Spring and summer came this week. We did all sorts of exciting things. I’ve been trying to take my camera but it’s a long list of must haves with an infant and a toilet training toddler.
This picture below is Vanessa checking out a beetle. We went to a park nearby that Eric cycles through to get home from work and met him there with a pic-nic. It was a really nice night to eat el fresco. Eric loved showing up at the park and dinner was all ready to eat.
Since it’s been getting hot I asked Vanessa if she wanted her hair tied up like Mommy and she pretty much ignored me until the next morning when she came up to me and asked me to tie it up like Mommy in a pony tail. We set her up downstairs and tied it up. She was an angel. With all her curls and fine hair it’s hard to comb but she sat patiently while I tied it up.
Here are gratuitous pictures of Hailey.
Vanessa was generously given a house for her birthday. It has was set up at Grandma and Grandpa’s until the weather got nice. We’ve had some gorgeous weather and Vanessa’s been able to play in her house in the backyard quite a bit.
Candiac is on the ball. It opened it’s sprinkler parks early. They’re awesome. We were called Monday to join the playgroup at the park last Monday and it couldn’t have been better.
As you can see we all had fun. I called Chris the night before to join us with Kieran and they jumped at the chance. I picked them up at the bus and we drove over to the park. Kieran was hesitant but will likely be more confident next time. Vanessa had a complete blast. (Thanks Christina for the cute bathing suit)
Saturday was a busy day with swimming and cleaning cars. We spent the whole day with Chris and Kieran. Had lunch with Tim and Grandma. Vanessa and Kieran have started to play with each other. It’s a lot of fun to watch. Especially when they get into laughing fits.
Post nursing rest.
We did try to put the two oldest down for naps but were unsuccessful so I pulled out a bucket of water and some toys. They had a lot of fun in the back yard. Vanessa going on about two friends to Kieran while they slid together down the slide and swinging together. It’s what summers memories are made from. Sorry I don’t have any pictures of that since I was inside making marlin to BBQ along with some sides. Chris brought a nice dessert and we had a lovely meal outside watching the clouds.
