remy’s birthday photography

Nearly one month ago, we celebrated Remy turning three. I decided that I wanted to throw her a big party this year, given that last year’s party didn’t go as planned. I had originally booked a room at an indoor playground for her second birthday, but my side of the family were fighting with one another and were threatening not to come in order to avoid certain relatives, so I had to cancel it all to make them happy. In the end, it was such a chaotic and depressing birthday and I didn’t want that to be the case again this year. Hence a party for my best gal at one of our favourite places- the Western Development Museum.

The museum was so quiet that morning. I think there were only a few families besides our big group. We spent almost two hours running around. The kids went in and out of buildings, played on the old cars, with trains, and everything else that you could think of. When Remy wasn’t holding hands with her cousins or friend, she was getting held or chasing someone. She loved the attention and everyone there.

I had rented the Palace Theatre for the morning of March 2nd. That included a large room on the second floor, and entire balcony, and a few other little rooms that were up there. I also paid for a catered lunch. Honestly, it was the best and easiest thing ever. It was such a beautiful setting and everyone raved about the food. We had soup, wraps, sandwiches, cheese, pickles, pie, coffee, tea, juice, and more. It was very reasonably priced as well. I can’t wait to have more events there.

This and her Moonrise Kingdom party have been two of my greatest days ever. What a way to celebrate the previous year, as well as turning another year older. I love celebrating her, and getting friends and family together to do so as well. If only people could get along for the sake of a child. Hopefully in time everyone can happily coexist with one another. That would be wonderful.

my pre-birthday museum outing

western-development-museum-7western-development-museum-1My birthday falls on Wednesday this year. Rather than celebrating it on the actual day (November 23), we decided to spend one day every weekend this month going out and doing something as a family.

western-development-museum-4Last weekend, we made our annual trip to the Western Development Museum. The fact that the temperature was 16°C that day is absolutely mind blowing! It’s usually a frigid -26°C. We didn’t even wear jackets. That’s certainly a present in itself.

Walking through it feels like a true town from the Old West. I love being immersed in environments like that. To say that it’s fun is an understatement. It’s so much more than that!

western-development-museum-5There are also many other exhibits that include Winning the Prairie Gamble, the Transportation Gallery, and the Eaton’s Once Upon a Christmas holiday exhibit.

western-development-museum-9western-development-museum-6This was Remy’s first time at the WDM, and we couldn’t have asked for a better-behaved baby. She sat quietly in her stroller for over two hours as we pushed her around. She took in the sites with those big, blue eyes of hers. It wasn’t until the very end when we reached the vintage car section that she wanted out. So we lifted her up and she cooed, threw herself upside down, and did the running man for the rest of our visit. She was so happy. Then on the way home she slept.

western-development-museum-13Going there this year made it apparent just how much our lives have changed over the last few years. Geoffrey and I started going to the museum when we were dating, then again when we were married, then when I was pregnant, and now, with a baby.

western-development-museum-12This has been the best birthday ever so far, and my birthday isn’t even here yet.

Boom Town.

While it may not be the most wondrous museum in Canada, I find it to be so beautiful and so stimulating. Nothing quite satisfies my old soul like walking up and down the streets of Boom Town. I love that we can go into and explore every building that flank the ghostly streets. I also love how we can sit in the old carriages, trains, and street cars that have made up our transportation history. I feel at home in places like these; and I even came away with renovation ideas for our own historic home!

To be able to spend the day in the early 1900s made my little heart soar. I truly had the most amazing time with my husband in Boom Town. I couldn’t have wished for anything more.

Happy December, everyone!
