Summer List Check-in #2

Despite the busyness of learning our new family dynamics, we've taken the time to play. We are all enjoying having my David home on paternity leave and we're taking full advantage of our time together. Let's get right into it!

My view from the front seat...all three are crammed in the back seat.

  • Dance in the rain: David and Abigail did the honours of checking this one off our list. Abigail loves jumping in puddles and was quite excited when David invited her to play.

  • Home recording studio: David set up the microphone with Garage Band and we recorded our family song All the Gingras babies (a spoof off Beyonce's All the Single ladies). I don't know how to share it here, but if we can figure it out, I'll be sure to.

  • Fireworks: The local baseball team has sponsored nights where they shoot off fireworks after the game. We listened online until a certain point and then we woke up the littles for a late night adventure. Malachi cheered and clapped and proved himself a Gingras through and through (we all love fireworks).

  • Visit 5 Winnipeg landmarks: the Forks is a go to outing for us and we counted that as one landmark for our list. We enjoy walking around and along the river, especially.

  • Assiniboine Park Steam Train: We had our House Group year end wrap up at Assiniboine Park and several of us went on the train. Our littles were so tired, but they enjoyed themselves a lot.

such an outgoing family! Honestly Mr. and Mrs. Gingras, you could probably teach quite a few families about family time and making it a priority :)
