My son loves to dance. This is a bit of a long video but I couldn't figure out which part to edit out.
You will also notice that my daughter has already started to adopt her mother's study habits. If you just rub the book on your head you absorb all the knowledge within. What a clever girl!
Before you all comment on the underwear - he wears it only under duress these days. Gavin is very pro-diaper and very anti-underwear at the moment.

We went out as a family to the grocery store, this is usually a pleasant outing but Gavin was just a bit wound up tonight and he and his Dad had to exit the store before we were finished. Bronwyn and Mom brought the groceries out to the car to find Gavin sitting in the passenger seat beside Daddy. He was just playing about waiting for us. I put Bronwyn in her chair and opened the hatch and started to put groceries in the back. Wes got out to help me.
It is at this point that a wise parent would have decided to either remove the child in the front seat or to at least role the window down. Both adults are out of the vehicle and there is a two year old loose - what could go wrong. Well, I'll tell you - he locked the doors.
Wes banged on the window and pointed to the button and yelled - unlock the door Gavin. I tried yelling from the open hatch but he had also turned the music up. Other shoppers walking by were staring at us! I felt like saying - Yes we are sloppy parents!
Wes found it totally funny - while I was a triffle less amused.
Finally Gavin realized what we were asking and he unlocked the door. Mommy then removed him and strapped him in safely to his car seat.
So you see - lesson learned!

We did, however, have a wonderful day. We went to church, went for lunch (the kids behaved - whoohoo), watered Mom and Dad's plants and went to a gardening centre. When we got home I cut more of the hedge down and weeded while Wes and Gavin made a bird house out of sticks. Bronwyn was napping during this time - a long nap - this is why she is in a mood to party now. Maybe she wants to make the most of her first Canada Day.
I even got to watch a show on TV that interested me - although it was a total bore to everyone else in the family. It was about the great lodges of the Rockies. I just have to admit I love all the grand lovely old hotels that are scattered about in the mountains. If I had more money I'd stay at one every other weekend! But alas we are just wealthy enough to squander all our money on home improvements!
Well I think I should try to get our youngest offspring to go to sleep.
