Company Picnic Mayhem

Whoohoo! I am only about a week behind on blogging!

We have been enjoying a schedule packed with summer events lately and even though I am often exhausted, it is completely worth it. The kids love being busy and last weekend we attended the perfect event for them. Our company puts on a huge annual picnic that is geared towards families with every fun activity that you could imagine. There were rides, prizes, races, face painting, petting zoo, popcorn, balloon animals and pony rides. We managed to take part in almost all of it and Sydney would have stayed all day if I let her. The only problem was that I was lying solo and trying to wrangle two kids through this kind of a day was A LOT of work. Luckily I had a few incredible co-workers who helped me when I needed it. Even Henry rode a pony and held a bunny.... co cute!

New Look

I am so excited that I have finally found time to update the look of the blog!

I was getting tired of the old look and how dark it was. I have been meaning to update to something lighter and more spring appropriate for so long! I have also been trying to tie in the Brass & Baubles branding to our personal blog so that everything is cohesive. 

What do you think?

Brass & Baubles ~ Prairie Sunrise Quilt

I love how this quilt turned out. 

I knew that it was time to try something a little bit more traditional in a warmer color pallet (which is a little unusual for me). The outcome is stunning and completely different! This baby is available in the shop now and should sell quickly!

The Start of Track Season

The nice weather always means that it is time for sports in our family. 

A couple of weeks ago we headed down to Lethbridge for a visit and David's second big Track meet of the year. This is his second year throwing Javelin and even though I am not a massive fan of track and field it was really great to get out to support Dave. The wind was crazy (in true Lethbridge form) and the kids had a great time cheering on their dad.
