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: 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: 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: 5k with Violet


Today Violet and I ran the Novo Nordisk® “Hazel” 5KM Run/Walk. I’m working on a post with picture I captured pre and post race. Stay tuned.

POD: Turning 40 with Family

Today I turned forty, to celebrate our little family had a nice dinner out. While we were waiting for our food, Melissa captured this picture of me and the kids.  it’s the little moments with our growing children that I cherish, they are growing up so fast.

POD: Photo Days

Tonight was Violet’s last day of dance photos, so it seems fitting to use a picture of her in all her costumes for today’s picture of the day. As another dance season enters the final weeks, I am impressed with how hard my little dancing diva works. Even when she’s forced to miss a class she practices at home or asks her friends from class to show her what she missed.
