POD: Victoria day Fireworks

Today was Victoria day so the neighborhood was alive with fireworks.

POD: Let the Season Begin

Today Violet headed out on the field for her first games of lacrosse for the 2017 season. I could have gotten some pictures from the actual games, but it was rainy and grey. So this one we captured yesterday in the sunshine seemed a better way to remember the day.

POD: Relaxing in the Grass

Today we have a picture of Ruby take a break from playing catch. She had a lovely time enjoying the summer-like weather in the sun.

POD: NEw Mouth Guard for Violet

Today we headed to one of Violet’s lacrosse teammates moms dental clinic (Mimico Dental Hygiene) to get a new mouth guard. It was quick and easy, and in a few days, Violet will have a sparkly purple mouth guard.

POD: Broken, but healing

Today we had a follow-up with the fracture clinic and everything seems to be going ok. Her bone’s still aligned and the cast is in good shape. Best of all she’s been cleared to play in the first Lacrosse tournament this season.

POD: Geese Family

Today while heading to a client meeting we saw a family of geese walking through the green space between the buildings.

POD: Lacrosse Jersey Day


Tonight at Lacrosse practice Violet got her jersey for the coming season of lacrosse. We’re still not sure how well she’ll play with one arm in a cast, but if today’s practice is any indication she’s going to give it her best shot.

POD: A special moment at HockeyFest

Today was Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest, an event Violet had been looking forward to for weeks. A chance to skate with her hero Natalie Spooner. When she broke her arm last week we were so worried that she’d miss it. I’m so glad that it turned out to be such a memorable day for my little Hockey Diva.

POD: Time for some Flowers

With it finally feeling like the warm weather is here to stay, we picked up a bunch of flowers today. I think it’ll look lovely once it’s all planted.

POD: Jersey Preview

Between the issues with my blog and family commitments, I’m having trouble keeping up with my renewed focus on blogging. But more is to come, for now here is a sneak peek at what Violet’s Jersey will look like next hockey season.
