Birthdays, Playgrounds, Ferries

We are enjoying our second week in Canada. Happy not to have our heads spinning, thinking we should be sleeping!
We've visited Walmart, Costco, Old Navy.... so many choices, so many sales. :)
Last week, we celebrated my youngest's 6th birthday. This was his first birthday in Canada since he was born, which made it extra special. The grandparents were gathered around, as well as many aunts and uncles.

Playgrounds are a huge novelty! With the cool spring gracing the island and much of Canada, we were too cold to venture very far from the fireplace. As well, a constant drizzle kept things damp much of last week. There was one afternoon however, when an aunty wanted to take the kids to the playground. This was a huge hit of course!

After saving their allowance, birthday money, and gifts over the year, the kids were really happy to spend it on Lego products here. In Madagascar, the Lego selection is small, and fairly expensive. So they were thrilled to be able to afford some larger sets in Canada.

The next couple of weeks will be spent on the mainland, catching up with more family and friends, and our home church.
