Fun & games at the new house

We are settled in a bit more out here now, although there is still a ways to go. I have been busy building a wall for our suite (we have a tenant already), and Val has her hands full with the kids. Some added fun this week was that the old washing machine that came with the house gave up the ghost. Our new set came today - swanky front loaders that look like they should control the space shuttle as well as wash & dry clothes. We decided a higher quality set was worth the $$ because we have years of baby/toddler laundry ahead...

Some recent pictures for your enjoyment:

Our "wee controller" playing with his new Thomas wooden train set, with an engineer-in-waiting watching intently

Tub time

Jumping on mommy & daddy's bed - a new favourite pastime, and a good way to tire him out before bed...

Coming home from our (almost) daily bicycle trailer ride. Tonight we went to a new play park not far from our house. There is a nice paved trail down by a river close by where we can go feed ducks, go over bridges, and "go fast, Daddy, go fast." It seems that cycle commuting is only the beginning of my daily exercise regimen - but Daddy likes it as much as Elijah.

My reno project. It seems we can never buy a house that needs nothing! (At least this house needs LESS than the old one). This is the new wall that separates our new downstairs den/guest room from the suite. Our first guests Jan & Cindy are coming soon, and I'm hoping to have the drywall completely done by then.
