It’s not every year that we get to enjoy warm double digit temperatures in the second half of October. While Kristin was at work and the kids and I were hanging at home, I decided that a walk to the park was a great way to enjoy the warm fall air (while we still can). It was also a great opportunity to get some photos of the kids outside before the snow flies. As we walked (and strolled) down the street towards the crosswalk, yellow leaves periodically fell on Madelyn from the trees above. Although I thought it was a perfect scene from the movies, she would yell “NO, Leaves!” And hurl them to the ground. Well, we made it to the park and here’s some photos of how much they enjoy the playground..
Alright so admittedly it has been awhile since I have posted something. life got busy and with busy comes procrastination. Although I do have one good reason for the delay and that is Mason. Mason was born on January 7th at 12:58PM. He weighed 8 lbs 4oz. As is always the case with the addition of any new child, life has been a whirlwind for the last three weeks! Kristin and I are so very excited and blessed by the safe arrival of our son and it is pure joy watching Madelyn hug him and try to “puppy kiss” (lick) him.
For you family and friends who are supporting us from out of town, here are some “never before seen on the internet” photos of Mason during the first few days of his life.
Last week we decided to take on Edmonton’s Annual Free Admission Day (#yegFAD)– the one day per year that all of the city’s major attractions are free. I hadn’t been to a zoo since I was a child, and since we have a child we thought Madelyn may enjoy seeing all of the animals.. we were right. we were even treated to Lucy the elephant up close as she was on a walk with her handlers. Free Admission Day, you rock! Thanks Edmonton.
