A busy week!

This week has just been go go go.  Almost every evening has been full; we have family in town from out west and given that we don't get to see them often, we are trying to squeeze in as much time as possible. 

Monday night we spent at home, watching the movie Death at a Funeral.  Holy smokes we laughed a lot!  It was a great way to end the day.  Monday's are always tiring.  The rest of the week is when it gets busy!

On Tuesday night we had dinner together at my father-in-law';s my 3 yr old got to spend some good time playing with his little cousin, she is 2.  We brought with us his bike as well as the trike he used to ride so she could enjoy it while she's here.  They went for a ride together, he's is so into riding his bike.  It's one of his favourite activities.  She seemed to like it too although sometimes she would get off the trike to run after him.  It was faster for her, I guess.  The two of them are so cute together, he's almost a whole head taller, but it's surprising how similar they are in terms of looks.  You can certainly tell they are related!

Wednesday evening was spent with my parents.  They haven't seen their grandson for a while so we went over there to have dinner with them, play with all of his trains (that I'm very grateful are not in my house!  there are many, and they're kind of loud) and watch how easily he manipulates them.  "Nanny you want to go for a walk on the sidewalk?" He bats his little eyelashes and boom, gets them every time!  Three desserts later and a little while later, the little rascal would not go to sleep!!  Next time I'm leaving him with his grandparents.  That'll teach 'em!

Thursday was "Girls Night" with Tristan's family.  We had a fantastic dinner at La Dolce Vita on Preston St.  What an amazing meal.  I had the linguine with shrimp, smoked salmon, and a vodka cream sauce.  Super yummy!  They have a fantastic menu with many gluten-free options which was wonderful for my sister-in-law who is allergic.    After dinner we headed to the World Exchange to see, of course, a chick flick, Eat Pray Love. 

Friday night we spent shopping at Walmart, the place was a zoo.  Back to school shopping in full swing, entire families crowded in aisles, picking out backpacks, lunch boxes, and in general making a complete mess of the store.  There was crap everywhere!

Saturday is always a busy day, library, swimming lessons, and topped off with a corn roast!  We got to the library a few minutes before it opened, so we played hide-and-seek around the school that's attached as well as had races on the grass.  At the corn roast, my 3 yr old ran around, playing football, soccer, and climbing the play structure.  He handled the soccer ball like a pro!  I'll have to look for a soccer team for him to join!  He had so much fun with his cousin again.  It was great to see them playing together and with the other kids too! 

Sunday the fun continues with a kids party with Aunt Joan and then dinner with Tristan's family before they head back to Calgary. 

This week has been mega busy, but so very enjoyable.  We're trying to pack as much fun in before the summer ends.  Goodness knows that when winter comes and the temperatures drop, our time outdoors is limited.  Why can't summer last forever?
