Canada Day

Posted by Jamie

I didn't want to go to Prince's Island park because I've been 3 years in a row and each year I feel uncomfortable because it is load and crowed. Nathan said "we are going, it's a tradition". He sounded so serious I decided to let him have his way and we went. Surprise, surprise I actually had a good time. I think this might mean that I've become a city girl or motherhood has finally made me chill out. Prince's Island Park was just as I remembered it, loud and crowed but for some reason I had a good time. It was probably because I was with my wonderful husband and happy sons. Marvin and Charlie had a wonderful time playing at the playground and wadding pool. They listened to music, waved flags made a craft, wrestled on our blanket and ate ice cream. When we got home we watched a movie and relaxed on the couch. It was a great day! Oh the boys wore patriotic colours because I actually remembered to buy them red and white clothes and we started off our day with a red and white breakfast. Ice cream and strawberries on whole wheat flax waffles. Nathan and I were exhausted by our celebrating and went to bed at 9pm. the next morning Nathan asked "did we sleep through the fireworks." I answered "I think we did". We live really close to down town and sleep with our window open so that is pretty amazing. That shows that we truly partied hard on canada day.

Yesterday morning while the boys were bathing Marvin couldn't resist holding his baby brother.  They looked so cute snuggling in the tub. Later that day while we were walking home from the Zoo I peeked into the stroller and noticed that Marvin was holding Charlie's hand.  I was so amazed I yelled at my Sister In laws so they could see too.  While I was pregnant with Charlie I never imagined that Marvin would be such a loving and gentle big brother.  What a wonderful surprise!
