Well ... I am having computer issues!
An issue really ... my computer crashed. I am awaiting word to find out if my photos and videos
from the last year have been saved ... you will find out when I do!
In the meantime ... my kid has rocked the poetry world.

She presented her Elephant poem in class and was chosen to go on .... to the 'stage' production
to recite it in front of the school. She quickly and without hesitation DECLINED!
I will discuss that in a future post. For now...I'm just unbelievably proud!

Way to go Cadence ....

Belated Birthdays

Better late than never ...
Some of the family gathered this weekend to 'celebrate' a couple of birthdays gone by. At this point, and our ages, it really is just an excuse to get together!

We started off with some cocktails and hors d'oeuvres ... OUTSIDE!!!

Cadence developed a 'love' for her uncle Jay ... she wants to know when Sean and I are going to an overnight meeting (so she can have a sleepover at her current favourite uncle's house). Soon Cadence ... SOON!!!!

The adventurous one left the rest of us oogling his dinner and wondering if we'd ordered the right thing!

An enjoyable evening ... long overdue!

Kickin' and Splashin' with the Cousins

We had a SUPER weekend!
We took a break from the cold and headed to the indoor waterpark.

The girls are dressed and ready to roll:

We took a break from the water and headed for a 'wild' dinner, complete with elephants and gorillas:

Although our accommodations fell a little short of our expected plans, we managed to snuggle in for some rest:

Already planning the next family getaway ....
It will be bigger and better in Mexico!
