One of the best things about living in and around Vancouver is that we aren't far from the ocean. There is something so therapeutic about heading down to the beach on a balmy February day and making a sandcastle with the boys. It was great to see their faces and imaginations at work as they built tunnels and roadways, borrowing buckets to see whether the water would make it through their canals.
Today we celebrate Sasha turning 6. It is amazing that the time has flown by so quickly and every time he grows a year older I feel a little sad that he can't stay 3, 4 or 5 for a little longer.
