Ribfest 2018

The town that Mom and Dad live in hosts an annual Ribfest early in June and we have been going to this event with Mom and Dad since Hannah was a toddler.  This year Uncle Dave, Auntie Trish and their kiddos were able to go as well.  A great time was had by all!

LOL – when dusty little hands need to be wiped, why not use Mommy’s jeans?  Kallen you are a monkey.

Jump Rope for Heart 2018

One of the annual fund raisers that Hannah’s school does each June is that the children participate in Jump Rope for Heart.  Hannah has an early lunch hour of 10:50 – 11:50am which means many activities start at noon.  This works wonderfully for me as I can quickly head to her school from work at lunch and share in the activities that she’s doing.

I don’t often tell her when I’m going to do this just in case I get held up at work so it’s a special treat when I can surprise her!

Month of May–A Little Bit of This and That

As we prepared for summer Hannah and I spent some special time together getting a pedicure together.  She looked adorable in her little nail polish leggings.

For the past 2 springs the birds have built a nest on the ceiling fan above the deck in mom and dad’s back yard.

May i

Against all odds the birds laid eggs in this precarious spot.  They eventually hatched but unfortunately I didn’t get any pics of the sweet baby birds.

May g

This one makes me laugh.  I sit with Hannah when she practices piano and possibly ‘assist’ her.  LOL – I’m not sure she appreciates my help as much as I enjoy giving it! Winking smile

May j

We took a day and headed north with Nana and Papa and helped them open their trailer for the summer season.  It was our first time seeing their new room they added to the trailer.  What a beautiful addition!

Seeding the lawn.  Mommy’s big helper!

Time for spring planting.  Hannah loves to pick up the flowers she finds on the floor of the garden centre.

I receive precious notes like this all the time.  She melts my heart!!

May d

Dinner with friends – special times and a rare Mommy’s night out.

May b

When I got home she still wanted some cuddle time.  We cuddled for a bit but she just couldn’t stay awake any longer.  LOL – how can this be comfortable?

May l

Class trip to a local pioneer village.  It was such a treat to share this day with Hannah and her class in spite of the fact that it was stinkin’ hot.  It reminded me that not only did the pioneers not have AC they didn’t even have fans!  So thankful for the pampering options of 2018.

One of the extra things I’ve done at work for a number of years is to be a volunteer Fire Warden and First Aid provider.  Wouldn’t you want to be a fire warden too if you got to wear this attractive outfit?! Smile with tongue out

Early Morning Royal Wedding Celebration

Hannah and I were invited to an early morning breakfast celebration as we watched the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  We were up bright and early and as I started to get ready I popped on the TV to see how things were coming along in England.  You can imagine my surprise when a friend’s daughter was shown in the crowd on CNN!  She is teaching in London right now so after classes finished on Friday she took a couple of buses and walked close to the chapel, hoping to see portions of the wedding.  You’ll see that she sure did!!

Katie is the blonde gal with glasses and her hair pulled back in the centre of the pic.  So fun!

May 19b

Our car was in the shop this morning so my friend Carol (Katie from above’s Mom), picked us up around 6am and drove us to the wedding viewing.  We were dressed in our best pj’s and wore hats to the wedding of course. Smile  (Thanks for Hannah’s sweet hat Auntie Deb!)May 19d

The wedding viewing party dressed in our finest!

We enjoyed watching the wedding together, Face Timing Katie at various times.

I’m not sure Hannah and Payton were quite as interested in the wedding as the adults were but they had a great time crafting together.

May 19h

Breakfast was a delicious combination of English sweets and treats!

May 19fMay 19g

It was a wonderful morning of celebrations shared with friends!

Oh yah, and Katie?  Were all her travels worth it?  Um, yup!  Can you believe how close she was??  Great pic Katie!  So happy it all worked out for you to share in this amazing day and thank you for sharing your excitement with us!

My Little Fashion Designer

I never stop being amazed at Hannah’s creativity!  I can copy ideas with the best of them but coming up with things on my own is not my forte.

She came up with this fun little outfit all on her own and I was pretty impressed!
