Great weather and busy days!

Today was a great day here in Ottawa as far as weather is concerned... hot, sunny, no wind... just perfect!

This morning we had to get Emmie off on her school bus to attend her kindergarten class. It is not a problem, as she loves the full day class, and can't wait to get there... a real keener!

After she was gone, we loaded up Charlie, Paige, and Gwenny, and headed over to a place called "Brinkeetoes". Never been to one of these, but then again, we don't have small kids anymore. In this day and age, it is a great amusement for kids, mostly under 4 or 5 years old at this place.

Of course the ball pit was a big hit! Gwenny loves playing with balls.

They had all kinds of things for the kids to get into...

Storey time, and bubble blowing were a big hit...


Of course they had "everybody pile on Pop Pop time"....

Last night Kristina got a pic with the girls...

The pool was too cold, so Charlie went swimming in the sink...

Yesterday, I trimmed up all the trees and hedges in the back yard, so today I created 9 bag of refuse! It will go out with the garbage tomorrow...

Shawn came home from the Hospital tonight, announcing that he had 5 new letters that officially follow his name right now.... those are "FRCPC", which stand for Fellow Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Canada. Who know, he may soon get appointed to the Senate, and receive an expense account! Congratulations Shawn! Excuse the shadows in the picture... it is the iPad causing it.

He has one more year left on his 3 year Fellowship in Neonatology here in Ottawa. It sure has been a long haul for him!

Emmie drew me a great picture of a candy house today...

The kids and I had a great painting and drawing party this afternoon... they were better than me!

Till tomorrow...
