RG's May 2-4 Weekend





We had a lovely weekend up North, and pretty much have our summer holidays planned. Love it! It's funny how the cold weather made us plan such a warm holiday. Didn't matter where so much as the temperature, ha ha.

An evening with Liam

Tonight Auntie Kathryn and Uncle Jeff have tickets to see Celtic Woman so we have the pleasure of Liam's company all night :o) Needless to say my boys were super excited and were fighting over whose bedroom he will sleep in. I'm sure all three of them will be in Alex's room - no one wants to be left out.

We started with dinner and once the sky cleared up from our thundershowers and it dried up a bit Liam, Alex and I headed out for a stroll around Prestwick Pond.

Here's Alex and Liam: And again:

And Liam pointing up to the airplane - he's super excited to pick up Grandma Liz at the airport tomorrow!
Alex and Liam making silly faces. Of course they both wouldn't make their silly face at the same time:

One of many ducks we seen at the pond:

And a short video of Alex and Liam:

They were so stinking cute together!!! It was a very leisurely stroll, no agenda, no rush and we stopped for each and every bump in the sidewalk or crack in the road to stop and investigate.
I'm sure there will be a part two of our evening added tomorrow night.
Happy Date Night Kathryn and Jeff - Liam's in good hands :o)

To be half as wise as the insightful Maya Angelou


Read to the end, you will laugh just picturing it happening.
I love the thoughts she lives by!!!
I didn't break the elastic...


Don't break the elastic!
In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday.. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.
And, there on television, she said it was 'exciting...'

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day.....like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:
'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'

'I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.'

'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'

'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'

'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'

'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn..'

'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'

Please send this to five phenomenal women today... and back to me if you think I'm one also. If you do, something good will happen: You will boost another woman's self-esteem..

If you don't....the elastic will break and your underpants will fall down around your ankles!

Believe me, I didn't take any chances on MY elastic breaking.....
I sent it to a lot of special women I care for...

It's gonna be a busy week!

Stay tuned for pics of my summer highlights. They are done and are subtle but I'm currently rocking the purple forehead look at the moment. I refuse to try the home remedy of scrubbing it off with Comet so you'll just have to wait until tomorrow and hopefully it will have worn off it's vividness by then.

Heather and Jon are coming to visit this week so we've got a photo shoot booked for Saturday for the g'parents and g'kids and also the cousins together. They all have somewhat matching shirts, same colour but different looks. I think it will be awesome!

We're also prepping for JT's First Communion. Just a small gathering afterwards at Chateau Beck for a late dinner and strawberry shortcake.

Note to self: order strawberry shortcake for Saturday

Today was JT's first baseball practise and Coach Aaron's first try at coaching and it was fabulous. It's going to be a great season!

Catch up with you tomorrow!
