Jude is 8 years old!
My mama heart can’t believe it. I swear he was just a little babe not too long ago, but then I blinked! Mamas, big tip over here- DON’T BLINK!
Although loads of things are changing- he’s getting taller, smarter and funnier (yes, he’s a little joker nowadays). He loves to grab my phone and capture his surroundings. Totally becoming a shoefie expert! 😂
There are just as many things that haven’t- Train collector, Nutella Fanatic and Fruit connoisseur, just to name a few.
Bringing it back to OG blogging days…
A couple of weeks ago, when I had the lovely opportunity to work with Quartier DIX30 (p.s. this was literally one of my dream collaborations and the fact that it’s my number 1 destination for yummy restos and shopping), I was reminded of my old blog posts. Sharing the fun things we did as a family, like our apple picking adventure and our trip to Stowe, Vermont. I used to LOVE documenting these memories, but somewhere down the line, I just stopped. Not super clear on my reasoning for it, but needless to say I’M BRINGING THEM BACK!!
This post is pretty much a photo dump of Jude’s Ghost Train birthday party and things we’ve been up to.
Although it pretty much felt like Halloween in July, can we admit how adorable this ghost train birthday party came together? The Mr and I made a little DIY cardboard train with steam coming out of the funnel, aka a balloon garland that left my fingers sore for days. For the hanging ghosts, I blew up a couple of balloons, drew some eyes with a black sharpie, and draped over cutout sheets of cheesecloth.
HOORAY for cute and simple DIYs!
I feel like I’m already mentally preparing myself for another 8 years of train-themed parties. You know, being that this is our 6th one. I’m willing to bet money that this is an ever-lasting love for trains.
And speaking of trains…
You know we’ve been to our usual stomping ground, the Exporail, which is the largest train museum in North America!
A bittersweet final lunch date in Montreal with the Mr’s grandma before she moved to Quebec City. It’s about 2 and a half hours drive from the city, so we’ll be sure to visit as much as we can!
All the morning playtime with Daddy!
I hope you enjoyed this type of post, as I’ll be sure to do one of these every month or so!
