Family Fun - Sibe Style

Here in Canada, we were beginning to think Mother Nature and Jack Frost got together and decided to completely skip Spring this year. It seemed like the snow just wasn't going away!
I even went as far as making this meme for my FB pals!


Finally we saw the very last speck of snow leave us. I like winter, but enough was enough!
The whole point in this is that the huskies, my family and I, all had a fantastic weekend enjoying time outdoors on a beautiful Spring day. 

If you follow me on FB, you will know that we were celebrating my oldest daughters birthday.
She turned the big one - two!! Yep, I am now the proud parent of a 12 year old daughter, god help me!
Anyways, the whole family came to spend some time at the house, eat some cake, open some gifts, and draw on the pavement with some sidewalk chalk!! We had a great time!
I was able to snap a few pics of my gorgeous mother walking Mika around, with my youngest daughter.



It was a fabulous day, and definitely a nice change to be able to bring everyone outside in the fresh air to spend time together. I couldn't wait to share our time with my family of readers, so I hope you enjoyed :)

Before you go, I do have a HUGE favor to ask you ;)
Yesterday I did a guest post for a website called 4Knines. 
This is a trial run for me to see whether they want me to be a regular writer for them. A wonderful opportunity. I would be extremely grateful if you all would pop over and show me some comment love, and maybe even share the post. Thanks so much in advance.

  4. I here you about late spring. Situated on the south side of Lake Ontario, we are just starting to see bits of green in the trees and a daffodil or two. But it's still cold enough for a coat.

  10. Oh wow, one more year of being a "tween" and then.. oh you know, BOL! Glad you had a good day to celebrate her birthday.

    Our weather here on the prairies has warmed up nicely, the river has thawed and things are starting to pop up in the garden and flower beds. I will try and send some of that weather to you!

  11. Our winter left after a few hours of snowfall! LOL! Oh, twelve years old is such a milestone. I'll save my prayers for the magic of the teenage years. ♥

  12. Lol! Love that meme. I actually ended up with a tan when walking Bain this weekend, to be honest I actually prefer cold weather and snow. I should probably move up north, ha.

    Heading over to check out your guest post!

  13. "..they can actually hear up to 4 times the distance that we humans can."

    I doubt this very much with Bain, selective hearing INDEED. Lol!

  14. I'm glad that you had a beautiful day for your daughter's birthday. It's amazing how fast time flies by! It was cold around here again today too if it makes you feel any better. Of course, where I'm located, there is actually a part of Canada that is south of me! Congrats on getting that guest post!
