March RoundUp

March was a super fun month for us.  The boys are getting to that great stage where we can do all kinds of fun things together.   Really it's that Nathan is getting old enough that hockey games and movies can hold his attention and he doesn't need to nap. 

The boys were lucky enough to go to a couple of Hitmen hockey games.  We were given some tickets for Christmas as well as the boys were given some while standing in line for the show.  It was Nathan's first time going to the Saddledome and he loved it.  Darryl, Lucas and Elliot also went to a Roughnecks games, which is the lacrosse team here in the city.   So lots of weekends spent on the train and at the Saddledome. 

The last week of March we also had March break, so that provided us with lots of opportunities to do fun stuff, we went skiing and Lucas and I went to the pool at SAIT, where we spent an hour jumping off the diving board. 
We also went to the zoo and spent an hour in line waiting for the penguins, which were super cool, even though our toes were like ice.  I forgot how much I love the zoo.  I think my favorite (besides the gorillas) is sitting in the butterfly room.  It's warm and green and reminds me of summer.  
We also had the end of gymnastics which was lots of fun.  Lucas enjoyed taking a class with his best buddy Elliot.  Nathan also had a really good time with his gymnastics. 

This weekend we celebrated Earth Hour (which Nathan keeps calling Space day).  We lit candles and read books and then we laid in bed and told stories.  The boys laughed and laughed.  Nathan worked to make Nathan laugh and it worked, Lucas laughed till no sound was coming out. 

One of the other highlights of the month was Tammy and I went to see Steven Page.  We saw him at the Gateway, which is the bar at SAIT and it was so good.  So much better then I expected.   He sang all the best Steve Barenaked Ladies songs and some of his new ones.  His voice was great, just as great as I remember.  And although I'll always be sad that him and Ed don't make music together it was great to see him again and be in such a small venue.  It was definitely a highlight of the month.

Till Next Month (and many more concerts)
