Busy Day

Cohen, Kason and I are off to NZ pretty soon. Simon couldn't take much time off work, so he's staying here. There are a few family activities that we are trying to fit in before we leave, one of which is taking the boys back to the Aquatic Centre. We went there a few weeks ago for the first time in quite a while and to say that both boys absolutely LOVED it is a big understatement!!

Today the weather was beautiful, and super warm (32C). We had playgroup this morning (the boys played with all the water activities, as per usual!), and afterwards we came home and put water in the paddling pool for them. Simon and I didn't get to enjoy it, though, so we decided to take them to the pools today instead of on Sunday like we had planned. Unfortunately, the kids splash park and water slide weren't going, but that still didn't stop us all having an awesome time!! Now we're going to have to go back again before we go, and this time make sure that the splash park is going :-)

I was fairly convinced that Kason and Cohen would fall asleep in the car on the way home. They had a big day, with lots of playing at playgroup, then playing outside when we got home, then swimming at the pools. But...no such luck!! They were all go until the minute their gorgeous little heads hit their pillows at bedtime tonight.
Despite all my efforts (and trust me, I have done EVERYTHING possible to try to get them to nap - they still need one, they get so overtired and crazy from about 4:30pm), they just don't nap anymore. It's apparently much more exciting to run amuck in their room. 'Quiet Time' doesn't happen either.

Anyways, we'll get there. I think we all just need to get used to the no nap thing.

In other news, this is quite possibly my new favourite photo:

Kason & Cohen
I can't take credit for the photo, it was taken by the Playgroup photographer a few weeks ago :-) I'm thinking we might have to get it enlarged and framed maybe.

  1. Nice pic. i have been reading your blog for quite a while and was quite concerned when you disappeared for a while- esp after the last two posts prior. Glad to hear they both are doing great.
