We spent the middle two weeks of July at my father's home in Waterloo, Ontario while he travelled to the province of Newfoundland. What great adventures we had in Waterloo! No one wanted to come home and the girls wished that Opa would stay away for another week.
|Anna (7 yrs), Holly (5.5 yrs) and Jasmine (3.5yrs) with their favourite animals.|
|Julian hits a milestone: his first pony ride!|
|Julian was quite dapper in his safari shirt!|
|Jasmine (3.5 yrs) is phenomenally coordinated. Not only is she an excellent swimmer, but this kid can handle a bicycle like a pro! We'll be taking off the training wheels by the end of the summer, I imagine.|
|She can turn corners and go up and down curbs with no difficulty.|
|After she came down the slide, she swam to the edge of the pool so fast that we all laughed and asked her if she thought an alligator was chasing her!|
Poor Holly. She felt pretty left out when we all were so excited for Anna's accomplishment. But, lucky for her, she had just achieved the required weight to move from a 5-point harness in the car to a booster seat. YAY HOLLY! (But sorry, kid. I didn't take a picture.)
