Little Party For Ronan

Climbing on the Potty Train

Luca is getting more and more interested in stripping down to sit on the potty...ok ok he really just prefers to sit around without pants or a diaper but we are encouraging him to sit on the potty:

Trip to Clear Lake MB

Carter and I went on a quick trip to Winnipeg last weekend. We were lucky enough to see our good friends Charlotte and McKinley for a quick breakfast...It is always good to see them. We always seem to be able to sit down and chat like it hasn't been months since we last saw each other! Another year Carter and McK can get their own table!!
We then went out to Clear Lake with Mom to visit with family and see Uncle Gerry's Band play (along with a special guest...Elvis)

My cousins little guys and Carter.

Camping Fun!

We had a blast camping. The boys seem to love the great outdoors. Except the outhouse that Carter was mortified by. Can't blame him it was rather gross!

All set up.....Daddy gets a reward!

Carter was so excited to try roasted marshmallows......but ended up spitting it out in disgust! Weird Kid.

Happy 1st Birthday Ronan

Yesterday was Baby Ronan's 1st birthday! What a magical day it was one year ago when he came into the world! I thought about that day alot yesterday and wished I could give him a big birthday hug but it will have to wait as we are getting together next week to celebrate when Gramma is in town.

Going Campin'

We are planning our 1st camping trip with the kids this weekend. We are really excited! We bought a new tent as the one we had was simply too small for the 4 of us. We are going to Gull Lake (http://www.degraffs.com/) and spending the day Saturday at nearby Sylvan Lake at the beach and waterslides (http://www.wildrapids.com/). It's going to lots of fun............hope the kids sleep!!

Well, I had the most exciting day of golfing yesterday! Sobeys is a major sponsor of the Telus Edmonton Open (http://www.telusedmontonopen.com/headlines.html)
which is one of the tournaments stops on the Canadian Pro Tour and I got to play in the Pro-Am event! I will likely never play on a nicer course in my life! I got to ride in the cart with the professional assigned to our team and his name was Ryan Thornberry. I will definitely be watching for him once he make the PGA!

I won the prize for closest to the pin (ladies) which was a $150 gift certificate for the pro shop. I can tell you that $150 doesn't buy much! There were also pretty sweet gift bags too.

What a fun day and the weather was gorgeous! I thought about how much Nana would have got a kick out of hearing about it.
