Happy Belated Easter Everyone!

April has been an incredibly crazy month for Wyatt and I! We had a wonderful trip to BC and spent a lot of much needed time with my family. Wyatt got to know his older cousins, Devon and Wesley, his Auntie Kellie and his Grandma Trena.

When it was time to go home we headed up to Edmonton where we picked up my cousin Victoria who came all the way from Ottawa to see us, and we picked up Wyatt's 13 year old niece, Kailey before heading home. Kailey and Victoria were here for a week, and spent Easter with us :)

Tuesday I took Kailey home and dropped Victoria off at her hotel (her flight left at 6 the next morning), and got home in time to go to bed. The next day I had dress rehearsal for our local choir's spring show. Thursday and yesterday I had shows in the evening, and in a couple hours I leave to do our last show...

So I figured I would squeeze an adventure into our busy schedule, considering I've been meaning to do an Easter Adventure for over a week!

We had an awesome month, but I'll be glad to have a day with nothing to do tomorrow :)

We're going on HOLIDAYS!!! Wyatt and myself, that is. Unfortunately Lance is going to have to stay behind for calving, but Monday morning Wyatt and I are bringing my Mom back down south and staying there for a week or so.

So unless my sister loans us a spot in our living room, we probably won't be doing an adventure until we get back on the 21st of April :)

I also want to throw out a happy birthday to my big sister, Robin :)

Wyatt just wants everyone to know what he'll be doing when he goes to BC:

Wyatt's Ark

My Mom is here!!! I couldn't be happier! She caught a ride with a friend and Wyatt and I got in the SUV and picked her up on the road :)

My Mom is half of the reason I am able to pull off half of these scenes, as she has made quite a few of the blankets and quilts seen in Wyatt's adventures... most memorable of which is probably the Green blanket/quilt I use for the grass.

Upon her arrival yesterday, she and I went fabric shopping where we found a panel of fabric with Noah's Ark on it. Hence the inspiration for today's adventure :)

Sir Lance-jr-alot

Lance and I got to thinking that we needed a fire breathing dragon for our little prince... and a sword, but considering that everything put in his hand tends to end up in his mouth lately (and trust me, it did) we figured that a large spoon would be safer.

A couple days ago we found out that Lance will be coaching bantam football this year (7-9 year olds); he will be coaching the offensive line, which is what he played in high school. So I figured that today Wyatt and I would do a football adventure for his Dad, as I know that Lance is pretty excited at the prospect of having someone to play football with in the future. That being said, Wyatt could grow up to be a ballet dancer for all I care as long as he is doing what he loves. In the mean time, however, I can pose him in whatever scene I want, and today that scene was football!

Wyatt's Ride

This one is for my Dad. I was considering doing an adventure that had something to do with April fools day, but I couldn't think of anything, and I got some of the most anticipated news since Wyatt was born... my Mom is coming up to visit us one week from today!!

I couldn't be more excited considering she has yet to meet him face to face. Of course this makes me very happy, but it is bittersweet knowing that my Dad will not be joining her... in person anyway.

My Dad passed away in 2008 from cancer. He was (and still is) the gentlest, most loving man I know, although Lance is a close second. We miss him dearly and it hurts my heart to know that Wyatt will never get a chance to meet his Papa. So I decided today would be as good a day as any to dedicate one of Wyatt's adventures to my Dad!

Biking was Dad's passion, so I figured this would be appropriate :)
