It’s my birthday

Had a great day at the cottage today!  I ate like a queen today, thanks to the wonderful food Char brought.  We all went for a walk along Lake Erie and Annika had a “champion nap” (as James would say) hanging out in her carrier with Char.  Also got some great gifts, including a massive kiss pillow (not to be confused with the music group “Kiss”, the pillow is a giant pillow in the shape of a kiss.Can’t believe another year has come and gone…. Looking forward to seeing Mavie on Monday when Annika and I fly to Florida!!  Grandma and Grandpa are taking very good care of him, and spoiling him like crazy, I’m sure!  Super excited to be there with my fam, and pumped that we have a house sitter to take care of things when we’re gone.

Proud to be Canadian

It’s my dad’s birthday today!  Hope you have a great day dad!  We celebrated a couple nights ago at Red Lobster (one of my, and my family’s favourite restaurants).Last night was a night of celebration, not only for my dad’s birthday, but we had a Super Bowel bash, and it was David’s farewell party.  He’s driving to Arizona with his training partner, Sean, today.  They’ll be training hard for triathlon until April, when they’ll return and keep training hard until the fall.Pictures to follow later…
