A spring weekend

We had a wonderful weekend aside from me catching whatever felled Cameron last week. Aches, the sniffles and a slight soar throat are not a good accompaniment to a beautiful Spring weekend. Cameron decided to nap really, really well so I got to nap in the afternoons while DH toiled away doing yard clean up and a myriad of other tasks.

Cameron discovers the Tupperware cabinet. Mommy and Daddy discover that Cameron now screeches if she doesn't get her way. We quickly learned when we packed up the cabinet and tried to make Cameron move on to other games. Epic fail.


One of the tasks this weekend was to get rid of these ants that have invaded our pantry. They have come and gone for the last year and we've tried spraying and ant traps with little success. DH picked up some liquid bait that attracted the ants like, well, like ants to food. After a day of them congregating in our pantry they disappeared. Upon inspection DH decided to caulk every interior edge of the pantry to eliminate future migrations. Smart man!


Cameron dries off after a swim lesson. She is up to 4 seconds under the water!
Cameron plays before we head into swim lessons.

Holden screams and cries when he doesn't get his way. And we found out our kitchen ants have been coming through an outlet.

We finally had to call a pest control person for our ant problem ... he scouted around, decided what kind of ants we had, and where they were coming from ... then he put down two 3 inch lines of bait ... within 5 minutes more ants than I'd ever seen ate it and disappeared ... he put down more said to wait for a couple of hours then wipe it up ... sure enough we have never had a problem since.

What is it about tupperware and kids? Mine wear the bowls on their heads ...

Love all the photos ...
