A Review of the Weekend

The roast is sitting in the oven.  My knees are killing me from all the running around this weekend.  I am surprised that I only downloaded 87 photos - it seems like it was a 1000 photo weekend.  It really was a great weekend.

Friday was a professional day.  And one good thing about Chris being off work - we don't need to figure out what to do with Braydon on a professional day.  They had an awesome father / son day.  Started off walking the dog, then heading out to deep cove to do some exploring, then they went for a bike ride to get a slurpee.  Braydon's eyes were FULL of happiness by the time I got home.

Saturday morning, ball was early.  But still, we weren't done till noon.  After lunch, the kids and I went to Maplewood Farms with my parents.  The sun was shining and there were some really cute little new babies around.  Including some lambs that must have only been a couple of days old.  This little guy was my fav.

And while I did have full intention of getting a nice photo of my parents and my kids - that did not happen.  Guess the best shots are never planned.

There was lots more playing after the farm - hockey, playground, running around.  Dinner was  a disaster (undercooked the meat big time), but all in all it was still a good night.  We have now officially caught up on 9 million hours of Celebrity Apprentice.

Sunday the kids painted birthday presents for Nana and Papa.  Their birthdays were actually a couple of weeks ago, and we are late.  But this was the first chance that we would have seen them.  Kaylee made Papa a frame (which we added a pic of the kids) and Braydon painted a flower pot for Nana (which we added a potted flower).  I honestly don't there there are two people who love my kids as much as their great grandparents.  They love them beyond bits.

Before heading to Nana and Papa's - we decided to go to Science World.  This is the first time we went as a family, and I have to say it's SO much easier with two parents as each kid always wants to do something different.  What was really cool was seeing Chris try everything and checking it all out.  

The current display is their Lego world.  Um, these people can make amazing things out of lego!!  WOW.  

After our visit with Nana and Papa, we went house hunting for fun.  There are two places across the street from us, and one down the road.  Oh if only we had money.  Actually one place I loved, but it was only a two bedroom.  Oh well.

Ok, need to make dinner, then it's bath night and Braydon needs his hair cut.
