Lordy, lordy..

Gosh two months have gone by since my last blog entry...It's been a busy few months for us.

Hayden turned 4 and had a wonderful party with his friends at the Science Centre. Our good friends from Edmonton came down and it was great to visit with them.

School finished and I think we are all glad for the break. Come September our little preschooler is going 5 afternoons so that will be a big change in his little life. I'm sure he will enjoy it as all his friends are also going 5 afternoons.

Faruq has been busy, busy, busy at work and will be glad for the break in a week. He is planning on taking 3 weeks off so we can take a family vacation through BC and Alberta. I know Hayden will enjoy the time with him as much as I will.

I finally finished my latest photography course at Sait. While it was very informative I was tired of the classes and really needed the break. I had hoped to take one more course before our new little bean arrives in November but unfortunately they changed the dates of the course and my due date falls right in the middle. So I will wait until the spring to resume my studies.

I'm now 23 weeks ago with what will likely be my last pregnancy. While I have had really no morning sickness I have been having a lot of lower back and groin pain as the baby is breach. The little one seems to like to do a lot of tap dancing which has caused a bit of discomfort for mommy.

Faruq and I celebrated our 14th Wedding anniversary on June 19th...It hasn't always been easy but we are stronger and happier today then we ever have been. I'm looking forward to the next 14 years...I love you Faruq !!

He really out did himself this year with a beautiful bouquet of roses, a lovely cake from Cakeworks and a super cool new lens for my camera.

Early in July (actually on Hayden's 4th birthday) one of my most favorite aunt's passed away. It was very sudden which sometimes is good but can be more painful for the family. I remember growing up in Nova Scotia and spending many summers at my Aunt Inie's house. She always made time to take us to the beach or to the local corner store for ice cream. I loved her very much and will miss her dearly.

We are currently on vacation in Gibsons, BC and having a fabulous time. Hayden and I head to the beach almost everyday. It has been so wonderful having grammie and grampie around to help with Hayden. I know it will be hard to return to Calgary at the end of August.
