Love those blueberry-stained cheeks! A wonderful tradition. Two posts! Are you back? HOpe so!


So nice to 'hear' from you. You've inspired me to go picking so maybe we'll run into each other (sunny sunday hmmm!)

...been meaning to drop you a note to tell you - SO - we were flying back from Toronto this summer, and with Reid busy beside me I was flipping swiftly through the channels and, caught sight of some kid who looked familiar so flipped back a few. GUESS who I spot oh-so-randomly? YOU and your kids on the Calgary, singing the praises of comfort camping.

So random, so funny!

(you looked fantastic for a lady out in the bush with 4 children!)



(... oh and that should say "on the Calgary local news") xo.

Oh that is too funny! The kids were thrilled; being on TV topped all of their wildlife sightings.

As for me, I was thanking my lucky stars I listened to the little voice that morning saying that yes, even though we were leaving that day, I should make the effort to shower :)
