England Pictures... finally!

Sorry this has taken so long. I found that I'm still struggling to get back into my routine, and I can't blame jetlag anymore. So finally got the pictures together. We'll call this a sprinkling of my pictures taken. Enjoy the sprinkles.

My little Enoch....

It's a happy birthday to our little Enoch. He's one year old today and currently climbing through the open suitcases for Clark and my trip to England. He's been our best baby: patient and happy and quite tough, dealing with 3 older siblings. He's currently attached to my plastic slotted spoon which he carries around all of the time and sweeping/vacuuming the house. (I'll take it!) He was born at 4:20am at 9lbs 15oz. He wins on the Schow side for heaviest baby and came the last day Clark's sisters were visiting, so they got to see him. So happy birthday Enoch, we wouldn't be able to have CAKE without you!

PS Pictures from my trip to come....

Guess Where I'm Going?

Here are the following picture clues....

That's right London.... ENGLAND! Clark's been there for work and needs to stay one more week, so he invited me to come. (Very girly squealing inserted here!) I was always sad when he went to Africa, because he'd be gone from us. But I have to say I was a little miffed that he was heading to London without me. So I leave in a couple of days and fly to Amsterdam and then on to London. I'm excited and slightly freaking out. While I don't do as bad as some people on planes, I'm not the happiest flyer either. Wish me luck.

Back from Grande Prairie

So I did something that I have never done before: Took my kids on a little road trip without Clark. That's right we wandered up to Grande Prairie. 7 1/2 hours in the car with four kids. I've actually never been further then Edmonton, so that was an experience in and of itself. My sister and her family live up there and I usually make her come visit me (I know real nice sister.) So this time it was our turn. We spent Monday to Friday last week up there. Hit a lot of different parks, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and just had cousin fun.
Here's the kicker: I didn't have my camera. My camera (and darling husband) are both vacationing in London, England. (Insert English Theme from the movies here.) I'm only a little annoyed I didn't get to go. When Clark went to Africa, it wasn't a huge deal as it's not really on my list. But London?... Sigh.
Anyway, we have this week to survive and he'll be home. Nice thing was that I already ate up a week... in Grande Prairie.
