Sing and Learn

Learning in the Backyard
Attended the Sing and Learn drop in session conducted by the Richmond Family Place at the Cambie Branch Library. The session meets every Monday at from 1-2:30 pm and is open to families with children 0-5 years of age. The StrongStart centers are closed for the Summer break. So, the play and learn drop in program seemed to be a good alternative. The program is also offered at the Family Place's office. I just have not been able to make it to the office yet.

The Sing and Learn program started off with the

Little Drummer

There is never a dull moment when Ayaan is around. First, he decides to color his face and make a circle around his mouth. Then he adds on to the fun by deciding to play music. He took out a pot, put it on his head and started drumming and singing. This little drummer sure knows how to keep himself busy and everyone around him entertained.

Metropolis at Metrotown

Went to Metropolis at Metrotown Mall in Burnaby. A really huge mall with a lot of my favorite stores. Needless to say, my favorite stores these days are usually the stores that cater to the kids in my life. Children's Store, Old Navy, ToysRus and the like. What tops my list of favorites is a

Whistler Trip

Shannon Falls, Squamish BC
Had a great time going up North towards Whistler Mountains. We first took a break at Porteau Cove Marine park and then another stop over at Shannon Falls. I am so glad we stopped at Shannon Falls. The lush green trees, the milky white water falls, and the free flowing river made for some amazing sights that I will treasure for a long time to come. At least until we make it up there again. The drive was also very beautiful and the view of

Getting the House Party Ready

Just want to relax for a little while. I have been getting the house ready for Aaliyah's Birthday party this Friday, July the 13th. We have invited about 65 guests which includes 26 kids. Hummu helped me with the goody bags. I just have to finish them up by filling candy in them. The other stuff is already in there. Once the house is ready, all I will have to worry about is:
1. food
2. cake pick up
3. party games
4. decoration
5. seating
Those are the main things on my mind right now. Hope everything goes as planned.

SportBall-Outdoor Soccer

Registered my darling daughter for some outdoor Soccer practice sessions over the Summer. The session meets once a week for about an hour. It is a good work out in a fun non competitive atmosphere. Each player gets a ball and a jersey. They are introduced to the basics of the game. They also
