Pieces of Yesterday

We spent the morning with Arrow while Oria was at a sleepover. We kept busy as per a previous post. Arrow then went on to have a 2 1/2 hour nap before we were picked up by uncle Derrick to meet up with Oria at Rib Fest.
We sampled ribs from the majority of the competitors. Oria and Arrow each chose a Popsicle to cool off with. Oria chose a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Arrow a mango and coconut Popsicle. They ran around turning their rib bibs into kites, ran through a maze, did some bouncing and “gymnastics”, bounced in the bouncy castle and made a bracelet. There was a lot of fun things set up for the kids to play. After taking a little break in the shade we moved over to the stage to listen to the band that was playing. Oria danced and I loved watching her. Arrow practiced her balancing on an electrical wire cover. We went back to uncle Derrick’s place. Oria, Marianna and Sara played together making up different games.
A future play date with Orias new friends was made and the very sleepy little people made their way back home for dinner and into bed.
Oria enjoyed her sleepover with the girls and uncle Derrick and aunty Susie.

Mornings with Arrow and Gemma.

While Oria had her sleepover, Arrow, Gemma and I kept busy until Arrow crashed at 10 am.
There was quinoa at the breakfast table, elephant rides on Gemma, pumpkin spice tea around the kitchen table, trips outside, and climbing up and down stairs, swinging inside the hammock, soaking up the sunshine in the backyard, a visit with Buddha, playing at the kitchen sink with water, then a sink bath, a poop in the sink bath and a hose down in the shower. There was a moment when Arrow realized Oria wasn’t joining us for breakfast and started to call for her. 
It was a busy morning and it was only 10!!!

Oria’s favourite moment from yesterday.

Me “Oria what was the best part from your sleepover?”

Oria “Visiting Cairn Park.”

Me “What made that so special for you?”

Oria “I loved seeing the city view from up there.”

A little piece of Oria dancing at Rib Fest yesterday in Esquimalt. Oria learned a few new moves just by watching this guy that was dancing in the corner of the stage.
