3rd Birthday and ear infections

For their 3rd birthday, we decided to see how they would do in a real restaurant.  So we figured it would be a good experiment if we took them on their birthday which was a Wednesday night so it wouldn't be to crowded.
Siam Lotus is a Thai restaurant that we haven't been to since before the kids were born.  Everything went really well, about what I expected.  They were well behaved until dessert.  The 5 min we had to wait for the fried banana was a bit much at that 7 pm.  But we had fun and the kids love shrimp pad Thai.

The other 2 pics are from today when we took Aidan to the doctor.  Of course as soon as we get home, Kira starts saying she isn't feeling well either and she has a temperature, so back to the doctors office tomorrow.  They've been sick a lot this winter, which apparently is the norm.  Seriously been to see the pediatrician 5 times in the past 3 weeks.

Kira like to sing and for some reason she likes for me to sing a lullabye.  I'm assuming she's tone deaf, because she seems to enjoy it.

missed the moment

Since our construction is on hold until my contractor is out of the hospital,

here's video of the kids playing at the local mall play area. They are helping each other up on the bridge, but it's very slippery. Kira trys to help Aidan up the slippery side. Of course i stopped recording just before he actually gets up on top. The second video is just after she helped him get on the bridge.

And here's the payoff:

One other of Aidan not quite judging the balance point while trying to help Kira up onto the bridge, although if you look really carefully, Kira is just pulling Aidan down. She then runs away...little stinker!:

The renovation ills

So my contractor came down with pneumonia and was in the hospital for a week. He was making great progress, and now i know why, at the expense of his health.

Either way, before the pause in the construction, we were just starting the painting, and the tiles. Let me say that picking out colors was more arduous than i expected.

Here are a couple pics i took a few weeks ago, after a snow storm.

Construction makes progress.

Sorry about the lack of updates lately.  He whole family has been sick for past couple weeks.

I do have some photos and videos ill be posting over the next few days.

Here's one of Mandy anxiously awaiting the completion of the renovation project.  As a city dog, she really doesn't like dirt or grass and she really does prefer being indoors.

You better....or else! Now I know what the else is.

So this is part2 of the video with the pop on pals. Kira shows what the else is, if she doesn't get her wheels.

We did eventually get her another set of wheels so this won't be happening on a regular basis.

You better....or else?

To set this up, the kids got these Pop on Pals toys as an early Christmas gift.

It came with 2 truck bodies, but only 1 set of wheels. This allows for the child to change the vehicle by switching out the body. However, as we have often found, its very difficult to get 2-3 year olds to share anything. Especially when its a new toy.

Kira immediately started playing with the extra vehicle body, but started asking for wheels in a very specific phrasing.

I'm not sure where she gets this language from, but i'm just going to blame the pre-school.

yea...thats it.

Also, she did name the little girl doll right after this to 'Mila'.
