Talen Family Summer Vacation 2015

Once again this summer as much of the Talen family as could gather for a little vacation. This year we decided not to go to far from home since we were only going for 3 nights, so we stayed at the Waterside Apartments in Cardigan, PE. We had wonderful weather and a wonderful time of relaxing and fun with the family.

The view out our front window when I woke up each morning.
The Waterside Apartments. There are four three-bedroom apartments in this building, so we had two as a whole family. 
Did you know Cardigan is home to Canada's Smallest Library? We of course had to visit.

 We took a bike ride as a family on the Confederation Trail to Brudenell Provincial Park.
 There was a lot of kayaking that took place as well since we had four kayaks between all of us. Joash and Mataya even got to ride along sometimes.
 We also visited 4 different play grounds during our stay. The kids loved exploring all of them and Mom like that there were lots of people to take turns pushing the kids on the swings, their favourite thing to do at a play ground.
We came back refreshed and ready for the rest of the 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.
