Marie and I spent a few days this weekend in Montreal to attend the baby shower for William on Saturday and a late Mothers Day supper for Marie on Friday at one of the kids favourite little tucked-away cafes for some homemade Mexican food. Seems it is all we eat these days but we both have acquired a taste for it after our two long stays in Mexico and eating at home with Phil and Fer. Saturday morning I took Amy to Melons and Clémentines, a boutique specializing in lingerie and apparel for nursing mothers where Fernanda has been working this past winter. Saturday mornings they invite young children to gather for musical games and Amy seems to enjoy going so I volunteered to take her while Marie stayed behind and helped Fer prepare for the baby shower. Amy especially liked dancing when the music was more upbeat and behaved very well in the company of the other seven or eight kids.
As it was a girls only event in the afternoon Phil and I took Amy for a walk to the big park on Sherbrooke that has a great of children's outdoor playground and spent two hours enjoying one another's company while Amy ran around trying the slides, swings and climbing nets. She loved the bigger kids swings and fell a few times but bravely climbed back on. I couldn't believe she is just two!
We three got back to the house in time to say hello and goodbye to some of the ladies while the others stayed for supper. Lara and Christina were there and we all had a great evening together. Unfortunately we didn't get to see Joshua this time but Lara assured me he was well. Marie took some photos of the baby shower which I have included below and a few I took before everyone left. We headed back home the next day at noon after giving Amy a blowup pool to play in in the back yard and promised to see everyone again soon. Meantime back to work on the bathroom! gws
