Insta-Friday in real life

Can you believe it's almost June? How does that happen? Winter drags and drags and then suddenly it's summer. We have lost any sort of spring weather around here. This year, we went from snow to heat and humidity within a couple of weeks.

Enough complaining. I'm once again sharing a look at the pictures I took this week on my cell phone. First up, this pic I took of my daughter last weekend on dance photo day. I just love this costume she got for tap class. The hat is too cute. The makeup was a little more than I intended, but she WILL NOT keep still, so it's very difficult to do.

My son also had an eventful weekend, with a morning spent training with his soccer team at the Toronto Football Club.

Daddy took him out for a little treat after all his hard work.

Daddy and the kids have been keeping busy with lots of bike rides too. Me, not so much. My excuse now is that my husband's bike broke so he has to use mine.

Passing the train tracks, they took a shot of this sad memorial.

At least warm weather means barbecuing season. Our favourite barbecue meal is extra-firm tofu with a homemade bbq sauce.

I also made strawberry muffins this week. My daughter said they were "professional." You can find the recipe here. It will soon be strawberry season and I'm looking forward to going picking again.

This weekend, my son has a friend's birthday party to attend and then we have a friend's birthday party to attend.

What about you? Any big plans for the weekend?

  1. Sounds like a good week. We're just hoping to stay cool since it's now in the '90s. I won't complain either but there really was no spring!

    1. Not too many nice days so far, for sure. Now it's rainy today! Oh well. I'll take the good days as they come. ;)

  2. Oh my goodness.... that train track memorial is so sad! :( You captured it beautifully!

    1. Isn't it sad? Like the flowers on the sides of highways. Very tragic.

    2. Very sad. So glad I found your blog! I've bookmarked it!

  3. His daughter a doll with clothes dance.
    These muffins are beautiful, I was hungry!
    About your question, this weekend we will be in a "serenade" the park (Saturday night).
    Big kiss and good weekend


    1. Thank you so much! Enjoy the Saturday night in the park!
