Canada Day and Other Stories

Canada Day was a really fun day! At first I was a little bummed to find out that Marko had to work for the morning but, once we got a plan together it really went well. We went with Marko out to his office, dropped him off and then headed off to King's Castle Provincial Park. The kids had a hoot running from one thing to another. There was so much to do, Sean hardly knew where to begin. Poor Emma-Lyn got eaten up by the flies but that didn't stop her from having a great time!

After that we picked up Auntie Bernie and headed to Cardigan for the Canada Parade. Sean was ecstatic! We realized that our kids are definietly parade rookies. When I showed Sean the piece of candy that was thrown to him, he picked it up and promptly threw it back!! Too funny! Emma-Lyn also enjoyed the parade and the free freezies! We dropped Auntie Bernie back at her place then picked up Daddy to go have lunch at Gillis'. It was sooo yummy!

We trucked back into Charlottetown for the BBQ at Mike and Nancy's. The kids had a great time playing in the yard and with our friends Kevin and Stephanie! The kids slept soundly that night!!

Yesterday I had another dr's appointment and all went well! :) Oh, and now since all the folks know we've decided to let the whole world know (or at least those parts of it that are interested) that we are having a.....BOY!! :) Apparently quite a few people were guessing that was what we were having.

Marko' mom came home last night and Sean has been so delighted to have her home! :) Sean was so cute last night. He enjoys praying at bedtime and last night he prayed that God would have a happy Father's day...okay so the timing is a bit off..but how cute is that? Emma-Lyn was also cute the other morning...she found the toilet paper and tore a wee bit off and proceeded to attempt to wipe her diaper covered bum...after which she managed to lodge a bit up there and wandered around with her new "tail" Too funny!

Tomorrow we're off to the mainland. My grandmother ( we called her Beppe...Friesan for grandmother) passed away on Tuesday and the visitation is tomorrow. Marko and I are going over and Grammy is going to look after the kiddos while we are away. We're going to stay overnight and do what we can to help out. Beppe would have been 92 in October. I'm looking forward to seeing my family and visiting with friends of Beppe's.

Fun on the merry-go-round at King's Castle.

And Sean's favourite part of the parade!! :)
