Feefa's visit and other updates

We were fortunate here recently to enjoy an impromptu visit from Grandma Feefa. Eating is always a popular activity in our household, so we headed over to our new favorite waffle shop, Lakeside Waffles. Daddy enjoyed a cup of coffee. Notice Roan's bed head. As you can tell I pretty much just give up on the weekends.

Here's Feefa watching her waffle being made.

Roan, maybe you should give Feefa a bite?

Finger lickin good

As you can tell, Roan is a fan of "see" food

We headed over to the downtown aquarium. Here are Feefa and Roan catching bubbles.

We rounded out our trip to the aquarium with a stop at the bar for some refreshing (virgin) pinia coladas. I had to share mine with Roan and Daddy.

In other news, Roan recently got a new baby doll, whom she loves dearly. She named her "Baby Sarah."

She regularly says things like "Baby Sarah. I love her," and "Baby Sarah. Her so cute!" Baby Sarah likes to sit on her own little baby potty next to Roan's big girl potty. She also wears her jammies without complaint (unlike a certain toddler I know). And she came with her own teenie little stuffed bear named Bitty Bear (which you can barely make out in the photo below).

Here we are last weekend. It was warm and sunny so Roan and I spent the morning in the backyard doing some garden cleanup. Hence the sunhat and sunscreen (which she has in hand). The snowpants she's wearing were a recent thrift store find for our hut trip this coming weekend. When she caught sight of them she insisted on putting them on, even though temperatures were near 70.

Last Sunday we took a trip to the park with Aunt Jen, Daddy and the doggies.
We played on the swings
and slid down the slide.
Lastly, these pictures are from this very morning. She got a package yesterday that had a pair of new hairbows in them. They are little ducks with googly eyes and a pink polka dot hairbow of their own. She loves em!

I have some good videos which hopefully I'll post soon.
This weekend keep your fingers crossed for us. We are going on our first ever hut trip, which involves backpacking in 2-3 miles on snowshoes at elevation to a (deluxe!) cabin with 4 other families. The cabin has electric lights, running hot water, and a kitchen stocked with pots and pans, so we only have to bring clothes, food and sleeping bags. Oh, and diapers, wipes, infant tylenol, Roan's favorite blankie, diaper cream, a changing pad... and a box of wine! Hmm, not exactly ultra light, but we should have some fun!
