A Sunny Thanksgiving

Weekend October 5-8

On our way to the cottage Friday night we dropped in for a quick play with Samuel. His  Mami and Papi were getting ready to look after him while his parents went out  to Wakefield to hear their neighbour, Phil Jenkins, play his guitar.

Sam loaded some rocks into his dump truck and Grant watched him dump them. On Saturday he was going to cheer on his Uncle Carl running a half marathon. On Sunday he would have Thanksgiving dinner with his friends Fenna, Jasper and Ross.

On Monday we met Sam and family at Kingsmere for a good hike, playing in the leaves and a hot dog picnic lunch. He loved watching the other kids play in the leaves too. He and Grant enjoyed a good play together.

Before he left to go home for his nap he and his Maman looked at a few recent pictures together.

Samuel is Still an Only Child

September 30, 2012

We visited Samuel for a Chinese food dinner together at his place. As usual, he enjoyed playing with water and vehicles with Grant. 

He also showed off his new toileting skills. He entertains himself with a tablet while he is waiting.

Before going to bed he happily showed us his own "baby record book". It is full of photos of him, his family and friends.

Maybe next time we visit he will have a new brother or sister...

September 21 and 23

As Sam loves to play, when Barbara and Grandpa invited Karine and Sam our for lunch in Wakefield on Friday, Karine suggested Chamberlin's Lookout above Wakefield General Store as it has a children's palyroom. Plus we had a delicious lunch. Sam had hummus and vegetables, a favourite, as well as peanut butter. At the table, he played with a backhoe, picking up and transporting things.

On Sunday, Barbara and Grant visited K&K&S to play with Sam and to help with the ongoing bathroom construction. Sam demonstrated his rope swinging skills, then played in the sand with Grant. He shared some noodle soup with Maman. We all made our own grilled tomotato and cheese sandwiches or toased bagels on the grill.

Sam had fun organizing the clothespins - he really concentrated on this.

Meanwhile Papa was building a new sink counter in the upsatirs bathroom. Sam loved the cardboxes that it produced. Maman was sealing the caulking around the downstairs bathroom tub. Grant and Papa brought the tub up from the basement. We all know who will have the first bath!
