Oye. The Summer is going by rather quickly. I’ve been meaning to post but alas, it has been a bit of a whirlwind start to the season. We started off the Summer, the weekend of my 40th birthday, with a trip to the Emergency room with Oscar. A few hours after being admitted, my brave little man was in surgery getting his appendix taken out. The surgeons were amazing, and the nurses taking care of him afterwards were also fantastic. I stayed at the hospital every night, sleeping on one of those chairs that turn into a bed (that was surprisingly comfy). It was the worst seeing Oscar in pain, but I was so thankful that we knew what was going on and there was a solution to it.
The appendicitis was so bad, that it took awhile for him to recover – but I’m happy to report that a few days after getting home (he had to stay a few days), he was chomping down popsicles and getting some of the Oscar-isms back. He was most excited to make it home in time for the release of Super Mario Maker 2 on the Switch. And Nintendo Canada was lovely enough to notice (I made reference to it on Instagram) – and sent him this lovely gift of a sweet note, some sticker sheets and Mario Hard Hats…
A week after he got home from the hospital, we headed to Haute Goat near Toronto, a birthday gift / expedition. Here you get to hang out with goats (GOATS!) and at the end of the day sit on the grass and snuggle with them. My Mom adores goats, and we brought her along. Honestly, it was THE best experience ever.
Seriously, goats are hilarious.
The baby goats weren’t great at following the pack, so Oscar was right in there helping get them moving.
I mean. That FACE.
New planters from HomeSense got some Lavender – I’ve decided that Lavender not only smells beautiful, but they make a gorgeous statement when planted in groups. Bring on more lavender next year.
