Photo Of The Day -- May 13 - 23, 2018

Hey, look at me go -- two blog posts in two days. Yay!

May 13, 2018 -- We went to see a Blue Jays game on Mother's Day. We got there early as it was a giveaway day and we got to see where they film Blue Jays Central. Jamie Campbell is the main host. All these people were taking selfies with him on their smart phones, and when he came to where I was holding Rachel, I obviously couldn't take a selfie with my huge DSLR. So I asked Jamie if he was willing to hold Rachel so I could take a picture. Rachel and I were both so happy he agreed. We may have started a trend as after he held Rachel, other parents were asking him to hold their kids! Ha!
May 14, 2018 -- Rachel was super excited about her first day of soccer. I'm excited because her soccer league is organized by Sam's friend's parents and it's all at the school. I LOVE seeing all the neighbourhood kids converge on the school in their soccer shirts.

May 15, 2018 -- You may remember in my What's Up Wednesday post in April (read it here), I was dreading the fact that I thought Bluey was dying. However, I practiced some amateur fish psychology and determined that he might be depressed. So I moved his bowl to a room with more light. The kids have added some friends around his bowl to hang out with him, and he is much happier. Phew.

May 16, 2018 -- When Sam makes it to the big leagues as a pitcher, it will be because of all the hours he spent practicing in our backyard. Ha!

May 17, 2018 -- We went to watch Tessa and Anya and their friends run the 4x400 in a track meet. Rachel made a sign to cheer them on!

May 18, 2018 -- I've been taking so many more photos (the main goal of this project) that I'm not even bummed when I miss a day. I still feel like my goal is being accomplished.

May 19, 2018 -- We went to Toronto to celebrate Donny and Marika's 10th wedding anniversary with a ten course Chinese dinner. It was delicious and I got over this fish staring at me and ate a good portion of it.

May 20, 2018 -- Our peony bloomed. Yay!!!

May 21, 2018 -- We did some major work on our yard this day and celebrated by eating our first supper outside. One of Sam's friends joined us.

May 22, 2018 -- Rachel came home and for some reason decided she was peeling all the vegetables for supper. I didn't complain :)

May 23, 2018 -- Once again, I forgot to take a picture this day. Ooops.


  1. That fish! You are my hero: I'm not sure I could have overcome it.

  2. Sounds like your summer is off to a great start!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
