Four generations (times two!)

In May Natasha spent a week with her parents in Saskatoon while Dave was at a conference in Vancouver. During that week Sam met both of his great-grandmas. In July Sam will meet his Great-Grandpa Leis.

First Mother's Day

For as long as I can remember I've wanted to be a mother. Being Sam's mom has been amazing and I am so privileged to be able to raise him. Being a mom is both tougher than I imagined it would be (sleepless nights, worrying about every small noise) and more awesome than I thought it would be. Sam is such a precious little boy and I love being able to hang out with him -- even at 2 am!

For my first Mother's Day we went to brunch with our friend, Jen, at the Mill Creek Cafe and then for a walk along the river ravine. It was a gorgeous day and it was wonderful to be able to spend some time outside. I think Sam had a good day too!
