Sunday Dinner

I spend all kinds of time in the woods around the area and never found these on my own. Step son # 1 wanders out for the first time and brings us back a pound! Great Sunday Dinner.


Practicing for the Big Race on Saturday

We got it!, originally uploaded by Allegromouse.

This cart has seen a number of cousins venture down Talbot Street in Port McNicoll. This weekend, Hannah believes it is her turn to race the family go-cart down the hill.
I have to hurry up and sew that bublle wrap suit and only have two days to compelte it!

…formally known as “The CowTippin’Idiots

We started caching 4 years ago when my daughter was two. We were a team/cast of 5. Three have since moved on to either get their own accounts or not cache at all anymore (I know…who does that?)

Now that my daughter is 6, literate and quite linguistically aware, she has decided to take offense at our team name and would like to be known otherwise, although my husband gave us this name with all the best intentions; when he first saw that we were heading out to find tupperware in the woods in Vasey at night during the first snowfall of the year, he said, “What are you Cow tippin’ idiots up to now?” Our team name was born.

My daughter has been with me on 95% of the cache finds. We have most likely eaten collectively more than 100 peanut butter sandwiches in the car on cache-runs, my daughter has laid down on almost every trail in the Simcoe County Forest Series and refused another step, she yelled out “Do it again” when we got mud on the inside roof our Suzuki, because mom made a wrong turn and forgot to close the windows before sinking in the mud and my daughter was potty trained in our bathroom and in the forests of Huronia.

Unfortunately my daughter no longer likes our team name and hasn’t for some time. I will have to move on with my own account and once she finds her own geocaching identity we will write logs of her own.  My daughter is still with me on the cache hunts.  We still bring random people along on these trips,  but the Cow Tippin’ Idiots are no more…

We never win anything!

It's almost just like Christmas.

This time we did! We were the lucky winners of Erika Jean’s Blog contest! How cool is that.
Hannah was very excited to pick this up at the mail box tonight.
