May Long Weekend 2010

We're at the end of a wonderful long weekend here in Winnipeg. Sadly, it was too short - but we had some terrific weather, so I won't complain too much.

I had planned on getting a ton of sewing done this weekend. Then the sun started shining and all of those plans got thrown out the window in favour of family fun!

Here's what I did get done: Two pairs of baby moccasins to match the Pink Owls and Green Garden versions of Laney's Emergency Hat. I'll be listing those separately and as part of a set at Tawny Bee. Check it out if you like!
I also appliqued some pretty cute Goombas onto a tank top for myself and a t-shirt for Logan. I made the Goomba pattern myself, cut it out of felt and hand-sewed it to the shirts while Logan and Terry were playing Super Mario - fitting don't ya think? Mama and kiddo twins - awwwww!

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping, bbq-ing, playing in the yard, Stars N Strollers (we went to see Date Night and it's highly recommended!) and of course the most exciting place of all for little kids - Tinkertown!

Logan's new favourite ride is the swings. Last year he was too small to go on them, but this time around he got to ride twice!

Daddy and Logan rode the train. Mommy stayed on the sidelines with Laney who was having a nap.

Actually I think we both needed a nap! Too much sun!

How was your weekend? I hope you enjoyed the sun (or the rain, wind, cold as the case may be).
