Some backyard fun. We got a new gazebo and put it up last weekend. And yesterday we were able to enjoy it as a family.

I can't believe Zachary is 3 months already. Time has just flown by. With my other two, I was so ready to be done with this stage, but I'm sad to see him get bigger.
Here he is on his 3 monthday :)


He interacts so well with Carter, I'm sure "Carter" is going to be his first word

Had to add one of Peyton. I don't have many photo ops with him anymore and rarely does he let me take his picture. This is him playing in a box...I guess they never out grow wanting to play with the boxes :)

Last Wednesday, Ryan asked when Mother's Day was. I told him it was Sunday and he did the "this Sunday?!" I nodded yes, and thought well there goes another year. He proceeded to tell me that he knew what he wanted to get me. Wow, he's already thought about this, this is a good start. He asked if I wanted to know and since I hate surprises, I said yes. He looked at me and said, "you need to get your hair done." Ironically I had just put on my facebook whether I should keep it long or chop it off. So part of me was a little offended, but I also thought it was great, he was actually saying that I could leave the house for an extended period of time to do something just for me. So while I informed him that it would be about 3 hours that information didn't seem to sink in, when on the day of he wondered why I wasn't home within the :)
But he survived, because really why shouldn't he, and I have pretty hair. I don't feel pretty enough all over yet to take a picture, but it has helped with a bit of my moral with this baby weight. It was even nice that night at a friends house that all of the boys noticed my hair and they liked it. That was a good little boost for the day. :)
Sunday I had a nice day and my only rule is that no one can be grouchy at me on Mother's Day.
Wow I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted.  Last week just seemed to fly by with nothing special to report about it...just living life.
My run last week was less than fantastic. I had zero energy and we also did a longer route which also made it tougher. I was so disappointed in myself for how poorly I did.  But I am still loving it. Loving getting out of the house and just doing something that hopefully one day will become an addictive habit.
We went to Canada's Wonderland last Saturday (May1).  I turned out to be a longer day than what I thought, but the kids had a blast. We had to wait out the rain when we first got there, but it ended up being a pretty hot day.  We primarily did the kiddie rides, and they were long line ups.  Hard to convince a 3 year old that it really will be worth the wait in the end. :)  Peyton was the perfect age. He had a blast.  Carter's favourite thing was the maze, yup the free maze in the middle of kiddieville.  Ryan and Cory (the husband of the other couple we went with) tried the sledgehammer. And then we finished our day with Cory and I going on the Skyflyer. It's the bungycord one that pulls you up to 153 feet (15 stories) and then you freefall reaching winds up to about 100km/hr.  It was actually quite fun!
The boys were so good the whole day, even Zachary.  We had thought we would be leaving at around 4 or so, but didn't get home until 8.30.  We were all exhausted :)

A few shots I took today of the boys sans Peyton
Some good tummy time
