What did you do today?

This morning the girl and I went to our local library for storytime. Now I don't know if you've been to your library's storytime yet, but I'm willing to bet that ours kicks your library's butt. Alright, except for Zoey's. Live reptiles trump just about anything else, I'll admit. I've been to storytimes in Toronto, which were pretty fun with lots of songs and a little dancing, and in New York where they might as well have been phoning it in. But here in Ottawa - we make hats.

That's right. Or we colour pictures of fish and cut and paste them into the ocean. This is no garden variety storytime. There's even a giant turtle pool filled with bubble solution. Outside, of course. Oh, you don't take little field trips outside at your library? Didn't think so.

On the way home it started to rain a little, so you know what that means. Cupcakes. With chocolate milk or espresso, depending on the age and preferences of your taste buds. Whoever heard of a flower/coffee shop? We have, and we like it.

After a little crabapple picking at the neighbour's house and before lunch, we squeezed in a little ballet class, by special request. After a decent warm up...

And point... 

...and flex!

...the prima ballerina was ready to put on a show!

All in all, it was a lovely - and terribly girly - Wednesday morning. Just the way we like it over here in the 613.


  1. Is she doing ballet classes!? That is the absolute cutest!! Man, is she flexible!

  2. Ballet classes with mama as a teacher. Cheaper that way, and so far she hasn't surpassed my skill level. :)
