Wedding Weekend 1

Well, the first of our two wedding this summer is over. Now that we are home and looking over our pictures, we quickly realized that having a 20 month old does not really help you to get a large amount of quality pictures. So, sorry for all of you just waiting to see the bride, you will have to wait a little longer because I currently do not have a single picture of her.

It was a fantastic weekend though. A bit crazy and full of things to do, but fun. Thursday the adults went river rafting which was a lot of fun. We were able to witness first hand the amazing strength of the tides in the Bay of Fundy. our boat was the only boat where almost everyone fell out. We proved that it is possible for the boat to be too full of water.

Friday was rehearsal and trying to get Joash to take a nap and get some sleep so he would be ready for the big show on Saturday. And Saturday was the wedding. 
 Here are some of the boys looking good in their outfits.
 The wedding location. This is called "The Peak" and it is Tiffany's favourite spot in the world. It was all trees last fall, but her family cleared the land, built a road and seeded grass. It turned out just lovely.
 Joash doing his job of taking the rings down and announcing the bride was coming.
All tired out after a big day. We are back at the hotel here and we took Joash out of the his car seat and started to take of his socks and shoes. He slept right though until we got to the diaper. A quick change and we got him into some pajama's and he was back to sleep in no time.

Now it is VBS next week and then we leave the following Wednesday for the next wedding. What a crazy summer!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
