Monday

Today I'm sick: I have a sore throat and I feel cold. Emma didn't go to school because she had a tummy ache and she didn't feel ok.

Yesterday, we went to our local amusement park with a group of friends (mainly families from the kids school.) so I guess it didn't help because the weather was not really on our side: some shower at first then a gray sky almost all day. Of course, the kids didn't care and had a blast !!! (and we didn't have to wait a lot on the line thanks to the weather !!!) For the first time, Pierre tried some attractions he avoided in the past. He can be very proud of himself and Emma too who did some new rides as well !!!

This one is new but is not that scary:



Pierre is on the left:

He even tried the pirat boat but all the other kids kept telling him: Pierre , you are very white !!!

Steb decided to try a mild roller coaster but he didn't like it: it was too scary.


He also wanted to do like the big kids who crossed the bridge. He did it with the help of a friend:
I was surprised when he enjoyed (a lot) the rafting boats because the starting point is quite high:
He was not afraid and he did it several times !!!


I spent a lot of time on the water with Steb who really enjoyed those boats !!!

And here is my snowman preogressing steadily :

J'ai un fils malade en voiture, alors tu imagines bien qu'il ne réclame pas ce style de manège ;-)
Tu brodes bien et en plus un thème hivernal, tu as raison, c'est comme cela qu'il faut faire pour etre prete au moment voulu!

Ranae said...

I hope you and Emma are feeling much better today. The park looks like a hoot.
Your snowman is looking so adorable.

Tammy said...

Aw, the snowman looks wonderful and the pics are great!

Lori-Ann said...

Hope you get well soon. Nothing like a distraction (park) to help keep your mind off of the sickness, some.

Your pictures are great. Glad you all had fun.

Sonda in OR said...

Hope you both feel better soon! Love the snowman!

Brigitte said...

I hope you and Emma are already on the mend.

Jean said...

Love the snowman! I was catching up on your posts. I have heard that people coming here from Mexico should limit contact with people so I agree that the speech therapist should have canceled her appointments. I think that was the right thing to do.

Marita said...

Great job on the snowman.

Looks like a fabulous day out. Sometimes going out in bad weather is best because others stay away.

Hope you are feeling better now.
