Last Fall, Mike and the kids discovered this fat caterpillar looking for a place to build a cocoon. We put him in an aquarium and hoped that he would make it through our long winter and hatch this Spring. While we were away in June, he finally hatched! Many thanks to our neighbor for taking pictures for us. We did get to see him when we returned. A very handsome Prometheus Moth. We were so happy that we got to see him and then we opened the aquarium and he flew away once it was dark.

We took a family vacation back in June and visited Toronto.
Saw some sites, did lots of walking, and had some great food and beers.
Our first stop was the Hockey Hall of Fame.
We spent the night in a hotel and then spent an entire day at the zoo. It took us eight hours to see everything but the kids slept great in the car on the way home. It was a very memorable trip!
This year, Philip got to have a party with friends!
We played lots of games.
Colored birds for pin the Birdie in the Tree.
And opened presents!
Philip really enjoyed the celebrations and was happy to wake up on the morning
of his birthday with some more great gifts!
And the best gift of all was the set of goalie pads!
