A Trip home

As soon as Dick finished exams we thought it was time for a little visit home to Lethbridge. Everytime we go home, we're spoiled non-stop. Accommodations in my parents spacious air-conditioned basement suite, are even nicer than home. My mom cooks delicous food, entertains, babysits, and still works and takes care of Dad on top of it all. Thanks mom!!

Ozzie was beyond excited to sit in the drivers seat!

We all had a great time! Greta and Ozzie got to spend time with her cousins Kaiya, Jager and Cooper and Uncle Geoff and Auntie Nicki who they love very much, and they even threw another Birthday party for Greta! (Thanks Guys!!) there was yummy food, and cupcakes and and presents and Helium baloons (that Greta is still mourning the loss of) it was so nice to be together for a celebration for once, it seems like we always miss everyones birthdays and long weekends etc.

its not a party until everyone's wearing a party hat!

Even Cooper and Ozzie got in on the action

**Side note...will SOMEONE please tell me how to do multiple pictures on this thing?...i'm totally annoyed with uploading one at a time***

And Nicki made delicious rainbow bit cupcakes(greta's fave) that we all devoured!

The weather was insanely gorgeous for June in Lethbridge...and NO WIND! it was heaven. so we spent most of the days outside chillin in my Bro's super nice backyard...Greta kept asking "Mommy are we having summer?" cause she didn't know what was up the whole swimsuit/lemonade/water balloons in the backyard action. good times..i loved it!

Ozzie loved it too...he even ate his first fistfull of grass.

The kids loved throwing balloons at "Uncle Dick" even Greta was calling him that. Jager was there too...he must have been busy digging in the mud with a sword at the time:)

We took a few pics after church with grandma..I put this one up cause My Mom looks great as always...but also cause the kids faces were too get this over with. Greta looks weird.

Anyways, it was a great trip! Dick got to relax and get killed by Geoff in golf, and the kids got to play and we even got to go on a date! Greta snuggled with Grandpa on his bed and watched shows just about everyday while he sneakily gave her nibs the whole time. She could not have been happier. Actually, she cried on 3 separate occasions on the eay home because she missed Grandma and Grandpa so much! awwww.
I love summer, and cant wait to visit again in July! but seriously i'm tired of this long way to post pics.. HELP!
