After race barbecue

We went over to Lauren and Mark's friends Jodi and Greg's house for a BBQ after the big race . . . some people thought it was funny to push David around in a DOLL stroller :-)

Peter and Morgan said the heck with it and jumped in the pool with their clothes on for some splish splash FUN!!!
Pete gravitates to lawn mowers wherever he is . . . by FAR his fav toy!!


Dad poses with little David . . .


Ryan aka Walker plays with Jodi and Greg's new puppy . . . where did he get the energy after running the half marathon in all that heat????

Ottawa Race Weekend

Lauren and Mark came up to visit this weekend from Saint John - so Mark could run the Ottawa marathon!!! He did fantastic - especially considering the hot weather - and came in UNDER four hours. What a stellar job for his FIRST marathon. We all went downtown to cheer him on!! Peter and David say "way to go uncle Mark"!!!!!

Preggo Lauren meets her hubby at the finish line!!

. . . and poses for a picture :-)

We all find some shade after the race to sit for a few minutes.
There I am with the big runner!!

Peter says he will run the marathon next year!!

Awwwww . . . happy sisters :-)
David missed some of the big day . . . he says he will wait a few years before taking on the marathon!!


Pete was a bit hesitant to break out the shorts this spring - he fought it and wore this over the weekend!!
Sits for a drink with aunt Lauren on the step - Rudy looks on enviously from the window . . .

Shan and Lauren - first time ever Shan weighs LESS than Lauren ;-)

Lounging on the long weekend . . .

Our May long weekend was fairly rainy and cold . . . and since we all just got over the stomach flu, this picture shows a lot of what we did over the weekend - lounge around!!!

New scrapbook pages

I've finally added a few more scrapbook pages that I've worked on recently . . . I keep saying I'm finished with Peter's album and will be starting David's but I keep finding "just a few more photos"!!!

A few new cards . . .

Here are some new cards I've made recently - some of the pictures aren't great but it's the best I could do!!!




A Springtime Update!!

Whew! We've been busy and it's been hard to update the blog lately! David turned six months old on April 28th and weighs 15 lbs, 15 oz and is 27 inches long!! He can sit up by himself and is trying to crawl (with no luck yet, I'm afraid!). Peter is doing well and talking in sentences, sounds like a 10 year old some days.

We had a nice visit with my mom, Nana, while Paul went to California on business for a week. She was a great help to me with my two busy boys, and she and Brigid babysat them both while Paul and I went away to a wedding early in the month. Thankfully, David now takes a bottle regularly! That makes a lot of things a lot easier on all of us :-)

I'm heading out of town tomorrow just overnight to visit a friend and go to her baby shower. I'm very nervous to leave Peter as he has major separation anxiety lately. I know it will be a great experience for both Paul and Peter (and me, for that matter), but it will be hard for me all the same. Wish us all good luck!

We had a lovely Mother's Day last weekend . . . Paul made flinchies for me and Brigid and they were delicious. We went to Bruce Pit for a hike with the dog and then had a yummy curry supper at Brigid's house.

All four of us are just getting over a nasty stomach flu - way too much throwing up took place around here the past few days. Thank goodness we're all doing a bit better now!

Here are a few recent pictures (I'll have more soon once the rain subsides around here):

Here is David in a new t-shirt sent to us from a member of my I-Village message board - thanks Alicia :-) I think I'll have to visit Quakertown, PA now!!!


Here is Peter being camera-shy as he is so often lately . . . tried to catch him in a cute outfit getting ready for a birthday party!!

Too sleepy guys who just got out of bed in the morning!! And one still sleeping behind them :-)

Peter playing the fool at mealtime . . . again!! Modeling his new Roots t-shirt his Nana bought him while she was visiting . . . David has a matching one too!

And a bedtime shot on a different day . . .


MMMMM, this stuff is yummy!!

Dinnertime is the best :-) Wish I could get my paws on that spoon . . .

The beautiful flowers I received for Mother's Day . . . and a gift certificate for a pedicure from Brigid and Peter and David!! That will be put to good use :-)
