No time for blogging but sharing a few photos from our weekend

Life has been busy.  Hectic, crazy, breathless busy.  I haven't had time to think about this blog or what to write about.  I've barely had time to read any blogs.  But please know that I am still reading most of my favourites but just haven't had time to comment.  I'm hoping that I will get into a comfortable routine soon, and will have more time to converse with everyone but until then I will just leave you with a bit of fun news that my family enjoyed over the weekend.

Miss M, through her T-ball league, won a trip to Toronto!  Her coach submitted her name for Player of the Week and her name was drawn for the national grand prize!  Toronto  is only a four-hour drive from where we live, but we got a paid flight, one night accommodations, and tickets to see two Blue Jays games!  It was a whirlwind adventure.  Miss M and I were up early on Saturday morning to catch our flight, Hubby and J took the train and met us there.  We stayed at an amazing hotel that is attached to the stadium and we could see the entire field from our hotel room window!  We saw both games, did a little sight-seeing, and returned on Sunday night.  Everyone had a blast, but we were exhausted!  Here are a few pics!

She loved the plane! Even on the way home when there was a lot of turbulence she said, "Whee! I like the bumps, Mommy!" Oh, to be an innocent child again!

She enjoyed the games. They were a bit long for her, but we played "Spot the Mascot" and bought some treats and souvenirs to keep busy!

The weekend was a lot of fun for everyone, but we couldn't wait to get home to our beds by Sunday night!

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. What a treat! Busy can be good. As long as you get a chance to conk out too.

  2. Oh my goodness, this is so awesome. Such a sweetheart! I'm so glad you guys had fun. Amazing opportunity for both of you. I know how you feel about the pace. Too too busy!

  3. Wow! Good for her, and good for you guys to be able to spend time like that. I don't think I ever won anything in my life, let alone something as special as this.

    I love Toronto, and I know exactly the hotel you speak of. Great place!

    I know what you mean about a changing schedule, and a busy life, and how they affect blogging. You want to make time but you're pulled in so many directions. I feel a change coming too, and I hope I'm able to handle it, blogging and all. Cheers to figuring things out for the both of us.

  4. OMG OMG!! THAT IS SO COOL!! I've ALWAYS wanted to go to Toronto but it's too late to write TAKE ME TAKE ME

    Oh well, see you soon! Try and have fun without me.

  5. Thanks for your comments, everyone. We did have a great time! But now I'm just wishing for the pace to slow down. A few more weekends left of baseball for my son (which means traveling two hours each way for one day of each weekend), and hopefully things will calm down. I'm struggling to keep up!

  6. Precious pictures... (once you have teens, you're nostalgic for the little ones!)

  7. Love that blanket! You know a trip was good if a kid is knocked slam out at the end of it. Glad she enjoyed it!
