and starting all over with a new baby, but I must confess it's nice to have kids that are old enough to watch a movie by themselves for an hour while I have a nap.

When I was pregnant with A, I dodged the camera so successfully that I only have one photo of myself for the whole nine months.  I was just so unhappy with how I looked.  I don't have time for that nonsense this time around. Yes, thanks to two previous pregnancies, I have a diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia, giving me the super power of looking twice as pregnant as I am. But this is me, and this is my family, and there is always beauty in these moments. I think that's meant to be a pep talk. Don't hide from the camera, mamas! (although learning to take a good selfie so that you can throw out the unflattering photos is a great survival skill. I took all these myself with the timer and tripod)
In other news, our giant plum tree is in full swing. I realized that I had a ton of homemade plum sauce left in the basement still, and that my energy is limited, so I helped a friend pick a box of plums so that I didn't have to feel guilty about them.

But that still left lots for my little foragers to find.
And that's us. How has your summer been going? I can't believe ours is half over already.

Todd + Stephanie


We were dodging rain showers, fat slugs, and a million bugs but seriously, is there anything more fun than a wedding in the forest?

The Spring Farm Fair



We had a Spring Farm Fair at Pass Creek in May and it was such a great event. I think we might have spent two hours snuggling bunnies and chicks. I dragged them away to buy some plants and then it was back to the baby animals. Sunny didn't even want to leave them to have lunch. Eventually they were convinced to have a carriage ride with their buddies. They all fell in love with Hero the horse.I hope this becomes and annual event!

A little bit of May

I'm catching up on my May photos (I know, I'm the slowest, but you can always follow me on instagram for more timely photos!).


My parents came for dinner and musical shenanigans ensued. I can't even begin to tell you how happy this photo makes me.

My little invasive species. And a circus performance by my two favourite sets of sisters.



Treasures from the garden.

That's not even all for May, more to come soon :)
