Finley's Spring Concert



Last week Finley’s Tuesday/Thursday preschool held their spring concert.  She had been sick all week with a terrible cold and had not made it to either of her schools but she was feeling up to going to her concert!
She noticed us when this photo was taken
Singing her little heart out
After it was over, we were invited into their classroom where we got a homemade card and flower for coming to their concert.  This concert was so much better then the christmas one, I wish I had recorded it because it was pretty funny.  At one point they counted in english, french and spanish in a song and Finley did english all 3 times.  It was hilarious.  Finley was by far the loudest kid singing in her class.  Greg and I quite enjoyed it!!

Aggie Days



A few weekends ago on a blizzardy Saturday, we headed down to Aggie Days at the Stampede Grounds.  Aggie Days is designed to teach children about farm life in rural Alberta.  It was no surprise that the girls had a great time but there was one disappointment.  I will save that until the end though…
Watching the Bunny races.  There is actually a club in Calgary where you can take your pet bunny and do obstacle courses and things with them.  Who knew?
Checking out the geese
Loved the pattern on this pig.  How could you possibly want to eat this??  As soon as Finley saw this she was like Pork Chops!  I keep waiting for the day everything kinda clicks together in her head and we become vegans.  Greg won’t be laughing then!
You can’t really tell but Penelope had the biggest smile ever on her face hugging this cow
Looking at the dairy cow.  I sometimes wonder if it be cheaper to buy our own dairy cow to milk instead of buying our 12-16L of milk that we do per week.
The Black Angus Cows are my most favorite!  I would like to own a farm so i can have lots of them but not eat them.  Just for pets.  Greg thinks I am completely crazy but I love how sleek they look!
Checking out the horses
Penelope wasn’t too sure of this sheep when it licked her hands
All ready for Stampede!
Learning about different kinds of grain and how it gets from seed to our home.  I especially liked the big Auger they had on display.  If you watch The Office, it will make more sense.  
This is how much poop a draft horse poops in one day.  Penelope loved it.  She even went and touched it.  It was pretty gross.
Penelope learning how to rope
She quite enjoyed this!
So the girls had a great time and it wasn’t too bad considering how crazy busy Aggie Days is but the one disappointment: No camels.  Finley is obsessed with camels and was upset there were none.

Easter



Easter morning was quiet at our house this year.  We didn’t host a big dinner with family visiting and we didn’t head back to SK either.  But the girls had a great time hunting for Easter Eggs.

Their Easter Baskets full of all things princessy
Penelope had to look for yellow and blue eggs
Showing off their Easter Egg finds that were full of jelly beans and hair clips

Pearce Estate Wetlands



On Easter Saturday we went for a walk at Pearce Estate Wetlands which surrounds the Bow Habitat Station.  The day before Grandma Jen had saw some fish so the girls were very much hoping to see a Rainbow Trout.  I have never been to the Bow Habitat Station or this park but I can’t wait to do the entire park and the station!!  The girls had so much fun!!
