Inside our Hive

The other day Daddy donned his bee suit (or Space suit as we call it;) and took all us kiddo's down to look inside the hive to see if the Queen was there!!
smoking the hive!Charlie was a brave one! He let the bees crawl all over him and they never stung him! the little creatures

A mishapped comb

Our "Ba-Zoo" trip

Last week while we had Bret and Ronald Mama decided to take us to Noah's Ark for a picnic lunch and a stroll around! Noah's Ark is a donation run shelter for animal's. Yuchi heard we were going and decided to inform all the others about it so he said "We're going to the Ba-Zoo!!! We're going to the Ba-Zoo!" What a cutie;) It kinda stuck and even Wallace was calling it that!
Well, we got right in the middle of the park and it started pouring! We thought we'd just wait it out but after getting thoroughly drenched we headed back to the truck! As soon as the rain let up the Antonions and their friends the M.'s showed up! What fun! We decided to try another walk around. We got a bit further this time when it started raining again! Ah! Completely soaked and a bit annoyed we just went home after that;)

A Bit O' Summer

Hello! Hope every one's Summer's are going alright!
Our's has been absolutley wonderful!
Daddy built us an outdoor kitchen at the beginning of Spring! You can cook almost anything you want, even biscuits, if you don't mind them burned a bit on the bottom;)
We've done quite a bit of camping lately. It's been so much fun! I love sitting around the fire with my family, talking or reading and singing! I won't say much about the times when our bedding got soaked or we didn't have any clean clothes for Sunday, or when someone tried to teach us how to start a fire with a stick and shoelace;) yeah, that should've worked, but, it didn't. Oh, well, it wouldn't be real camping without all this plus the bugs, smoke and dirt! It's been quite an experience! Ah, interesting times!
I was able to get a few pictures of Joey and Rach a couple of weekends ago!! She is doing well and her house is coming along nicely! Joe had a fever while we were there though, poor darling.

We are keeping Bret and Ron this week while A-n-K (aka Alan and Katie) are gone to Arizona with a load of wood! They are such cuties (the little boys, I mean) Maud did the most adorable photo shoot of them:)

To end my post I have pictures of us girlies riding Go Carts at the C.'s from Sunday!! It was very fun and very bumby!
Hope y'all enjoy 'em!

Wha-la! La Cocina!! Didn't Daddy do a good job?!He just built this Saturday! The joys of camping;) no sarcasm intended!What fun nephews are!!

Mother and Peach with Peachy's pretty blue walls in the background! Daddy with Joe-Joe
