Well, before you could blink, things got busy again. We enjoyed the rest of holidays and then I worked 4 days last week and this week. Let's get caught up shall we?
We spent a morning at the Science Center over the break. It was fun, but unfortunately busy...daycamps and families...lots of people. Even our usual strategy of getting there as close as possible to opening time didn't work. The most fun thing? Finding this interactive exhibit in the new environment gallery. I don't know what these things are called...it's a projector that interacts with you when you walk in the projection. The object was to jump from ice floe to ice floe while they shrunk...simulating polar bears losing habitat...cute little footprints that you make as you walk over the ice. Sam could not get enough of this. (Katie and our friend W liked it too)
We have SKATERS! We tried skating on Saturday, at the indoor pond/rink at Millennium place in Sherwood Park and the girls LOVED it. It may also have been my first time on skates in maybe 20 years. How crazy is that? Aside from a little wobble (and getting past the burning pain in my high arches..."I think I remember why I haven't done this in 20 years...") I had fun too. It felt like such a healthy, Canadian thing to do!
Lessons are on a weekday at 3:00...perfect time to have down time beforehand and enough time to get ready for dinner afterwards.
Katie (and Sam) received cute dresses from Grandpa Ken and Gram Cheryl's trip to Hawaii...Katie likes the dress just a little bit, don't you think? =)
In other news...I've been meaning to mention for ages...Auntie Andrea and Uncle Sheldon are expecting a baby in April!! We are beyond excited and happy for them. I cannot wait to hug and kiss my little niece or nephew and for the girls to have a little cousin. It's going to be great. =)
