Cottage Weekend

A little delayed on this post, but BJAMS had another great weekend with grampie and cha-cha, this time at grampie’s cottage.  We had adventures at Holiday Beach, seeing some birds, owls and hawks, and some time at Leamington’s awesome park and beach.  We painted and carved and cooked and danced…lots of fun!

Bye-bye cottage…

 

Nana, mommy and Selena spent this morning birthday and Christmas shopping for all the kiddies in our lives.  There is a toy warehouse that opens only for the fall/winter season that I’ve made an annual must.  We stopped for lunch at my favourite restaurant…RED LOBSTER!  Looking forward to the Run for the Cure this weekend, as always in honour of “nana from the sun” – Nana Loaring!

Kids & Dinner

Finally, all of us were able to coordinate a dinner/play date that’s been in the works for months now….  Scott, Nicole and their twins, Jasper and Carter - Miro, Coleen and Emma and BJAS had an afternoon get-together at the Tot’s and took advantage of the awesome fall-ish weather we’re having!
