Emily’s 11th birthday party

June30

Emily has had a grand 11th birthday season. She celebrated the actual date on March 30 at Harry Potter World in Florida. Mexican cake that night. She and her sister both celebrated their birthdays at Grandma Shirl’s in Toronto on April 3. Ice-cream cake that night. A week later there was a group birthday celebration in Vancouver at her grandparent’s place. Cupcakes that night. Culminating with a day swinging through the trees with 2 friends on June 30, exactly 3 months after the real date.

Skytrek is 20 minutes from Revelstoke and great fun for kids. Emily has been big enough for 2 years to go on the adults ropes course, which runs 30-50 feet in the air – not for the faint hearted!

And afterward, cupcakes again, this time decorated by themselves.

Madeline’s 9th birthday party

June18

Another fun-filled year for our Maddie. She celebrated with some friends starting with a neighbourhood-wide scavenger hunt. I made it fairly challenging and a few kilometers in length, kept them busy for about an hour.

After some fun and games, the kids each made their own pizza.

Last night we attended the ‘flying up’ ceremony for Madeline, she is finished as a Brownie and will move up to Guides with her sister. These two were all goofiness and giggles after a number of cookies at the event. 🙂

Dance Recital

The girls danced for two nights of sold out shows at our Performing Arts Centre. This year Emily was in Jazz, and Maddie was in a Lyrical and Modern class. They are both amazing dancers!

This Spring Break we went on a much anticipated dream vacation. I found an awesome deal on a Hilton in Orlando with a great pool, slide, and lazy river. Our friend, Kari, came along to help out a bit.
