Strawberry Picking and Screen Time

I thought strawberry picking season was over because our favourite strawberry farm announced on facebook early last week that they were closing for the season. However, a friend on facebook posted yesterday that there were still some places open and so I dragged my helpers out for a morning of picking:

I picked three of these in the time that it took each of them to pick 1:

We went to watch "The fault in our stars" in the afternoon:

Then picked up this new release to watch later:

oh and school supplies were being set out-yikes!

Beach Day

After church, we headed to the beach for the afternoon. We soaked up some rays:

built  a sand castle:

cheered for the warm weather:

took some selfies:

then cashed in some $2 treat receipts from this morning. (I'm lucky to have generous Grade 1 friends and have not had to pay for many starbucks treats over the last 5 years):

and then we had Menchie's for supper. Yup...we really did.

Color Me Rad!

This was supposed to me my 3rd running event of 2014 but instead it's my first. The run is 5K and during the race you pass colour bomb stations that blast you with coloured powder. Kiandra and Kaden joined me for the run and Kezia came as the photographer. 

Before the run:

At the starting line:

Kaden pulled ahead early in the run and was the first to cross the finish line:

I was next:

 and then Kiandra

After the race we opened our colour bombs at the finish line:

(I think Kaden is catching up to Kiandra in height!)



and Kaden:

We met our friends at the finish line and posed for some pictures:

A fun RAD!

With the kids finishing up a week at camp, I wanted to try and get some more painting done at the rental house. Today, I finished a second coat on almost all of the doors. This is what the front door looked like last week after Kezia painted all of the green trim white:

...and what it looks like now:

I did the first coat on the new closet doors:

and the little closet door from one of the upstairs bedrooms:

Those big closet doors will eventually live here:

with the washing machine and dryer inside. I also painted a second coat in the bathroom on the door and on the vanity:

Conrad and Kaden patched the kitchen yesterday:

But there is still a big "to-do" list in the rec room...wood for the flooring, flooring, and that pile of boxes is going to be the new kitchen....
