Our Summers End

The summer is now behind us. I wanted to post some pics of the kids enjoying the summer weather at some of the attractions we visited this summer...


Amelia was lucky enough to play t-ball, and soccer. Her Soccer coach was her cousin Tony. She loved it, and we loved watching her! Of course we bribed her with every goal you get you get an ice cream...

We had a mini Vacation at Niagara Falls. We love it there!

on the lady bug roller coaster, we rode it 4 times!

Everyone loves Marineland!

the dolphin show!
Especially me!

We visited the Elmvale Zoo.

2 pretty princesses!

We had play dates with our friends and played dress up!

We did lots of swimming and park visiting!
First Birthday!

Somebody learned how to walk...

We also made it to Canada's Wonderland and Santa's village but my camera didn't.
Off to work I go!

Parks and buses!

Here's my Baby. All dressed up as a little man! He likes to go to the park, just him and I, to chase the ball. Today, at the park there happened to be other people. Other people with a plane!

This is him thinking "They have a plane, and all you brought me to play with is this lousy ball?"

So we watched and chased the plane until it was time to get his big sister at the bus stop.
If you read my last post this is the kind of picture I was referring to. My daughter obviously played hard today at school! So hard that she fell asleep on the bus!
She sits in the front of the bus, when the bus stopped I could see her hair plastered against the window not moving... Then after the bus driver calls her name, all I could see were these two big blue eyes peek up at the bottom of the window. It was so cute! I wish I had my camera ready. She comes to walk around the corner and she's all disheveled, her hair was a mess and her face was dirty. If it was picture day I would be freaking!

Here is a picture of her before dinner...So tired!

Forgive me Mrs. M...

... if sending your kid to school sick is a sin, then I have sinned!


My Daughter is catching onto what day of the week it is. Good for her, bad for me. When she woke up this morning she was a little under the weather, no fever, but all congested and yucky. I would have liked to keep her home this morning to get better, especially because Friday is picture day(EEK). But she was having none of that.

I tried with the "oh there's no school today" but she responded with "mom, your just jokin' me" "cough-cough".
She couldn't remember it was Wednesday, but she knew yesterday was Tuesday, and the next day she goes to school...

probably the ensemble for picture day

PICTURE day...
I am so nervous for picture day. Why am I so nervous??? Because every school or class picture my parents have hung up of me is awful. It's like they waited for the really ugly ones and hung them. Why is it the bad ones always resurface?

Anyhow, I was thinking maybe I should drive her to school that day and just go and ask if they need help with sitting the children... probably wouldn't go over well considering I would have the baby with me and I haven't had my criminal record checked in a while. Apparently that needs to be done before you can volunteer! Which is a good thing.
But, if I was there I could at least make sure her hair isn't all weird or that her dress isn't stuck in her tights. That happens a lot.
Maybe I'll send the teacher a note; Dear Mrs. M. please give my child a once over before you put her in front a camera. Thanks.
