B was so glad the weather warmed up JUST for the one day she had an all-day outdoor field trip! She made sure to be completely prepared for every eventuality, and had an amazing time!
This was our first visit to the Governor House here in the city. It was wonderful! The kids enjoyed searching for the crowns in the different rooms, dressing in period clothes, and playing in the play room. We loved it. We plan to go back in the Spring or Summer and enjoy a picnic on the grounds.
We have been out skating much more this year than in past years. The girls really love it, and they keep getting better and better! I just need to get myself out there on those skates. My legs don't like the slippery ice, though. They prefer the dry ground.
We had a fantastic family day! We did the Tunnels of MooseJaw Passage to Fortune tour, then had lunch out, followed by swimming at the YMCA and a buffet dinner. It was fabulous from beginning to end - made even better by spending it with the people I love most!
That enormous smile is completely genuine. This was JJ's first time being invited to a friend's birthday, and it was quite the event! She helped me wrap the gifts and drew a picture in the card. She was so anxious to go and had the time of her young life!
Meet B's first official pets...all hers! She is getting so responsible and eager to show us how she is growing up. We knew it was time. She faithfully feeds these little minnows and makes sure their tank is clean. She is so tender-hearted, she cried when one died a few days after we got them. Seeing as they are meant as feeder fish, we knew they may not last long. However the rest have been doing great! She is so proud of herself for taking care of them.
This is one place I could very literally spend hours a day if I let myself. I remember working at a bookstore before I was married and the smell of new books and the sight of those crisp, clean pages still makes me SO happy! I loved getting to know each customer, what their tastes were, when a new book was released they might like - and recommending it! I loved it. I still love being there. I have always loved escaping with a good book!
