Yesterday was 'Family Day' in Canada. A Bank Holiday weekend where you try to forget that you still have a good 2 months left of the cold and the snow and just hang with the family and have good times. So that's exactly what we did. Starting the day with some (usually contraband in our house) 'Choco-blast!' cereal. Yum.
I took the opportunity to use their sugar induced energy rush to get everyone onboard for a little housework, with a promised reward at the end. Housework done we fulfilled our promise by taking the kids out for a fun day at the amusement arcade and then dinner at Jack Astors. Poor Jess had to stay home and finish her homework, so missed out this time; you can't slack in grade 12! The kids had so much fun, it was lovely to see their happy faces when we tucked them up in bed at the end of the day. Kids asleep I set about making some hair clips to match the skirts I have already made for Eva. Here's my favourite.
We topped the day off with a full bodied glass of red and a good film (Eagle Eye: great movie) the perfect end to a really great day. I heart family Day! B
