Peas & Thanks :)

Image             So we went out to check on the garden today and BAM!! Peas were grown. Say Whaaaat?? Oh yes,PEAS!! Not all but some, which makes me excited, that we actually grew something. Shaylyn, who doesn’t like peas,she did when she was a baby BUT somebody feed her green beans which she hated and has never been a fan of peas ever since, I think she gets the two confused. 

Image           So Shaylyn gets super excited and starts picking them,which not all of them were ready for harvesting,but I understand her excitement. I guess these ones werent scarey for her since we grew them. So she keeps asking to open one and wants to see what they look like but we kept telling her to hold on. Well I guess her curiosity got the best of her because it was long before I hear a little popping sound and shes popping peas out of the pods and eating them. Ummm what happened to her dislike of peas?? 

Image      After eating raw peas fresh from the garden,which Shay said tasted good cause they were sweet, she tells me to bring some back to the campsite to cook them,so I did. I’m pretty proud of our little garden and next year I am going to plant a bigger one. We had our fresh peas with supper and they were pretty good and totally pesticide free 🙂 Yay!!

Summer Lovin, Had Me A Blast


 So we’ve been spending our summer days basically how the song Toes goes I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand Life is good today. Life is good today. Been Zoo trippin it up with Shay Shay, had a PEI visit to see some of her cousins and basically spent the rest of summer out Hardings Point Campground. She has little friends that come out for sleep overs, we’ve been watching ALOT of Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. Throwback Thursday Movie Nights which basically means we watch a movie from my childhood, which is interesting to see how emotional she gets over certain movies.  It must be a girl thing cause all the ones I cry at or have cried at so does she hahaha. Bridge To Terabithia and The Odd Life of Timothy Green made her cry, The Goonies scared her until the end. She loves anything with the Olsen Twins in it. We went to my Aunt and Uncle’s trailer in St.Andrews to have a fam jam BBQ. Today, we discovered that Shay and the guy that owns the trailer next to us are related. Cool beans. 


She’s loving all the time she gets in the pool


And all her sleep overs

Bears In The Garden

So Miss Shaylyn & I started a garden, and this time we’ve actually remembered to take care of it lol. Anyways we planted carrots,peas,potatoes,turnips & strawberries. The only thing that hasn’t sprouted we’re the berries. Ever since we started the garden, I’ve noticed more wildlife. I mean, sure there’s always wildlife but there’s been more sightings now instead of the occassional woodpecker. We’ve caught snapping turtles, salamanders, frogs, released em all of course after a photoshoot but still, and they are always found near the garden. So the other day I went out to water it, and noticed something wrong in the potatoes and turnips, thinking somebody was being inconsiderate and trampled threw Shay’s garden, I started to get upset. Then I took a closer look. Paw prints. Big ol black bear paw prints. I cant really cuss a bear out now can I? Since the garden is on Neil’s Gramp’s land, beside a brook and full of apple trees, its like the perfect spot for a bear… here’s hoping the nosey furball stays out of it. x-Fingers Crossed-x Oh Summers in New Brunswick

So our trips to the cottage are about to come to an end and this makes me sad.
This was mine and Neil’s home away from home and many great memories were made here this past summer.I a
m here right now actually watching Family Guy while Neil snores away in the next room.We have had good memories with
Brandan, Tyler,Mim,Elliott,Shaylyn,Neil’s parents and The Arsenaults.
Plus lots and lots of beautiful pictures of our time together and Summer 2010.
There has been lots of laughs here,some tears,fireworks,beer and swimming.
All of Neil’s Uncle Jack’s plants are dying,the nights longer and colder,
and the loons seem louder for some reason.Lots of movies were watched here and
there were plenty of cuddles. I sound totally foolish right now but I can’t help
it I am gonna miss our random trips out here. Summer 2010 you will be missed.
