Welcome to my blog. Here I have tried to capture the adventures of our little family and the trials and tribulations of our never ending garden project(s). Take a look around and leave a comment if you wish. Thanks for stopping by. Jer.


Chilly Corn Roast

Our friend Frank held his annual Corn Roast last night. It was the first year we have been able to make it, usually we already have plans every weekend of the summer. It was a great time, despite the Octoberish weather, and I cannot believe how many folks showed up. There were 5 (or 6?) bands throughout the night that kept us entertained and lots of great food. We will definitely be back.

The crowd

Lots of corn for everyone

Good tunes. One family band of a father and sons played some great Blue Rodeo covers; the oldest son was spot on for Greg Keelor.

Party time!

Nina's cousin in Kitchener was married yesterday. I can't believe how young they looked, I also can't believe that was us 12 years ago...hopefully we didn't look quite so young. Unfortunately we couldn't make it to the ceremony but the kids sure enjoyed the reception...little dance machines definitely don't take after their dad.

The happy couple

First a little din-din and some fancy juice and then it's time to....

Jump around!!! (look closely, he is actually getting air)

LOVE SHACK BABY!!! (Classic wedding tune)


The day that summer arrived...

Well, well, well, look who decided to show! After the longest spring on record, summer showed up on the first weekend in August.
We took advantage of the nice weather and spent the day at the splash pad with the kidlets and then flew the kite for a while. Good times.

My head apparently makes an excellent snare drum for Isaac.
