Get outside, baby...

Happy belated Canada Day and 4th of July!  We had such a busy few days celebrating the holiday weekend, but had so much fun!  We were blessed with beautiful weather and spent so much time outdoors - it was fantastic! I love to use exclamation marks!

Canada Day we ventured out to a local park with my parents and grandparents for a Canada Day celebration.   We had a great time checking out all of the events they had going on and just spending time with the family.

Kieran had a blast in the petting zoo, having his toes nibbled by goats and petting the animals. 

After the park we headed back to Gran and Grandad's for a BBQ and a float in the hot (well, warm) tub.  It's one of Kieran's favourite places to be.  He was born a water baby.

Friday and Saturday were busy preparing for and having our first garage sale.  It was a success and Kieran was so great all day just hanging out and people watching.

And then came Sunday.  We had planned to go to the beach for the first time since having Kieran.  I was a little worried about how it would go over with him in the heat all day...and the sand.  Oh, the sand.  I was terrified that he'd have a "sand"wich for lunch - he's the kid who puts everything in his mouth.  But he was fantastic! He just sat and played and swam and was so happy doing it!

He took his first swim in the lake...and it was cold, but he was great once he got used to it.  And he loved being dunked in and out of the water.

(Yea, I know.  Mommy needs her butt kicked by Jillian Michaels.)

He spent a ton of time just hanging out with daddy, giving mommy a much needed break.

Took a nap.

And ate a water bottle.

He really is a little...

(I have to admit though, we pretty much had his helmet off all day.  I couldn't stomach the thought of cleaning sand out of his diaper AND his helmet.  Bad mommy.)
