Garrett & I spent the day in downtown Toronto at Monster Jam. We got to the Skydome at around 10:30am and the line was already around the building. After a relatively short wait in the cold, we went in to look at the trucks and get a picture taken with the driver of Grave Digger.

We had an absolute blast today. There were crashes, there was at least one truck that fell apart while jumping over cars and to top things off, the Canadians won the Quad race against the Americans! Woo!

The only thing missing was Truckasaurus. Maybe next time...

Ninja, Clean You Room!

I think that this will be my new parenting strategy. Garrett is actually getting much better at cleaning his room and this should put him over the top.

Now to see if I can convince Kara about how awesome (and tidy) female ninjas are.

Happy Birthday Julie!

Well, it's that time again. Julie just got another year older! Woo!

Alas, between our work schedules and Garrett having an art class tonight, we didn't get up to anything more rousing than watching an incredibly funny episode of Modern Family. Ah well. The kids made lots of... interesting... gifts for her and I've got a present coming in one of these days, if the shop ever gets it in stock.

Hey, snake-skin knitting bags are hard to come by! It's not my fault she's picky!

I did manage to get most of the big websites on the net to go dark in honour of her birthday though. At least, that's what I'm telling her. Shhhh!

Ski Camp Crystal Lake

Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!

I'm going to stay inside and play The Old Republic all day while everyone else dodges falling space debris and snowflakes. Blech.

Lucky 13!

Well what do you know? It's our 13th anniversary! Woo!

We went out for an early anniversary dinner last week while in Sarnia, but we're going to have a yummy steak dinner here at Casa Del Wager after the kids go to bed.

I also had some flowers ordered for delivery today, but thanks to Sobeys being a bunch of idiots, they spilled the beans. Stupid Sobeys. But it's our 13th anniversary, so we had to have some bad luck creep in there!

At least I'm not this guy :)
