Just a shout out to family and friends to say that we are still awaiting little "chick pea" (sex unknown). Robin is pushing 38 weeks and READY to go! We have been walking, jogging, hauling wood and other activities that are supposed to bring on labor. There is a betting pool up here on the lake and Dave has picked Monday, September 1st...LABOR DAY! We will see! Hope everyone is doing well. Will keep folks posted as soon as we have any news.

Catherine enjoys quality time with cousin Camile! After riding home from Coach and Mimi's house on the Sea-doo, Camile helps Catherine get into some warm, dry clothes. Camile helps Catherine with her ABC's. It shows because Catherine is quite the talker now...speaking in complete sentences!
We had a cold and blustery day on Lake Temagami (high of 60 F and rainy) today and Catherine decided to build and run a restaurant. She invited all of her friends as special guests; Dora, Charlie and Baby. Catherine took a break from running the business to eat a quick lunch. The fiesta napkins are leftover from cousin Christopher's birthday party recently. The 4th of July plate was a gift from Mamoo. Dora was a gift from Aunt Blair and Uncle Rob.
My dad and I attended the annual Ducks Unlimited fundraiser dinner in Temagami. We had a great dinner and participated in several of the raffles. We won a small camoflage chair and ottoman for Catherine that fits her perfectly. When the auctioneer called out our winning ticket number the arena was suddenly quiet at just the moment I screamed in excitement! I was obviously ready to pop in my pink maternity dress, so it was hilarious when, right after my scream, a friend at our table called out "Is there a doctor in the house?!"
Catherine and I attended the Blueberry Festival in the town of Temagami on a beautiful Saturday recently. We enjoyed a pancake breakfast and browsing at some of the tables with local artisans.
