Spring = Ice Cream (Plus a touque)

The snow has melted, the birds are chirping, time of renewal, rebirth, blah, blah, blah. Spring means Dairy Queen!

We took Liliane for her first time a couple of weeks ago.

Only in Canada (well, east of B.C. anyway) do we need a hat and mittens for early spring visits to DQ. Did I mention that there's a Dairy Queen just around the corner from our new place? I don't know why they didn't list that as one of the amenities in the description frankly.

Back at the park... A couple of new interests.

Sand. Big time.
I grab a bunch of sand and squeeze it in my fists like this!

Then I let it go like this!

Then I put it in my mouth and spit it out like this!

Then my Dad freaks out like this!

She is getting more and more interested in hanging out with other kids:

Especially if they share her thing for sand.

We took her to the park this past Sunday, but very early in the morning. She wakes up around 7 so we were out the door by 8:30 or so.

She always walks like she knows where's she's going.

We did the usual...

Then we got to her other new big thing: playing with a ball. We got her one last year and she didn't really pay attention to it until about 2 weeks ago. Now she's all excited to play with her ballon (yep, she's bilingual!) and she talks about it a lot.

Since we were at the park so freaking early we had the soccer field all to ourselves!

David Beckham, eat your heart out...

So that's life for us these days! Besides going to the park and eating ice cream, we've got a couple of other things going on. In fact, ONE MONTH from today we'll be taking possession of our new house. Seriously? Crazy. We have a couple more weeks after that until we move, but time is flying by.

Still having difficulties with our landlord but we're trying to just focus on all the good stuff in store and blocking out all the rest. Turns out she's a petty, cheap, vengeful nutbar like her parents before her. Have I mentioned that? Did I really type that out loud? Can you tell that we're a little on the edge around here??

Had a great visit from my pal Deb who came in from Ottawa with Doug to spend her birthday weekend here. We went out for DELICIOUS dinner on Saturday night. I think I'm still full. Happy Birthday week Deb!

You'll be relieved to hear that I finished the Twilight book series. Compelling in an angsty, adolescent girl kind of way right to the end. But I couldn't put it down, so what does THAT mean? Whatever, Edward is hot not matter how old you are. Right Jaime?

*sigh* It makes me so happy to find new posts on my friends' blogs! Even if they make me crave a DQ and it is already closed. Mmmm... :o)
