I'm glad I captured it. I looked through last years album, and that's always inspiring. So who knows, maybe I will just create something for this years week in the life after all. Because now I've got all my photos recorded and the words behind the pictures...
Today was not a day that we could all hang around together. It was a beautiful morning. I was enjoying my coffee on our deck in the sunshine, Miss Libby was enjoying the warm sun, and the boys were getting ready to meet up with the Scouts and go river rafting. They left around 9 am.
Boys getting ready to set afloat. They boated from Bowness Park, down to Shouldice Park.
Madelyn had her last 'spring ring' session, she's played for the last 6 weeks, they do a half hour of drills and and a half hour of scrimmage. There were 6 girls from her team that participated. It was a nice way to end off the season, while keeping her on her skates a little while longer.
After ringette, our plan was to head to Bowness Park, to meet up with the boys. However, Barry called and said 'DO NOT COME'. The day was gorgeous, and apparently, everyone had the same idea to go to Bowness to enjoy the day. We were going, because it was the Scout 'swim up'. Beavers moving to Cubs, Cubs moving to Scouts, Scouts moving to Venturers etc. So, being told not to come, suddenly gave us a bit of freedom.
Mad asked if we could go to Menchie's... Which was ironic, as yesterday I took Mason. I agreed, and said, 'this is our little secret'.
Mad's is on the left, she knows how to do it. Vanilla yogurt, sprinkles, coloured chips, cookie dough bits, mini M&M's and brownie chunks. Mine is on the right, butter pecan yogurt, cookie dough chunks, Reece's chopped up PB cups, sprinkles and coconut. [Regretted the coconut after my first bite] I don't often 'change it up' but the butter pecan flavour was delish.
We got home, and decided to take Miss Libby for a walk. Madelyn wanted to look for garter snakes. So she got all her needed supplies and away we went to Split Rock.
When we were getting ready to head home, Bar texted me that they were heading home.
As were we. Libby is exhausted for the ride home.
Today I collected all the of the stuffed animals Libby brings us [she sneaks them out of Madelyn's room, if her bedroom door isn't shut. You can perhaps surmise, she often forgets to close her bedroom door] Libby comes downstairs, very proud of herself. Every single time. Obviously Libby has some kind of fascination with the ones that have the large eyes.
We grilled steaks for dinner and had salad. The evening was lovely. Suddenly Madelyn heard the ice cream truck. She patiently waited and waited, until, it headed down our street...
There's a look at my photos + words for Sunday, and I'm really glad I documented them. I knew I would be.
