Time to go home

Matt and I flew home last week, to visit mom and dad since they are getting old.
We had a fun time visiting with lots of relatives.

20130430-201228.jpg
Mom got her Mother’s Day gift early since we were there.

20130430-201321.jpg
We were able to visit Theresa at school which was nice to see.

20130430-201432.jpg
Mom had a great time sharing family history with Andrew, Jamie and Matt.

20130430-201619.jpg
Matt and I had a chance to visit with Jamie’s cat Ally. I think she was ready to come home with us.

Since there was not a Purdy’s candy store near by we had to stock up with other Canadian chocolate.

Baby books

Today when I was looking at baby clothes, I found all these old books. Laura and Trish can divide them up.

20130422-203310.jpg
The Canadian Mother and Child was my mother’s book when I was born, so it is a few years old.
Now she can learn how to fold a diaper :)

Kinder chocolate

The whole family was together on the weekend, so we let Matt open the Kinder egg.

When I read the fine print, I could see why they are not sold in the US. They don’t want little children chocking on the small parts.

A fun delicious surprise.
