Mom and Max at the grounds of McLean House in Toronto where we toured the Junior League Showhouse
Oh what fun we had with my mom here this past week! I think that she was amazed to see how much Max had grown since Easter. When my mom came to visit last time Max was only a week old - we were very much house bound and learning the ropes as new parents. We have come a long way in just a few months and Max is pretty game for getting out and about now. We were off to fabric stores, shopping on Queen St, lunch dates with friends, a tour of the Junior League Show Home and many stops at Tim Horton's for their new iced coffee's - which we learned on trip # 3 that they are made with cream, NOT 2% milk which we had so naively assumed! eeek!

Mom is always up for a project when she visits and I am all too happy to have her make lovely things with my sewing machine! It has been far too long since I have sewed and I think I best ease in by watching over her shoulder! Roman blinds were at the top of my list this time, so mom did a quick study online and rigged up the most lovely blinds one for the dining room, kitchen and bathroom. She has reassured me that they are very easy to do and I could surely take on a few for myself...I may give it a go at some point...oh but she is just so much faster, and better...perhaps they won't be done by next visit and she could pick up the slack??!! tee hee!
We also put up the adorable alphabet decal in Max's room that was sent from Katrina.
we had to get that blue 'M' on there just right...
Oh how the week flew by! Thank you mom for all of your help and for the lovely visit - we can't wait to get home in July!
