Spring in Calgary

The snow is back. These photos were taken exactly 1 week after the ones last week of Jared in his new sandpit. We had about 20cm's of snow fall over a couple of days. Apparently it is very normal for Calgary at this time of the year since it is the rainy season here but because it hasn't warmed up enough it snows instead of rains. On the whole it is short lived though so it really isn't a big deal and Jared loves playing in the snow so it isn't torture. We had friends over with their 3 kids on Sunday and we even managed a braai!! Well Hannes did anyway ;o)

We have had an exciting few weeks which I will update about as and when we go along but the most exciting so far that I'd like to share is that our family is growing. We are having another baby in December and we are both over the moon with excitement. I was always really sceptical about having a December baby, but after doing lots of healing and growing I realise now that this was written a long time ago and I can't wait to do it all in a wonderful and loving way. In fact in the last few months I have kind of just known that a December baby is on the cards, so this was honestly no surprise when it happened.

Here are the pics taken from our back deck on Sunday.

Spring really is in full bloom over in Calgary ;)

Carol you are going to make the new addition feel very loved and he or she will always have very special memories of their birthday if I know Hannes and yourself!
