Gotta Love a Beach Day!!!

Since the weather hasn't been the greatest this year, we haven't had many beach days. It was very warm yesterday, so we headed to the beach! What a great morning we had, playing in the sand and the park and spending time with good friends. It really does not get any better than that!
The boys love the beach and I am so thankful that we get to enjoy it!

Levi's Field Trip

Levi's preschool class went on a field trip to Fort Edmonton Park this past week. The whole class was really excited! First we rode a trolley car from the train station to the "town". Levi was very happy, he said that he had never been on a trolley car before.

Levi and his friend Lukas on the trolley:

Then the kids made lemonade and ice cream. Each of them took turns rolling and squeezing the lemons:

Putting the sugar into the ice cream:
And finally cranking the ice cream!

After ice cream and lemonade, the kids went on a little tour of the town. It was raining quite a bit at this point, but the kids loved it! Levi shared his umbrella with his friends and they enjoyed splashing in the puddles.

On the way out I took a class picture of the kids:
Levi had a really fun time and even though it rained the whole time, he said it was great!!

Kids (Jakob) and Glasses Don't Mix

Well, here Jakob is with his 3rd pair of glasses!
Jakob's first pair of glasses are still around, a bit beat up, but still usable. They are much too big for him and slide down when he looks down, but they work. He has been wearing those ones to school and around the house for the past couple weeks. We got Jakob's a second pair of glasses that we thought he could wear to church and have on hand as a "just in case" pair. Jakob preferred those glasses and wore them the most, even to school. He came home from school one day (a field trip day) and one of his lenses had popped out and they couldn't find it. I called the place where he had the field trip, thinking they might be able to locate the missing piece, they laughed at me. Oh well.

So... we ordered Jakob another pair as his "just in case" glasses and here they are:

After talking to some of the other mom's who have kids with glasses, this seems to be very normal. Most are on their 3rd or 4th pair this year. Jakob is the kid who lost 8 pairs of mittens this year, so I'm just waiting for the day when he loses his glasses completely.

That being said, he does look really cute in these ones!

Michael had a pair just like them when he was in University. Apparently he lost them after 3 weeks though.... I guess it runs in the family:)
