Merry Go Round

Day @ the Mall

Saturday (before the snow hit) we headed over the Mall because they had a Merry Go Round, car ride and a bouncy castle thing. We met up with my parents, my sister's family and my cousins-in-law family. I think all the boys had a great time because they fell asleep on the car ride home.

Nicholas’ 3rd Birthday

Here's the video and some photos from Nicholas' third birthday party. It was nice to see the boys playing with their cousins and even better no one was injured. Kids love to rough house. Thanks Martine and Jamie for a great party.

If you missed it, here's the video from Nicholas' second birthday. The photos are on my old blog which I do not miss.

Children Invade Bark Lake

It was quite the busy weekend. Not only did the four of us (Donna, Ethan, Carter and myself) go camping, but my sister Kim and her husband Phil and their daughter Jade and our friends Aaron and Cynthia with their two sons Aidan and Declan also came up.

It's been years since we'll all been up there together. Of course there was hardly any alcohol consumed this time around. But it was still great to have the gang back together for a few hours. Plus the kids are older now and they can for the most part keep each other busy. We just need to keep an eye on them and make sure they don't go over the side of the campsite.

While my sister was trying to get Jade to have a nap my dad and I took the boys for a boat ride. It was a little cold out on the lake. Thank goodness they had hoods on their jackets.

On the way back we stopped off to see my friend Josh and his brother in law Nick who were wrapping up a week of working and recreation at their cottage. The kids downed a blow of corn chippy things and ran around on the balcony. I did have to pull apart Ethan and Aidan apart few times for the usually kid pushing.

Dinner was great but we had way too much food. That's what usually happens when everyone brings something. On the upside there was lots of food. Better more than less I always say. Josh and Nick come over for a bit after dinner and we had a fire more out of necessity than ascetics. The temperature dropped a wee bit this weekend.

Sunday morning was freezing. Luckily my dad had just bought a heater and it upped the temperature in the shelter by 10 degrees C.

My dad and I went off to sailing and I actually won the day, first time this year and probably the last. I finished 1st, 3rd and 2nd with 18 points. There wasn't that much wind, but it was the most I've got to sail in this summer. Everything just flows away when I'm out there, it's the most relaxing / stressful / fun time I can have.

Catherine

The day after Ethan's birth day we attended little Catherine's baptism. The weather was even better than Saturday. Ethan dragged me in the pool and I really don't like swimming, thank goodness there's no pictures of that.

I took some pictures with Jaime's camera (those are the good looking photos) and in the video you can hear the shutter on his camera going off.

Three Years

My little man is three years old. Where did the time go?

We had his birthday a weekend early and Donna did a great job getting everything ready for the event. Because when you're three it certainly is an event.

Luckily the weather cooperated for us. Rain was forecast but it was sunny and not super hot like in previous years so all his little cousins and friends could play outside.

Oh and he really likes Pixar's Cars.
