Sunday Afternoon Walk

We decided a little fresh air was in order this afternoon and took the girls to North Glenmore Park.  This is a  beautiful area with walking and cycling paths, a children's playground and spectacular views of the reservoir.

Grade Two

How did time go by so quickly?  
Miss S started grade 2 today.  She was so proud of herself. 

Miss C had to get dressed up ready for school too, including taking her backpack with her to the bus stop.

June 2012

Miss C and I often visit the park after taking Miss S to the school bus in the morning.  We enjoy seeing the ducks and being able to stay on the swings as long as Miss C likes!

Miss S had an end of year disco at school.  It was very enjoyable.

Miss C had a great time jumping up and down for an hour

May - Cherry Blossom Tree

My cherry blossom tree was so beautiful.

April Catch-Up

April was a fun month.

We took a trip to the dinosaur museum,

watched one of the last snowfalls of the year,

enjoyed wearing odd socks

and practiced smiling for the camera.

FEBRUARY - Weekend Trip to Banff

DH surprised me with a trip to Banff.  We stayed at the world famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

We enjoyed a pub lunch, walk around Banff and the shops, hot tub and swimming, late dinner at Castello Ristorante in the hotel and had a great time exploring this huge hotel.

We had a relaxing weekend and the girls had a great time with their grandparents.

Favourite Family Game: Hide and Seek

We love to play hide and seek with the girls.  We often play after dinner as a family activity before the bedtime wind-down routine begins.  Miss S is quite inventive at the places she chooses to hide in.  Although her latest thought was to hide in the Lego box, it didn't work out so well.

We have been trying to teach Miss C how to play.  I sat in my chair, counted to ten and she jumped up from behind me and shouted boo!  I don't think she yet understands how to play the game.  :)
