Some words

Hello! Hmmm... I thought I was busy BEFORE I was driving to Halifax every weekend to work! (Imagine what I'll be saying when the new baby arrives!) Griffin and I have been filling our days every which way we can. Now that the hot weather has arrived, we've been consuming a lot of popsicles (pink lemonade are the clear winner so far) and ice cream cones. Eating an ice cream cone is still a full-body experience for the little guy, but it does seem to add to the enjoyment. I haven't tried it yet, but it could happen, by the end of the summer... you never know!

Today we went raspberry picking for the first time this season, after hanging out in the playground for most of the morning. It's been so much fun watching people enjoy the playground, and use it as a gathering place. Next time I get around to sizing some photos, I'll do a playground update, as we've had some good developments there.

We've been sad to watch some good friends move away, but comforted by the knowledge that we will see them again (and we now have somewhere to stay in the Bahamas any time we like - guess where we're hoping to be some time next winter?) Griffin's other little best friend is moving to Lequille - about 25 minutes down the road. It seems far when we are used to just popping in to their house as we pass by on a walk. We'll just have to get in the car once in a while. And maybe try and meet some new friends. They're out there, I know they are!

We'll be spending the whole of next week in Halifax, visiting Griffin's Grandma and Grandpa, the beaches, a museum or two, and a bookstore or three. Plus, two weddings and a newborn session - busy times three!
Some other words to capture our last couple of weeks:
  • strawberries (everywhere!)
  • geocaching
  • bug bites
  • Happy Canada Day!
  • sleep?
  • cows
  • farmer's market
  • driving in the car
  • ultrasound
  • healthy baby!
  • sleep?
