Summer Time and the Livin's Easy

My blog will likely remain in it's currently neglected state.  I do feel bad every time I fail to write an entry for the week.  But with the advent of summer, I will have no more preschool breaks, nor do I get any nap times.  I have a huge list of priorities... which mainly include keeping up with our garden, and regularly exercising my four-year-old boy. 

I also have plans to keep up with my writing.  My first novel has undergone five drafts, and is currently being critiqued.  So I am busy plotting and outlining my next novel.  Though where I will find the time to work on it still remains a mystery.

Meanwhile, we have been celebrating a fourth Birthday.  It could have been a disaster... having 6 kids over for a party on a rainy day.  Luckily, it was clear for the first half an hour, so everyone worked out their excitement by running around in our (and our neighbours') backyard.  (It was a Castle-Themed party.)
And I made a not diet friendly cake.  It's meant to look like a castle... so ignore the fact that it looks more like a Mosque!  I did it myself... and I am proud Non-perfectionist! 
However, Nikolai is still on a Sulfite and Sucrose free diet... so his actual birthday cake was much less exciting. (Note to self: I need to schedule a follow up visit with the allergist).  The diet definitely works.  And going off the diet is definitely BAD.  However, it seems like cheating occasionally is not really that bad. 

And here's a picture of Nikolai appreciating some of his gifts.  The red cowboy boots are from an Uncle in Wyoming. Wearing them made Nikolai so cool that he didn't have time to pose for a picture!

Lastly, a picture of Nikolai and I at the Tour de Victoria festival this past weekend.  I swear, there is ALWAYS something fun to do around here!  I'm sure we'll have a big city-wide party when Ryder Hesjedal finally comes home after the summer Olympics. We are definitely all excited for the Tour de France. Brad always is keen on following these races, so it's nice to have a hometown hero to support!
