YYC Adventures!

Fast trains.
Big adventures.

We often ride the train just for fun.  Cheap entertainment!
Every part of riding the Ctrain is fun to Bean.  
It's a wonder to watch him soak it all up.  No cares in the world.

His favorite part is always "clunkin" the ticket.  He will "clunk it" four or five times.

EVERY time we ride the train we have a serious talk about respecting the yellow line.
Safety first big time on this train.

The waiting huts have heaters.

Riding the Ctrain during non peak hours makes it tolerable.
He sees things on there that I suppose many children don't have the opportunity to see.
I soak up the moments.  One day he'll be riding it without me to school.  SNIFF!
I already know those days are coming too fast.

Happy Wednesday!

Ski Bums!

How does one stop the clock?!
Seems like days and weeks are zooming by.
Does having children do this to us?

Thanks D for the photos from last weekend!
2 of me!? I had to post….

Please don't pinch me...

If this is all a dream… LET ME SNOOZE!

Crazy in love with this little mug.  
I'm starting to see so much personality and pick out family traits galore.
That crooked grin in the photo above is EXACTLY like my Mom's!

I've discovered a few tiny secrets to getting a smile out of our little love.
She's smiling a lot these days.  We all smile back.  Such a happy wee one.

Open mouth sleeps.  Heavy snores.  Just like Dad!

THIS is a mini ME!!

Baby girl I love you so much.
Where have you been all my life!!!

Let it snow...

and snow and snow and snooooooow…

We bailed on the errands we had to do and focused on our snowflake catching, snowball making, and snow shovelling skills.
Let's just say our skills are polished.

The hot chocolate afterwards was worth the work.

Hello Winter.
We hear you loud and clear.

At the Dentist!

It was like the waiting area was made especially for him.
Farm, diggers, dump trucks, and all of the colours of his bedroom.

Yesterday marked another milestone... Bean's first Dentist visit.
This picture makes him look like he was a bit nervous, but honestly….

They really treated him like a Rock Star!

And we didn't leave empty handed.
New brush, stickers and a toy.  Everyone in the office passed along high fives!
What a positive experience.

For Calgary peeps.  I highly recommend Dr. Warren Leoppky. The 2-3 month wait you'll have to get into an appointment will be well worth it for your kiddos.   His staff is wonderful.

Baby Anna LOVE!

Exactly one month ago this little critter changed our lives.

I am so proud of my Mumma accomplishments. Both of our wee loves have shown us incredible places, lessons, strengths, and fears!
Children are little miracle teachers.

Happy ONE MONTH to our baby Anna!
