Full Steam Ahead

I realize how quiet it's been on the blogging front; slacking is an understatement.  Our family has been experiencing major changes; a new baby, a new juno, a wild tour schedule, a new home(s).  We've left Toronto and our little 1 bedroom apartment, that treated us quite well for the past 5 years, put our life in storage and moved in to the family farm house.

To say that our kid's quality of life has gotten better is an understatement; it has surged and gone off the charts.  Theo now spends his days with his cousins, playing outside until dusk when the bugs are nibbling at his ear lobes and his feet are coated in a fine layer of dirt and Frankie is surrounded by the chattering of little voices and an endless supply of arms to cuddle her.

We are lucky.

For about a thousand reasons.

Here's 3.

1. We have family that loves us enough to put up with us invading their space like a bull in a china shop.

2.  We have family that bends over backwards to love our kids, one example being this past weekend. Simon's fam took Theo to a cottage for the entire weekend and cared for him and loved him and played with him so that us parents (+ Frankie) could get away and be together and listen to music and drink beer and pretend for just a minute, that we were 20 again...

3. Simon has an amazingly awesome festival schedule coming up that includes Yellowknife, Salmon Arm and Fernie, to name a few and that we get to go with!! The whole fam will be out on the west coast for the month of August.  It will be crazy and there will be meltdowns and temper tantrums and when we get back, we'll likely need a vacation to recover but it will be the thing that memories are made of.  I mean, how often do you get to tour the country with your dad's folk band?

So keep checking in cause this summer is gonna be a good one.
