Archipelago Bound

I am off on an archipelago tour today. It’s packed with snow everywhere so I am looking forward to it. I need something different to do so this should fit the bill. Pictures to follow.

Here is one from yesterday near work.

Happy Easter!

Hi everyone. We had a great Easter weekend with both of us taking Friday and Monday off (Barbie worked the morning on Monday however). We spent Monday afternoon at the museum  which was fun as we hadn’t been there in a long time. Carson had a blast at the museum as in fact it was the first time him being there since being mobile. Big moment!!

Here is a picture from Easter Sunday when the boys went to look for easter eggs and chocolate. They did pretty good considering I did my best to hide them. Carter was trying to understand how the chocolate eggs got on top of the light fixture and Connor quickly told him that bunny rabbit’s jump … duh! You can see Carson getting right into it as well. He went everywhere the boys went of course.

Carter’s easter haul!

Mommy needed to do a paternity check so in this family that requires a check on whether the person in question likes chocolate. Carson passed with flying colours.

Suddenly a hockey game broke out. Carson looks on with his Canada jersey while Carter makes a save.

And … Grammy and Grampy’s Easter package arrived on Monday so Mom you can tell the post office worked when it arrived. They loved the wind-up easter rabbits (Especially during dinner … thanks!! [just joking]) and the new Scaredy Squirrel book is a hit!!

So after all this Easter crazyness, Connor decided to make some easter eggs on Monday night. Why stop the creativity?

Carter quickly joined in of course to ensure a complete mess is made.

Happy Birthday Barbie!!

Happy Birthday Barbie!!!!

I hope you had a good day. It started pretty rough I know. Getting up every two hours or so to deal with Carter sucks but that is what we signed up for. :-) Three kids!! What were we thinking.

Anyway, we got an awesome picture of the boys with you on your big day. That makes it worthwhile doesn’t it?

Birthday Girl with the Boys!


And notice I didn’t verbally say how old you are? I will let the picture do the talking. ;-)


Quick update on everyone else.

Connor won the coveted hard hat from his hockey team (stolen from the Flames in the NHL). He had an awesome game and was easily the winner of the hard hat after the game. You can really tell he was truly proud of himself. Notice how he signed his name in red on the helmet. “#94 Connor”. Very cool.

Best Passer Hard Hat!!

How is Carson? Ah, damn cute. Nothing else to add.

Carson having fun

Oh wait, he isn’t cute when he throws things. Look at the face he is giving me. And yes, I am saying “Carson, don’t throw please. Don’t throw.” He continues with the look and then proceeds to throw whatever he has in his hand. In this case Connor’s Webkinz.

Carson having fun

Today he started to wear Carter’s Spiderman shoes. Obviously too big but he didn’t care. He stomped around the kitchen and the lower floors as it made a cool slapping noise. Carson rocks. He is quite the character!

Better go to bed … cya!

A Fafard moment

We went to the National Art Gallery today with Grammy to see the Fafard exhibit that opened yesterday. The boys were surprisingly good considering all of the ogres (sorry … I meant to say security guards) patrolling around like we were criminals. I quickly remembered why we haven’t gone to an art gallery in 4-5 years. :-(

Here is a shot of the boys as we entered the Gallery. The spider is outside and is on loan from some far-flung country if memory serves me correctly.

Boys outside the Art Gallery

Obligatory shot of the Fafard poster on the outside of the Gallery. Oh if you haven’t noticed we got smoked last night with another 25+ cms of snow. It’s beautiful out!!

Fafard Poster

Carson had a blast inside the gallery. The walk up to the permanent exhibits and the Fafard room is quite cool. This shot is taken from the ‘slope’ you see in the previous picture (right under the posters).

Carson walking up a storm!

No pictures allowed inside the exhibit unfortunately. (Reason #10 why I hate art museums. Heaven forbid we share things with the rest of the world.) Either way we were allowed by the local Stormtrooper-guard that a picture of the horse was ok.

After a pretty successful trip through the exhibit it was time to leave. Carson led the way back down the stairs!!
Go Carson Go!!

Talk to you soon.

Here Ya Go!

A hodge-podge of information for you tonight.

Let’s start with some awesome pictures that Grampy took over the last couple of days. It’s just something about the natural light streaming on to Carson that makes me smile!

Light is shining on Carson!

What a handsome guy!

More light on the subject

Here are some shots of Carter bombing down the hill last weekend. I will get a video this weekend to show how confident he is now. What a difference a couple of lessons makes.

Connor of course has to chase him down. He can’t be last you know.

Ski bum!

Finally, Connor got to play goalie on Sunday and he had a blast. They lost 6-4 but not because of Connor. He made some awesome saves; stacking the pads and flashing the leather!

A big day tomorrow as our vanity for our bathroom shows up (supposedly). Pictures as it happens for my loyal readers.
