Instead of Memorial Day, Canadians celebrate Victoria Day. It's basically the exact same day if you don't know the significance behind either holiday. It marks the beginning of the summer season, and probably white pants? I don't know. I don't own white pants because they would never stay white for long. I am seven.
For our long weekend, we relaxed a lot, walked to the park close to our house, and on Monday went on a picnic at one of the parks here in Calgary on the river. It was a beautiful day!
She took off her hat a couple of times, and would generally put it back on when we asked her to...
After our picnic dinner, we let her play at the playground equipment. She loved the slide.
I hope everyone has a happy Memorial Day this weekend, and that no one gets stains on their white pants.

Last week, I finally bought myself a zoo pass. I did the math: if I go three times in the year, I'll break even. If I go more, well... yay for going to the zoo for free!
So last week and this week, we have gone to the zoo.
And Calista loves it.
At the heron...
At the hippo...
At the condor...
If she can point to it, she will.
She's getting pretty good at saying "giraffe," although her way sounds more like just "affe."
Calista also roars like a lion every time she sees one, real or a picture, or if you say the word.
And elephants... she has started sticking out her tongue. I think it's to be a trunk? She does it every time, so it obviously means something...
When we encountered a peacock, she wouldn't walk around it or be near it. Instead, she got into the stroller and I was able to protect her.
I'm excited to go to the zoo, hopefully once a week, and let Calista run around, play, explore, and have a good time. And it means I get a bit of a work out, too...!

I had my anatomy scan ultrasound today, which means we have news...
That's right! End of September/beginning of October, we will officially have "one of each."
