Thanks mom for a nature moment!

So mom called the kid's yesterday morning and told them she had just got home from her walk and they had seen a injured baby deer. She said she would come pick them up to go look. So we all jumped in the van and on the way out Grandma explained to the kid's about this dear hurting it's leg and sister Regehr was going to call the fish and wildlife to come help it ect.ect. A nice story all in all, and the kid's were anxious to see this little deer. So we get to the place and Mom said oh it's already been taken , boy that was fast so we circle around and mom spotted it....... and so did the kid's......... Somebody had put it out of it's misery with one right though the head. It was totally mangled with one of the eye balls popped right out. So Mom exclaims well we don't need to see that and speed off but not before the kid's got a good look at a mangled baby deer. Paris told Grandma it looked like someone ran over it's head not it's leg. Mom and i burst out laughing and laughed all the way home meanwhile trying to explain to the kids why someone shot it between burst of laughter. Well it was a good try at having a nature moment with the kids but we don't want one again for a long time!

here is a few random pictures
Paris came home boobing the other day after being outside playing with kids
I asked what the problem was but dident really listen, But then she lifted up her shirt and she had a perfect hand print on her tummy. One of the kid's had wound up and smacked her. No wonder she was boobing!
Brad had a movie night with the kid's last night.... there is almost to many of us
to fit on the pull out couch.

We went to head smashed in Buffalo jump today. The kids had fun. Half way though Paris asked why it as all about buffalo... We had to remind her the name of the place but that's our girl.
Blaze had a fun time picking the buffalo's nose.

This was Knox's first big outting and our's as a family of 6. All in all it went well. We left with everyone we came with.

I was messing around with the camera while Brad was trying to figure out were we were going and this is the picture it took. I really like it.


  1. Oh I hope that smack wasn;t from Kaden, he was getting into lots of trouble the other day when your kids were over playing, for hitting everyone, so he got a smack on the bum and a few time outs!! Little fart!! Hope she is OK, poor girl! Looks like the outing to the buffalo Jump was fun!! We have never taken the kids there yet, maybe we should one day!!

  2. Hahaha it was Kaden but it was pretty amazing to have that good of a hand print! Kid's eh! You guys are always in waterton lately looks like so much fun.

  3. We went to Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump with Bryan and Jan a couple of years ago. Weird name, but we really liked it. I can't believe how different Knox looks! It's amazing how fast babies change.

  4. ya Brent is obssessed with hking this year and its driving me nuts! I think Im going to have to hide the Waterton pass so he can stay home and do something around the yard instead of play play play, I dont think he knows anything else lately!! I am sick of Waterton!!!
