It was a little cool this week-end, but we made sure to get out and enjoy the fresh air each day.
Friday was our stroller walk at Colonel Danforth Park. The temperatures had definitely dropped by the time we arrived at the parking lot to meet the other moms, but we didn’t let that stop us. It’s always a great group of ladies to chat with. This week there were a few women asking me about cloth diapering-tips, tricks, brands I like, etc. We chatted about that most of the way down and on the way back there was some discussion about sign language (I took Paige to sign language classes when she was 3.5 months old) and feeding solids to our little ones. The discussion about cloth diapers got me thinking that maybe I should write some posts on the things I have learned since starting to cloth diaper and to review some of my favourite companies, so stay tuned for that.
Paige was a little fussy since she decided she wanted to be carried rather than sit in the stroller so here are a couple of the ladies helping me get her on my back. Paige had not slept so well the night before again. We have discovered the cause of it and it we don’t think it was teething as we originally suspected, but rather carrots. So I guess we will be avoiding carrots for a while and will try it again come the summer.
tSaturday we headed to Raglan to Purple Woods conservation area for the Maple Syrup festival. There is a nice, short little trail down to the sugar shack where they were demonstrating how they heat the sap to make the syrup. Along the trail they had made teepees out of fir trees and were showing the traditional way of making maple syrup over the fire. We didn’t get out on the wagon ride since we were a little late for that. Paige was having a great time in the backup with all of the new things to see and people to watch.
