Spring has Sprung!
We had a busy and beautiful spring day yesturday. We were on our way to the Elmira maple sugar festival but the LONG line of cars was not encouraging so we took a detour and went to St. Jacobs outdoor market. We got some always wonderful market food (Mennonite baked cinnamon rolls, chip wagon french fries and homemade donuts) and Ben enjoyed all the people, sun and horse and buggies.
One of the best things about our house is the location. We live in walking distance to schools, walking trails, lots of shoping, resturaunts and parks. When we moved here we imagined walking to the park after dinner and playing there with Ben, maybe stopping for an ice cream cone at the stratigically located ice cream shop across the street. Last night we were finally able to do this! Ben loved walking there in his stroller with Bayley beside him. He laughed on the swings and enjoyed the slide with Daddy's help. He was so tired on the way home that he fell asleep in his jump seat (a attatchable seat on his jogging stroller that turns it into a double, he prefers this seat, he probably feels like he's flying).
I am looking forward to many more evenings like this in the months to come.
