Terepocki Toy Loan

Whenever Finn is lucky enough to get downstairs, he is totally in a zone for 20-30 minutes if he finds Iris and Hazel's "old" Fisher Price people/house/bus. The Terepockis are packing to leave today for the summer in Nelson. We'd rather have them than their toys! But Finn is thrilled to play with them for sure. (After they left, he started asking: "Hazel? Gone: car, Mrs. Cathy's car. Iris? Gone. Drive away..." :( Awww!)

On a more materialistic note, if any of you ever find any vintage Fisher Price little people toys (barn, camper, house, A-frame, bus, etc.), please pick it up for us!! You would be most gratefully reimbursed. :)

As for the toque, he selected this particular one a while ago from the winter clothes storage bin before it was put away and repeatedly dons it throughout the day.

Cabin Beach-Park

Finn survived his second canoe ride (this time to the beach) remarkably well - although his Papa did all the paddling because Mama was on full Finn-duty. Canoes are tippy! And little boys wily!

Finn's first "ride" on a big-boy (not infant-seat) swing!

Kinsmen Park Saskatoon

Chris and Cathy met us at this local downtown park and we enjoyed spending a wee visit with them Sunday afternoon. On the carosel, Finn preferred the stationary deer to the moving carosel horses. But he still talks about it, " "Member? Deer? Merry-go-round?"! Best $1 we've spent all week!

The train was a big hit, too. Afterwards, all we heard was "Again? Again?". Temporary tears ensued when he heard that we'd have to come back sometime. Which we will :)

At Grandpa and Grandma K's

New Dresses

It was Iris' birthday yesterday so she got her pink dress and we waited a day to give Hazel hers - this morning. It was a miraculously warm day, so they both wore them to daycare and Chris drove them in the Chariot - two peas in a pod - or princesses in their carriage? Darling.

Chris told us later that when (usually more reserved) Hazel arrived at daycare, she spread her skirt and shouted, "LOOK AT MY NEW DRESS!"

Bread and Bunnies

Witness the daily morning routine:

"Bread! Bagel! Waffle! Pita! Toast! Cancake!" are used interchangeably in the hopes of acquiring any type of morning carbohydrate...
