oh canada

well we have been back in canada for five days now and it feels great (except the humidity, although it hasn't been that bad).

right now we are in barrie. not much seems to have changed, some new construction here and there but that can be expected. it doesn't feel like we are on a real vacation because of the visits with family and friends. it just feels like we are at each place for a long weekend.

kai has had fun playing with all of the kids we have been visiting with; their playtime together hasn't skipped a beat.

yesterday we went to a local farm and picked strawberries. kai had a blast. nancy (grandma) showed him how to pick the berries but he was intent on staying with becky as they moved down the row. at one point she moved over a row and instead of walking through the row of strawberries he went all the way to the end of the row and as he walked up behind me politely said "excuse me dad, i need to get to mom." as he passed by me, he was carring his basket with all of the berries he had picked. he carried that basket all the way to the van, never letting anyone help him. as we were riding on the wagon back to the parking lot i asked him how many berries he ate, he replied "three".
