a day in may

We went to the RBG today and I took one million pictures, because the lilacs were so pretty, the lego was so amazing, and Annie kept holding snakes. Here they are (the pictures, not the snakes).

works of fire

We're celebrating Victoria Day! Thanks, Queen, for all that you do for us. In your honour and for our enjoyment, Uncle Binu set off these showers of sparks. All kids remained on the safety zone outlined on the driveway and much fun was had by all.

































Upon review, all these pictures look the same. But each firework was unique and brilliant.

Henry for hire

He's very good at removing dandelions, roots and all.

le garden 2017

Here we grow! (So clever.) The kids and I planted the garden today. Last year, the only thing that did really well were the beans so, this year, I planted enough to last us until 2019. If they grow like last year, they will take up about 86% of the garden... we're not much for diversifying around here.

Oh, and don't be fooled by these pictures. About 86% of our time today was spent fighting over who got to do what, crying when someone didn't get their way, not listening to anything I said, and dumping seed packets at random. BUT the garden got planted anyway and whose going to remember those fights when we're eating fresh, delicious beans? Probably everyone. But the beans will still be delicious.

mother's day

I'm a mom and I'm glad.

(I'm not very good at flying a kite, so I'm not necessarily happy about that. But the rest of the things we did today were fun.)
