We're all going on a bear hunt

Now that the boys are feeling better, I'm starting to feel a bit sick. Sort of achy and just off (just in time for the weekend... nice, hey?) I have spent much of the morning laying on the couch, and letting the boys play around me. They did a good job of keeping themselves entertained, and for a while they even went upstairs to the bedroom and played quietly! Thank heaven for small miracles. Afterwards, I let them have a picnic lunch on the living room floor and they were thrilled. A picnic lunch fit in rather nicely with their camping and hunting game! They packed their backpacks full of all the "stuff that we need for hunting" (you know, like coats and hats, a pair of barbeque tongs and a rolling pin) and then proceeded to hide all the animals from their Noah's Ark all around the house.

Then they suited up (how adorable is Sawyer in the photo above? I love that he's wearing two toques) and headed off in search of them all. They were most excited about catching a polar bear and a tiger (they wanted Bob to be the tiger, but I figured the poor cat wasn't up for being stuffed into anybody's backpack!). Now they're asleep, I wonder if they're dreaming of the adventures they had?

Speaking of sleep, it's time for me to have a rest now, too. I need to feel better by tonight. Michelle is in town from Winnipeg, and it's girls' night out. We're having dinner at Pagliacci's (my favourite), followed by tea and treats somewhere else. I want to feel well enough to enjoy the bread and pasta, and maybe even a wee glass of wine! Wish me luck. I have a feeling I'll need it...
