We had an awesome holiday in and around Calgary and the mountains. The kids are big on waterfalls and rainbows, so needless to say they were delighted. The birthday party at the waterslide park, folk fest, and Calaway Park helped too. Hotels with pools topped it off. Photos to follow at some point on flickr.

Mika wrote her first song yesterday. It's called I Want to Be a Rockstar When I Grow Up. It goes something like this:

I want to be a rockstar
When I grow up
I want to be a rockstar
When I grow up
I want to be a rockstar
When I grow up
Let me grow up and
be a rockstar

She wrote another one about Pokemon this morning - I didn't catch all the lyrics yet.

busy, busy. Playgrounds, Science Centres, Parks, Parades, and more! We have playdates tomorrow and Saturday (Yay! Other adults!). Sunday is a final soccer game - a make-up from one missed during the season mostly so we can pick up our photos.

Mika loved the Street Performers Fest. Both kids were wild for the parade downtown - they'd never been. Splashing around @ City Hall with Saoirse and Brighid after the parade was a big hit too.

Pop Bang!

We had an awesome Canada Day! The kids saw their first fireworks and loved it. I was surprised they were able to stay awake, but I guess the excitement kept them going. Amazing considering they bombed around Sherwood Park all day too taking in pony rides, bouncy castles and slides, and all sorts of other fun stuff with Saoirse and Brighid.

Happy Canada Day, eh?

Mika: (for the 16th time) Why did the butterfly poop on you?
Me: Because I'm special.
Mika: Well you're not the bestest special thing. I am.
Me: I know.
Mika: Why didn't the butterfly poop on me?
Me: It just wasn't your lucky day, I guess.
