Ball Hockey

Matias has been playing floor hockey since April. He is really enjoying it and we are happy that we signed him up. He's getting exercise and learning how to play on a team, which are both invaluable. Most of the time he plays defense, which makes it hard for him to ever score any goals. I was hoping that he would get at least one goal this season, just to make him feel good. Well, when I saw his face on Saturday after the game, I was pretty sure that that had happened. I was right. Yay, Matias!

After the kids go to bed

We bought a canopy for the patio. I love it! I was worried it might be too dark and darken the living room inside, but we put it in one corner and it doesn't affect the light in the living room at all. Also, no more carrying in the pillows in case it rains:) The picture was taken in the evening, after the kids had fallen asleep...

PS. I'm trying to get better about updating my blog. I figure even if no one reads it, its a good place to keep a sort of diary of events/thoughts/feelings etc.

We recently had family photos done at Jericho beach. We have used the same photographer three times now. I really appreciate her artistic eye. Anyone can snap a pic, but not everyone has the eye to capture moments. I just love this shot, which originally included me, but I think its better with me cropped out. My four favourite people in the whole world!!

Out around the neighbourhoood

We live in East Vancouver, but you'd never know it considering all the greenery and trails through the forests around here. Lately, I have been going for a lot of early morning walks with Emmi. Spring is the best because everything is so lush and green, the sun is shining, but it's not too hot. Here are some pics from along our regular route:


Today's inspiration is this log that Matias found in the forest behind our house. I just love it.
