Of Prince and Princesses

We had planned to go to the annual Rokkosho Salmon Festival today. 

I got up early and headed to the gym. I followed it with a trip to my Hirohata Onsen (my new favorite).  I was back home toned, cleansed and rested in time for us to round up kids and head out by 9:30 a.m. 

Unfortunately, our princess woke up sick. Yeah - I know what you are thinking but ALL are daughters are princesses - and they will tell you I'm the queen. ::snort::  Anyway, Michael decided it would be better to go ahead and have all of us stay home today. I had offered to stay with Stacia alone. We cleaned, we organized, we played games....I made a "kitchen sink soup"....turned out to be WONDERFUL, with lots of leftovers for lunches this week. We love soup weather. 

We've been talking about what to do with Prince Charming as the insect supply around here is dwindling. The kids did their research. We took him down to a local pond and released him......he quickly went about hunting. LOL

I'll miss the little guy's company. I MUST talk to someone while I cook...and Prince Charming was a great partner in the kitchen. ::snort:: It was also  entertaining to catch flies and feed them to him rather than splat them on the walls. Ewwww....Just Sayin.

Michael and Jared put this shelf together for the laundry room. It's GREAT....the grain buckets are on the bottom (3 of them anyway) and I had somewhere to put the Vitacost order. LOL

Mike's been busy putting shelves in our closet....just a wonderfully, boring, typical family day.....a joy to live.

Choosing Joy!

Alright, WHAT is Prince Charming? Is it good that he is gone, or not? I guess you have a suitable replacement, so you won't miss the old one that much. :)

Prince Charming was the tree frog that lived with us about 3 months. It was becoming increasingly hard to find him food. We thought he'd have a better chance on his own.
