Our California vacation is becoming a distant memory so it was nice to go over to #3's house this morning and look at some pictures that SIL took. I only had Finn this morning so he enjoyed his social time. And I enjoyed my visit with #3.......I know that I see her all the time but we really don't have a lot of chances to actually talk. Always so many distractions.....it was so nice as we were able to have a conversation.

Well, that weekend went by incredibly fast! They usually do, but this last one just seems to have gone by faster than others. We went out for dinner and shopping on Friday night with Miracle #4. We went to one of our favourite toy stores and he was impressed. He even sat down with a couple of Star Wars characters so I could take his picture.

My favourite grandson had a lacrosse game at noon and it was so sunny and warm. I just looked at my weather app and it is currently 17 degrees outside. It was probably closer to 13 or 14 degrees at noon, but it sure is a nice day to be outdoors.

We celebrated two very special boys tonight, because Lucas turned 7 today and Isaac turned 4 on Tuesday. My niece had their family party this evening and it was stupendous.
Here are the birthday boys opening their presents. My sister took these pictures and shared them with me. Thanks so much to my sister Katherine!
Isaac was listening to what his Mom was telling him.
Happy 4th Birthday!
Happy 7th Birthday!
Yes, he really did have a poop party. Because it's his favourite word right now and just seems so 'four year old boy.' I love his cupcakes, and his t-shirt.....they were really cute! I chuckled at Baby as she wanted no part of a poop cupcake. She waited very patiently for Lucas's Star Wars birthday cake to be cut!
Making his wish and getting ready to blow out his candles!

The sun is back today and it is only 11 degrees but we won't complain. It's just so nice when the sun is out!

When we went to Disneyland in 2005, the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters ride was a favourite. That was the year that we went with young adults and the friendly competition was fun. And at the end of the ride, you can email yourself a picture with your score on it. Well, I know that SIL and Grandson still had a friendly competition and the rest of us just try and shoot in the right direction.
Fast forward to 2017 and we decided while this ride was still fun, we liked the midway mania ride in California Adventure better.
Hubby ended up with a better score than us as he knows what to do. All of the other pictures were emailed to the G family, so I haven't seen them.

When Finn saw that the cows were out this morning he asked if we could go look at them.
Baby came over to have a look too, and then we parted ways because she had preschool today. It was Picture Day, and she was a little bit excited. She still doesn't like the idea that her Mommy leaves her, but she is really enjoying herself. No more crying, but she always voices her objection. She says to her mom at every drop-off, "You always come back." Which of course, she always does!
