sea of love

1.jpg 2.jpg3.jpg 4.jpg5.jpgLast weekend my husband, sister, sister’s children, and I spent the day at one of our provincial parks. The sun was out and it was a cool 23°C (73°F), but that didn’t stop the little ones from stripping down and playing on the beach. Ellie was the bravest, and spent a good few hours in the lake practicing her front and back strokes. We had a huge picnic, spent some time playing in the park, and all came away successfully burnt and tired.

Yesterday was Ellie’s 6th birthday. Similar to last weekend, we spent the day at the beach in a provincial park. However, this time we went to “Emmy’s Beach” as my niece likes to call it. It was incredibly fun, and a very different party from last year. And with good reason! So much has changed within our family over the course of one year. What didn’t change is that the people who love Ellie dropped everything and came together to spend the day with her. If only we could always get that special treatment as we grow older. Oh, to be 6 years old again.

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
