We started our day early when a little almost two year old came over at 9 am and we just arrived home at 10:45 pm. Lots of fun, full of family and birthday festivities. Some of us were out in Mission today celebrating a 6 year old and a 4 year old......

Miracle #3 was showing some of the children how to whistle through a blade of grass. Tai was very pleased with himself when he figured out how to do it!
And of course Baby needed to copy her sister. She didn't even care that she couldn't do it. But she had to try!

It has been incredibly hot this week. Like, record-breaking temperatures at the beginning of the week. It was 27-29 degrees on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so it was a nice reprieve to get the rain last night and we all appreciated the 22 degrees that it was this morning.
I love Fara's Rapunzel hat. She even slept in it today!
After we spent some time with the horses, we went across the street to see if we could see the ducks. We could hear them, but they were just around the corner of the creek, so we couldn't actually see them.
And this is on the sidewalk going home. Ants. It really doesn't take much to impress pre-schoolers.

This happened a couple of weeks ago, but it still makes me smile. Isaac is a quiet little boy. I was making snacks one Monday morning and I saw him go past me in the kitchen into the playroom. But when I called everyone to come and eat, he didn't. So I was just a little surprised when I walked into the playroom and he was nowhere to be seen. I didn't think to look under the quilt in the corner of the room.........I have no idea why I wouldn't have, but I didn't......so for a few brief seconds I was a little bit concerned. All of the other children arrived to help me look and we had lots of giggles when we saw the quilt move and a little head peeked out.

We started our morning in Coquitlam, watching Grandson play rugby. He's fun to watch, and I am even starting to understand the game.

What a great day! I know that this was really yesterday but I haven't gone to bed yet so it still feels like today. We came home from a 50th birthday party a short while ago and we ended up staying later than anticipated.
This was the nicest Opening Day for baseball that I can remember. It was sunny and warm. Perfect Spring time Baseball weather. Grandson plays with 7, 8 and 9 year olds this year and the size differences between the children is quite remarkable. He is in the green jersey on 3rd base. The boy on the other team was a whole head taller.
Grandson loves hitting the ball, and he only batted this one time today. It was a nice little hit that got him to first base. The rules have changed for this year and it's 3 strikes, 4 balls now. Last year, they still had a T and got pitched to until they hit it so it's going to be different. Today, they just did the pitching machine because they only had time for one inning.
Baby loves her Mommy and her Pappa. A lot!
This little monkey just loved all her freedom to roam around the ball field. And of course, she will always find something to climb upon.
We watched Opening Ceremonies. This looks like Sweetheart is paying very close attention.....

Everyone is in a better mood when the sun is shining. These two two-year-olds really like each other. They have birthdays 8 days apart and haven't really figured out how to interact together, but they like to be close to one another.
One is playing with her doll and the other is looking at a book. But they sat together for a good 15 minutes or more.
Pretty Girl has been waiting for an outdoor day for awhile now. When you only come over for Daycare one day a week, it isn't always this nice outside. Hopefully, this is a sign of many, many more sunny Fridays!
This little two year old moves A LOT. She likes to wear her sunglasses.....she has always loved her accessories. You name it, shoes, purses, hats and glasses, she loves them all!
"Hi, Gamma." She actually looked at me AND smiled at exactly the same time. And yes, she likes to wear her glasses like this too. My favourite is actually when she wears them upside down.
This little car is well-loved. Someone gave it to me quite a few years ago and it gets used a lot.
