Calypso Water Park

What a blast we all had at the brand new Calypso Water Park. It had enough kiddie things to keep Hudson entertained all day long. AND it had enough crazy scary adult slides to keep the rest of us entertained all day long. It wasn't cheap...I purposely didn't tell Rob how much it cost until we got there...but totally worth it!

Kiddie area that Hudson LOVED. Until Romy found some poo in the water, and I refused to let Hudson go back in.


Can you imagine if you were caught on those stairs during this week's earthquake?!? Yikes they were scary enough to climb when the earth stands still. P.S. Rob is the only one of us that braved the Veritgo (the white slide in the background)!

Devin chillin like he does so well!

Edouard the Dare Devil went down the yellow slide you see in the background!

Victor, Kyle (Victor's friend), and Romy going down the "Race Track"

Me and Romy waiting in the wrong line for the ride we actually wanted to go down - which we obviously didn't know at the time this picture was taken. We had to butt-in line when we realized our mistake. Butting in line when you have to carry a 6 foot tube isn't too inconspicuous. By the way...I screamed the whole way down the slide. Scary fun.

End of wonderful day.
It was a great way to start off Summer 2010!

Nothing much new around here...

Devin is sleeping through the night (didn't want to jinx it by blogging about it, but it's been more than a month now, so I don't think it's just a phase)!

His new thing is sticking out his tongue. I wanna kiss him each time he does it.

And of course...still smiling his way through life!

He's mastered rolling over. Don't mind my annoyingly crazy encouragement.

Our days have been kinda same ol same ol lately...filled with Scooby**, popsicles, and playing at the park.
And oh yeah...after the world's longest, craziest mortgage approval in history...we bought a house! Calling it a "fixer-upper" is a total understatement, but it's got potential. I don't know how many of you could have seen past the filth, 6 cats, and crazy lady currently living there, but it's location and the fact that it was one of the only detached houses in Montreal in our price range convinced us to go for it! Can't wait to show you the "before and after" pictures. I KNOW they'll be impressive (my husband is pretty handy).
**Hudson has "graduated" from watching toddler cartoons like Sesame Street (although he still likes the Backyardigans) to more big kid cartoons like Scooby Doo. The shift is welcome, since Scooby is pretty cool...BUT...these cartoons are on a channel that has commercials. This has resulted in Hudson wanting us to buy Corn Pops cereal, some push-up type candy, and any and every TOY that comes on TV. Yikes...advertising is scary effective.
P.S. There may not be pictures of Hudson on here for a while...his recent haircut is a repeat of this disaster.

Rolly Polly


That's not how I left him.

He was awake and on his back when I left him to drink my morning coffee and play on the computer!

Yikes. No more slacking on Facebook and Kijiji anymore.

Playing with (or a better description would be trying to eat) his ball. Thanks's the first toy he can hold all on his own!
