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.


Yip! Snap! Yap!

On Wednesday we walked to the Library and Marvin took out a book about dogs called Yip! Snap! Yap! Each page has a picture of a dog making a different sound. Marvin loves acting out all of the different dog sounds and actions. Nathan filmed Me reading the book to Marvin. Enjoy!


The Calgary Tower

Posted by Marvin

So Grandpa has this pass to the Calgary tower, he has had one every year ever since I could remember, so at least a year (Dad says it's been a few years). He loves taking people up to it. He drives me there sometimes with his Hummer and shows me the sites. He always likes to talk to everyone up there and show them his Hummer waaaaaay down on the road, he even uses his keys to blink it's lights. I have fun up there, it's exiting for a while, then when I'm tired of it I go back down.


Marvin played with dirt today….

Pretty Boys!

Posted by Jamie

I have always know that Marvin was a pretty boy his eye lashes are stunning and even when he is wear all blue strangers occasionally think he's a girl.  This week end while Lilia was trying on her flower girl dress Marvin wanted to wear a necklace and a rose clip in his hair.  He looked so beautiful I couldn't believe it!  Today when I was changing charlie I took off his blue sleeper and he was wearing a green undershirt with a crocheted frill on the edges and he looked like a beautiful little girl too.  What can I say Nathan and I make pretty boys!
