Mr Dress Up

Hendrik is frequently seen wandering around the house wearing his bike helmet or his (or my!) sunglasses.  The other day, however, he decided that he really needed a whole outfit: a sun hat, a rain coat, and mommy's sunglasses.  (Each item was brought to daddy with great solemness so that daddy could help him put them on.)

Mother's Day 2012

Mom came over for a visit again this year on Mother's Day, and she and Hendrik and I had a wonderful (though short - Hendrik wasn't really into it!) visit to the Royal Botanical Gardens to see and smell the lilacs!  We also went to a concert on the Saturday night featuring the Bach Elgar Choir (Brian's choir last year) and an Oakville Choir who performed a mega-vespers service in Russian and some other lovely pieces mostly in Latin.  Beautiful music! 
What a blessing it is to be able to spend time with such a wonderful mom and Grandma!  Hendrik had a good time with Grandma, too.  He screamed when he dropped her off in nursery, which made Grandma feel very loved.  :)  Happy (belated) mother's day, mom!  We are blessed to have you in our lives!

These feet are made for walking....

Hendrik does not always walk all the time, but it is certainly becoming his preferred mode of transportation, especially on gravel and cement!  When we went to the park on Sunday morning, he walked the pathway from the playground to the baseball diamond - which is about the length of 1 full soccer field + a baseball diamond.
