More carnivals...bubbles...and lululemon for kids! Oh my

The weather has not exactly been stellar the past couple of days.
As in 55 degrees and rainy yesterday.
My husband was complaining that it is 115 degrees and super humid back home.
I won't complain:) I will take the 55 and rainy.
Today is a work day for me.  All I can say is that a break from "bling" is not a good thing when it comes to my hands. Even 2 days from not making patterns and my hands slow down and stiffen up. So today I am getting back into the swing o things.
I am also working on Holiday Items...so if there is anything in particular you would like to see...put it in the comments and I will see what I can do.

We went to Callaway park the other day. Basically a permanent amusement park on the outskirts of Calgary. The kids had a good time...thats all that matters right. Unfortunately I got terrible photos of it...so I am too embarrassed to post them.  I think there had to be some grease on Peyton's lens...probably from all the carnivals we go to:)

We then had a nice bbq at home.
The kids played in the bubbles. I love bubbles. I do not think there is a bubble maker that I have not purchased at least once in my life. Why I love them so? I have no idea...but they make for fun pics too.
We even had them on our feet.
Not sure what we were doing here...maybe trying to catch them on our tongue?
Did she really think this was going to work?

Anyways...we had bubbles everywhere...including our hair...so the girls needed a major shower.
My kids waste soooo much time when I tell them they need a shower back home...but here...they are like "OK!!!"  Why?  Because my mom and dad have two of the best showers ever.
The newest one being completed just a month or so ago. It used to be the hallway bathroom that my sister and I used growing up...now it is some heated floor, 10 headed steam shower craziness.
They like it.
This is the heated towel bar that apparently moonlights as a blanket warmer.
And this sink...which is one of a matching set
Has a booboo courtesy of one of my family members.
Lets just say it was not either of my children...or myself.
Hmmm...interesting huh.
We might not be invited back next summer lol.

Ok...lunch is calling. Gotta go make something and then get back to work.
Oh geesh...the lululemon in the title.
Well...I love Calgary for many things...and now I can add the lululemon store for kids...it is actually called Ivivva, however it is just a branch of the lulu empire.  There are only 3 stores so far, Calgary, Victoria and Vancouver...but I guarantee there will be more...many many more...and I will shop at all of them:)
My kids were in heaven.  They love comfy, stretchy, cozy wear.  It's a genius store...really it is.  Ya gotta see it to believe it.  You can even design and make your own tees in there! Love that.
