Canadian Fun...

A few pictures from our weekend in Canada - I think we all came back with an accent eh...

How we got around the golf course.... And mommy played too (and quite well, I might add, for the first time out)
Colin's love for water and dogs continues... Notice the lack of clothing on the boy
Eggs!!!! Helping Grandpa with the eggs - need I say more.
More swimming...


Toddler words

I love this...

Leaving for work yesterday morning -

Me - Colin, mommy is going to work now, Can you say Good Bye?
Colin - Mommy, no work today....

I wish I had that option! Mind you, this was said after me having an extended weekend home with them - spent in Ontario (photos to follow) which was full of swimming, playing with the dogs, and playing hockey and golf. No wonder he did not want to go back to the normal routine - who would....

What are we up to?

It has been a while and thought I would get everyone up to date.

Upcoming Events - we are heading to Ontario this weekend! Big events will be dinner with the Graham's, and the big party for Anna and Bennie (both 1)! Looking forward to seeing everyone

Anna Loves - she know thinks it is really funny to feed other people and to pull herself up at the table.

Colin Loves - imitating others (funny expressions, etc); tickling people.

Momma Loves - running outside more and more! Reading her new book - Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult.

Favourite foods - Spinich stuffed raviolis still rock the house! Dates are a favourite snack.

Pacifier Patch

Will this be Colin in a few years????

On the road again

I have landed in North Carolina and will be here until Saturday morning.... I am excited to have a big bed to myself and the pending anticipation of sleeping in in the morning (although I do have an 8:15 breakfast meeting).

What I miss the most while on the road....
  • Colin tickles - he loves to be tickled and has started to tickle mommy. It is pretty funny!
  • Anna bounces - when ever she hears music (any kind) she starts to bounce up and down. I swear at times she gets clearance...
  • Playing at the park - Anna loves the slides and the swings; and for Colin it is anything that involves being outside.
  • And of course, I miss the D man too!

Mama misses you guys.
