I'm back

I have been away for the past month - way across the country.

This is little Patric who came to the airport to see me off. Healthy and happy, he is just a wonderful little baby.
Burp time.
With mama, my daughter Laila.
I was fortunate to be able to stay a bit extra to help Patric's big brother Luc celebrate his 2nd birthday.
Luc had his very first ice cream cone. It was hard to get the ice cream out when one's tongue isn't very long.
We went on walks.
We saw mule deer.

I made a total of 10 little hats to donate to the hospital.

We saw lots of cows.

I played soccer with Luc.

Luc got to play along the river.

We saw some horses when we took a trip to a place called Horsefly where...

there was still a teeny bit of snow. Luc didn't quite grasp the idea of snowballs.

We even saw a bear. Once we got into the car and drove up the road, he was gone. This was the only photo op we had of him. (click on the photo twice to enlarge it)

Luc got so comfortable going down the slide that he got to do it 'hands free.'

Did I mention the deer?
All too soon I had to leave this part of Canada and travel back home. My husband said I should skype with Luc to see if he can figure out that his mummi is on the computer screen and not there in true life.
Since I have not yet finished Patric's quilt, it will be the first thing I work on. Once it's done and delivered, I will post a photo. There are lots of things I plan on working on in the near future so stay tuned...

    Wow, that's some pusher.I've never seen one like that! Do you find the one wheel at the front makes it a bit unstable?
