The Last Maple Syrup

Sunday, April 21 2018

Maman was working today. It was the last day for boiling maple sap. Papa worked at the boiler and the boys had a fun day in the sunshine/snow with their friends, Ross and Fiona. Grant joined them. They snacked on popcorn.  Boots relaxed in his spot in the sun.

The new dining shelter was impressive.  Papa got the barbeque working and we enjoyed BBQed sausages with maple syrup followed by BBQed waffles with fruit and maple syrup.

After lunch, Papa returned to the bubbling sap and the kids had more fun outdoors.  Sam and Ross made a “water slide” and a teeter-totter while David and Fiona shared a swing. Then Sam and Ross had some fun in the hammock.  Finally, they got Grant to help them make a “beaver lodge” of sticks. It was a fun day.

An Icy Holiday

Monday, April 16 2018

A freezing rain storm meant no school for the Chelsea boys today.  Papa brought Boots and them over for a day at 9 Lambert. David and Barbara made some chocolate bread pudding. The boys played with toys, David tried a computer puzzle and then the boys had fun with Wii Fit. Freezing rain and ice pellets fell so we stayed inside.  We enjoyed some hot chocolate, pasta and David’s pudding at lunch.  Then Grant played Super Mario with the boys while ice pellets and tree branches fell outside.  It was cozy and fun for us all inside. Maman picked the boys and Boots up later in the afternoon.

Wildlife Show

Saturday, April 7 2018

“Alpacas, anacondas, bearded dragons — and perhaps the biggest attraction of all, Linus the sloth — will be taking over the Nepean Sportsplex this weekend for a massive wildlife exhibit. Animal rescue shelter Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo — in collaboration with Animal Ambassadors and the Monalea Petting Zoo — are running the event at the Sportsplex, 1701 Woodroffe Ave., which lasts until Sunday.” Ottawa Citizen

Papa and Maman had booked a squash game on Sunday at the Sportsplex.  Barbara and Grant invited the boys to the amazing wildlife show, also at the Sportsplex.  The photos speak for themselves…

After the show, the boys made a lego craft. We had dinner together at 9 Lambert and viewed the animal photos together so the boys could share their experiences.
