We celebrated the girls today with their birthday party. Literary celebrities, Elephant and Piggie, were in attendance, as were cousins, aunties and uncles, and Nanny and Grandpa. We had water balloons, some water from the sky (boo), and cake and gifts and all nice things. Happy birthdays, sweet chickadees. We love you.

And today we go to the beach! We are just a fun factory over here. We met up with Tante Cheese, Emilie, and Danny for some Lake Ontario fun. (And, yes, the kids are sitting in a toboggan. That's how a mom slides all the beach fun from far away parking lot, across sand, to waterfront spot.) Anyway, 2 moms, 7 kids, and the beach - medals of achievement are forthcoming.

Today we go to the zoo! It was just me and the kids and we headed to a small-ish zoo in Brantford, picnic and mom's strict guidelines (no running away, go to the bathroom when we're at the bathroom, and no running away) in tow. It was a fun day with crazy loud monkeys, lumbering bears, and funny lemurs (and no running away kids).

The kids triathloned today with their cousins in the Oakville Tri-Fun, just like last year. Annie participated this time and loved it. A quick swim, jump on a bike, run to the finish, and a "mirror" (... shiny medal) to celebrate - what's not to love. Good job, kiddos, this was fun.
