my little mountain man

Just back from a camping trip at Manning Park... our first camping trip with a wee one. I was a little nervous and anticipating a lot of “me go home, me go home” type crying, but fortunately Jasper loooooooved it. Actually he proved to be quiet the little mountain man... it was mommy who found it a tad too chilly and was a bit of a baby... haha. I think I will need to brush up on my wilderness skills for future trips to come.

fuzzy little monsters

It is no secret that I like to make crafty things... so it was only a matter of time before my crafty preoccupations started influencing little Jasper's play time. But what craft to do when he is only two, and the thought of paint on the walls and carpet seemed a bit horrifying? Hurray for pompoms and google eyes! We had a fun afternoon making “fuzzy monsters” (his words by the way). Thanks to my friend Robin who had such a cute and easy idea (see her awesome blog Windy and Friends here). Hmmm... now what to do with two dozen fuzzy little monsters that keep popping up around the house....

links to more wildlife

As promised, another show-and-tell update of the new cufflinks designs this season. As a continuation of the outdoorsy theme of the last batch, these ones feature some Canadian inspired wildlife. To be honest, I have only spotted three of the four animals on this list in my lifetime (owls, squirrels and deer). I have seen a stuffed beaver at the museum, but I don't think that really counts.

a day at the farm

On the weekend, we headed out to the country, the Westham Island Herb Farm to be exact, to check out their 7th annual “A Day at the Farm” event. The highlight for me was seeing the shaggy cow... I mean, just look at him... he’s such a cutie. I would want to just brush its hair for hours. Due to it’s large size though, I think little Jasper preferred looking at the goats a lot better. Bleet.

funny faces

I spotted these funny faces on some telephone poles (to the delight of little Jasper) during one of our stroller walks in our neighbourhood. There were tons of them, actually. I like finding art in unexpected places (well, I am hoping it is art and not some weird viral marketing campaign)... I kind of wish I knew who made these. The tags were intentionally blank, but I took one anyways... it's like they wanted me to take one.

food paparazzi

This past week, Roger and I celebrated our anniversary (6 years)... which meant date night... hooray! So, during our meal, I became one of those people who takes pictures of their meals with their phone... yes, you know you've seen them, or have been one... but really, I couldn't resist. My sushi looked really yummy, so in my mind, worth sharing. Part two of our anniversary date night continues this week when we head out to see Jerry Seinfeld live! Exciting!
