This Just In...
Every year at Christmas when we get together with our extended family I try to get everyone together for a group photo. Now that the cousins are getting older and more mobile we usually do this when everyone first arrives before the kids are distracted by gifts or getting cranky because they're tired. Here are the two sides from 2012.
It seems like its been a long winter and so it felt good to get out on a sunny Sunday afternoon with some great friends at Bass Lake for some snow, exercise and fun. Major props to Mike S. for helping pull the girls in the stroller through the soft snow. Thanks Mike!
We've been living at out current house for just over 5 years and last night's lightning storm fried our 3rd cordless phone base unit. Yes, we did have in plugged in through a small surge protector but it was probably too old and could handle it. So poof there goes the money out of my wallet. Tomorrow I'm off to Staples to buy the same unit again (its on sale) so we can still use the handsets we already have.
We spent a weekend at Rock Lake campground in Algonquin Park with four other families. We enjoyed some early morning fishing and late-night evictions but overall it was lots of fun hanging with the gang.
The more children you have the fewer photos you take. These words are so true so this morning I was up with Phoebe while Tracy and Lucy were still sleeping and I did what I could to combat this behaviour. Here are a few shots of our almost 7-month old daughter.
Here's a few shots from our trip back to Tracy's stompin' grounds for the Annual Maple Syrup Festival 2012 version.
