This week Cassidy and Aidan started swimming lessons. Tuesday we also got the chance to head out to Splash Island in Portage la Prarie and met up with Nori Milton and her kids and Christy Klassen and her kiddos. They were both friends from back in my Brandon years and we had a moms group together when our first baby boys were born. It was good to catch up, Nori and her kids had traveled all the way from BC and we hadn't seen them for about 2 years. It didn't take the kids long to warm up to each other and had a blast swimming. Aidan and Cassidy really became attached to the waterslide and it was nice to be able to sit back and watch them go up and down themselves, rather then dragging them up myself. Liam on the other hand was rather upset that he was too short to go down alone. Cassidy going down. This is the best picture I got of Aidan going down. I kept missing him because I was chatting too much!!
Here are a few pics of all the kiddos, wow has our old thursday moms group grown in the last 6 years, and we are missing some!
Thursday after swimming lessons, I took the kids to Harborview park, which is about a 5 minute drive from our place. They used to have this cool wooden pirate ship playground but I was doing family portraits for a family there in the evening and I wanted to check it out and warned the kids that they were taking down the old park. Much to my surprise, they had built a new park which was amazing. It was ships in an ocean, complete with lighthouse. The kids loved it and it was good to find a new place for us to go
It is now the weekend and we stuck around here for it. It has been nice to not have any plans for once. Steve has been opening up the wall from the living room to the kitchen. He finished opening it up today and just need to do the finishing work. It took alot longer then planned because he had to do some electrical work but it will look great when all done. Next plan, do something with those ugly kitchen cupboards!
