making memories

I took Grace to the High Park Zoo last weekend. There were little chicks, or ducklings, I'm not sure. We got to hold them and watch them eat and play. There were llamas, and reindeer, and peacocks, and swans. I don't know who had more fun - me or Grace?! It's a beautiful park with so much to do. It makes me sad to think the zoo could be shutting down soon, and I hope they can find enough donations to stay alive. We both had a lovely nap underneath a big oak tree that afternoon.
On Monday, I bought our very first kitchen table. Grace has outgrown her highchair (not because she is too big, but because she wants to sit like a big kid). She is quite happy to sit at the table for meals now, but won't eat until "mommy sit" too. Some of my fondest childhood memories are from sitting at the kitchen table with my family, eating dinner together, blowing out birthday candles, colouring easter eggs, playing board games.

Since we are not the typical 'family' I am making it my mission to instill the same family values in Grace that I had growing up, and make beautiful memories for us to share together.
