Levi's Birthday Celebrations

What a busy and fun week celebrating Levi!

On his birthday, I brought cupcakes to school and Levi handed them out to his class:

He requested a soccer theme:

 I also brought him a special birthday cake drink:

After school we went to my parents for their after school snack. 
Our foodie, Levi requested a charcuterie board ;)

 (Aww...Jakob loves his brother so much)

When we got back home there was a new bike waiting for Levi:

Again our little foodie... he requested "Steak Oscar" for his birthday dinner:

And ice cream cake for dessert:

On Saturday, Levi and 2 friends went bowling and to laser tag. 
After they came back to our house to play hockey and then pizza dinner.

Sunday was the family party! 

 How many little boys can Opa hold on his lap?!

Lots of hockey themed gifts:

One very happy boy in his Oilers gear:

Happy birthday, Levi!

Banff Weekend

Michael and I went on a little weekend getaway to Banff. We left Thursday night and stopped in Calgary for the night. Our downtown Calgary hotel.. the 24th floor:

Friday we slowly made our way to Banff. I love the mountains :)

We stayed at the Banff Springs for the weekend, it is such a beautiful hotel:

Saturday date night:

Sunday we went to the Johnston Canyon. It was snowing huge flakes, which looked super pretty.

We made it home Sunday night, just in time to tuck the boys into bed :)

Spring Break

It felt strange not going away for spring break this year! We stayed close to home and filled up our whole week with activities.

Saturday night Jakob, Levi and I went to see Beauty and the Beast at the movie theater. It was so good!

Monday and Tuesday we spent at the lake with Oma & Opa.
First hot dog and marshmallow roast of the year:

There is a huge puddle in front of our cabin. This was a draw for the boys and they played in there multiple times.

Zack found himself in water that was too deep for him.. Jake to the rescue!
Not that it mattered, because right after this Zack went for a 'swim' and was completely soaked.

Oma and the boys in the playroom:

The rest of the week was filled with playdates, swimming, the library, a visit to Michael's office and out for lunch with him, a walk down Whyte Ave and a stop at the candy store.

Saturday we went to Calgary to visit Scott, Marnie, Sophie and Henry. (Apparently, I didn't take one picture! We were having so much fun, I guess I forgot). The kids played, we all went swimming and the kids played some more. We stayed overnight and then the kids played some more and after lunch we headed back home. The cousins really got in some quality play time!

A busy, but fun week!

March was a pretty busy month for us. The boys were all in different sports and we seemed to be somewhere every night.

Sunday afternoon Oil King game:

Zack won 1st place in a giant airplane contest at school:

Levi lives outside with his rollerblades and hockey stick:

Lots and lots of snow. The weather was warm, so lots of playing outside in the snow:

Levi's school relay team ran in the finals:

They didn't win, but Levi ran a personal best lap :)

Levi's Soccer City Finals

Levi just finished up this years indoor soccer season. His team had a really rough start, but they made a huge comeback and made it into the city finals! His team played so well and finished off the season with a bronze medal in the city finals!! 
They win the most improved award, too!! (Awarded by me 😉)

Levi gained so much confidence and skill this year! His team won their last game 10-0! Levi scored 4 goals in the final 2 games. Way to go, Levi!!
