Powow Pictures

Last weekend, we all went to a Powwow in Flatbay.  The drive was really pretty with water and forest views.

We watched dancing.  J loved it so much, he couldn't take his off of the dancers.
He asked to come back next year.

Same Chair

My mom kept the rocking chair I had when I was little.  Thirty years later, Ri loves the same chair.  After seeing a picture of me in the rocking chair.  I thought it would be cute to take a picture of Ri in the same chair.
Here is a picture of me taken when I was about 2 1/2 to 3 years old. 
Here is a picture of Ri at age 3 1/2 in the same rocking chair!
Another  One
Not wanting J to feel left out.  I took these pictures of him. 

 Maybe this will become a tradition, pictures on the deck at my parent's place.

Been a Bad Blogger

I have been a bad blogger, I haven't blogged in a while.  We are still in Newfoundland.  We have been spending time with Met and Poppa and doing little outings.  It is nice for the kids to spend time with my parents.  Being in Newfoundland, we don't get to see them as often as we would like.

This has been the longest time that me and Terry have been a part in twelve years of marriage.  Once Terry went away for work when J was a 1 year and that was only a week.  We are looking forward to seeing each other again. 

Last week, I needed more insulin.  When packing I took an open box with a few pens used instead of taking a full unopened box.  Luckily I went the day before the I needed the insulin because they had to order in the insulin.  There was none in the area.  My sugars have been ok and now I am on four needles a da

As our Newfoundland vacation is coming to an end, I am hoping to have a few more long baths and a few more naps. 

Nine weeks til due date.

Scripture Love

1 Samuel 16:7
 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Luke 12:3
What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.

American Signs

As mentioned in a previous post, Stephenville is known for having an American Air Force base from the early 40s to mid 60s. 

On 'Base' where the Americans lived and worked, all the roads were (and continue to be) named after a State in the USA. 

Here are some of them

Time with Family

Yesterday the kids spent the morning and the afternoon playing in the water, the sprinkler and the pool.  J loves the water so much, he would stick his head in and try to swim around the small pool.

After supper, me and the kids went to my brothers house.  He and his wife had their first baby in May, a boy.  He is adorable.  He is such a joy to hold.  I just waned to hold and look at him.  It is nice to have another thing in common with my brother and sister in law.  My brother and I are eight years a part.  Now that we are older, married, have kids, the gap of the age difference feels much less. 

Today we were going to go to the playground, but it started to rain.  Instead Met took us to Dollarama where the kids picked out a toy, pirate things for J and pompoms for Ri. 

After Dollarama, it had stopped raining.  Met dropped me off at my sil's house and Met took the kids to the play ground.  I got to hold the new baby and feed him, it was nice.  About two hours later Met and the kids showed up.  J and Ri love hanging out with their aunt, uncle and cousin. 

Holding my little nephew, makes me even more excited to hold our little one.  Less than 11 weeks til the due date.

Today in Newfoundland, we

It is Wednesday evening.  It has been a hot day, 29 with a feel like of 34.  It was our first sunny and hot day since we landed Saturday night.  This afternoon Met took us to Canadian Tire and bought the kids a small pool and a sprinkler.  The kids had so much fun running around in the water and splashing in the water.  One thing about renting, we normally don't have space for a sprinkler or a pool. So, this was extra special for them.

 This morning, I got sick.  Twice so far this week.  Thankfully it didn't last through out the day.  I am one of the lucky pregnant ladies whose morning sickness/nausea last through out the whole pregnancy. 

After breakfast, we went to a place called 'Little Port Harmon'.  It is down by the ocean, same road as the golf course.  At the end of the road is a small harbour.  We walked around an old camp ground, once called 'Indian Head Park', near the golf course.  We didn't walk around all of it, it was hot and we started getting hungry.

Earlier this week, there were grey skies and rain showers.  We went to the library and had a fire on the deck.  I'll post pictures of the library in another post.  It is so great for kids!
