I didn't post very many Mommy Mondays this summer, but we had lots of adventures. Above is a little collage of our time. PEI twice, Ottawa, Toronto, camping and glamping, as well as little adventures around the neighbourhood.
Kieran had his first, plane, train, and bus rides this summer...not to mention a horse!!
He had so much fun, but there is nothing like coming home. I don't know why I was surprised, but anywhere we went there was always a moment or two of "Mommy can we go home now, I miss Rocky and Bobo (aka Baron)". Just so sweet.
This was also the summer of rainbows! both times we went to PEI (once for glamping the other for camping) we saw full double rainbows! Then there was another rainbow in Ottawa. Kieran is going to think these things happen all the time!
While camping in PEI, Kieran was very interested in what people were doing in the other stalls, which lead to quotes like "Who made that toot?" and "why is there a band-aid on her toe", which was then followed by me silently wrestling him to stop him from looking underneath.
Kieran was so excited for the plane to Ottawa. When the plane arrived in Saint John, Kieran was running for his bag and pushing Peter and I to the gate; he couldn't wait to get on. We first had to fly to Halifax which was a tiny plane, so Kieran got to talk to the pilot before take off and got to see the controls the whole flight from his seat. He was also pretty excited for the train to Toronto.
While in Ottawa, Uncle Jon took us to the Natural History Museum. It was amazing. I could not get a single picture of Kieran that wasn't blurry because he was looking and running around so much. So much to see and do there: dinosaurs, bugs, birds, mammals...loved it!
In Toronto we did the zoo from 11:00-3:30 and still didn't see it all. Kieran's favourite was the giraffes and the pandas.
Last week our side yard had some construction done and Kieran was very excited to see some of the trucks. In fact he caught me working on my video and wanted to make one too. So Kieran has his first vlog-which is adorable. We also during the vlog discovered a hornets nest... You can see the video below.
Even though this summer went by too fast, and I am back at work, we made some great family memories.
