Bear Hunt Picnic

We're going on a bear hunt.
We're going to catch a big one
What a beautiful day!
We're not scared
We are blessed to live 500 feet from "the woods"
We went on a bear hunt/picnic. Each of the story parts were
represented in food on our picnic.
Uh-oh Grass!
Long, wavy grass.
We can't go over it
We can't go under it
Oh, no!
We've got to go through it!
Uh-Oh! A River!
A deep, cold river.
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
Oh no we have to go through it.
(capri sun)
Oh-oh! Mud!
Thick, oozy mud.
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
We've got to go through it!
(chocolate pudding)
Oh-Oh! A forest!
A big, dark forest!
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
We've got to go through it!
(pretzel sticks)

Oh-oh! A Snowstorm!
A swirling, whirling snowstorm.
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
We've got to go through it!
(mini marshmallows)

Oh-oh! A cave!
A narrow, gloomy cave.
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
We've got to go through it!

One shiny wet nose!
Two big furry ears!
Two big googly eyes!
IT'S A BEAR!!!!!
(gummy bears/ teddy grahams)

(as long as we catch the sweet, sugary bears)

Splish Splash

Rub a dub dub
A girl in the tub,
Splishing and Splashing with glee.
 She's scrubbed and She's rubbed
and she's played in the tub,
And now she's as clean as can be !

Farm Sitting

Lilian was elated when our friends asked her to "farm sit" while they went on vacation for 2 weeks and then again for a week when they went camping. She just adores farm animals and was in pure heaven taking care of 2 dozen chickens, 2 turkeys, 6 ducks, a cow, a horse, 3 pigs, 2 goats, and dog.
( of course the other littles had to tag along and help spread a little attention to all the animals)

It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!  ~Author Unknown

A brother shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.  ~Author Unknown

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.  ~Marc Brown

Fishing at Fernan

Taking 6 littles fishing is a bit like a 3-ring circus
There are never 6 poles in the water
Usually 2 are tangled together, one is hooked to a rock on the bottom of the lake, one is screaming with excitement because they have a fish on and need help, while the others are jumping in the water scaring all the fish and another is dumping all the bait on the ground. Yep, fishing is sure relaxing.
 Miss India definitely has the most patience and endurance
when it comes to fishing. She caught the first and most fish.

 This one gets the most excited when he catches one
Insists on taking it home and eating it all by himself for dinner

 This one just needs to stop growing up
Just love this big brother-

Flower Girl

India was delighted to particiapte in her Cousin Samuel and his new wife Danielle's wedding. Being a flower girl is one of life's enchanting moments for a little girl-

Dads are a Treas-ARRR

My sweet hubby and my daddy truly are treasures. So grateful to have each of these amazing men in my life. We celebrated them with a pirate twist for Father's Day

Breakfast was donut holes- cannon balls in bed

 Dad had to follow a treasure map to find
his Father's Day gift
