Just random stuff...

James has loved the change in weather and gets so excited to go outside now! We had a pretty good weekend, except I was sick on Saturday, so James spent the day with Daddy and Grammy. Sunday we went to the ball park for a game and he loved being at the park, watching everything, playing with all the dogs and eating of course! Camera battery was dead of course upon arrival:(

On Monday we had Luc over again and I took this hilarious picture of James and him in the double jogging stroller we bought. James loves to sit forward, so decided to propel himself up using Luc's ribs as leverage! Sorry Luc!

James loves all the trees around our neighbourhood and touching all of the bark!

This morning, we went to the zoo. We rode the train around the park and saw some of the exhibits! James' favorite was the giraffes and he thought this one was real!

This one was real! And he squealed and clapped with delight when he moved!

We are off to Victoria for three days tomorrow, so Daddy can finish all our windows in the house! Go Daddy Go!

A Play Date All Day!

Luc is a friend of mine that will be coming over a few times each month for the day, as his Mommy went back to work. At first, it's hard to share a Mommy, but I got used to it and also learned to share my toys! Here's me showing Luc my tools!

Luc loved my sound puzzle!

Sharing and playing is fun!

Let's Eat! Turkey, pasta, cheese & kiwis! Luc is the fastest eater I've ever seen, so my mom had to cut his pieces very, very small.

Oh man, I have to sit next to you the whole way?

Taking turns at the park


That wasn't so bad...we could do it again, just keep your elbow outta my rib!

What a Weekend!

We had a jam-packed weekend of family fun! First we went to the Cloverdale Rodeo to check it out. James loved all the animals and watching people on the rides. Here he is with a goat! 

Our friends Roxanne and Yann came by on their way home with Noey, James' girlfriend and her new baby brother, Everett (2 weeks old)! So we had a nice lunch on the patio and a quick play before they drove home to Vernon.

James had tons of time to play in his house (which I found on the side of the road, for FREE over the Easter weekend!) Such a good find!

And lastly, the water park opened up in Brookswood! Yee-haw, hello summer! We also let James have some nudie time around the block (I say block because he ventured next door to water Dave and Bonnie's lawn!) I tricked him into going through our sprinkler, which he didn't seem too bothered by. Ah...I can already picture our summer days!

Look out Steve Nash...

James is hot on your trail to be the next basketball MVP - this video will likely need to be archived to prove his early skills, once the NBA calls!

RoMpIn' ToTs!

Since James has been walking, we've ben taking him to a Tot Romp drop-in at the Walnut Grove Community Centre. He loves it and loves the instructor when she sings at the end and pulls out the parachute. He stands in front of her and claps - it's quite cute! Finally took my camera today to catch some action shots! Best part about the outing, is that he's exhausted afterwards and (fingers crossed) has about a two hour nap, which is mutually beneficial:)

A lovely day for a Picnic!

Today we celebrated Mother's Day, my first, at Peace Arch Park, where Geoff and I got married! There was tons of flat ground for James to walk on (easier than the beach at this stage) and we lucked out with the weather!  James loved going for walks to visit dogs with his Grammy, riding in his car with Auntie Jocey, eating everything and just being outdoors! It was a great afternoon for us (me especially, because I got a 2 hour nap when we got home!) James and Daddy spoiled me with a Spa Utopia gift certificate, which I will gladly use and stretch my hour appointment into three hours of trashy magazine reading, steaming and dried blueberry eating!

Being one with the Earth

Today was hot enough to strip down and give James a break from the 24/7 in a diaper! He helped Geoff with the veggie garden we expanded and loves exploring the yard!

How come cellulite on a baby's bum is cute and not mine?

Hosin' Around

What a gorgeous hot day we had today! James was quite interested in the hose when Geoff was cleaning his lawn equipment, so I grabbed the camera after some hilarious attempts at drinking and funny expressions when are a few!

I love how simple a hose is, but how interesting James made it!
