Its a bird, Its a plane . . .

Tonight we reinforced that some of our best times are just those spent with good company. . .

Dylan called Calder tonight and asked if he wanted to go to the park. Calder promptly started yelling, "I want to go to Dylan's! I want to go to Dylan's!" Dylan then promptly got sad when his dad suggested  to him that Calder and I come over for a visit instead (Hugh's school had a skate night). Dylan was psyched to head to the park and I didn't blame him. It was a gorgeous evening. It didn't take much convincing on my end to get Calder to the park. He would go anywhere if Dylan was going.

When we arrived at the park, it was like a scene from a movie - well, almost. The boys spotted each other when they were about 150 m apart. Dylan started running towards us. Calder saw this and took 2 hard steps to start running toward Dylan and  -  fell flat on his face! He looked like Superman, but instead of flying through the air, he was laid out on the sidewalk! Calder quickly scrambled to his feet and got racing towards Dylan. There was NO time to be hurt.

It was picturesque. The boys arrived at the bridge by Tripp's bench at the same time. They glanced towards one another.

And they didn't even slow down.

They both ran right past each other at full tilt!

Drew and Kerri
Chris found some cardboard. The boys would have slide down the hill on it all night!
Can you see Calder?
Need a bigger challenge? Can you see Dylan?

I took our point and shoot camera that I haven't used in 2 years. I didn't use a flash, because with the evening light I wouldn't have with my DSLR. The last shot of Dylan and Drew is the only one that is good quality. I will have to remember that the point and shoot needs LOTS of light or a flash! Next time.


  1. Can't believe how little snow you guys have! WOW! I have not seen grass here since the end of looks like a fun evening, it is so nice that the days are getting longer!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
