Our girl is almost 2

Our little Baby I is almost 2, less than 12 hours to go (oct 30th 2005 she was born while B was at a friends house for a sleepover and S was in hospital very sick and it was pouring rain outside...)

Today she had a little party with a few little ones.They made their own bear, or in our case a Puppy at Build a Bear. They played some games and colored while each one got to stuff their bear.After they finished stuffing their animal they all put their hearts in and they were all sewn up. It was then time to wash and brush their animal. They all had fun at this station, from there they went to find bows or things to put on, the girls had more fun with this than the boys... Baby I did not love this part when they sang but for turning 2 she did very well during the whole building process and waiting turns.They headed for snacks and cake. The cake was a big hit and so cute. She loves her new pink computer, now hopefully she will leave ours alone a bit more...Well, 5:45 and she was out...Exhausted from a very fun exciting day. The boys loved the cake, though B wanted the least girly peice we could find, lol and he didn't want a bear so he went and got a raindeer webkinz instead. We can't believe she is 2 already, they are all growing up soo fast

It's the end of another busy week....

The kids and I spent the week up at Camp in Squamish with Canuck Place. Its been fun and exhausting. We saw a bear and lots of bunnies and the kids had loads of fun. They loved going into the pool each day and all the activities. Stel came up friday night and we headed to whistler later Saturday morning. It seems to be tradition to head to whislter after camp and love wandering around. Baby I must have been exhausted after all her walking. Everyone seemed more energized after our ice cream cone!!!

Life just seems to get so busy at times, then add a long weekend and we are exhausted!!

We were on the Island on the long weekend, yes we were crazy enough to try catching a ferry on the apparently busiest long weekend of the year. We did well on our way over, we only had to get up at 3:45am shower get ready and take the sleeping kiddos to the van by 4:30am and head to the ferry terminal. We picked up groceries and snacks in Coombs, Baby I loves the goats on the roof so we had to visit them again. B loves the bookstore and S also thinks the goats are funny. Luckily we caught the ferry and were on our way to Hornby Island. We got a chance to visit up on the higher part of the island and the views are breathtaking! B and I were watching the fish and the so many kinds of starfish. It was so cool B said. B had so much fun outside on one of the ferries, the wind was crazy and the water was splashing over the sides, Stel and I were out with him and we all got soaked but he had so much fun. We enjoyed some beautiful scenery, some insane winds and rain and some very encouraging appointments.

On our way home we stopped in Parksville and B and Baby I played mini golf, then Stel, S and B went in the bumper boats. S was so excited, he laughed and squealed - he was happier than we've seen in a very long time. They all got soaked but had so much fun! We then headed to Nanaimo, we visited my Auntie Pearl. We then headed to the ferry terminal to wait 4 1/2 hours to catch a ferry and got home just in time to collapse into our beds! The alarm clock rang far to soon this morning. We had a very successful Happy Thanksgiving long weekend, hope you did too.
