I LOVE my nephews who are now 4 and 5 years old. When I moved to Ontario in 2006, they lived in Ireland. I never flew home all that often and two summer’s ago they finally made the big move over to Newfoundland. Now? I fly home as often as possible which is just 2-3 times per year. But it’s still better than waiting over a year to meet my nephew, ever.
I almost forget to see the rest of my family and friends when I’m home because I’m so busy hanging out with the lil’ dudes.
I surprised Kelan at kindergarten and from there we spent the day with his Mom/my Sister-In-Law and was downtown for the majority of it. I carried him on my shoulders most of the way. CrossFit muscles put to use. Ugh, just adorable. I also surprised Ruairi at school but I think I spooked him a little since he thought I was someone else until I smiled at him and spoke his name. Oops.I even
made asked Kelan carry my brand new Fossil purse for a while. He rocked it… and told me he loved the color. This kid’s got style, I mean look at his pose.
I took them to the local climbing gym for their first rock climbing experience. Sure I’m an ol’ hen at this gig. Can you believe I’ve been climbing for 17 years? I shouldn’t say that too loud, makes me feel old.
That wasn’t the only time I popped into the climbing gym when I was home. I met up with my three climbing friends!
Johanna and I…yay buddies! She’s now engaged — wahooo!!! Aw man. I just noticed you can’t see her blingy ring in the photograph. Can’t be hiding that rock Johanna.
My new favorite photo of the three of us. All finished climbing and getting ready to head out.Whewf. Busy climbing days for sure. I’ll be back with another re-cap. Most likely all about my nephews no less. Hope ya don’t mind!
