Family Day in the Park

Yesterday was the official kick off to PRIDE week here in Saskatoon.  It began at 6:30 with a flag raising at city hall, followed by the opening of an art show at Lydia’s.  Today was family day at Kinsmen Park.  Lots of stuff going on all week (will include a schedule of events below the picture for today).  If you see me out and about, don’t hesitate to yell “Hey!  Tobi-Dawne!”.  😀

It was nice to see Trae and Jaden out today, even though we didn’t get to visit for long.  Boy oh boy has that boy grown.  LOL  I can’t believe how big he has gotten over the last few months.  They were the only folks we recognized, however Lily-Ann was recognized by someone…  and they figured if she was Lily-Ann, then I MUST be Tobi-Dawne.

So, here is the wee girlie – with her freshly painted up face.

Lily-Ann with her "princess spider man" face paint.  LOL
