We had a Pyjama Day on Wednesday and the children loved being comfy. I made them pancakes for breakfast, and we played games for most of the day. I actually had 6 boys and 1 girl in attendance and the day went by really fast. This was at the very end of our day (almost 5 o'clock) and everyone else had gone home. These two were just happy to count the marbles and spin them across the kitchen floor. Simple pleasures.

We found a new park today. Now that we aren't playing Beat the Clock every day because school is out, we had time to venture into Port Coquitlam this morning. There were lots of people there but the sight lines are good and my children were amazingly obedient, so it went really really well. I am sure we will be going back again.
And still has absolutely no fear!

My camera doesn't take very good pictures, but I gave it my best effort. When we arrived at Surekha's this morning I placed a few children on the step and attempted a group shot.
And then, of course, we needed Miracle #3 to join us and we did a double daycare shot. Spontaneity. At its finest. That's a lot of cute little children who we love and care for. And yes, Shannon, you are right. We do seem to have a lot more girls than boys right now, at least on Tuesdays anyway.....

My favourite son-in-law takes some really good pictures. And now that Grandson has an iPad that syncs up to his Dad's iPhone, we end up seeing a lot more that he takes. #3 sent these to me, and they are so special!
They make me smile, and fill my heart with such joy!

So I crossed something off of my bucket list last night. And I have to admit.....it was rather fun! We went to friends for dinner and one of them has a Harley. When he found out that I had never been on a motorcycle and had always wanted to go, he was more than happy to take me for a ride. It was also on Glory's bucket list so he made two middle-aged ladies very happy! Seriously. I really couldn't stop smiling for the entire ride!

Sweetheart has been waiting for this day for more than a year. She has always wanted to dance on the stage. When she was 3, she took some classes through Parks and Rec, and they don't have a year-end show. So this year it was very important to her to go to dance class and prepare for a show.
She had her first recital this afternoon, and you could tell that she was nervous, but she performed magnificently. I think it's safe to say that this won't be her last recital, she has already asked to take tap and jazz next year. A star is born.

We actually call her dance move, The Paige. She rocks back and forth from one leg to another with her hand on her hip, and usually looks very serious because she is concentrating. She actually keeps the beat and it's really really cute.

Here are a few more pictures from Sweetheart's preschool graduation. They were on SIL's phone, and they turned out pretty good!

Sweetheart was so funny because as usual, she says the funniest things. As she dressed for her performance, she stated that it was so good that she was wearing pink so that she could be the prettiest pig. I know; she doesn't suffer at all from low self-esteem, but her Mommy was sure to tell her that all of the little girls would be pretty. Face palm. Lol. And then as her Mommy was doing her hair and she was looking in the mirror, she said, "My eyebrows are on point!" Oh my goodness, she makes me laugh!

This was so cute! Baby and her friend are so two years old. And they really don't get along very often. But in the past few weeks, they have been playing together. Sometimes it is for just a few minutes, and sometimes it is for longer than a few minutes. I was disappointed to have to interrupt them so that we could go to Music Class, as they were having such a great time sharing and pretending to eat food.

We started our day at the ball field to watch Grandson play in his postponed game from yesterday. They did begin a game in the morning but was called after the first inning due to the pouring rain!

Closing day for Softball was officially rained out. But that didn't stop a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds from gathering together at Albion Sports Park to receive their medals!
