A pool, popsicles, and pop music… Michael Jackson, at their request (can’t say I was disappointed)!
It was another beauty of a day! Work outside this morning, swimming and supper with friends… it was a warm fuzzy one!
Yesterday we headed downtown for something a little different.
We all love the market, especially before the summer crowds get too big. We all said how the market is a nice place to be because everyone seems to be in a good mood.
… and cookies are a great treat!
It was the 150th anniversary of the public gardens so we went there for a picnic lunch. We have been there for other celebrations and it’s always a good time – live music, treats for the kids, period costumes, and the prettiest setting.
It was finally one of those beautiful summer days we have all been waiting for. Sitting there on the grass was so lovely!
We topped off a lovely day with a lovely afternoon in the pool!
A couple of weeks ago, on a Saturday, the sun decided to come out and we headed to one of our favorite spots to hike – the high head trail. This time, the boys and I started on the other end of the 4 km trail, the end we’ve never seen, while Brian and I started at the other end so we could meet in the middle.
It was breezy and cool but this place forces you to pause and take a deep breath and soak it in.
The waves crashing on the shore, the rocky landscape, the sun sparkling off the water… it’s just breathtaking.We packed a picnic lunch and the boys picked here to eat it.
This little beauty is getting better at hiking on her own… she loves our walks!
I could hang out here all day. No wonder we keep going back!
On Easter Monday the kids and I filled the afternoon by going to the beach and to the park. It was a nice day to get the toes in the sand even if the breeze and water temp is still very “spring-y”.
This is becoming my new favorite spot!
The boys and I went to pockwock falls in the winter, but this time we took daddy and eleanor too because the trail in was mostly clear of snow. And this time there was a ton of water coming over the falls! It was a warm day so we packed a picnic lunch and hung out for a while! The only thing better than a picnic lunch is a picnic lunch in a hammock!
The only thing better than a picnic lunch in a hammock is having a picnic lunch and sharing a hammock!
And the only thing better than a picnic lunch in a shared hammock is a picnic lunch in a shared hammock with fruit loops!!
This time we followed the path upstream a bit. I love these woods – mossy and big boulders. I’d love to bring a fishing rod back here soon!
It has been looking like spring around here (well, until the last day or two where it is around 0 degrees again). A couple of weeks ago, on an afternoon sunny enough and warm enough to make the water run, we took to the SMB trail for a little walk (and geocaching of course).
We told Eleanor that this was “old man’s beard” and she had to try it out herself!
Putting a stick in one end of a culvert to see it float through the other… who didn’t do that as a kid?!
The kids were in super silly form!
I guess Emery was feeling very ninja-ish on this particular walk!
Here’s to more warm spring weather!
