Silly Statues

We made a little trip to the zoo yesterday with the Kirby kids and their Dad. My girls like to play statue as they run through the North American Wild section of the zoo. We come upon them along the trail, standing in a crazy pose. We make a silly comment about the statue, poke them or just keep walking. Usually they laugh before we get past them and then run ahead for another pose.
Yesterday they taught their friends the game.

First Day of Spring

Not only is this a first day of Spring post. It's the first blog post on this blog for 2011!!
The first day of Spring, brought the sun! We are craving the sun so badly. The rain seems endless lately and even flowers and blossoms that were in bloom this time last year are still curled up and hiding.
We hit the geo-caching trail with the Floyd Family along with another Twitter friend Vicki and went off to Burnaby lake. 5 adults and 5 kids we traveled the paths searching for treasure. 9 caches we found and lots of pictures were taken. Both Gwen and I armed with our macros, there were plenty of new growth, buds and even a frog waiting for us to photograph. Oh, yes there were a few pictures taken of the kids too, I have included those :) . Gwen and Anthony's little guy has a real liking for Keira and they held hands for most of the day. Sometimes Kylie jumped in too.

Last signs of old, bring in the new!

Kaylum was showing the ducks his little hippo. They weren't really interested.
