Happy Birthday Zack...the first installment

Wow...where does the time go....how can 5 years have passed so quick!!!!
Zack turned 5 on April 20th and was lucky enough to celebrate 4 different times!!! This photo was taken at the end of March when he celebrated with his other April birthday pals Travis and Neale at Chuckie Cheese in Cambridge. We'll post some more birthday pictures later this week...hopefully!!! The kids had a blast playing at Chuckie Cheese although the parents sanity was definately tested that day!!!

Zackary enjoyed celebrating his birthday with Grandma Ireland (who turned 30 AGAIN on April 1st) and Uncle Josh who was 24 on March 26th.

He got a Shrek CD player from his friend Travis and has been chilaxin to the sounds of MC Hammer and Raffi (interesting mix eh!!!).

Happy Spring!!!

Happy Easter and Happy Spring from Zackary and Brycen.
Thank goodness it is finally here.... no more snowsuits!!!
Zackary and Brycen coloured eggs with Sebastian's help this year.
Zack realy enjoyed himself and thought he should colour all the eggs in the fridge...why stop at 2 each!!!

Brycen coloured eggs for about 2 minutes, ate crayons for 1 minute and tried to use the eggs as baseballs for the rest of the time!!! Maybe next year.....
Easter for the Tummers Boys was a pretty 'sweet' affair!!! The Easter Bunny had full intentions of not having too much candy here so that Mommy wouldn't eat it all!!! But Sebastian had other ideas, wanting to treat his host family to lots of yummy goodness. Thankfully no one noticed when the easter bunnies became chocolotate chip cookies later in the week!!!!

Zack, caught in the act of pre egg hunt munching!!!

Brycen shared his treats with anyone who was willing to help him open them. We got pretty tired of his 'cute' word gigo after the third day of Easter candy!!!

Back online again!!!

We're back online and hopefully I'll keep this blog more up to date than the last one. It should be easier now that we have highspeed!!! Here are some photos of things we've done lately...hopefully I'll have more in the next week or so.
The March Break holidays were spent in Blue Mountain at a cottage. Zackary, Brycen and I took our French exchange student, Sebastian, and 3 of his friends up to Collingwood to ski. We enjoyed all kinds of winter activities and spent lots of time relaxing at the cottage. Geoff was able to join us one day for some fun at a water park.

Ready, Aim, FIRE!!!!

Brycen LOVES chocolate (and all gigos...as he calls candy). This shot was taken at the village at Blue Mountain while we enjoyed our hot chocolate, chocolate factory chocolates and sat by an outdoor fire to warm ourselves.

Jiffypop magic...Zack was amazed and so excited with this 'speriment' that he tried on our holiday. It was Sebastian's first experience with jiffypop too but he wasn't as easily put in awe!!!

Brycen wasn't too sure what to think of toboganning (otherwise known as botagganing in Zackary speak)...he screamed, cried and then asked for more!!!

Zack on his first snowmobile ride with Uncle Josh and his girlfriend Marjan. They toured down from Teeswater in early March.

A great day of winter fun in February. I think we built our first snow fort that day, had a snow ball fight and then headed in for hot chocolate and gigos (Brycen's word for anything that resembles a treat...in this case, marshmallows)
