Beautiful autumn day


Nothing makes me happier than seeing Joshua enjoy himself.  We went for a walk today around Kitsilano, and stopped by the park to play on the swing.  Joshua giggled the whole time and had a blast.

The weather has been so gorgeous for the past few days.  The air is crisp, and the sun shines bright.  I love being out and about in this weather!



Partying all weekend


The weather has been absolutely gorgeous for the month of August.  This weekend was no exception.

We were busy all weekend.  Saturday we went to a 1st birthday party at the Creekside Community Centre.  Wow, what a great facility!  I think I’ll take Joshua there more often. He loved the play gym and all the toys.  Then we went for a Costco run and got some wild salmon to BBQ for dinner.

Sunday morning we went to visit a friend who just had a baby girl.  I held the baby in my arms while Cliff and the couple ate lunch.  I really did not want to give her back to her mom.  She was so tiny and so precious!

Then we went to the Kitsilano Farmers Market.  It was the corn carnival.  I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t a lot going on with the corn carnival other than two vendors were selling corn.  But we bought some corn anyway.

The partying continues when we then went to the block party at the park just behind us.  The businesses close by sponsored the event, so there was a huge slide for the kids, music, free hot dog and corn roast, and a few games.  There were lots of families and kids and dogs.  Oliver and Teresa brought Ainsley and Joy to join the party.  We also ran into a little girl in Joshua’s music class.  It was very nice block party!
