So as my SIL promised her son, and her ex's daughter (she came in with her ex and his daughter as well), we went to Tam Tam's (which is held at Mount Royal every Sunday during the Montreal summer), with a picnic lunch of McDonalds (as per request of the kids). I had no issues as I was craving cheeseburger anyhow!
decided that he had to take off his shoes and play in the mud:
Then it was time for some dancing, so this really nice man gave Merlyn a music thingy (not sure what it's called) to play with. As you can see, the instrument has been modified with shakers taped on to each side:
After leaving Tam's (thank goodness for the wonderful Montreal day today, we stopped at Dairy Queen for some ice cream, which Merlyn of course got all over his face. Next stop was home, where I napped for about an hour, (headache/overtired). Then my in-law's came over for a BBQ dinner, and then we bathed the muddy and dirty Merlyn, and set him up in our den (his bed, his things) and put on some Caillou, and now he's fast asleep. Tomorrow brings a whole new day, who knows what's in store. Jamie and I just finished watching tonight's episode of Big Brother (which we taped) and I did some laundry, and now it's time for bed. Hopefully Merlyn will sleep in a bit longer these days than he used to, and tomorrow will be a nice day (calling for 40% showers) but maybe we can go swimming at my parents house.
