Abby's Daycare Graduation

Today at Abby's Daycare they had a Graduation Ceremony for the Kindergarten kids.  It was so awesome.  They marched in, sang a few songs and then "Walked across the stage" to receive their certificate and shake the Daycare Manager's hand.  We all stayed for Cake (Which the kids helped decorate), Root Beer and Juice.  I am so impressed with the Daycare and the staff.  They did an awesome job!!!
Below are some pictures and videos from the ceremony:

Camping at Spring Lake

This weekend we took out our new trailer camping.  We tried a new Campground just south west of Stony Plain, Spring Lake (http://www.springlakeresort.com/).  It was AWESOME! I highly recommend the campground.  We had a great time camping with the Russell's and Grammee & Grandad.  Here are a bunch of pictures and a few videos from the weekend:
