From the rising of the sun to its going down
the Lord's name is to be praised!

Do you Feel Sorry for Me?
If you know this girlie, then there is no explanation needed...:O)
But let's have fun explaining anyway...
  1.  She's her Father's daughter
  2. She is crazy!
  3.   It's normal to stand on trucks

And just so you know, she wasn't just standing on the truck-she was jumping.
My Lovie
Brouwer's Line
A peek at our new property on Brouwer's Line!  We have no real plan for when we will officially move here-we are still working on getting ready to sell our current home.

This is the veiw from the road.

 Standing on the hill in the back yard
 The two hills (or mountains as Jude calls them!)
 We had a fresh basket of books from the library-ready to be read after a picnic lunch but Brie decided to be grumpy so we went for a walk instead.
 Took the girls for a picnic just to get out of the house.

 Joel cutting the grass for us...not our lawn tractor.
Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk!
Apparently the bottle liner was not in properly...this happened as we were getting ready to leave for a campfire-Murphy's Law   :O)

Sandwiches on the Counter-because that's just fun. :O)

Chips n' Salsa
The girls often play 'restaurant'. When I bring them the food they are usually chatting with each other about how their Mom is the 'resaurant lady'. I pretend not to hear their conversation so that they keep chatting because it is very fun to listen in!

Tim Horton's cups are favorite toy around here.

The Bahamas...March 2011
Dan and I went to the Bahamas in March. We went to the same place in the Bahama's a few years ago with Taun and Rob and our respective families. It was such a refreshing trip and I am so thankful that Dan's Mom and Dad were willing to take our crew of ladies for a week!
I started reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp the first day we arrived (or maybe even on the flight there...)  This book is amazing but every sentence is a work of art and a meal to digest so I could not finish it on a holiday. 
 The view of our island (Spanish Wells) from the ferry that we took to Harbour Island.
 We used bikes to tour Harbour Island like a good Dutch couple should!  It was a blast!!!
 Just the view from the restaurant that we ate at...:O)  Can you imagine!!!
  While we were touring a funeral procession went by-it was more like a parade with dancing and a band!  The man leading the procession held a stick and he poked people who didn't move along properly.
Dan fishing from a boat that we had access to.  There were no life jackets or a paddle on board...we mentioned this to a local and she laughed at us and said "all you need is a pair of 'flippas' " -Apparently if you have engine trouble and get stuck in the middle of now where (which we did) all you need is a pair of flippers to use while you swim and push your boat to shore...We ended up sitting in the blistering sun on the open ocean for about an hour and finally another boat came past.  Just as they were about to pull us to shore our engine decided to work again.
Golf cart to get around the island...
Morning beauty...normally I do not get up early but I was sick so instead of trying to sleep I grabbed the camera and tried to catch the sunrise...
On our last day there a fellow Canadian (from Quebec) caught a Lemon the beach we had been swimming at...not to worry though-it was only his third shark in about four days and Lemon Sharks are harmless.  I did not know that there were 'safe' sharks out there...did you?!  I will not believe it!
Dan and Don posing with sharkie while I panicked.
Oh, yes, friendly indeed!
Now there's a happy shark face!

 The End...and Sharkie did not eat us or these pics would not be here! :O)
