CCR Rocks

July 2, 2017

Today we painted some rocks for the neighborhood rocks club. We hid them in the park on the way to the pool this afternoon and upon inspection after our swim one had already been found!

We haven’t found any from anyone else yet – maybe we need to look harder.

There was a mini Mardi Gras parade today in our neighbourhood put on by some local Cajun families. We put on our New Orleans shirt to get into the spirit and joined in the neighbourhood fun!

Bike adventure

January 17, 2016

Our Sunday bike adventure along the neighbourhood nature paths included stops at Arbor Park to play with friends; The Italian Maid for lunch; and Papi giving us a lesson in skipping stones on the lake. Our legs are a little tired even though I did get a lift from Papi for some of the way – and if you think that’s a balancing act, my my bike was balanced on Mum’s handlebars! ~ by Rafa.

Christmas light tour

December 13, 2015

After dinner tonight we bundled up into the car for our annual neighbourhood Christmas lights tour


Checking out our neighbours light displays


Christmas themes


And blow up Santas. I’ve made it clear to Mum that we definitely need to get more lights. And blow up Santas.


Many of the magnificent displays move… but this one gave us candy canesĀ 


He told us to be good to Mum and Dad, and wished us a very Merry Christmas!! Now THAT’S what I call a winning light display.
