Can you believe it’s already almost May? I feel like I’ve just spent the last 6 months staring at snow outside my windows and now summer feels like it’s just around the corner. Memo to Edmonton Weather Gods: Spring should feel longer than this! On the bright side, we were lucky enough to sneak away last week for a quick trip to Vancouver to spend Easter with my family and Cheryl & her brood! I wish we can say we had a perfect trip, but in reality we all spent most of it sick as dogs. First Kai, then Aaliyah, then me & Gurdeep… and from there we pretty much infected everyone in our path. We jokingly referred to Kai as the “Outbreak Monkey” for starting it all!
Despite that, we still managed to get in a bit of fun too and judging from these pictures you’d probably never believe how sad and pitiful we all really were most of the time! (aaah the magic of selective photo-taking) Here’s some of our favorites from the trip~
Aaliyah with my mom– they’re pretty much inseparable whenever they see each other (perhaps because my mom spoils her rotten and does whatever she wants?? yes. perhaps.)
Cheryl’s adorable son Dax– we miss this little guy all the time and love spending time with him whenever we can!
These two genuinely LOVE each other. Considering how infrequently they actually get to see each other it’s pretty amazing. Maybe they can sense their moms are already arranging their future marriage?? haha!
Come on now. Is this not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?! Love these these two cuties.
Easter egg- painting time! Aaliyah, Kai and Dax were joined by their other little buddy Saiyrah for an afternoon of fun. And so easy– we just soaked hard boiled eggs in different colored water baths (food coloring and water) then let the kids go at ’em with supplies purchased at the Doller Store (have I mentioned I love Dollar Stores?)
Aaliyah’s “concentration face” apparently involves a puckered lip 😉
Ta da! Here are their finished masterpieces with Cheryl’s ring stepping in to play the part of “egg stand” 🙂 Guess it just goes to show that usually it’s the simplest things that are truly beautiful.
Aaliyah all tuckered out with her Auntie Trinh (my sis)
Thanks for letting me share a bit of us with you~ we truly appreciate everyone that visits this lil ol’ blog! We hope you had a nice Easter with your loved ones and ate too many chocolate eggs like we did!
