And then Summer Happened Catch-up

This is it, I'm finally doing it!  Well.... that was a long break.  We had a family emergency, and then a family recovery, and we're getting ourselves back together now, and I think I finally can sit and post again.
I believe I left off promising some photos of our visit to my father's farm in Duncan, so I'll start with those.

And then we had a summer!  I think I'll let this video catch you up on that:

I've got a bunch of video from the fall as well, so over the winter break, I am going to sit down and put that together, and then I will share it here.  
Here's a picture from Holly's second birthday party:
Oh my goodness.  And that's all I've got time for at the moment!  Back soon! (ish!)

Installment #2 - a Visit to GG and Graypa

Here we go: Installment #2 of our trip to Victoria.  This is the long one - bear with me!  It was kind of a surprise, this trip to Victoria.  My Mom's family was having a reunion to honour my Grandma, and I had a wedding-free weekend, and realized that I really, really felt like I should be going.  I asked Mom if she could help me cover the cost for a ticket for Holly and I, and then Grandma and Grandpa called to say they would buy a ticket for Griffin.  Both they and my Dad offered to buy a ticket for Jai, but he couldn't work it out, with work.  Anyway, the long and short of it is, the kids and I were able to spend a wonderful, wonderful week, hanging out with family.  It was better than I could have hoped. My Grandma and Grandpa, my Mom, my Aunt, my Uncle, and all my cousins, with me and my kids, all under one roof (although some of them had to sleep in tents in the backyard) - total bliss.  The kids were in heaven.  
I very much hope we can do it again, next year.  But in the meantime, here's some of my favourite pics:

Next up: Installment #3 - a trip to the farm.
