That Reminds Me ...

It's been a little windy around our parts and that has cause a bunch of power outages. Some people are not happy with how we're getting updates on the progress to restore power.

In the spirit of our, possible, new rulers in the NDP. I would like to suggest everyone to get used this problem if we "go green" with our power supply.

From a few months ago: Lawrence Solomon: Don’t count on constant electricity under renewable energy, says UK electricity CEO

Electricity consumers in the UK will need to get used to flicking the switch and finding the power unavailable, according to Steve Holliday, CEO of National Grid, the country’s grid operator. Because of a six-fold increase in wind generation, which won’t be available when the wind doesn’t blow, “The grid is going to be a very different system in 2020, 2030,” he told BBC’s Radio 4. “We keep thinking that we want it to be there and provide power when we need it. It’s going to be much smarter than that.

Maybe your OK with that.

Re "A Visit to the Sugar Bush" I grabbed a small sequence of photos. The kids were hanging out in the little garden. They were looking cute at the end the of the pond.

Then Mama called out "I'm going to get you!"

Off they went with Mama hot in pursuit.

Around the bridge they ran to get away

BigE was faster a foot.

BigE proving that you don't have to out run the wild animal just someone else in your group. Poor Peanut lost. To be fair those boots probably slowed here down quite a bit.

A Visit to the Sugar Bush

On the weekend we visited the Sugar bush as part of Mama's birthday weekend. The kids had a pretty good time with an egg hunt, farm animals, and a giant breakfast.

On the way out we checked out the "Big Chair". The kids were quite pleased by it.

Some egg hunting pictures working from oldest to youngest.

Yeah Rye wasn't getting very far but he had fun chewing on the eggs.

Here is Peanut checking out the rabbits. She was getting a boost up by my foot.

BigE and the cattle.

The gang out by the horses. Peanut with her "Do you see this? Hi horsey!!" look

Mama and little Rye checking out the horse.

I'm Super

Peanut informed me the other day "I Super" and handed me her blanky. After figuring out she wanted a cape I grabbed these photos.

This was an action shot that really captured the moment.

Measuring Stick?

I'm not really sure what's going on here. I just found this photo of BigE and Rye.

Is BigE stablizing the two tippy towers? Is he measuring the height of his tower or brother? Who knows. At least BigE is very good with Rye.

Rye Climing Montage

I'm not saying all he does is climb because that wouldn't be true but when the child does want to climb he sure seems capable. Considering there were taken before he turned one.

This is the "I'm not in the way look am I?"
Rye on the dishwasher door

Here's Rye pleased with himself. Step 1 pick a chair, step 2 pull youself up, step 3 grab onto the table and pull yourself up. And finally step 4 pillage anything left on the table.

This one fortunately he has stopped with. He's gotten higher but I wanted to snap the picture before he got too high.
