i mean - happy easter! we are just back from a whirlwind trip to shannon for easter weekend. we left after work on thursday evening and stopped off in montreal with m's cousin ck. then we got up friday morning and continued on to shannon. friday night we tried out kh's nintendo wii (which we loved - must get one!). saturday morning i went out shooting with dc - he had gotten a new large-bore rifle for going up north this summer (in case he is threatened by a polar bear) and wanted to try it out. i had not been out shooting in about 15 years, so that was a lot of fun! we blasted through a box of ammo shooting at trees and rocks down on the farm. whee!! saturday night was family dinner and hockey-watching. here are signal and his opa celebrating the defeat of the montreal canadiens (picture taken on sunday, but as you will see, they were quite thrilled):
then sunday was church, chocolate exchange, breakfast, afternoon sausage-overdose coma, then easter turkey dinner up at dk's, followed by a veritable marathon of "road hockey rumble" on outdoor life network.
here is signal with his granny (m's grandmother) and m:
and here signal shows off his easter sweater vest and button-down (thanks, oma!):
and finally, it was not all hockey! signal also discovered the joys of soccer. we were sitting on the stairs, and i was trying to distract him from being a cranky-pants by putting the ball in his hands, but all he wanted to do was lean back and work it over with his feet:
and then today, we drove back. we learned that poop really does get runnier when the baby is teething, but that is a story for another night.
