March Break Photo Recap

"Ummmmmm, take a picture of us Mom, we're mendatating."

My mother, my sister and a couple of friends were over, but Shrek may have snorted a few too many Guinness that night.
The next day Shrek went to the Sportsman show and look at what followed him home...

It wasn't actually a spur of the moment decision. He took all of the courses last fall, waited for his license to come, installed a gun safe, pored over hunting websites and then made a shopping list. Have you ever seen a boy more pleased with his toy? I love the way Kira jumps in there.

Problem, nothing is going into the septic. At this point we have a bathtub full of sewage and a toilet that is overflowing onto the floor. When Matt and Damon dig up the septic tank lids, we think we might know what part of the problem is...groundwater.

Saved by Larry the Septic Guy. The septic tank was indeed full AND there was a clog in the main sewer pipe that comes out of the house. but as soon as it is pumped out, it fills with ground water. The septic field is draining back into the tank! So now we have to watch what is flushed until the spring thaw is completely finished.

Hanna and her cousin play with Lily.

There were also some hockey games, afternoon of horseback riding, a train ride and 3 day in Hamilton and a daytrip to Picton that weren't caught on camera.

Friends of my parents had a septic business when I was a kid. On the back of his truck was a picture of a guy pinching his nose and the words "no one sticks their nose in Jim's business"

Glad you got it working.
