Thankfully, our daughter and her husband return from Cuba this evening, and they can take over once again!
But that's not to say that we didn't have some fun moments. They both sure are cute sometimes.
On Friday we took the kids to the soccer dome. They have a one hour free play time in the morning, and the kids can just run around and kick the ball. It was fun, and I got some exercise running around with Cameron. Running around like that, kids just never seem to get tired!
Saturday morning was library time and we went and got some books. I think Cameron is going to be a good reader.
Here's a video Ruth took (I didn't realize that she was filming it!) of Cameron reading his own book. Of course he's not really reading it, but it's been read to him so many times that he knows the story pretty much by heart.
The last couple of days the weather has warmed up a little, but it sure was windy yesterday. Today is supposed to be a high of 9C (48F), so that's a little more seasonal, and then on our last day here tomorrow it's supposed to be almost tropical, with a high of 15C (60F) and sunny!
We fly out of here early Tuesday morning...have to be at the airport somewhere around 5:00am! We're taking the milk run back to Las Vegas and we have to connect in both Philadelphia and Dallas, so we don't arrive in Vegas until around dinner time. But, it was only $268 CAD ($208 USD) for the one way flight from Halifax to Vegas, so we don't mind the extra time. Besides, we love flying!
There are a lot of pheasants in the area, but they normally remain hidden. But they're searching for food now and the front lawn here has started to show a bare patch and this one pheasant comes out and pecks around on the lawn. I can't get a decent photo of him because he flies off as soon as I try and go outside, so I had to take the pics through the front window...
A ring necked pheasant.
These pheasants aren't natural to this area. They were brought here from China in the 1850's.
Some good spring deals starting to show up on Amazon...
