Happy 9th Birthday Moxie!!

Moxie-licious turned 9 today! We started the day with our traditional donut breakfast and then I sent all 3 kids off to Peterborough Academy of Performing Arts theatre camp (Amazingly appropriate – and just plain amazing) on a sugar high!  Afterwards there was the usual (but never boring) dinner, cake and presents!! I can’t believe that…

Day 19: Vancouver, BC

We woke up late… and slowly….
