Always something to see or do at the farm. Papa has some new calves and took the girls to the barn to see them today. This little guy is pretty quiet and cute, they sure enjoyed petting him, although Emm wasn't too sure about it Ely thought it was great.

Big Prairie Sky.... We had a long road trip today from Grande Prairie all the way to Grandmas house at Big Valley. We left early at 9am and arrived at Grandmas house in time for supper. The sky was grey and cloudy when we left and this is how it looked a few hours later at Camrose. Sure was a nice drive, long but nice.

PUDDLES!! Finally we have WARM weather and the Melt is ON!!! Our cul-de-sac is one giant puddle and the girls and I had a FUN time jumping and splashing in them today. I mean WHO can resist a puddle??
UH-OH looks like these boots just aren't tall enough!! (not quite as clear as I was hoping for)
A close up of these FUN puddles.

Meet my new buddy Kobey Boon, he's a cutie patutie for sure!! Sure wish we had met him and his parents before now!!! They are great people and my girls sure do love to play with this cutie pie. His Mom and I decided we shouldn't waste a day of sunshine so we took all the kids on a walk to the park.

Looks like Morris is taking in the sunshine today too!! He looks quite friendly as I pulled up pretty close to him and he never even stirred. Just looked at me like "lady what the heck are ya doing!"
Looks like he's got a bit of an "owee" on his back end.
My husband is an avid hunter and outdoorsman and he must be rubbing off on me cause I was soo excited to see Morris again. I'm continually bugging him for taking pics of the moose, deer and elk he sees when hunting cause they always look the same to me. Guess I can't bugg him anymore! LOL.

Mr. Buster-Custard is pretty interested in the print on my rocking chair, either that or he's ignoring me. I was never really a cat lover (or liker) until my daughter fell in love with this grey kitten our neighbour was trying to get rid of. Now 2yrs later here I am taking photos of him. LOL Guess I like him now.

Hello Fog!! Just beyond these trees is a nice park that we usually can see from our back deck, however not such a clear view this morning. Thankfully the fog lifted as Mr. Sun came out to shine on us. It's still chilly out but it's better than being -15.
Some frost hanging out with my planters that are patiently waiting for spring.

"Surprise Mom" My 5yr old shouted. I wandered into the kitchen and this is what I saw, 3 bowls, 3 cups, 3 spoons all set out. She was making breakfast for the 3 of us. She made my heart sing when I saw what she was doing. Her sister joined her on the chair and wanted to help too. It was by far the best breakfast I've had in a long time. LOL

Looks really can be deceiving, her hand looks so tiny and delicate when really it's just the opposite. They are tiny yes but full of strength and courage. Not so long ago they were very very very tiny, at 1lb 2oz these hands have come along way in 4yrs time.

Officially it's Spring, or at least that what the calendar says! Not so much up here in Grande Prairie. We woke up to an overcast sky, frost on everything and still a snow covered ground. A couple of hours later it started snowing and has yet to stop. Someone has made Mother Nature upset and I sure wish they would apologize to her!!!
Mmmm Banana Muffins!! I enjoy baking goodies and trying out new recipes. A friend gave me a new recipe for banana bread and I made it into muffins and they are very YUMMY! I was looking for a new photo to add to my journey and these looked quite appealing.
Meet my dog Sam, or better known as Mr. Attitude! He's a typical small dog that likes to bark at anything and everything. He loves to cuddle and sleep with whomever will let him on their bed or lap. I'm not really sure he listens to anyone at all. I love him anyway though.

The day started out promising, a bit on the cooler side but still pretty nice for March or so I thought. By afternoon the wind had picked up and the clouds covered the sky and as I post this its early evening and alas SNOWING AGAIN!!! UGGGG. I'll be soooo happy when SPRING finally gets here!!!

On our drive home tonight from Edmonton to Grande Prairie we had made a pitt stop at Valleyview. The sun was just setting and it looked so pretty and peaceful so I pulled onto a service road and took a couple of photos. I always seem to be busy putting kids to bed when it's sunset time but tonight I took the time to watch!
These four men stand tall and proud in a very serene and peaceful park. You don't seem to notice the hwy full of trucks and cars rushing by. I was filled with mixed emotions as I walked around these men clicking away with my camera. I felt like I should be quiet and respectful almost like permission should be asked for taking the photos.

We were on our way home today and just wandering alongside the road was this fella/lady (I've no idea which). After a quick run home to grab my camera we drove over to take a closer look. We almost missed it cause he's walking back into the bushes. My youngest wanted to get her gun and the oldest said NO. LOL I think we've got another hunter in the family.
