An Absolutely Glorious Weekend!!

We celebrated the Victoria Day weekend here in Canada this past weekend which meant Monday was a holiday. Our regular 'Montreal Gang' got together but with the addition of the babies this year we switched it up and met for one night in middle ground and it was great! I'm sure you're not surprised that all the pics of our time together are of the babies. Oh how our priorities have changed in such a wonderful way.

We saw a lot of this happening. The babies lined up playing but each playing individually. This happened most of the time....unless they were trying to steal one of their friend's toys when their back was turned!

Hannah also took advantage of one of her little friends leaving their sippy cup unattended. Looks like this mommy should begin looking for a sippy cup for her.

As always we had a great time with wonderful friends! How neat it was to see Hannah and Daphne playing together once again.

All too soon it was time to gather our stuff together and head home.

Hannah and I were home only a couple of hours when Sharon and I talked and she invited us to their trailer up north. I quickly took dirty clothes out of our suitcase and replaced it with some clean ones and we were on the road again. Hannah did really well, especially since this was her 2nd 2 hour drive in the same day!

A funny thing happened on our way up north. We were playing a Mickey Mouse CD when I heard her clapping. I thought she was clapping to the music but when I looked in the rear view mirror I could see her little arms stretched above her head and she was signing 'cookie'. Heh! Guess she noticed mommy was snacking on Arrowroot cookies and though she'd like one too! Of course I was only too happy to oblige! A rare treat to have a snack in the car. She also learned how to make Mickey dance to the music. Every-single-day I am amazed at what she knows and what my little sweetie can do!!

Fun at Nana and Papas! LOL~ Can you tell who was the centre of attention?

First campfire

A new treat for Nana and Hannah...sharing bottle time

Napping in her new stroller. Found this for a great price on Kijiji last week. It's great up north on the gravel roads and I know it will get lots of use this summer both at Nana and Papa's trailer as well as Grandma and Grandpa's cottage.

Taking pictures with Victoria

Meals on the deck are the best!

Playing with my travel toys

This one was taken to remind me later on how tiny my little girl really is. She can stand up between the bunks....for now!

All too soon it was time to tidy up and head home. Here she is 'helping' Nana vaccuum the trailer.

We were sorry to leave but I'm sure we'll be back there soon! Summer in Muskoka is wonderful!!


  1. She does seem to be especially bright . . .

  2. It certainly was a good time - as always!!

  3. Sigh...how we all love waking up to you and Hannah in the morning. :)
    Chick and Pea loved the time we spent together and we look forward to the next slumber party!

  4. Looks like a great time..
    LOVE IT..

  5. Looks like you had a great time! It's always great getting together with friends.

  6. Far too short a time together!

    I put on Mickey and Miss D starts to boogey in the backseat too!

    Keep smilin!

  7. Hi there Catherine, I came across your blog through M3's blog. I notice you mention muskoka...we live in Muskoka! We have a 6 year old beauty from Jiangxi province...who knows maybe we'll run into each other...if my daughter sees another Asian child she makes a beeline...so if you are bombarded in Huntsville or Port Sydney by a cutie named Tieren that's her! -Lisa V
