Cousin Freya


On Thursday we said good-bye to cousin Freya and Aunty Lauren who were visiting us from England this last month. Uncle Brent went home 2 weeks ago but we enjoyed our visit with him as well. Jonathan and I both had lots of cousins growing up so it is a bit sad for us that our kids don't have the same novelty. Your cousins are your first best friends.
Here are a few pictures from our visit. We miss you already and we look forward to the next time we can all be together. Thank you for making the long trip to come spend time with us.

Tad Lake July-August 2013


It has been almost 2 weeks since we retuned from a wonderful week at Tad Lake. I have a whole album worth of favourite memories that I could post so it was hard to narrow it down to a select few. The first is one of my absolute favourites... David catching his first frog. To me this is a classic boy milestone which both warms and tears at a mothers heart. My son is growing up so fast. Also love the picture of him with Daddy when they've just got back from "playing" in the mud. He was so proud of how dirty he managed to get.
Angeline loved spending time with cousin Freya and we've collected lots of cute photos of them together. By the end of the trip she was also driving the kids car on her own.
Samara enjoyed spending time in the play house, going for walks and riding her run-bike. She isn't as fond of large groups as the older two but she soaked up lots of one on one.
Rebekah really enjoyed all the time outside, and many naps in the comfort of grandparents arms. She spent lost of time practicing walking and enjoyed all the praise she received.
We all enjoy the quality individual and group time spent with family.

Together at Tad Lake


On Saturday we returned from a week at Tad Lake. We all had so much fun and it was great to have a chance to spend time with family including Jonathan's sister Lauren, her husband Brent and their daughter Freya who are visiting from England. I have LOTS of great pictures and fond memories some of which I hope to share but for now I thought I would just post a few family pictures. Hope you also enjoy the Cake Smash pictures of Rebekah in my previous post. It was special to celebrate her first birthday while we were at the cabin.
