Yesterday was one of my favourite family days in a while.
It wasn’t anything spectacular but it was all of us for the whole day, doing a bunch of little things together.
We started off by heading out to our favourite Tim Hortons, in Dartmouth Crossing, for breakfast. We all had something fairly breakfast-y, except for X, that is. He had a frosted cinnamon bun. Looked really good but also looked like we needed to place some restrictions on breakfast food for next time. Of course, X didn’t seemed too worried about the nutritional content of his meal. 😉
After that, we went to Toys R Us to ogle the Legos, and then try the boys on different-sized bicycles before hitting up Kijiji for some deals.
After that we went to Superstore for some quick groceries and then to OPEN BANK ACCOUNTS FOR THE BOYS!
They were so excited. It took way longer than expected—MANY forms for their little hands to sign—but they were quite patient, and the gentleman at PC Financial was really great keeping them interested enough in what he was doing. And now, they are proud owners of their very own bank cards. 🙂
After that, we came home and had a nice relaxing lunch on the back deck, followed by a full afternoon of yard work.
The boys were extremely helpful. I had to repair our gate, that had blown off an embarrassingly long time ago, while Tam tackled the garden and other lawn work. The boys helped me pry nails, saw wood, and screw boards into place, and helped Tam move moss from our yard over into the medicine wheel they’ve been working on.
After that, it was six o’clock. They day had flown by. So, we did the only thing happy but exhausted parents should* do: picked up Hot-and-Ready pizza from Little Caesars. 🙂
We all chowed on the “za” while the boys watched a Hot Wheels movie until bedtime.
An all-around, awesome day.
*by “should”, I mean that’s all we had the energy for. ?
