T-Ball

Tonight Quinn was invited to play T-Ball with a friend and we jumped at the chance to take her.  She was so cute on the field, she made some more friends quickly, played with her ponytails and skipped from base to base.  She even ran and got the ball once.  Aisley watched while clinging to Mama's leg, but was happy to take Quinn's hand and go get a freezie when it was all over.

Closing out May

I love the beginning and the end of every month.  I tend to try to fill the last few days of the month with lots of little outings that are simple and fun.  I treat the new month as a celebration, it is new and fresh, I want every month to finish and start with flare.  The last few days of May were amazing, the weather was warm and we have found some new favourite things to do and places to go.

*****

Our woods are always a favourite place to be so we went for a nice long walk and explored some new areas we hadn't been before.

We made a last minute decision to grab some food and a Quilt and headed for Shirley's Bay.  It was a great picnic by the water and the girls had a blast throwing rocks and playing in the mud.  Quinn ended up going into the water past her knees and had to be stripped down to get in the car, and because of that Aisley had to be stripped down and put in the car too because what big sister does little sister does.

Aisley and I set out on a mission to find some ducks that she could feed.  We made our way to Sarsaparilla Trails in hopes of finding some and thankfully they delivered.  We also got covered in mosquito bites but hey that's the price you sometimes have to pay for adventure.

One of our new favourite things to do on Quinn's home days is going to Chapters for their free craft time.  They read a book together sing some songs then all head over to a table and do a craft.  They are very creative and fun for the kids to do, both girls get right in there and spend a long time gluing and colouring, it is magical to watch.

Here is the end of the month through Instagram on my iphone (user name dressesanddirt)

I am beyond excited for May, my sister will be coming with her family from Vancouver and Quinn will be finishing her very first year of school.  Summer is coming .... can you feel it.
