Insta-Friday in real life

Happy Friday everybody! Hope you had a great week.

I am once again sharing a few of our cell phone pics from the week.

This week has been relatively uneventful. I guess the major story around here (as with many places) has been the weather.

We have had a few unseasonably warm days, one of which seemed more like a day in July. It has been enjoyable and scary at the same time.

I guess the week wasn’t so uneventful in my daughter’s eyes, as you can see from this photo of her at the dentist. She was not too happy, and for good reason I think.

See how her fingers are crossed? I wonder what she was saying to herself?

But things picked up for her. Here she is enjoying some time at the park.

Here she is with brother on the bike ride to the park.

My daughter also persuaded me to buy her a build-a-bear kit this week. Turns out, the work was all mine. Thankfully, it is sewing for dummies, because that is about my level of skill.

I now have one more creature to babysit while my daughter is at school. I have to give them regular snacks and report back to their mommy at the end of the day.

The kids wanted spaghetti tacos this week. Something they saw on iCarly. Does anybody else think this show is getting a little steamy for the kids?

We thought we would try a fire bowl in our yard this year. Hopefully nobody calls the fire department. It happened at my sister’s house. Probably shouldn’t have played Mony Mony that third time. I think we irritated some neighbours. Anyway, my daughter helped my husband put the thing together. Here she is reading the instructions, or “constructions” as my son used to call them.

Jolene is enjoying the warm days, hanging out on the back deck in whatever beam of sunshine she can find. Today it’s raining, so she is sleeping in front of the fireplace. The warmer the better for this dog.

life rearranged


  1. such a sweet life! the spaghetti taco....i don't know about that one :) thanks for linking up!


    1. I don't blame you for doubting the spaghetti taco. I didn't really enjoy it. But, the kids did.

  2. Your family, including Candy Love, look so sweet! My 9 year old watches ICarly, I haven't really been paying attention but the next time it's on I'll check it out to see if it's getting weird. Seems like you had a peaceful week. :)

    Is Jolene a hound?

    1. I guess as Carly and the gang are getting older, they are covering more teen issues. But, my kids are only 7 and 9. Not that it's the worst show they have seen! Jolene is part beagle. The people we got her from thought also Brittany Spaniel, but we're not sure. She has a funny voice and she tries to talk to us a lot. I guess that's the beagle.
