It was nice to finally be able to sit in our backyard and have some privacy. Nost neighbours weren't home so that helps.
Starting from the top left is a booger picture. You can't really tell how big it is by the picture but it was impressive. The others are just fun pictures. The boy trying to be tall and Taylor being a little goof ball as usual. We love them so much. More pics to come.

On the bathing suit subject. I decided to go a different route. I got a couple of those surfer tops and bikini bottoms, and a one piece. Maybe by the end of our trip I will wear a regular bikini top but who knows. The ol body just isn't the same anymore. Up will sum it up in one word. STRETCHY. Who knew a body could stretch that much. Anyway all in all these have been a couple of great days. We are off to the city north of us. Hopefully we can hook up you Edmontonians. How's Sunday? I'll call you.

Bathing suit shopping was no a success today. We are going to try next week and go to a swimwear shop. As long as I have something by the time I go on holidays I will be happy.
Tonight I went to a jewlery/bag party at my Aunt's house. My cousin and his wife teach in China and she makes her own bags and brought jewlery to sell. It was fun. It was nice just getting together with everybody. Thanks Jenn and Auntie Beth I had a good time.
So that was our day in a nutshell. I guess we will see what tomorrow brings. lol

Both kids have been really good lately. Taylor is just as silly as she normally is. Quinten stood by himself for the first time yesterday. It was only for a few seconds. He will be walking before we know it. Other than that nothing really new has happened. I'm back at the laundry thing. Laundry sucks. Oh yeah just so everyone is clear I do not wear granny panties. I've had some comments asking if I do and no I do not. Anyway that's about it. Hopefully tomorrow is more exciting. Tomorrow is bathing suit shopping day, that could be interesting. And not in a good way. I'm alittle afraid as to how I will look. Things just aren't the same anymore since having kids. I'm used to wearing a bikini and I don't think I am quite ready for that. The stretch marks are what is killing me. I will let you all know how it went. I am taking Chris with me and I know he will be honest. So till then have a goodnight.

Today I had some errands to do and Taylor was soooo good for me. Things have been very calm around here for the last couple of days. It has been great. No yelling, tantrums, still a bit of whining but what almost 3 year old doesn't whine.
I had QuinQuin weighed and measured today. HE is 16 lbs 10 oz. and 26 " long. Okay 26" short. lol!!!! He is only 1 ounce heavier than Taylor when she was 8 months old. I have such small kids. Does that mean they will be the kid who gets picked on? I hope not. I think The Boy is destined to be shorter than his sister. I just a feeling that's all. Who knows, only time will tell.
I had one last coffee with Joy before she leaves to visit her family. I am really going to miss her. She will be gone for 6 weeks.
Well I had better Jet before blogger kicks me off. It is giving me some kind of warning and I don't want to lose my post. Later!

Today QuinQuin and I went to make his Father's day present. I can't say what it is incase Chris reads this.
Yesterday was an interesting day. Joy and I made Spring rolls and Sushi. We had a lot of fun. It was good too. I suck a rolling them. I'm no pro like Joy. I like to blame the Tronsgard shaking hands. Then last night Taylor go into the vaseline. Let me tell you, not so easy to get out. She spent today looking like a greasy mess. Hopefully it will only take a few more washes to get back to normal.
So that has been our lifes the last couple of days. Tomorrow is brace face day. That is what Chris is already calling me. I will post a picture once the fun is done.
Till then Goodnight.

Taylor is finally starting to play with Quinten. Look how nice she is being to him. Normally when he gets in her way, he gets boncked on the head. Seeing them playing together made me well up. It was such a nice moment. Man they grow up so fast.
No potty today but that is okay. She knows what is going on and in her own time it will be done. Nothing much else happened today. We went for a walk with Joy and her boys. Got Starbucks. I love coffee.
Oh I do have something new. My laundry is finally done. Just in time for it to begin again at the end of the week. What a great feeling. My house is clean and I'm trying to keep it that way. Chris is off starting tomorrow for the next 3 days. Life is good.

Jordan and Kristen went to Ben & Jerry's in Vermont and brought back the little monsters some souviners. Here are pictures for you guys( Unkie Jordan and Unkie Kristen) Taylor doesn't seem to want to call Kristen Auntie.
And another picture of The Boy caged in. he is loving to stand and I think will walk before I am ready.

I was able to do a little sunbathing this aft. Till QuinQuin woke up and was screaming at the top of his lungs. I'm sure the whole neighbourhood could hear him. Poor little guy is cutting his 5th and 6th teeth. He cut his 3rd and 4th yesterday.
Anyway because Chris is home I'm going to have some ice cream with him. Have a great friday night.

Taylor and I played out in our newly fenced in yard. We don't really have anything back there to play with so she got bored of kicking the ball pretty quick. I think she was just excited to go and run around back there. We have no plans to put up our own tent city but I think a type of lattice will be erected to block out the neighbours a bit. I hate to say that, but sometimes you want a little bit of privacy. Plus they are always looking in our yard.
The day was good. Nice and hot. And I think the night light idea is working. She was asleep pretty quick tonight and hasn't gotten up yet. Or it could be that she is really tired. Times up for me. Till I write again.
I thought I should clarify. I'm not sure if it came across that I put Quinten in the big part of the cart or what. I had him in the front part designed for kids to sit in. So I'm really not sure what those ladies were talking about. I know I'm not a bad mother even if I joke about it.
Last night I went over to Joy's to pick up my Epicure stuff. It was so exciting. I know what you're thinking. Spices, you're excited about spices? Yep. Think of all the stuff I can make.
Anyway before I bid you farwell for the day, I would like to send out a thank you to Nathan for teaching Taylor to point and laugh at me. ( This is when we need something for sarcasm). It is greatly apprectiated. Ha!
Have a wonderful warm day. Maybe I will have to take advantage of my newly fenced in yard later on.
