Sunny weekends...

The weekend before last, our godsons and their parents came to visit. Yes, as of the end of June, we have a new godson, a brother for little Ben!

We had a wonderful visit at the farm.

And I had little Nico strapped to me for over two hours and he slept the whole time. That is surely the longest I have ever held a baby without the baby crying. Usually they start crying within 30 seconds. And this one didn't even have fur! :) I love all the baby-carrying devices they have these days.

The six of us went for a lovely walk to our back pasture and checked out the pond. We saw a frog (or two... or three!)

Ben and I were trying to encourage her to hop!

It was just one of those idyllic days. We all had fun!

And Ben checked out one of my beehives with his Maman...

...and his Daddy! Note the Ontario Beekeepers Association t-shirt.  :) Ben's mother is a francophone and his father is an anglophone. Now when Ben speaks to me, I not only have to decipher what he's saying, I have to figure out if it's French or English. Often it's half and half! Kids are amzing.

Ben wanted us to swing him really high but it wasn't until I saw this photo that I realized just how high that was. I don't think Gordon and I should be trusted with small children. In our defence, we had a death grip on him and bonus, he didn't vomit! Just kept screaming for more. :)

Then we played with the cats! Daisy and Honey were very keen (that's Honey's shadow.)

What a great way to spend a Sunday. And earlier in the day, my beekeeping mentor came over to check out bees with me. Tristan followed us partway out,  so on the way back, he got a ride in the back of the RTV...

I think this day is one that will be in my bank of memories when I'm old and grey!


  1. Perfect days are simply perfect, as you say.

  2. Looks like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday...

  3. That was a busy fun day. Kids can really make things exciting.

  4. Sounds like an awesome day. Just curious/nosy, you mentioned walking to the pond. How much land do you live on? Your place sounds so lovely. Cheers

    1. We are lucky enough to have 86 acres here! :)

  5. It looks like such a perfect day :-)


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
