Swimming up to the bar for a glass of watermelon juice… Sitting in the lounger eating crackers… Enjoying long, full days with the whole family… Cracking up at one of your friend’s jokes… Life is gooooooooood.
Blake and I spent the morning at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. It was close, small and inexpensive so I forked over the extra 30c for a train ride. Blake really liked the train ride. A LOT. He would exit the train, look at the animals for 20 seconds and then rush back to his … Continue reading

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights last week I searched everywhere for my smaller sauce pans. One day I reheated a can of Campbells Tomato soup in a chili pot. I changed plans two nights and searched every cupboard in the kitchen, laundry room and anywhere else I could think of it. I finally thought to … Continue reading
Blake is in love with the photocopiers at our school. I’m a little in love with them myself – they are amazing! He loves to press the buttons and see the papers come out.
