Indoor Adventure

Hugh and I have been itching to hit the Forestry Farm Zoo this spring, but the weather has been sucking. When we heard it was going to continue to be sucky on the weekend, we planned an indoor adventure with our good friends the Gates'. We packed up the kiddies and headed to the University to tour around and check out the dinosaurs. 
This was the best group shot. That is clearly not saying much. The only kid we got a good shot of was Dylan. Oh well, Kerri and I look smashing ;-)
Chris and Hugh. I do love a selfie!
Calder and Dylan
I had to include a better shot of Drew. He is a ball of cute!
Also had to include a better one of Boone - who is also a ball of cute!
The University was a great way to kill a couple of hours. We toured in through Place Riel, headed down through the tunnel and over to Thorvalson. Then through Biology and Agriculture. The kids ran, laughed and had a great time. The only thing I would do differently next time would be not to go during final exams. Oops. We had to rein the boys in a couple of times when we passed some exams. I had completely forgot it was that time of year! This weekend we might be forced to plan another indoor adventure. The weather is looking a bit on the grim side. I would love to hear your suggestions!

Happy Tuesday!

Nicknames

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…

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…
