Memorial Day Weekend

Last weekend was the long weekend and we had a great time. We went out a few time with friends, went swimming, went to the sprinkler park, ate yummy food and generally had a fun weekend. Here are some pictures.

Blossoming vocabulary

A few days ago, I was marvelling (again) at the pace at which Kate is learning words. A few every day, and she is now finally starting to put them together into two word sentences. It's really amazing to see. I wanted to jot down her vocabulary to get a sense of how many words she has now. I'm sure I'll forget a whole bunch, but here is my attempt at a list:

Daddy
Baboo
Mummy
Mine
No
Yes
Dog
Cat
Cow
Horse
Fish
Cereal
Banana
Toast
Bath
Water
Juice
Milk
Sleep
Blanket
Book
Bucket
Pool
Park
Show
Away
Raisin
Pie
Cake
Cookie
Grapefruit
Hat
Bag
Up
Down
Hot
Walk
Car
Bus
Truck
Train
Chair
Potty
Pee
Poo
Wagon
Clay
Felix
Beck
Again
More
Wet
Tea
Oma
Shirt
Shorts
Pants
Doll
Bike
Computer
Bottle
Shoe
Sock
Airplane
Hi
Bye


I know I'm forgetting some, and I also can't figure out how to put it in columns so it's not the longest post ever, but oh well.

Weekend highlight

Yesterday morning we went for a hike down to one of our favourite places, a swimming hole on Barton Creek. It's a quick hike down and then we take a slightly longer route back after hanging around down at the water for awhile. Kate loves it.
