Alan always feel left out when Mommy and Daddy are playing on the Wii, so today I let him try the cycling on Wii Sports Resort. All You have to do for this one is move your hands up and down as if you are pedalling, and lean left or right to steer. Oh, and if you go too fast, you run out of breath. He had a great time, even if he did get progressively closer to the tv every time! More pics posted on Facebook here .

On a brighter note, Tina and Rob and the boys are due home in less than a week for a visit. Soooo excited to see everyone. Now I just have to figure out when we can all get together! Also, on August first, our friend Shawn is coming to stay with us for a while. He's looking to get a job here in Amherst. Alan is super excited, as are we. Should be fun! And, to top it off, we are going to have a huge crew of people here the following weekend (Aug 7 - 10). Two friends of ours from the states (whom we were introduced to through that online game we play) are coming for a visit. As such, the rest of the group we play with are coming as well, to make a party out of it. Tim and Julie are even bringing Al and May's camper! We're pretty psyched, obviously. Right now I'm trying to plan a whole bunch of meal items that I can cook in advance (if possible), will feed a ton of people, and be pleasing to a wide variety of eaters. So far, I've come up with chili, meatballs, turkey (I'll cook it in advance to have the meat for sandwhiches and maybe casserole), lots of cut up veggies, pasta salad, and potato salad. I also think I may make spaghetti one night. I'm also tossing around the idea of making (or begging my mom to make) a seafood chowder, since the guys are coming up from the US, but I don't know. I'll have to see if they like seafood or not. I'd hate to not give them a taste of the maritimes (even if I hate it). Anyway, I'd appreciate any meal ideas anyone has out there! I'm also dropping Alan off at mom's that weekend, since I need his bedroom, and would like to relax with everybody a little.
At any rate, that's my rant for the day. Now off to find another way to avoid all the laundry and housekeeping I really need to be doing!
