Firehall Fun!

I feel like this is not my first “kick at the can” with the Firehall tour. It seems that it will not be the last, either.

Fire hall tours are always so much fun for pre-schooler’s! So we did it, again.

This time was pretty darn good, I might add. They even suited up for the kiddo’s…they didn’t do that last time. And daddy got to join us, because it just so happens that he was working on computers at Fire Hall No.1 that day. And of course that was really exciting. And even more exciting was when they got called out for a call two minutes into the presentation. We got a tour of the retro fire trucks instead while we waited for the crew to come back.

Here’s some highlights from the event:







Moments such as this…

A moment between two brothers ages and differences and worlds apart in their interests. Enjoying each other’s company. I do not get these very often with them, but they come in bursts. And your heart grows, because you hope and pray that one day, they will cherish each other’s company and be the VERY best of friends.


And this moment…a time to cherish and remember, time with nana to learn and grow. And make apple sauce with a seasoned cook 🙂


Some before Spring “escapades” from the Winter household!

It’s been kinda quiet around here, hasn’t it? I’ll admit…I often fail at blogging. I get busy, and then I just flop at night. I’m ok with that!

What have we been up to though? Oh…right. Quite a bit, actually!

Here’s some snippets from January up to present:


A trip to make a sweet hot rod at Home Depot!

Classic Monkey look. He works hard to be this cute.


Deep in thought….


Daddy in his element.


Yup, this is serious business!
I LOVE taking the boys to the Home Depot workshops! They’re so much fun and even better, they’re FREE!!! :O


We threw in a nice home dinner date, Trim Healthy Momma style! (Ok, maybe not Mr.Winter’s plate, but mine was, and it was delicious!)


Some photography skills from Monkey…I love finding these photos on my camera 😉


Some arctic animal habitat fun with Monkey. He’s trying out his cool handmade snow has sparkles in it! Who doesn’t LOVE sparkles I ask you!? No one, that’s right! Unless you have to clean them up….hehe


I love this little man so much. He has the sweetest most joyful personality.


We were very inquisitive this Winter…and we forgot everything but our diapers sometimes!


We ate popcorn and called it “school” during our study of Native Peoples of Canada!


And we relaxed. Muffin style.


We built some K’nex with mom. This one took HOURS. Really! But it was a lot of fun!


And we learned how to make a snowman out of snow! And spell snow. We had a lot of fun this Winter, but we’re sure glad for spring in this house!

Welcome, Spring! We’re glad to see you!!
