A play day with Avery

Laurie came down with Avery for the weekend today, and he came to our house to play. We had so much fun. We went to the park where there was a wading pool for the little kids, and played there for a couple of hours. It was really hot, but so much fun. It was so hot, that I abandoned all restraint, and decided to sit down in the wading pool, fully clothed. It felt so good. But, I suspect that, after we finished at the park and went over to order the pizza, it must have looked a little strange to have this lady walk into the restaurant in wet jeans. LOL!!
After we all had our pizza for supper we went out into the back yard to play. I have been dreaming about this happening ever since we moved in here, being able to see Avery playing in the yard, and today was the day.
Back when Noel was little, one of his favourite toys were these small little airplanes. He used to love going out with his daddy to play with them. We saw some of them at the checkout the last time we were in Canadian Tire, and grabbed some, thinking it would be fun to see Noel Playing with his favourite toy with his son. We were right. Avery couldn't quite get the concept of throwing them, but he sure had the chase and get them and bring them back to Daddy or Grampy to throw game down pat. It brought back some great memories of doing the same with Noel.

 Matt brought out a remote control helicopter that had Avery absolutely fascinated. It was so much  fun watching my 3 boys playing together with the planes and helicopter.
 Noel showed Avery how the remote control worked, and the look on Avery's face when he moved the knob and made the helicopter move was priceless. Such a wonderful day, filled with family and love. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of loving family.


  1. Looks like everyone had fun, even the big boys!

  2. What fun to share in your special day!

  3. Sounds like such a fantastic and fun visit! Yay for sitting down in the pool with your clothes on! ♥♥♥

  4. I think that Avery is cuter every time you post pics of him!
    Glad to see all your "boys" playing together so nicely too!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
