July 26, 2013
I suspect Alice might currently be teething or going through one of the many phases children go through before the age of 2 – She was something special yesterday. Hollering nonstop as she stomped around the house like some titan. It seems as though her favourite two words right now are variations and combinations of “No” and “Mama”.
This meant I had a low grade headache for a larger part of the day, and canada goose parka jackets store atlanta for sale also meant not being motivated enough to load the kids up to get our farm share.
Instead, I went solo this morning. With my Selgado Fenwick t-shirt and some Uniqlo pants, my home-mom-clothes and I pedalled over to grab my bag of goodies and also to get a bag of coffee beans from our neighbourhood café, Gracious Goods. They stock Transcend!
And that, my friends, is why a lady needs panniers.
Off to deal with my demanding toddler and to make celery/cauliflower soup!
Ciao for now:)
I retrieved my other birthday pictures! Here I am in my yellow dress (I like canada goose parka jackets store atlanta for sale because it reminds me of a table cloth somewhere in the south of France). I was also circulating little cupcakes.
Russ brought these awesome trucks that Dexter quickly gravitated towards, and later, the two thoughtful boys lined up the various vehicles to pay tribute to the fire. So cute.
Jason and Leisha came and went via bike.
Raffaella wins for awesome wrapping paper.
And here, another pretty gift for opening around the fire.
Just some random shots from last week. For me, it’s a sweet reminder of enjoying the outdoors with my warm friends. May we always feel so happy!
This past weekend included taking Dexter to get his hair cut. He was a trooper!
And played cards while lounging it up in our teeny trailer. We named it Walnut, after the 70s walnut veneer gracing its interior. I am in love.
Very quick, some snaps from this week!
The boys on the Fort Edmonton carousel. We took the kids down to ride the train and streetcar, etc, as a family time treat.
Here is Alice brushing her 6 teeth on my lap.
Dexter stayed up very late at my patio party and kept insisting that he wasn’t tired. I am wearing a monstrous birthday gift from Leisha around my neck.
Then Don and I rolled my birthday dinner into some What The Truck action! I had a BLT from The Local Omnivore.
Afterwards, I finally got around to partaking in some Latitude 53 patio action. Their new space is amazing!
Another busy and fun week. Can you believe that summer is um… almost half over?
Been remiss about posting this week. I was busy getting canada goose parka jackets store atlanta for sale ready for my little mid-week birthday celebration!
I advertised that I would have bubbles and cupcakes.
Children were welcome!
As soon as she got outside, baby Alice proceeded to go wading in what is supposed to be a contemplative babbling brook (think feng shui). Wet baby.
One of my neighbours had a play date down the street, so Glenn took a break from the party to walk his daughter up the alley.
Lisa, Crystal, and Carolynn.
One of my favourite parts of the evening was when a bunch of friends showed up with Swiss Chalet and proceeded to enjoy their picnic dinner on my stoop. Eating and drinking on my STOOP!
You can also see at this point that Alice had been changed into dry pyjamas.
Thank you to Kris, who came early to help me out, and who did all of Alice’s outfit changes (if you scroll down you will see that she required yet another outfit change). He also put her to bed for me. That’s a 5-star friend right there.
Alice, in the stream. Again.
As you can see, I was busy perching on the fence with my lady neighbour friends.
Dexter was more civilized in his water play.
Joined by Joanna and Russ. The kids had a great time!
I have a whole other set of photos taken with the birthday present Don got for me, but when I imported them into the computer they ran away to some unknown place and I have yet to find them. Coming soon!
It was a very relaxed birthday. Just the right amount of fun and celebration without being at all obsessive:)
I am now 33 years old! I have been feeling very grown up for quite some time, but for me, that’s not necessarily synonymous with old. Is this normal?
