Our yearly tradition in September got a whole lot more fun with a mobile toddler, a two week old baby and a midweek visit giving us the orchard to ourselves.
Details: Our orchard of choice is Pine Farm Orchards. Info found here.
So turns out the whole two under two thing is no joke. We haven’t abandoned our list, though have completely abandoned blogging for a few months (because, let’s be real, when I get 4 and a half minutes to myself, I’m lying on the couch, attempting to watch Netflix, catch up on news and stress eating chocolate).
I have a whole backlog of items to post and we’re hoping to get back on track soon!
Wishing everyone the best of the New Year!
Sam, Adam, Henry & Poppy
It’s Giving Tuesday! This year we supported the following charities;
High Park Nature Centre. Henry has been taking Nature classes here since he was two months old. We absolutely love the program and the special events we’ve attended. The Centre is currently raising funds to send deserving at risk students to Nature Camp.
I spent the winter knitting a pile of baby blankets (because they are all I know how to knit, upcoming goals; learn something other than a square). The blankets came into rotation on August 29th with the arrival of Poppy Jane, the chillest member of our little team of four.
The bottom two feet of our car was really clean.
Well, we’ve been sitting on a big secret. Not on purpose, but our blog has taken a backseat lately, so we just forgot to mention it. Baby #2 is joining us in less than two months (!!), and recently we’ve had to reevaluate a lot of things. We’ve decided we didn’t want to change our current list to make it more manageable/pregnancy & baby friendly BUT we have decided to spread our current 100 over 2016/2017 and then get back on the 100 per year train after that once the littles are easier to do things with.
As our pals at Band of Characters have reassured us in the past, it’s our blog, our rules, right? (Also if you want to follow along with a family just rocking the 100 things challenge, check out their blog!)
Two weekends ago we went to the Burlington Kite Festival; five minutes after we arrive a giant storm blew in (complete with thunder and lighting), and so that was the entirety of our experience. Henry was really excited and interested in the kites, so definitely something we would try again. It was a pretty small festival (partially because of the weather, but also just seemed low key), so we might look for a bigger one, but still fun!
