Sushi Sequel

It has become part of our Thursdays, after working hard at gymboree with his little buddies, Jake gets to watch the world go round, and I get my sushi fix! I bring him his own lunch but we share the avacado rolls.

This time I had my camera...and if you look closely, you will see the exact moment before my dish of soy sauce went everywhere!

A little chilly yesterday afternoon so we stayed indoors...

First of all, Jake made the most of the moving boxes.

Then we played with the bubbles - a favourite activity for almost any kid I know!

And then his head became too heavy to hold up during supper:)

Fab Feb

Really can't believe its February. We had an another warm lazy weekend so took advantage by walking around exploring the parks and neighbourhood, really just staying outside all day long. We even had some pimms & lemonade cause it felt like summer! (Sorry to rub it in to those in blizzardy Canada...)

Salusbury Road in London (our home for 2 months) - Jake loves the view from Daddy's shoulders!

Some playground pics from Queens Park

Mini Rico checking out his shadow - we got Rich matching squeakers:)

Since we have moved, we are now one block from Queens Park, one of Jake's favourites because of the little farm set up for children. We visit every day and he starts to kick and giggle with excitement as we enter. Is it weird that it reminds me of Jester (my dog in Calgary) of how excited he gets when we approach the off leash park? Maybe...but anyway, we have had some sunny blue sky days lately which has made it all that much more fun to visit the animals!

The path to the mini farm...

Checking out the odd looking fluffy white chickens. These chickens were apparently imported from Hampstead Heath (a beautiful wooded area in Northern London). They seem to like their new digs though.

I thought he was looking at the chickens, but it turns out he really just wanted the leaves.

This rooster chose to follow us along the fence thanks to Jake's squeaker shoes! I'm sure you've seen them, but with every step, Jake's shoes squeak...which is cute for awhile, then just annoying. We have removed one of the squeakers, so now its only annoying every other step. (Thanks Uncle Rob & Auntie Kelly:)
