More Pictures from our Visit January 22-25,2008




A visit with friends in Ottawa January 22-25,2008

We finally managed to get out and have a wonderful visit with our dear friends in Ottawa. Can you believe it or not son of a pilot had not been on a plane yet so we ventured out on a four hour flight to Ottawa. Sam did wonderfully on the flight and was awake for the majority of the flight. He was pleased as punch in his car seat for the entire ride. Darren was on Daddy duty getting up to refresh Sam halfway through the flight.
Our friends met us at the airport and Sam took right to them. He was in admiration of their newest addition baby Georgia. After a wait for our numerous suitcases(the most I have ever pack for such a short trip). We piled in the van and headed back to their home where Nora was waiting for Sam. It was almost like we didn't have much of a time change as Sam acclimatized himself quite quickly having a bite to eat and off to bed after a little playtime.
The next morning had us loafing around eating another wonderful meal then packing the kids and ourselves up to do a little sledding. Fun was had by all until Sam & Nora had a meltdown seeing Darren & George do competition sledding.
That night George cooked us fine feast of Orange Chicken delicious! Once the kids were down we laughed and reminisced.
We approached the next day with caution as it was slightly cooler, after finally getting out of our PJ's we took the kids to an indoor playground now I don't know who was having more fun the Dad's or the kids.
A final evening of fabulous foods and drink was had as we eased into the day which we headed back home.

Thank you again!

Grandpa's Bday January 13,2007




Sunday night we celebrated Grandpa's Birthday. A beautiful roast beast dinner was served in his honor at Donna's home. All the kids were having fun. The older kids spent some time downstairs with the guitar hero then cared for some of the younger ones after dinner.

What's one more dog! January 10,2008

Our friends dog Utah has come to stay with us for a few days. She flew in from Calgary with Darren the other night. Sam is just giddy running up and down the hallway yelling both the dogs names. I don't know if he remembers the other times that Utah has visited us, either way it is nice to have her here. We ventured out to the beach again. I have to say it is a great place for all of us. Everybody runs and plays and then passes out when we return home how much better does that get.

On a side note with all of this crazy weather Sam is getting use out of both his boots. But I have started to test the true motherhood rules. The other day we returned from our outing I just looked and the boots wet and dirty. I chucked it all in to the washing machine. Now prior to Sam I would have never dreamt of putting boots in the machine maybe runners but hey I need it clean and fast! DONE!

Off to the beach January 5,2008

On this gusty January day we headed to the beach. We bundled up and head to the dog park part of the beach even in the blasting wind Bronwynne, Sam, Darren & I had a great time. Just like the Nova Scotia Days! So without further ado here are the pictures.

New Years December 31,2007

A bit late with this post but wishing all of you the best for 2008! Hope you also had a wonderful time ringing in the new year. We had the pleasure of going to Russ & Jill's for the evening. And yes Sam stayed up the whole evening, party animal! I can't honestly say that the ball dropping was the highlight of the evening. There are topics which I am unable to discuss in this general forum but could say the Rob was a highlight of the evening. We did have a report that he was not doing so well the following day but hope he is much better now.

Thank you again Russ & Jill for having us over to ring in 2008.
