Well, that was a fun way to spend four and a half hours. And we probably could have stayed longer if we didn't decide that Shay needed to go home for a nap, and we were running out of food. Ever since we've been home just before 3 o'clock I keep offering everybody snacks, but they keep declining. I figured they would be hungry, but they all munched on pretzels all the way back, so maybe they weren't as hungry as I thought they would be.
My niece met me and all the friends enjoyed playing with one another.
These two are best friends. And as they sat there on their towels playing with a few water balloons in a bucket, I thought that they are looking very grown up.
Isaac appreciated all the snacks. All I packed were banana muffins, yogurt, veggie chips and pretzels but it certainly kept everyone happy while we were out.
Jade is very bendy. She was doing cartwheels and Fara was trying very hard to copy her. It didn't take long before Jade was doing cartwheels and Fara lost interest. Lol.
Hmmm. Jade is going to 8 next week and Mila was 5 in February. One girl is very tall for her age!
Save on Foods came by and handed out free ice cream to the kids and water to the adults. This happened a few weeks ago too, at a different park. We felt very lucky!
The sun finally arrived after noon, but it still wasn't very crowded. We all had a splendid time at the water park!

It's a quiet day at Daycare today and we met friends at the park this morning. And now I have two little boys who are fast asleep. They played in the sand for most of their morning and came home very dirty, which means they had a lot of fun!

My staycation was fun, but I was happy to be back at work this morning. I like normalcy, I like routine and I really missed my kids.
Miracle #3 has headed off camping this week with her family. Miracle #2 was camping with his family last week near Whistler. I feel badly for anyone who was camping last week because of all the smoke in the air as it's as clear as can be this week. Although I cannot guarantee that there is no smoke where #2 has headed, it's a lot cooler and they are all going to have fun.
Jade is with me this week because #3 is away and I already don't want to give her back. She is so helpful and agreeable. And she absolutely LOVES the little ones. She is so excited because #3 is getting 3 new babies in the next few months because some of her older ones are leaving. I'm getting Preston's little sister in a couple of months too, as she is almost one. Gosh, that year went by fast!
She wanted to give Aubrie her bottle and Aubrie was more than happy to let her. She's looking a little bit tired and went to bed right after this and slept for just over three hours. Thanks Jade!

It's been a very lazy day. I had my hair cut and coloured at 9, came home and went to the Farmers Market and to the grocery store. Our cupboards were bare and after a week of not cooking, it was time to replenish the food. We had lunch and then went and did a couple of errands. Hubby picked up Vietnamese food for dinner and I went to church while he he stayed home and did some yard work. I'm tired, but I'm sure that it is probably the medication that is helping with that.
Here are some more fun pictures from our outing on Wednesday.
Yes, there really were other children here, but you would never know it from any of the photos.
They were both in awe when they first arrived. They didn't know where do go first.
Playing and pretending. They both do it very well.....they have great imaginations.
In the ice cream parlour. Making ice cream cones to sell and to eat.
She loved this tv camera. It's cute that she was trying to see her sister who was pretending to be a newscaster.
Sharing a news story with her viewers. Actually, she was looking at herself in one of the screens. They all love to watch themselves on tv!

The last two days have been rather mundane. I woke up with a toothache yesterday and ended up going to the dentist because it hurt so badly. I've never had a toothache before and it was throbbing. Turns out that it was abscessed and I need a root canal. I was prescribed Amoxicillin which I have been taking for just over 24 hours. It's helping but it still really hurts, so I'm not talking very much and not eating a whole lot either. We've gotten a few chores done and I had my hair cut this morning so I'm still keeping busy. The smoke gave way to some blue sky and clouds this morning and I never thought I would be so excited to see the mountains. It's still a bit smokey, but it looks and feels sooooooo much nicer.
I have been spending a fair bit of time on my iPad and was looking at pictures of our fun days with the blessings. Here are a few more from Kidtropolis.......we sure enjoyed our day.
This is in the Veterinarian's office.
They both went into the Doctor's office and headed in different directions.
I love watching her play. She's always thinking.....always talking.
They went into the post office and sorted mail.
But Baby went back to the Doctor's office.
And she played with the computer at Boston Pizza.
They loved making pizza in the big open oven. Which is exactly how pizza is supposed to be made!
