"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2018"

Jackson: Enjoying some frisbee at the park. 

Lily: She joined Neil and I in the city to see Paul Simon on the first leg of his farewell tour. Prior to the concert, we spent a lovely day walking all over downtown Vancouver including a visit to Granville Island. We missed our Jackson but he opted out on this trip.

Jackson: Baseball season has begun so now rather than the cold hockey rink several times a week, we are outside at the park. Much preferred. 

Lily: Holding a freshly picked bouquet of on of my fav flowers. Lilac season is THE best!

Below, a rare photo of me and the kids on Mother's Day. This needs to happen more often.

George Bailey and Penny Lane Turn ONE

 Our sweet fur babies George Bailey and Penny Lane turned a year old May 11th. We celebrated them with a trip to the groomers for a wash/cut/blowdry/nail clip and then home for a dog treat covered in whipped cream and half a hamburger patty each. They also got a couple of new chew toys.  They are a huge part of our family and we are so happy they are in our lives. Miss Penny is very mischievous and naughty and is constantly getting into trouble. Georgie is very much like Eeyore and is as loyal as they come. I never have to look around to find George because he follows me around everywhere and boy does he know how to play it up when you are leaving the house without him. Those eyes get me every time. We had no idea we would love them like we do but also couldn't imagine life without them. They are the sweetest little brother and sister shihtmixes in all the land, in our opinion anyway.

 "a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2018"

Jackson: I've included the single picture I took of him on his own below but I thought this photo of my boy and two important men in his world was a better choice for this week. He's not the shortest anymore. 

Lily: Pictured holding her messy bed roll just after arriving for her first ever Pathfinders camp out. She was beyond excited and had the best couple days, rain and bugs included. She is really becoming so independent and I'm so proud of her.
