Checking In

It's been awhile since we've checked in. It has been another very busy few months...lord, will things ever slow down? I have moved categories at work and I am now Product Developer for TOYS! Oh my, wait until Max finds out! I headed off to China right after Easter and then almost as soon as I returned, Carmon headed home to help his family with the spring planting at the farm. Max and I were solo for about 10 days and then my mom flew in for a short visit. We had lots of fun as always and Max enjoyed playing with Grandma and of course he had lots of new tricks since he had last seen her.
We have had a very soggy spring but have been getting outside to play whenever the sky is clear. Max just loves the park and he is so independent and brave on the playground now - it is amazing to me what this two year old can do. Every day is full of surprises, funny moments, new words, silly faces and giggles. We love having this little boy in our lives.
This weekend was rather soggy again but we got out this morning and went to Port Credit for our usual Starbucks and park fix. But today there just happened to be a fundraising event at the park and there were these HUGE inflatable slides and bouncy houses all over the place!

We had a ball...until it started to rain! On the way back to the car we came across a Police car and an Ambulance - it was actually harder to pull Max away from the vehicles than the bouncy houses! A nice Police man saw the pleading look in Max's eyes as he ran over to the car, and he asked if Max wanted to sit inside...Lucky Boy!

This was Easter

That look of wonder in his little eyes! It's too much! We had such a fun day - brunch with friends and an Easter egg hunt for the little ones. William, Kylee and Max scurried all around the house searching for eggs and they had a ball.
