..a walk in the park!

Finally some more shots from my walk on last Saturday! In addition to having fun with my ‘Mother’s Day’ sign… I did manage to get some shots of some wildlife… This little bunny was so cute…but way fast, I’m glad I got at least one shot of him/her…there are bunnies all over the place, and I must admit I’m kind of like a kid when I see one… my friend can probably agree with that, because I was like… “did u see the bunny!? wow, so cute eh!?”

The park was also filled with these little guys…
chipmunk, under the tree.
…and a pretty bird!

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of cool shots of nature, up close and personal like… catching buds, or random branches of tress that look neat… that’s how I got these three shots!

Dear Mum…
Hope you have a fantastic day today…here I am living far away on yet another Mother’s Day… I mailed you a card…so watch for it in the mail…but just wanted to give you a ‘special’ post on the ‘old’ blog! Here’s a series of ‘gifts’ I got for you..but the only catch is you’ll have to come back to visit Winnipeg for them!

Some tulips for you!
I picked up a little bit ‘real-estate’ in Winnipeg for you…outside of your new digs… is a bench (and we all know how much you enjoy a nice bench!)  It’s a bit small…but not far from where I live!!!  It even has a ‘great’ security system because it’s in a ‘gated’ community…
Cabin in the park...
Your new house isn’t far away from my new house…you see the cost of buying you a house.. made me relocate too…but well it’s nice and cosy, and has a lot of nice fresh air!

Does this view look familiar to you mum?!

I even found some ‘pansies’ for you…we all know how much you love pansies in the spring!

I’m glad you were the kind of mum that supported me to make decisions about my life, and let me go where my heart lead..even though sometimes it’s far, far away…but even then…you still luv and support me!

You are the BEST MUM in the WORLD!
..so glad that no matter where I go… you are still only a phone call away
Can’t wait to see you for a MONTH in July….
luv from your only daughter,
Sarah

Exploring Assiniboine Park (a little bit)

Tonight after dinner…I talked my mum into going to Assiniboine Park… we ended up at the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden.. it was a kind of funny thing… it was just after 6pm…and the sign said the park was ‘closed’ from 6pm to 7am.. and there was a bit FENCE with spikes… so although mum and I walked to some benches… she really didnt’ want to get ‘locked’ in side the park for the night… (but I did manage to take a few photos…)
You can see the big ‘gate’ in the distance….
Here’s mum and I with the “school girl” statue… apparently she didn’t get the memo to look at the camera like we did!!
She was very intent at looking at the gate…so we hustled out of ‘gated’ portion of the park!
I stopped to take a photo of the ‘trumpet statue’….
It was here we found a ‘safe’ bench to sit on…. All the benches were in memory of someone… it kind of reminded me of ‘notting hill’ and the english ‘secret’ gardens… benches are a fun thing to sit on…. (I sat on the Genevieve Cody bench… while mum sat on the George Reid bench)

It got a little silly.. when I suggested we take photos of each other on our ‘benches’…. I’m not sure why… the wind picked up.. and here’s the shot mum took… which is kind of awesome in itself….as she doesn’t like taking photos… and well my camera I think scares her…

Here’s mum on my her bench… we were laughing at this point… because I took a photo of her feet… you see we have an AWESOME cousin.. that likes to take photos of her feet in different places…(it’s quite a cool concept..) so I took the photo of our feet… and I kept saying to her “raise them a little higher…yes that’s it… now flex… ok hold them…” just to see how ‘long’ she’d hold her feet in the air… well yes it was funny at the time..but well maybe not so funny as I type it!  Anyways… that’s why in the photo below mum is laughing!!
And one more photo of MY foot.. and my laughing mum……..
Thanks for flying out Mum… you know a week really isn’t long enough.. maybe I should have listened and let you come for the 10-12days you wanted to come for.. next time we’ll know!!  I luv you.. and I’m so glad you got to see my place, and where I work.. and some of the sites of Winnipeg!!
Safe travels tomorrow… luv ya, Sarah
