First race school this weekend, Civic is not ready...

I can't believe the first race school is taking place this weekend. Sadly, I will not have my Civic at the track, as it is far from ready. The early spring has gone by so fast. Alex and I have both been busy with work, but I managed to take Good Friday off so that I could change the sunroof mechanism on the BMW. I was estimating it would take somewhere between 3 and 10 hours. It took 5, pretty much all day. You have to remove a lot of interior parts to take out the headliner! I'm so glad the sunroof works again though, especially as the weather is warming up.

On Friday night, my basketball team lost game 2 of the best-of-three finals, after we had won game 1. The deciding game will take place tomorrow evening.

Jules continues to be very entertaining. He is now able to string a couple of words together and make mini-sentences. He is also able to maneuver through various apps on Alex's Android tablet.

We went out for a nice walk on Easter Monday that took us to the Lachine Canal and Old Montreal. Here is a picture of Jules in the running stroller.

Jules received chocolate goodies from various family members, but, as we don't let him eat chocolate yet, I am the one who had to sacrifice myself and dispose of all that chocolate.

As far as car-spotting goes, spring is definitely here. I have seen a bunch of Ferrari's and other exotics in the past few days. I can't wait to get the Civic back with its new engine!
