"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2019"

Jackson: He wasn't keen on dogs until we got our own and now, much like me, he's all in and 
LOVES our babies so much. 

Lily: She had a girlfriend over on Saturday and they spent much of the day playing with make-up and making videos. I lured them outside for some photos in the sunshine and snapped this one of her.

Jackson: My boy had another big week. He won the Mike Fraser Junior Official of the Year at the Hockey Awards here in PR and then landed his first part-time job at the golf course. Go Jackson Go!

Lily: She's my girl, my muse and always game for photos. My Flower in the blossoms makes my heart burst. Scroll to see the other options this week. It was hard to pick.

Jackson: Standing on a beach in Mazatlan, Mexico. He did as I requested all week and sent me a text every day to let me know what he was up to. He's a lucky guy to have had the experience. He had a super trip and loads of fun but I sure cried when he came home and hugged me. I didn't think I'd react the way I did about him being away for 8 days. It was hard. 

Lily: Her light kept my mind off of missing my boy too much. I took this pic of her on Granville St. in Vancouver. We spent a few days in the city wandering, shopping, getting our nails done and eating good food. It was a great distraction.

Jackson: I took this photo as he walked away from me to drop his bags in his friends family vehicle before they took him away for 8 days to Mexico. He's currently living it up on the beaches of Mazatlan. It was tough for me to say goodbye but he's been doing as I asked and sending me pictures everyday with lots of texts. I'm glad he's having such a good time. 

Lily: My girl has been a great sport (and shoulder to cry on when I said goodbye) while her brother is away. I felt the need to get out of town, so we dropped her bro off in Vancouver then headed south to Washington State where we met one of our besties and some cousins to see the flowers in Mount Vernon, to shop in Lynwood and check out Pike Place and the Troll downtown Seattle. Scroll down to see all the pics. We are back in Vancouver where we have met up with Neil who is here for meetings. We are staying at the Hyatt downtown for a couple more days before we head home to get some stuff done before Jackson returns. It's been a great Spring Break so far.

Jackson: My boy started his Spring Break off with a trip to Chemainus for a hockey tourney where his team placed second. Back in PR to be a linesman for PeeWee Hockey Provincials, a great opportunity and good money in his pocket. Later this week he heads to Mazatlan, Mexico with a friend and his family. He's only 15 but living his best life. 

Lily: I actually didn't take any photos of my girl this week so resorted to this selfie I found on her phone. Her and I are headed to the city and south of the border for a few days to shop and eat and get away from reality for a few days. Not quite the Mexican vacation her brother is going on but we will eat at our favourite Mexican place in Burlington so not a total loss. :)

Below is the jump for joy on the last day of school before we started our two weeks of no early get-ups, no making lunches and no afterschool activities besides two hockey tourneys. Yippee!!!

Jackson: Pretty much daily if the weather is good, he stays outside once 
we get home from school and shoots some hoops for a bit. 

Lily: It was a big week for my girl at the Festival of Performing Arts here in Powell River. She wrote and recited her own poem and also performed in two numbers for her musical theatre group. 
She LOVES being on the stage.

Jackson & Lily: Another week full of activities however minimal to talk about. I can hardly wait for Spring Break to begin in a couple of weeks so we can take a break from the busy.
