Easter Canada!




Trips...trips and more trips! The girls and I spent a couple weeks up at my parents in Ottawa while Brandon had lab and lecture finals. We spent most of our time blowing noses and coughing, but managed to have a good time. Elle was in heaven with all the cousins running around and Bryn quickly learned how to go up stairs. One of the main reasons we went up was because Grandma Ellingson came out from Alberta. This was the first time I have seen her in 2 years! We celebrated by going out to eat at more places than I've gone in a year and Grandma eating skor blizzards. We've been adjusting back to normal and enjoying Brandon's break in school.

So...since Brandon has 2 weeks of no school...what should we do? Any suggestions? How would you spend these 2 weeks?

well you could plant a garden if it wasn't snowing, maybe you should make a snow man instead! If I had two weeks of family time and two little girls who haven't seen much of their dad, and a mom who might want a little break, I might try to arrange at least a few hours of Dad and daughters time so mom can do what ever she wants! And don't forget about date nights or days for Mom and Dad. Enjoy gj

well, fist off you should get Elle a motorbike to go along with her head gear. And then you should probably hike something.

I'd be looking for a beach real fast- like maybe one close to my brother's place (who happens to be heading off to china soon)- then I would get a book- some sand toys and I'd sit there in the sun for 2 or 3 days, while the girls dug and built sand castles and ate sand and Brandon did what ever he would want to do at a beach. In fact- why are you still sitting there reading this- go find a beach girl!! Mom

Beaches are lame. You should go to Red Chinar instead.
