Tired Boy Revives

February 26, 2012

Both sets of grandparents dropped to K&K&S's on Sunday night. Unfortunately Samuel was still napping, tired out after an afternoon of skiing Mcdonald's (in the chariot). He was slow to revive.
After some coaxing, he decided he would play, so we all enjoyed his liveliness.

We shared a buffet dinner with homemade vegetable soup, vegetarian chili, a tortiere from Cheneville and bread from the Wakefield bakery. Happiness all around.

A Day in the Snow

February 18, 2012

On Saturday morning, Barbara and Grant arrived at Samuel’s house, as Grant was needed to help move the washer and dryer to the basement for the upcoming bathrooom/laundry room renovation. We stayed for the day and had fun in the snow. First we met the new neighbour’s dog, Chester, and Samuel and the three dogs led the way for a walk.

Then Samuel played with Kirk’s old red shovel. Grant used Samuel’s yellow shovel to throw snow “up” for Boots who jumped for it. “Up” was a lot of fun.

More fun “driving” Barbara’s car and sliding.

We helped Kirk move some wood out of the basement to make way for the appliances. Then it was time for the heavy moving job.

When we went in for lunch, we admired the Valentines Samauel had made for his parents. Samuel showed off his new car bed and snuggled in for his afternoon “do do”.

When Samuel got up from his nap, he noticed that the laundry room needed some housecleaning and he got right to it.
He enjoyed the nighbour’s bobsled run. Check out the video:
What a brave boy! He pulled his sled up the hill himself, enjoying several daring runs.

Barbara and Samuel hiked through some deep snow holes to get to the backyard “bateau”. Then it was inside time for a “feu”. Soon Karine came home from work and got busy cooking a special supper of rice noodles and fresh vegetables.

Before we left, we said goodbye to Bagel – a final farewell. He seemed to have a good day today and did not seem in much pain. We will miss our 15 year old smiling “puppy”.

Samuel Discovers the Snowflake Kingdom

February 10, 2012

What good luck that February 10 was a beautiful Friday, both Karine and Barbara were off work, and Winterlude festivities were underway. Off we went to the with Samuel to the Snowflake Kingdom in Jacques Cartier Park.

Our first encounter was with a friendly Canadian Navy mascot.

Then we had fun on the ice slides. Check out the video:

We negotiated our way through a labyrinth...  then more sliding. Time to have a first taste of a Beaver Tail... ummmmm.

Grant pushed Samuel and Karine around on a sled - fun!

After more sliding, it was time for a picnic lunch and fun around a campfire pit.

By noon hour we had a very tired boy. Time to go home for a good nap after a fun morning.
