Summer Rain

A hot, do nothing day gave way to a play-in-the-rain/ orange sky night...

This wasn't work - this is how we go check on bird nests:

RU Fun lost and found

Here's a collection, documented by Effie, of some of the things left behind at our house recently. The majority of these items most likely belong to the Parksvillians (they're like that), but just in case they look familiar to anyone...


Another sword

Charger thingy (for iPhone?)

Nunchucks (Batman)

Sandals (Steven?)


Deer skull

Half a freezie


Shower products (from RU Fun 2008)

RU Fun :: most likely the only gathering on the planet that combines jello pudding, swords, nunchucks and deer skulls.

Fun with Chicagweigians

Rachel and co. are spending a post RU Fun week with us... the first few days they got to clean the house but after that it has been a steady stream of beach visits - including a late night/ starlit/ naked (one of us) swim in the lake - as well as a downtown adventure day. Effie is determined to make every second count despite the fact that what she probably needs most right now is a day spent under the covers.

Cheap car wash labour...

At the bug zoo with a strange lady giving Otto major laser-eyes-of-doom...

Dirt, Food n' Fun

Meah's shown here modeling our former premier landscaping feature - dirt. Now it all pretty much resides in the house. And on our feet.

Food for 40-50 odd people has required some higher math and, at times, some serious negotiating (ie: ring pops):

The fun continues to spill over...
