It's been non-stop since we got back from our family vacation. Has it been 3 weeks already!!! Take me back to the beach! 

I even forgot to do a 7 month post for baby M! I'll just wait for the 15th and do a 8 month post :) 

What have we been up to in the last 3 weeks... 

Many sushi dates with the boys :)
Little k asks us weekly to go out for sushi! 

Baby m is eating a lot these days and perfected the pincer grip! 

My boys love to eat! 

So do I ha! But I'm trying very hard to watch what I eat and exercise a couple times a week. Although, it gets tough when the kids get sick with the flu. Tired mommy makes for lazy eating junk food. But we are 7 months postpartum and 7 pounds away from pre-preg weight. 

Okok back to the kids.
We put foam Mats down in the upstairs playroom. Baby m is crawling all over and trying to lift himself to stand! 

Easter was a lot of fun with family. 

The kids had an Easter egg hunt. They got so many easter gifts too, no shortage of chocolate here. 

Total cuteness right here. I can't handle his squishy body.

My niece turned 3 last week. She loved her princess party. She's a little princess. 

Ha! How cute is that pic. My boys are surrounded by princesses! 

Both kids were under the weather last week so we didn't do much! 

Just a lot of family time and snuggles for these boys. 

Yesterday we had 2 birthday parties. K's friend's bday and a family party. My godfathers 60th birthday! 
It was a surprise party, which was so much fun! 

I've been absolutely loving my time home with my boys. We have just 4 months left of maternity leave. Mommy won't be around full time anymore :( it makes me so sad! I'm so lucky to have had this time off. Especially with little k in school. I think he really enjoys having me pick him up and there for his every need. 

So we are trying different things that can help us have as much time with our boys as we can when it's  back  to work. Things like walmart grocery pickup that we just tried today. It Was great! I ordered online then went to walmart, called them and they came out to my car with my groceries! How great is this! The kids were happy in the car and no expensive grocery bill from having my 4yo wanting everything in sight! 

I have so many topics to blog about! Hopefully I'll be back on schedule this week! 

Have a great Monday friends!

Last day of work and summertime fun!

Yay! My maternity leave has begun! 

Friday was my last day. I can't tell you how good this morning feels not having to drag myself up and out for the commute into work! 

Friday wasn't really a work day, it was longcoffee breaks and lunch breaks with the great people I work with. Then off early to begin my maternity leave. 

Oh! And the last day of summer camp for little k! He will be off with me for the summer! But then to a new school in 
September so there was some sad goodbyes Friday too :( 

Then the weekend! It was a long weekend, August civic holiday! 

We planned a jammed packed weekend. Could be the last before baby ha! 

First up. A little bbq party at our place. 
We have no fences in our backyard yet so we put up a tent and some tables and had a great time. The kids loved having access to the neighbors play set too! 

Lots of fun! The party went on to 230am! 

The next day we had more fun planned. My aunt and uncles annual summer pool party! 

Ok, being in the water pregnant is the best feeling!!!! When I was floating in the deeper end holding on to the noodle I felt my joints loosen up and not feel so stiff. My body felt Sooo relaxed! 

Always the best time with family! 

Our family is growing Soo much!!! 

With 7 of us grandchildren and almost 6 grandchildren, with many more to come! 
Can't wait to see how filled this pool is in the next 5-10years! Ha! 

The next day we still had a more fun planned! A beach day!!! We found a beach only an hour away. A perfect place with a playground for the kids and clean water to play in! 

The kids had a blast! We will be making this a summer tradition with family. 

Cousin love! And at least 2 more cousins to be joining here :) next year baby Michael will be in this wagon! 

Hope you all had a great weekend too!!!

First day of my maternity leave and patiently waiting for baby Michael! 

We are all so excited to meet him!!!
