Our routine was simple: we would get up, do whatever we needed to do in the bathroom, then walk around the backyard and neighbourhood. And since almost everyone was still asleep, we were able to enjoy our daily walks in peace and quiet. The area had a common playground for kids so you can imagine our girls enjoyed going there each day where they had it all to themselves. Here are a few pictures of some of those precious mornings:
And if they were tired, they would play hide-and-seek around the house
Or peek through the holes of the fence to see what was happening at the other side
Or pick up twigs and leaves from the grass.
There was even a time when we saw a squirrel scamper on the wall before disappearing up this maple tree.
Stay tuned for more posts about our vacation. I still have more stories and photos to share!
