Yet another spin around the sun

A Walk to the Park

Pulling Wagons To Park
There used to be a day when most of the cousins enjoyed a walk to the park - now they seem to enjoy sleeping.  Early (like 9am Saturday) sleep seemed to take the older cousins - only Chrissy, Justin and Kayla were up.  Eager to go do something, we went for a walk to the Park.  It was still a little moist but we brought towels to dry things off.

Most of the toys are just as much fun wet and covered with sand as they are when, well, they are always covered in sand.  We did our best job drying things off so little bums didn't get too cold.

This year, one of the favorites seemed to be the tire swing.  Both Kayla and Justin fit in the swing and they both seemed to like a good spin around.

Those older kids have to wake up some time!  Tired, we returned to the house for a late breakfast and the option to torment the older kids - some of which were reluctantly awake.

Family Shots
This year was particularly rainy so trying to get everyone to stand on the rock seemed to be pushing it.  Given the number of wet heads, I think we were earlier this year than last.  Thanks everyone for your patience putting up with this ritual.

Back at the Farm

Toys Of Different Scale
This year, I spent Christmas with the parents in Victoria.  For boxing day we went up island to visit the relatives and one evening we hung out on the farm.  Being set on the leeward side of the mountains that run up the spine of the Island, sunsets are prolonged affairs that bathe the fields in soft reflected light - one of my favorite lighting environments.  Kayla and Justin were nice enough to join me for a walk down to the creek in the lower fields.
