Public swim.

Dare I say it, summer is finally here. With warm temperatures and sunny skies it's a common occurance to see the family playing outside. Malcolm particularly enjoys playing with the hose, watering can, bubbles and whatever else he can get his hands on. He's been concentrating on piling rocks and moving them from one location to another. I have to say the kid's got some good dexterity.

It's nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the backyard. Summers are short in Vancouver and we really do have to take advantage of the good weather while it's here. I like chasing after all the squirrels and birds, keeps me active. Here are some pictures from that last few days:

Malcolm playing with his wooden cars in the backyard. Tracey and Roger have tried to make choices that have less impact on the environment, namely reducing the amount of plastic they purchase. These were two wooden cars bought at the local kids store for $1.70.

Here's Malcolm's first dip in the pool since Hawaii. He did pretty well, too bad the kiddie pool was closed. Apparently there were issues with the chlorine balance. They'll try again soon.

Maybe Malcolm will be able to go down the slide next year.
