Playdate at the Park

Since the weather is finally nice we've been getting out to the park a lot more. Last week we met up with some friends and had a picnic.

Swinging with friends.
Norah's favourite way to ride in the swing.
This is Norah's friend. They were born just a week apart.
The big brother watches.
Pretty girl.
We love swinging!
Jacob loves pushing Norah in the swing.
I wish you could see her other eye!

New Bike for Logan

Logan outgrew his old blue bike at the end of last year so we got him a new one. He picked a red and black one as red is his favourite colour.

First time getting on.
A much better fit!
And he's off!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, Scott's mom and both our grandmas!

Today we went to London and went to church with my grandma and out for a yummy lunch. Scott made supper tonight and I even got a rest in my bed in the afternoon!

Bowling Banquet 2013

Last weekend, Logan, Scott and I attended Logan's bowling banquet. Jacob and Norah spent the afternoon at home with grandma. The banquet celebrated the year's bowling and handed out trophies and awards to many of the children.

The banquet was special this years as the lanes that Logan (and Scott) bowl at, Waterloo Lanes, will be closing this weekend. The building is leased, and the lease is up. They are looking for a new spot to have the lanes but it's still up in the air, so the future of Waterloo Lanes is still unknown.

A serious boy waiting for things to start.

The proud Daddy.
Logan bowed well this year, improving greatly on his skill from last year. He came home from the banquet with 2 trophies, 2 plaques and many more badges than this mama is excited about sewing on his shirt. 

This trophy was from the Family Twosome. Logan and Scott bowled together, as a team and their overall score won them the Father and Son category.
Logan was also the "Bowler of the Year" in his division. He was Bowler of the  Month in  January (for having the highest pins over average that month) which qualified him to bowl in Bowler of the Year tournament (just at Waterloo Lanes), which he won! This win qualified him to bowl in a tournament this weekend with kids from other bowling alleys.

Receiving his trophy for being a member of the winning team during the first half of the season.
A proud Most Improved Bowler. He improved his average by 17 points this season, ending with an average of 70. 
Pretty good year for him.
Just chilling out through the rest of the banquet.
Proud guy.
We are hopeful that he will be able to continue to bowl in Waterloo in September (with Jacob joining him!) but if that doesn't happen, he'll start the year at the lanes in Kitchener. He loves bowling!

Flashback: Easter Egg Colouring

I know. Easter was a long time ago. But we DID colour eggs. And I did take pictures!

Logan waiting patiently for his pink egg.
Jacob's blue egg.
Norah preferred to eat the eggs.
Daddy did convince her to colour them!
Working hard to fish his pink egg out of the dye.
Not sure what all the fuss is about.
This was serious work!

Flashback: First Wagon Ride!

These pictures were taken on April 6 (oops) so Norah is an experienced and almost daily wagon rider now but the first pictures were pretty cute.

Hanging on tight!
Always happy in the wagon.
Making sure Jacob is doing it right.
With Logan close behind; it's a race!
Jacob pulling; Logan pushing.
Sometimes it's a bumpy ride.
