06.24.10 :: 105 weeks old

Mack is 105 weeks old today!  


Since today is a Québec Holiday that we don’t really care for (since we’re Anglophone), we spent the afternoon waiting for Mackenzie to get up from his nap, then headed over to my parents house for dinner. Sean got to go in the pool with my dad’s best friend’s 2 kids, but I didn’t even bother bringing over my bathing suit. I had left the kids bathing suits over there the last time we went swimming, so they had suits there to use.

Dinner was fabulous. I got to have Lobster for the first time this summer. Oh, heaven. Don’t worry, I looked it up online, and apparently I am allowed 2 x 6 oz. servings a week while pregnant. I have Lobster probably once per summer, so I don’t eat anywhere near as much.

We had leftover birthday cake for dessert tonight, it’s the cake that just keeps going and going. Mack absolutely ate every crumb off his plate. Glad to know he liked it!  After all, it was for his birthday!


My silly boy.

Some of the flowers in the front yard are finally blooming.
No idea what they are, but they’re pretty.

These seem like standard flowers. Not sure what they are either… but it makes me want to pluck the pedals and say “He Loves Me. He Loves Me Not…” and bring me back to childhood!

When we got back, Sean wanted 5 more minutes of Caillou to watch before bed. Yeah, he didn’t make it even 2 minutes. It was late, and he was popped. It was so cute.

A friend of mine sent me this video. It’s pretty funny. We’re looking into a mini-van and they thought I’d get a kick out of this video. Well, I did. And I want to share it with you.

ps- Just a reminder that I'm throwing a contest for this entire month! Details are here. I’ve rounded up a few more prizes. Here’s a list of everything that will be given away on Tuesday so far (working on a few more surprises):

I might have a few more surprises, so keep on commenting to win!

I am pretty sure the first flower is a Stella D'Oro Day Lily, and the second one is a daisy (likely a chrysamthemum variety as it looks too large to be a common wild one) -- Lilies and daisies are my favorite flowers -- I had yellow lilies and daisies in my wedding bouquet :)

the second flower is definitely the he loves me - he loves me not daisy.
lobster is such great food, I haven't had any yet this year. now I'll be thinking about it all evening I think...

I think how you measure weeks of life for your children is so neat! What a great idea!

How fun that you are having a contest! :)

Awe so I missed some fun with my family! Oh well! Looks like it was a fun day for you guys!

oooh love the white flower! So pretty! I too have been having fun taking pictures of flowers in my neighbours garden! Mark plans to build some unistone thing out back and then I will need some gardening tips.
