B is for bridge

B is for bridge
(not an attempt at artsy photo, something is seriously wrong with our camera)

Today it was cold, drizzly and it had the potential to be an everyone's-bouncing-off-the-walls kinda day, but, lucky for us, Mama M and her duo were up for a park play date. This mama is so glorious she was waiting outside our meet up point, with coffees in hand. Mama M: you rock!

On the chilly walk home, baby girl slept soundly in the Moby, while jr cookie monster made sure to point out all his favourite things: trucks, streetcars, buses and a bridge. We were sharing a Macintosh apple, and it inspired me to come up with the idea to document our Oct/Nov experiences with an 'alphabet scrapbook'. The idea is to associate each letter of the alphabet with something that the kids are into at this moment in time i.e. B is for bridge.
