This past weekend, our church, North Pointe Community Church, put on a FREE children's carnival. There was a petting zoo, pony rides, carnival games, bouncy castles, face painting, spray on tattoos, a photo booth and a BBQ lunch! We wanted to take Isla last year, but did feel as though at 8 months old, there might not have been lots for her to enjoy. So, we were pretty excited to take her this year. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and Isla had the time of her life. Most of you already know that Isla LOVES animals... and this is a vast understatement. She can point out ANY animal and make their noise... this includes plugging her nose when she sees a skunk. It's sooooo cute. So, the petting zoo was a definite hit. She was in there like a dirty shirt... petting the donkey's face, chasing the bunnies and grabbing the goats horns. She was "ca-caaaaing" right alongside the parrot and mooing when she pet the cow. We then took her into the bouncy castle where Cam joined her. They laughed and jumped and rolled around... she loved it! And then, my favorite part... her face painting. She told us she wanted to be a puppy (we asked her about several animals and she shook her head so when asked about a puppy, the enthusiastic "YEP" was a dead giveaway). She sat PERFECTLY still, I was amazed! She is certainly the cutest puppy I have ever seen! Right??

It has been ages, once again, since my last blog post. I really want to blog, but sometimes finding the time to do so is impossible. Life in the Schellenberg house has been somewhat nutty and chaotic. Cam has been incredibly busy with work, working late evenings and almost every day on the weekends. I work 4 days a week and then of course, we have Isla who requires love and attention... fancy that? So, now I am sitting down and adding some updated photos of our lovely family.
